Needs new features The one thing that I would love is more personalization a feature that allows home work to be ordered by date due cos let's be honest we all know that we do it the night before also an ability to set priority homework. However the UI is quite nice and it's very easy to navigate through. WORST part tho is that I get home work now left right and centre
Milk app A couple of points that would improve the use. 1. Being able to see what my son has received achievement points and behaviour points. 2. The school updating timeously. My son insists he has hand homework in but not marked as received for several days. 3. Once received shouldn't the homework assignments be archived in some way. At the moment my son shows as having 9 outstanding pieces of homework. But 3 are and have been shown as received for days.
Good Much easier to use than a physical planner. However, there are a couple of small issues. It would be useful to separate 'To Hand In' homeworks from 'To Do' Homeworks. Also, for some unknown reason, my milk app is a day behind what it should be even when my phone is giving the correct date.which causes a lot of confusion. However, I like the app despite these issues and small updates, such as the update on the PC version would make it even better.
Needs improvement Needs improvement. Overall the concept of the app is a good idea however there are many flaws. 1-sort out notifications as many came through unesseceraly, nothing appears. 2- make it into 3 sections like the website so there is a to do list so items completed but not handed in/received do not give you notifications. As I have 36 pieces outstanding but I only have 1 to complete. 3- make it easier to access other functions like grades as they don't show up 4- add feature to make own reminders, not milk set.
Disappointing - needs work... There are several frustrating things about the Milk Planner, which make the app less enjoyable to use than it should be. Once a piece of Homework is marked as Received, it should disappear from the 'All' homework section. It is not useful at all to be forced to build up a log of previous homeworks, through which one must search to find current pieces. Also, there should be more filters within the Homework tab - 'To do', 'To hand in' and 'Received' sections would be more useful than 'Current'.
Too many issues It constantly kicks me out. First it shows "could not connect to Milk server", then it locks my account for trying to log in a second time..and what's with the "you need to log in again to proceed"?!? I hadn't logged out and it made me log in again after which it locked my account.... This happens for the second time... If it was optional to download and use this,I would have already uninstalled.
