  1. Move the "topic Tabs" Webmix buttons to the sides

    I Love this organizational tool, please place the tabs on the SIDE of the buttons, there is more then enough room to include them to the far left and right of the "buttons" this would allow us to SEE more of the categories right there. You should be able to have 28 tabs that you could use to switch screens much better the trying to use a "toolbar" at the top to add more, and scroll when you can see them!

      • Allow me to move markers and angle them around the center

        Markers (colored sections of tiles) can be resized but cannot be moved. Allow me to click the marker and drag it around the web mix intact with all of its tiles. Allow markers to automatically "bend" around the center app as I move markers around the center.

        • There should be more than one question on each tile.

          I use each tile of symbaloo as a learning station of my lessons. To evaluate what students had learned on it I require more than one question, also the option of "try again" I need it deactivated.

              • Folders!

                It would be great if we could make file folders for the webmixes instead of having them all open all the time with tabs.

                    Hi there,

                    If you selected the “x” on a webmix in the tab bar, you can recover it by clicking on the icon to the far left of the tab bar. In the My Webmixes side bar, you can scroll through all of your webmixes until you find the one you are missing. By clicking on the webmix, you will restore it to your tab bar.

                    However, if you selected the remove button at the top of the page, and then selected “Delete forever,” there is no way to recover the deleted webmix.

                    Best regards,
                    Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                        Hi there,

                        Thank you for using Symbaloo. If you’d like to copy a tile from a locked webmix, you will need to “stop updates” on that webmix. To do so, click the share button at the top of your webmix and a sidebar will popup, where you can click “stop updates.”

                        I hope this helps. Please email feedbackus@symbaloo.com if you have any other questions or concerns.

                        Best regards,
                        Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                      • Launch any Windows applications using Symbaloo (e.g. Word, Windows media, Control Panel, etc).

                        It would be great if we could launch any Windows application (Word, Excel, Windows Media, Control Panel, Radio readers etc.) from Symbaloo.

                        • Be able to link to documents not just websites.

                          I know you can link a document to a website and do it that way but its an extra step. If you could just upload a document like you can a photo that would be a timesaver and would make my symballo truly a one stop place for students to go.

                            I have become quite dependent on Symbaloo for bookmarks. I would hate to lose all of the links. Provide a way to archive and recover them in case of an accidental deletion, etc.

                                  Hi there,

                                  Thank you for using Symbaloo. When you log in to your Symbaloo account, you’re able to add columns to your webmix for your own personal viewing, but in preview, you’ll only be able to see the 10 × 6 webmix. 

                                  To add columns, go to ‘options,’ toggle ‘change webmix size,’ and from there you can add columns/rows.

                                  Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

                                  Best regards,
                                  Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
