    • 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!

      • 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.

        • Show more tiles when sharing

          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.

          • Add mouseover pop up desciption of a tile

            My students need more details of each tile than just the title. Would be great if they could mouse over a tile and see a longer description.

              Hi there,

              Thank you for your great feedback. I will forward this on to our developers, and hopefully they will be able to work it into Symbaloo in the future.

              Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! Thank you for using Symbaloo.

              Best regards,
              Lauren | Team Symbaloo

              • 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.

                • 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

                  • choose your own icon from icon files you have on your computer

                    Many ppl have icon files on their computer and it could make bookmarks more meaningful

                        • Great Symaloo Support

                          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!

                              Hi there, 

                              Thank you for using Symbaloo. Unfortunately, there is no official way of collaborating on a webmix. However, you can edit a webmix, share it with a colleague, then have them add and edit the webmix and send it back and forth between each other until you have a finished webmix. 

                              We apologize for the inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns. 

                              Best regards,
                              Lauren | Team Symbalo

                            • 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. )

                                • Allow multiple people to have editing rights on a webmix

                                  I'm pretty sure this idea has already been requested, and I voted for it, but it still hasn't been addressed. When we share a webmix to a friend, business partner, family member or student, we should be able to give them permission to use AND TO EDIT the webmix. Who's with me? Lol

                                    Hi there,

                                    Thank you for using Symbaloo. Our developers are aware of this suggestion and they are working on creating this feature within Symbaloo.

                                    Best regards,
                                    Lauren | Team Symbaloo

                                  • give the same icon selections when using shortcut

                                    When using the shortcut function, you do not have as many options for icons or colors, it would be nice if the shortcut would take you to the menu for full icon customization.

                                        I really want to set my background so it will stop moving.

                                        • I wish I could choose to remove the center App and just have 8 more tiles.

                                          Ditto on the symbaloo love. I never use the google, youtube, or any other center apps because I have them built into my browser. For me personally this means the center is wasted space. I would prefer to add 8 more tiles in the center. Please make this a settings option so that people that do use it, still can.

                                            Hi everyone!

                                            Thank you so much for using Symbaloo. Unfortunately you cannot remove the center Google widget, but you can change it to other search engines, such as Sweet Search for educational use, or to a time, date, or many of the other widgets we have.

                                            To change the center box in a regular Symbaloo account, go to account preferences and you’ll be able to change it in there. In order to change the center box in a premium account, you will need to send feedbackus@symbaloo.com and we can change it for you.

                                            If you’d like to add more tiles, you also have that choice when choosing “options” at the top of your webmix. From there you can add rows to the sides of your webmixes, but these new rows will not appear in the webmix preview option when sharing your webmix link with others, since it only displays the…

                                          • Don't see your idea?

                                          How can we make Symbaloo even more useful?
