    • Use gmail as your email database.

      Use Gmail as the email domain. It's much more user-friendly and allows for the sharing capabilities of Google Drive.

      • Have a notification sent to your email when your inbox is full

        Almost everyone I know forwards their email to somewhere else (I forward mine to Gmail) which means that every once in a while we don't realize but our inbox gets full and we don't realize for a few days and by then we could have potentially missed a couple of important emails. One of my friends' email clients automatically notifies him when his inbox is 90% full. That would be a very helpful feature to implement.

        • Stop making me update my personal information so often. It's annoying.

          Quit making me update my personal information everytime I want to access something. It's annoying and makes me hate Drexel.

            It’s not DrexelOne that’s making you do that. The university has set a policy that certain pieces of information need to be confirmed on a quarterly basis. You don’t actually need to change anything, but you do need to let Drexel know that the information that it has is still correct.

          • allow multiple deletions in email

            I need to delete multiple emails WITHOUT clicking each individually -- for example by clicking one, holding shift key, and then clicking another, then deleting the entire set of emails between the two "clicked" emails.
            Clicking one at a time is way too time consuming and is prone to too many mistakes. My mailbox is overloaded b/c it is so onerous to separately click each one.

              The mail app isn’t actually part of DrexelOne at all. (It’s a separate product that you can get to from DrexelOne, just like you can get to Learn, Banner, or the Benefits Service Center which is run off-campus by a private company.)

              That said, clicking the check box above the column of check boxes will select all of the messages. This might make it easier to do large-scale selections.

            • do not require me to type in my address every time I click on a BannerWeb link

              Whenever clicking on one of the Bannerweb Portals (i.e. SCDC services, Financial Services, Student Services, etc) a form shows up asking me to "Update Current Residence and Mailing Addresses". Why should it be supposed that by clicking on this link my address would have for any reason changed since the last time I clicked on it? Additional, many links also require you to confirm your telephone number and tax form agreement. There is also absolutely no reason for these forms to show up and they are simply an inconvenience and a waste of time, not to mention demonstrate the incompetence…

                Oh, how we wish that we could make the change that you suggest!

                While you and we may think that there’s little reason for those “pre-term screens,” each has gone through a review process that approved the general idea and the implementation. When you see them and how they work has little to do with the competence of the development staff.

                While we don’t like them either, we take comfort in knowing that they only appear once per quarter. You can take comfort in knowing that IRT tries to get other departments to show more restraint in the use of these screens.

              • Make the Academic Calendar easy to find

                I need to plan my academic, work, and personal life way ahead of time. It would be helpful to have a link to the Academic Calendar at one of the website's primary points of entry.

                  For the most part, the information and services in DrexelOne are specific to the signed-in user rather than general/public information. Also, there are many academic calendars at Drexel and a number of other important calendars.

                  The place were we go to get at all of that time-based information is http://Drexel.edu/calendars (which does a redirect to http://events.drexel.edu, but the former URL sticks in our heads). Once there, point to the Other Calendars menu and choose the one that you want. Some of them have lots of sub-choices, so there may be more clicking until you get to the area that you want.

                  Right now you can only move them to Junk e-mail. The option to add to SPAM is only through phone (android). Can't do in browser.

                    This is a cool idea, but it’s for the web mail site, not the DrexelOne site. We’ll let them know about it (there’s no UserVoice forum for the webmail service, so you won’t be able to track progress).

                    Thanks again!

                  • API endpoint that returns school closing status

                    It would be fantastic if a service was set up so we could easily find out school closing/delay information. It would also be neat if more data was opened up (building information, user authentication, other alerts, etc). I'm sure all the tech people could create some really awesome projects with this info

                      We actually don’t have such information. The decision to close or not isn’t entered into a database for us to expose. (It is keyed in to a freeform message that’s shown on the public website and sent via DrexelAlert, but that’s it.)

                    • allow users to add short cuts to welcome page. It doesn't make sense that reorganizing translates into more click for desired page

                      under settings users should be able to select different short cuts- maybe it is the home page for the course or the discussion board for the course but once logged in, there is room on the welcome page in the bottom left for a short cuts section under the Ask Drexel area. Instead of two clicks from the welcome page, I now have 3 in order to get to my class...

                        We don’t have a way to allow shortcuts. However, your suggestion helped us find a data defect that was requiring students to perform one too many clicks to get to the right place in Blackboard Learn. This has been fixed so everyone should have just two-click access to Learn for courses (once on the Academic tab and a second time on the course itself).
