  1. Prioritising editing window size for smaller devices

    At present on smaller devices the editing window only accounts for about a quarter of the screen height only.

    In an example I received only two of the editable fields are visible, making working on them difficult - while the tenancy header and Item title take up the majority of the screen.

    It would be great for future development in this area to bring the editing window to the fore

  2. Review jobs

    After utilising the rollover function in the Create lists, targeting a time period for a large number of lists the Review Jobs screen displays the numbers of lists that were completed or failed. For us to identify which lists failed (so we can fix the issue) it would be useful if we could click on the numbers and see a listing of the Title and/or Hierarchy code of those papers. Thanks.

  3. Student note formatting in New List View

    In New List View student notes it would be helpful to have some formatting ability. At the moment all the text is all clumped together and you cannot add spaces or dot points. With some formatting features it would make student notes clearer to read.

  4. Review Screen: Pin Important Notes to the top of the screen OR free text field at the top

    [Screenshot attached of idea]
    In order to aid communication between reviewers and enhancing our ability to quickly following up where we left off, please can we have the option to pin an important review note to the top of the screen? (e.g. how much stock was ordered, or what eBook licence the eBook has)

    This would enhance our ability to see at a glance where we are with the item. We would still have the option of scrolling down to see the extended work log below.

    Failing that, a free text field where we can add important information at the…

  5. Enable "Share item" for List Publishers / editors - New List View/Edit

    At present, if you are a List Publisher / in edit mode in the new List View/Edit, you don't have the option to 'share' an item from the drop down menu / ellipsis when you're in a list. See my screenshot "No Share".

    The only way you can bring this up is if you go to View > As Student, and then the option to Share the item is visible. See my screenshot "Yes Share".

    It is primarily list editors and academics who need to share items, particularly with the library if there is a broken link or the content…

  6. Reviews screen - move the Vendor information below previous review outcomes/decisions

    With several vendors now integrated into the Vendor section in the Review screen - and a lot of information in particular often coming from Askews & Holts - this section has now pushed the display of previous outcomes and comments for a given item off the bottom of the screen.

    This is unhelpful as library staff usually need to see previous outcomes/comments *before* deciding whether further purchasing is required - so in effect this information is in the wrong order.

    Could the vendor information please be moved below the outcomes/comments section?

  7. "View and Export" in List View/Edit 2.0

    In the first screenshot from Broadminster University, the Talis demo tenancy,, it looks as if you have the option to "View and Export" from the list when you are in edit mode. See my first attached screenshot.

    But all that I can see when I am editing is a "View" drop down. If I want to see my export options,

    I have to click View > As Student, and it's only then I am presented with options to export to PDF, CSV, etc. (see second attached screenshot)

    This idea is to enable the "View & Export" button for all those…

  8. Bulk assign list publishers to lists

    We need the ability to bulk assign list publishers to more then one list.

    For example, we have departments within the university where the populating of material within reading lists is done by one team within the department, rather than the individual module leader. When new members of staff start with this team, we are often asked that they be assigned as a list publisher to around 100 lists at a time. There is no current option to do this other than go through each list manually. This is time consuming at a particularly busy period for us.

  9. compulsary heirarchy code/customisable text

    When creating a new list, it would be helpful if the hierarchy code select was mandatory. Academics often create lists in addition to the lists we have rolled over for them, and don't attach these lists to hierarchy codes. This creates issues with linking to the learning management system, with future rolling over of lists, and when they submit digitisation requests. They will add a course codes when submitting their digitisation request that doesn't necessarily match the format of our hierarchy codes i.e. LIBTEST 101 vs LIBTEST101. This can result in duplicate digitisations and inaccurate reporting. This might be mitigated…

  10. Option to add a chat widget

    We'd like to be able to add a Springshare chat widget to reading lists. We have this available on our website and in our discovery system and it's a great help when students come up against inevitable problems with finding or accessing resources.

  11. add bookjackets to 'View & Export' -> 'PDF - List'

    A visually-impaired student wants to print a reading list incl. bookjackets to help identify books on shelf.

    Unfortunately, the attempted workaround of printing the webpage does not help as list items not rendered appear as grey blank boxes.

    Is there anything Talis can do to support this disability further?

  12. Be able to filter to new edition alerts in reviews

    It would be useful if you could filter to the items that have an alert for a new edition rather than just alerts in general. This would help to identify new editions without having to go through every item in the list.

  13. Change the way notifications work

    When doing reviews I would like there to be a better notification system. Currently you have to click through items one by one to select outcomes. If only 2 books have be marked as order required for a large list they can get lost. Someone has to go back into the review and click through each item to find the items needing to be ordered and order them and mark them as on order. Once they are ordered someone has to then click through each item one by one to find and update them. Is it possible to put certain…

  14. Make the 'Request a new digisation' window draggable

    In List edit we can see a student note to e.g. read certain pages. When the request digisation window opens it obscures the note section of the list. Can you make the window draggable so the note can be referred to and details checked?

  15. Warning when removing bookmark with digitisation attached

    Would it be possible for a user to be warned when they are removing a bookmark with a digitisation attached? Or for the Reading List team to receive a notification when someone has removed a bookmark that had a digitisation attached?
    We find that academics remove the bookmarks without telling us that the digitisation is no longer required (they seem to think that removing the bookmark terminates the digitisation) - the digitisation stays live in TADC but is no longer accessible via the list. At the moment the process of doing our monthly stats identifies when there is a discrepancy…

    With New List Edit the Delete warning is already much stronger, however, this specific request has come up in feedback and we plan to address this with clearer messaging about the impact on Digitisations. This is not currently scheduled but we will update as this moves to the top of our priorities.

  16. New filter in All lists or All items by hierarchy level

    As a new user to TARL I have been starting to use the reports module and I was surprised that amongst the other filters there is not an option in All Lists and All List items to filter by where the list is in the hierarchy (e.g. module / course or programme).
    We use the lists attached to modules and those attached to courses very differently. The former are aimed at current students and the latter at prospective students, so I wish to consider the data generated by these two types of lists separately.
    I have come up with a…

  17. Enable users to be given publishing roles for all list under a particular subject/department

    Enable users to be given publishing roles for all list under a particular department or subject area. This would be really useful for administrative staff who assist with maintaining lists in their department. Users could have roles for each list in the English department, for example.

  18. Ability to delete previous outcomes in review

    In the review section there is a trial of all outcomes for an item across all the different lists. This can be very useful to see how the item has been dealt with elsewhere by different people. For example the first outcome may be stock sufficient but later when added to a new list it was then set to be ordered. Having this trail of outcomes if very good. However, there may be occasions where an outcome is set in error or someone hasn't understand the process correctly. In these instances we would like the ability to delete the previous…

  19. Notes appearing in reviews

    This has been raised before but a while ago so I'm going to raise it again.

    We would like notes to appear in the review section. When we don't have a book in stock we bookmark the Blackwell's page for it. However, sometimes we can't find the book online or in the case of some journals, there isn't a website for it. In these cases we add a note to say which journal it is. When we then come to review we don't see the items that aren't in stock and are notes so we are having to view the…

  20. Show importance in item view

    It would be really helpful if you could see the importance of an item in a reading list when viewing the individual item. For example from the screen showing in the attachedf screenshot. This would be especially helpful when going from TADC using the "view item in reading list" option.
