  1. Extend the Copy to my bookmarks function

    Enable academics to copy an entire list worth of bookmarks from an existing list to their bookmarks folder.
    Really useful where lists have been created by admin or library staff and then passed on to the academic to manage.

  2. Allowing attachments of PDFs

    ... (subject to copyright) for user created bookmarks. There's no telling where online reports etc get moved to, and uploading to a public dropbox and then pasting the URL seems long-winded.

    We won’t be focusing on this now due to low votes in the 2012 Ideas Survey. However, we do feel that the ability to attach documents to reading lists would be useful, so its in our longer term backlog

  3. Adding a favicon

    When we go to our tenancy of Aspire, there is no favicon, however it should be using our Brunel University one.

    Adding this should either be included in implementation, or should be added to the branding console (though it's not the sort of thing you want to change often, more like the main institution logo).

  4. Campus identifier

    We have modules which run at more than one of our campuses. We would find it useful to be able to identify which reading lists are run at which campuses so that we can purchase the relevant resources.

    We will not be focusing on this idea now due to low votes in 2012 Ideas Survey. Multi-campus support is something we wish to investigate in the future so this has been placed on our longer term backlog

  5. Acquisitions - introduce the idea of 'states'

    To enable the Acquisitions Library Review process to support more complex workflows, it could be extremely useful to introduce the idea of 'states' (or similar) to lists under Review. Customers could select how many 'states' their workflow necessitates and what labels they wish to attach to 'State 1', 'State 2' and so on (e.g. 'Liaison Librarian review', 'Link checking', 'Acquisitions processing' etc). Lists submitted for review could arrive in 'State 1' and then be moved to 'State 2', 'State 3' as this review process progresses. The view of lists under Review could then be filtered according to State (e.g. 'Show…

  7. Ability to know who deleted a node

    We just discovered that a module had disappeared and Support were only able to tell us that someone had deleted it. It was definitely loaded and viewed in Aspire before. It is disappointing that we can't tell who deleted it when; can this be made possible, either for us or Support?
    I do realise this Idea partly relates to the "More granular set of edit node permissions required" - if that were implemented, the ability to delete a node could be tied down much more and at least the pool of potential deleters would be more limited!
    I realise this…

  8. Extend ISBN API

    Two extensions to the ISBN look-up API would significantly extend its utility -

    1. For each matching list return the numeric value of the priority status of the item (1, 2, 3)

    -- It would be very useful to be able to display importance alongside occurence

    2. Support 'OR' requests (allowing multiple ISBNs to be added to a single call)

    -- With a JSON [or other] string for each ISBN match

  9. New 'Conference Paper' Resource Type

    Our Academic Liaison Team have requested that a new item type of 'Conference Paper' be added to the Item drop-down menu.

  11. Library Review report - submission to completion

    Submission to Completion reporting - for a given date range, report on how long library reviews took from the time of academic request of a review of a List to library completion. (Currently the All Reviews screen itself does not timestamp the Completed action; but libraries are likely to want to report on their processing times for submitting lists [perhaps against SLAs, KPIs and the like].)

    The reviews refresh will be ensuring we capture this data but in the first instance will not be providing this report. We will return to this once the new reviews is up and running 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.

  12. network file bookmark

    not sure if I missed something, one of our academics asked if it were possible to bookmark a network file
    file://server/share/path/reallyUseful.doc

    naturally it would only be visible inside the university, so a restricted access label would be required

    I have suggested locating it on a web page or eLearning site, but he would like the option anyway

  13. Allow the default invite text and subject line to be set at tenancy level

    At the moment the default email invite text and subject line are fixed - on completion of this story, they will be configurable at tenancy level.

  14. Allow invites scoped to multiple points in the hierarchy to be sent in one batch

    At the moment an administrator must send a separate invite email for each list or module they would like a user to have permissions over.

    On completion of this story administrators would be able to send one invite allowing users the same permission over multiple lists or modules.

  15. Improved handling of expired sessions

    When a user has left their Aspire view inactive for a period of time sufficient for their session to expire, clicking on a permissions based action (like an Edit action) produces the plain text error

    You do not have permission to edit this resource (403)

    Could such a expired session request be routed instread back to the Tenancy appropriate login? screen?

  16. Allow users to request roles rather than waiting to be invited

    At the moment an academic has to wait to receive an invite to edit a list from a system administrator. Academics who are proactive and have discovered the system have no way of gaining an entry point.

    On completion of this story they would proactively be able to request various roles. The request is added to a queue and at some future point an administrator can approve or deny the request.

  17. Allow invites to be created without sending emails

    At the moment an email invite is sent for every invite issued - even if the user is already has an active login to Aspire. This can result in multiple emails sitting in a user's inbox.

    Rather than emailing invites to users, administrators can elect to suppress the email invites.

    In this circumstance, users are asked to accept invites the next time they log into the system.

  18. Tag items

    Is it possible to be able to tag / mark items as 'Electronic Resource' for online journal articles and e-books etc and then be able to re-group the list to display all electronic resources together?

    Tagging is something we plan to address and it is in backlog. However, it is not yet scoped or prioritised but we will update this idea as we progress.

  19. In-line Box of Broadcast (BoB) materials

    BoB is a system that is going to be very important in the HE sector in the near future - either from the National BoB or locally implemented. Cambridge Imaging and BUFVC are the external partners to talk to on this.

  20. Student reporting lack of copies

    Students should be able to report the inability of accessing materials. This should be passed to central e-mail account (to library not academic)
