  1. Ability to remove users

    Our user report is becoming unwieldy and full of staff who have left. We would like the ability to delete them. This would make user management/review a lot more efficient and accurate.

    (Yes, if they've left, their account should have been deactivated so they can't access, but this is equally something that should not be relied upon and we should be deleting them from all our systems too.)

      This is a valuable idea and user management is an area I would like us to investigate further.

      However its not in our near term development focus, so it has been moved to the longer term backlog. Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

    • Populating user registration fileds.

      When a user loggs in for the First Time, we know who they are.
      We can send their name and email address to prepopulate the Registration Fieds in the form.
      Please can this functionality be developped for Shibboleth Users.

      • Ability to manage user permissions

        After some discussion we feel it would be useful to have the ability to control user permissions. There may be instances where we would like to give library staff the ability to publish lists but would then like to remove that permission or change their role.

        • List Owner view of invited publishers and ability to revoke access

          A number of List Owners have multiple publishers they've invited to help with the management of their list. At this time they are unable to see who has and has not accepted their invites. Visibility on who has access rights to a list would be incredibly useful, particularly if this could also include the ability to revoke access to a list when for example that employee has moved on or is no longer associated with the course.

          • Improve Dashboard visibility and exportability

            The Dashboard contains analytics on usage, editions, metadata, views, etc, which would be very useful if it was more widely available. The current restriction to List Owners or List Publishers prevents other relevant and appropriate interested parties for accessing and assessing this data.

            In a Library managed model distributed across several campuses, we are not yet at the stage of giving teaching staff List Publisher roles and incorporating Reviews into our workflows. We also rarely have a single teaching member of staff, which makes List Owner not a useful feature either, being restricted to one person who has also created…

              We would like to review the dashboard can be shared with academics where permissions and roles are not given to them.

              However, this is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.

              Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

            • Gravatar + user profiles

              Prompted by comments from academics creating a profile.
              At the moment it is compulsory to use Gravatar in order to add a profile picture. Is it possible to have an alternative option to just upload an image file directly? An image is a friendly personalisation of lists, but the extra steps of joining Gravatar are putting people off!

                Low priority as it’s a cosmetic function, and the user can complete the task

              • Editing text in invitations

                When sending invitations to academic staff, we would like the standard text in the message template to be customisable to reflect our tenancy's configuration; without having to modify it each time we send it. For example, we have just asked Talis to add 'View Dashboard' to the role of List Creator. Currently, that does not appear in the list of permissions in the standard message template for that role.

                • Delete user profiles

                  We would like the ability to delete a profile when a member of staff leaves the institution. This will save us having a list of profiles of staff that no longer work at our institution.

                    • Automatic user creation upon first Shibboleth logon.

                      It is possible for most Shibboleth IdPs to pass the data that is collected during account creation automatically.
                      It would be a nice addition if the user accounts were created automatically rather than the user filling out the new user registration form.

                        We did spend a bit of time looking into this last year and its something we would still like to achieve. However, this is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog. It will be merged with a similar existing idea.

                      • Resend invites - remove option when invitation is accepted

                        If an invite has been accepted, say, 5 days ago, why do we still see the option to 'Resend invite'? Surely, there would be no need to resend an invite if one had already been accepted. Could the button be removed from invites that have been accepted, please?
