Forethought is great for me to get my lesson plans in place and posted each week for classes.

I am so impressed with the way Skyward approaches state reporting. It is not unusual for the state to make last minute changes that has everyone hustling to make things work. But Skyward is always right on top of things. I have never had to delay submitting...

There is nothing I can suggest at this time to improve the product.

I don't like how clunky it is. It is very difficult to move between frames and it is not visually appealing (and does not use visually stimulating colors, etc. to make navigation easier.
