  1. Include edition field in item reports

    The all items report includes most of the metadata that belongs to an item, but does not include the edition statement. Doing so would make it possible to see at a glance what items are added to lists and how they are formatted - identify edition statements in words, for example, which have implications for reference formatting. The editions functionality in reviews does something different, and does not allow you to create reports like this. Given how few fields there are in item records, we should be able to report on all of them.

    We have released a change to the All List items report export, you can now view the following data:

    Edition

    This will help you identifying editions used in reading lists across your tenancy.

  2. All Lists report to flag TADC digitisations

    The All Lists report should include a column showing the TADC digitisation availability in some way - bundle URL or TADC record number would be useful. I noticed this absence when using the All Lists report to check on chapters which might require digitisation/purchase as ebooks across our tenancy.

    We have released a change to the All List items report export, you can now view the following data:

    Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC) Request ID
    TADC Request Status
    TADC Bundle ID

    This resolves the issue raised here on knowing if an item has a digitisation linked to it and how to locate it.

    If there are further changes you would like to see please raise a new idea.

  3. Include further bibliographic info in All List Items report - specifically book publisher

    We are using report data to trigger ordering and identify high demand text books across thousands of reading lists. Having publisher information in the report would make our workflow substantially more efficient. I'm hoping this may be included as part of the work to improve Reviews.

  4. Reporting: adding web address data when exporting from a reading list

    When viewing a list in 'My Lists', there is an option to "Export". This provides a table with the following columns: Date Added, Title, Type, Item Link, Local Control Number, ISBN10, ISBN13, ISSN, EISSN, DOI, Importance, Note for Student, and Note for Library.

    At Monash, we would like to have the web address included in the fields that are exported. It could sit adjacent to the 'DOI' column. This will be advantageous to us because we have to suppress and unsuppress our links to digitised items for copyright reasons and we would be able to identify the digitised items using…

  5. Ability to filter on 'Lists Reviewed' within the All Lists report

    As we are beginning to start planning for 2014/15 reading lists, we are trying to establish an effective method for tracking whether a list has been Reviewed or not.

    The All Lists report has all the other fields required for such a report - is it possible for you to add:
    'List Reviewed' = Yes / No as a filter on this report, Show the 'Review Status' as well show the 'Last Reviewed date' in the report so that we could manage Reviews more effectively?

  6. Include the author in All List Items reports

    We would find it really useful to include the author in the All List Items report. Not all items on the current report include an ISBN which means it can be difficult to work out which item is required for books with common titles and without having to constantly check back to the original record on Aspire.

  7. Student Number column in the All Lists reports

    It would be incredibly useful for an additional column to be provided in the All Lists reports for 'Student Number' in the way that we currently have 'Item Count'.

    This would mean we could view how many students were being catered for by the Talis Lists in varying time periods / schools / etc.

    Currently the only way to gain a snapshot of student numbers for a defined set of lists is to go in to each list manually and pull the information out one at a time.

  8. All List Items Report to include Student Notes

    We would find it useful for the All List Items Report to include Student Notes, just like it includes Library Notes.
    With a Library managed list building model, we would like to use this as an overall quality control including checks for typos and consistency of message and to check on bookmarks created for chapters which we weren't able to scan due to copyright restrictions (as we include a Student Note to direct the student to the chapter in this instance).
    At the moment, it's only possible to see this information list by list.

    Cheers,

    SvG

  9. Report on number of copies in the library

    A report that shows the number of copies of each title in stock without having to check each title individually. this would be useful for acquisitions if you use a formula. You could see quickly if you had the right ratio of copies for the number of students on the course

    We have reviewed this item and due to availability being a live feed and constantly changing it is not possible to report on the number of copies you have in stock in a report format.

    We have though as part of the reviews refresh displayed the library stock in the reviews screen so when making purchasing decisions you can quickly see how many items you have and the format they are available in, this also provides you with the current availability of those items. You can then use this information in line with your formulas if you use them as part of your ordering process.

  10. Sorting Reports by Date Created and Last Edited

    Hi.
    We'd find it usefull if you could sort the "All Lists" report by Date.

  11. Adding the Publisher as a field to the 'All List Items Report'

    This would allow us to sort all of our essential texts by publisher which would help us to target e-book negotiations with publishers where we know that we require a large number of texts

  12. "Library notes" in report

    It would be useful to be able to produce a report showing "library notes" alongside item information (ideally a column in the All List Items report). This would make it easier for us to identify new / changed library notes, regardless of whether the list had been submitted for review.

  13. Archived Lists report should show who archived the list

    Simple common sense request. Useful information in the system should be accessible in general, but this is a specific one that I was advised to add as an Idea by Support..

    This report was not included in the new live reports, but this functionality has been provided in the All lists report

  15. Add report for seeing usage (logins etc) by academics

    There is still no way we can see who is using Aspire and how often. This was discussed as a key area of reports way back at the MIS day and is essential for supporting academic engagement strategies. We need to know which academics have logged in to Aspire, when they last logged in, how often they log in, which academics haven't logged in, all over user-selected date ranges.

  16. Create a filter for Aspire role in All User Profiles report

    The All User Profiles report would be improved with a filter for Aspire role. There's no way of knowing who has what role unless you export the spreadsheet and filter it that way, or look at individual users

  17. New Report - Published Lists that have not yet been sent for Review

    Our set up allows academics to publish their own lists, but we are aware of occasions when some lists where the a Request a Review has not been sent. Could a report be set up to identify published lists that have not been sent for review showing the date published.

    We will be including a last review date into the all list report. We will also be investigating some possibilities around identifying items on published lists that haven’t been reviewed as part of the reviews work we are doing

  18. Reporting from live data

    I doubt this will be possible given your current architecture but we would really like to be able to report on live data. All our other systems can handle reports running on live data and it is especially important in certain situations, e.g. after roll over or any other batch functions (when they become possible) so we immediately know what happened and can continue working - or request an undo if we spot that we've messed something up!

    (It would also be useful given that recent problems in transferring the data to the system that we report from haven't always…

  19. Allow searching and sorting across the whole report

    It would be much more efficient if we could search and sort across the whole report, not just the displayed screen

  20. Export whole report

    Currently, only the displayed screen is exported, not the whole report. It would be much easier and time efficient to export the whole report at once
