  1. Profiles for Permissions

    Now that we are allocating different permissions to both library staff and academics- it would be useful to be able to see user profiles with their various permission levels. Are there any planned developments around this issue?

    This profile element of this feature has now been released – soon, we’ll add the user’s permissions to this profile (viewable only by role admins).

  2. My Bookmarks display in Edit List view

    When recently creating a resource list for a Spanish course- several items bookmarked had the same title- but one was a book and the other an audio-visual item- but look identical in My Bookmarks on the right hand side of the Edit List view as only the information from the title field is visible. Can you show the material type in My Bookmarks in this view?

    The bookmarks displayed in List Edit mode now have the resource type displayed with them.

  3. Manual Entries

    I can see manual entries being a problem with academics as there isn't a means of editing the details once you have added it to My Bookmarks. If you find you have made even one typo- once you have added to My Bookmarks or direct to a list- you would have to create a new manual entry from scratch in order to correct the error.

    Would it be possible to build in a function to edit Manual entries in My Bookmarks?

    If you click on “More details” on a manual entry, the option is now available to edit.

  4. User hits dead end when browsing the hierarchy and discovers a course with no linked lists

    If a user is browsing the hierarchy and there is no list linked to a course- when they click on the course title- the page is blank below the course title. Can there be a standard message displayed along the lines of - 'there are currently no lists linked to this course'.

    This has now been completed and released to live

  5. Making setting the importance of an item for Acquisition more obvious

    Marking the importance of items on a list is essential information in order for the Library to ensure additional copies and new titles are ordered when resourcing a course. I would like to see the 'importance' drop-down list and 'note to library field' having a higher visibility . I think this needs to be done at the point of adding an item to a list - - currently a tutor would need to go back into each item they have added to a list to mark the 'importance'. When you Create and Add an Item directly to a list- a…

  6. Linking and 'new window' option

    I'm aware that (a) web accessibility compliance restricts certain linking behaviours and that (b) Talis are looking at the options to iframe more linked content *within* Aspire- but I would still like to explore the idea of an additional optional 'Open in a new window' button for the key external outbounds links in Aspire. As an end user I would like to have the option to keep my List in view in one window while navigating my way through outcomes (such as a Library Catalogue- online vendor- e-Content provider) in another. I find the experience of 'losing' my List as…
