[Results & New Feature!] Flagging Outdated Feedback

Well the results are in and one thing was very clear. Teachers do NOT want feedback removed. It basically came down to flagging it and keeping it public, or taking it private. With flagging and keeping public having a 10% greater response that is the direction we will take.

We have just launched the new feature and will be listening for any input from teachers. Contact us to let us know if you like it.

How it works

  1. On the individual feedback page, there is now a “Status” field where you can flag a feedback entry as “Current” or “Outdated”.
  2. Once flagged it will be submitted to Five Apple Feedback for review, so that we can ensure the feature is not being abused.
    The first time feedback is flagged it changes from “Current” to “Possibly Outdated” the second time it is flagged it is changed to “Outdated”
  3. Should teachers choose to edit their feedback entry to update it, they will have the option to change the status back to “Current” Again, only the original feedback submitter is able to edit their feedback.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the poll and submitted ideas! We love hearing about the features you like, don’t like and would like so that we can further develop this site to meet your feedback needs. Please note that we will not be able to add every requested feature, but we do take them all into consideration.

What’s next?

With all of the new features we have been adding we are going to slow it down, and start creating a video series. It’s focus will be to educate teachers on how to get the most from Five Apple Feedback.
