  1. mobile improvements

    The browser in the mobile android app is poor, therefore, the mobile app is useless. I would appreciate the option to open a link in the default browser. (The mobile version of Symbaloo is horrible... does not render properly. )

      Hesham from Team Symbaloo was so helpful in troubleshooting my issues. He stayed with me for multiple attempts and finally fixed the issue. Thank you so much!

      • Drag and Drop Feature in Lesson Plan

        I have been trying out Symbaloo Lesson Plans and I LOVE it. I used my first lesson with the kids last week and they said they really liked being able to work at their own pace. (And that was unsolicited feedback, which really says something.) My one complaint - and it's a big one - is that you cannot drag and drop tiles into a new order or position. This is CRITICAL. Teachers should be able to add in a new resources without having the redo subsequent tiles. If it weren't for this issue, I would share this program with…

                  • I checked out one of the new Symbaloo lessons - the CARS website evaluation.

                    I checked out one of the new Symbaloo lessons - the CARS website evaluation. The Vokis don't play all the way through, the second website for the moon doesn't appear, and in the very beginning, under Accuracy, the word Accusation, as one of the answer choices, isn't spelled correctly. I cannot recommend this to my teachers, if everything does not work correctly from the beginning!

                    • Update to the mobile app to look cleaner and easier to navigate

                      Maybe rotate the screen to give more room so you can make all the links fit on one page

                      • Have your system backup faster!

                        I have to take an End Of Course exam, and the Symbaloo, along with internet explorer are not helping me through it. I've been sitting here for an hour because my test isn't working.

                              I created a symbaloo that has 4 tiles on either side of the center search tile. Yet, only 3 tiles on either side show when I share it. I want to share the ENTIRE symbaloo, including those two outside columns of tiles.

                              • Better explanations on basic operations such as "Static" and "Publish" vs "Republish".

                                More support on Sharing in general. Sharing is one of the best features, but can I share a Symbaloo with a Collaborator? With a premium account I can create users, but can I share a Webmix with a user? Does publishing a premium account publish all my Webmixes?

                                Too many questions, not enough support.

                                        Hi Symbaloo-ers,

                                        You can absolutely do this by sharing the webmix, and then saving the URL provided with the shared webmix. Search the URL in a new tab, and then press the “Add this webmix” button. It will add it to your account!

                                        It will appear with a lock on it. The lock means that it will update every time you update your original webmix. To unlock it, make sure to go to the Share button while the locked webmix is open, and in the side bar select the “Stop updates” button.

                                        Thank you for using Symbaloo! If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know by pressing the Contact Support button.

                                        Best regards,
                                        Emma | Team Symbaloo

                                      • Text to separate areas or classify different types of links in a mix

                                        I really need to organized the links and it is nice to have the buttons but I would like to put a text based block and border so the links are classified and organized better. One overall title does not give me enough space to identify my links.

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
