  2. hide section

    Currently there is no option to hide/unhide sections of lists, we would like to see the option to allow gradual release of lists, and to publish those sections which are ready before a list is complete.

    23 comments  ·  List Editing  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    We have been reviewing this idea following on from the list edit work that has been taking place and would like to now explore this piece further.

    This is an example of how an idea may be declined at a point in time but as we explore and develop new areas we do review all ideas past and present and consider them all.

  3. copy completed review message to email

    When completing a review, it is possible to send a message to the person who started the review. However, once sent, the content of that message is lost to the sender.

    It would be useful to copy in ones own email address in on the message so that a record can be kept of the communication.

  4. Additional supported sites for embedded video

    Youtube and Vimeo are currently supported in Talis to embed videos within the full metadata view of a bookmark.
    We've recently subscribed to EduTV, which is an excellent database of videos and playlists, and would like to have the same embedding for this resource.
    We also have a large collection of streamed media hosted in-house (both off-air and commercial material as is permitted under copyright provisions), and would like these to be similarly embedded within Talis.
    This was originally submitted as a support ticket question but it's been suggested that I raise an idea instead.

    backlog  ·  Keji Adedeji responded

    A simple integration in the vein of the YouTube & Vimeo integrations can be dealt with via support as a bookmarking recogniser request. A tighter integration to support authenticated content will require liaising with EduTv to understand the requirements and will need to be planned.

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

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

  5. Linking to more than one bookshop

    We would like to be able to link to more than one bookshop as then we can support our local bookshop via Hive and also offer Amazon purchasing for items not available locally. Also this would enable us to use the Amazon images while still offering access to the local bookshop

    this is an interesting idea and whilst it has low votes and there are no plans currently to implement, i am keeping this under review for consideration

  6. Standards as a resource type

    Could we have Standards as a resource type?

  7. 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?

  8. Leveraging coverage data for Journals and articles provided for Google Scholar library links

    Libraries provide data on journal and article coverage for the Google Scholar library links program via a weekly file produced by their open url providers

    Could Talis Aspire also utilise this data?
    Possible uses would be
    - indicate on lists and when bookmarking that full text is available
    - produce reports when digitised items are available in subscriptions
    - produce reports when articles on lists are dropped from subscriptions

  9. Improved reading intentions

    The latest phase 4 release has altered the way a user's reading intentions are displayed. At present the can be set at the list level and reviewed on the user profile screen.

    One problem with this arrangement is that a user needs to go back to the original reading list to change the reading intention or alter the note, even though they can link through to the original item.

    I would like to see the ability to change the reading intentions either from the user profile screen or at the item level, in addition to existing list-level reading intention management.

    improving the display of reading intentions is something we would like to address, but is currently not planned

  10. OPAC link in review visible on main list

    It would be good to have the option to set a filter or add an extra column in the initial list screen in Review so that you can see the OPAC link. This would allow the reviewer to view existing stock without having to open the title. This would save time where titles are in-stock and copies sufficient

    We are exploring some ideas around this as part of the reviews work we are doing

  11. coutts oasis widget to search on title rather than ISBN

    The coutts oasis widget links on ISBN which limits its effectiveness for searching for later editions, it would be better if it searched on title.

    We had some discussions with Coutts towards the end of last year about this and they need to do some work. As they are migrating to a new version of their site iPage, they advised that they would make the changes for the new site. We will need to touch base with them again to catch up on their migration and plans for implementing the requested change

  12. 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.

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

    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.

  13. Organising 'My Bookmarks'

    It is becoming really important for our academics to be able to organise their bookmarks. We know tags are the currnet thinking with filters- but some academics have a mental block against this. They are so used to having very structured resources/citations and without the ability to oraganise and sort (things like author- title- date- type- notes/modules ....) the resources within their 'library'

    We are currently refactoring the My Bookmarks screen to work in a way that allows users to sort and filter more effectively. Although this won’t include tagging or sorting yet, it does provide the framework for further options in this area.

  14. Report on number of lists linked to higher levels in hierarchy than node list is linked to

    We have a requirement to report on the number of lists linked to a faculty and number of lists linked to a department. Our hierarchy goes faculty>department>module. Lists are directly linked to modules. The Hoerarchy Snapshot Report allows us to report on number of lists attached to amodule but not number of lists attached to a higher level in the hierarchy.

  15. Create a manual bookmark from the editing page

    It would be useful to have the option to create a new bookmark from the editing page, rather than having to go to My Bookmarks to select this.

  16. Display sections on their own

    Related to the idea of compressing/opening sections (in this idea: http://ideas.talisaspire.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-ideas/suggestions/3160575-compressing-sections) I'd like some facility to be able to link/jump to a specific section or sub-section of a list, and display it in a way that is uncluttered by the rest of the list.

    Ideally this would mean jumping to a section and the display automatically compressing all the other sections. The user could expand / navigate to them if they wanted.

    Alternatively the user is taken to a version of the display that only contains the specific section, with a hyperlink back to the full list.

    The reason…

  17. Batch assign list ownership

    We should be able to make a user an owner of multiple lists at once, selecting lists by school/department/a search (e.g. MB1* in the module code), with them appearing in a list so we can untick any necessary (i.e. don't just offer us the chance of "all lists in this department" or nothing - we always have to bank on there being exceptions!).

  18. Publish alerts

    At the moment we have alerts to let us know when a user has requested a review of their list, it would be great if we could have an alert in place for when a list is published. This way we could keep track on what is being published and whether they are being sent for review first.

    I am setting this idea as Investigation. Whilst we will not be implementing a notification, we will explore how to indicate items on published lists which have not been reviewed as part of the work we will be doing in the reviews refresh. I have changed its category to Acquisitions so it lives with the other ideas we are exploring as part of that theme. It has also been moved to the archive forum.

  19. Bookmarking from PubMed and using PMID

    Our Bioscientists would like you to improve bookmarking from PubMed and to be able to use the pub med id pmid number like DOI.

    PMID can be used like DOI to retrieve citation information for an article. Both 360 link and SFX openurl resolvers can create a link and a citation using a PMID. Could you please consider adding this functionality to Talis Aspire

    This idea has been moved to the archive forum.It is something we would like to investigate further but is a lower priority than other items at the moment. We will review this again when looking at bookmarking improvements.

  20. Extending the Bookmarking API to recognise Chapter Author

    Extending the Bookmarking API to recognise Chapter Author.

    Currently the Bookmarking API does not recognise Chapter Author, so that any author included in the API is considered to be the Book Author.
    It would be useful if a Chapter author could be included which would appear in the Chapter part of the record and therefore also be displayed on the full list.
