    The My Lists table can now be sorted by clicking on the column headings.

  2. Moving resources from list to bookmarks

    From an academic

    (working on transferred lists- so not bookmarked via Aspire bookmarklet tool)

    it would be useful sometimes to be able to move items from the reading llist back to the bookmark list - curently existing lists need completing again ...

    Users can now add any item already on a list to their bookmarks – on the item detail page, click Copy to My Bookmarks

  3. Inform bookstore of changes to all lists

    Our campus bookshop would like to be notified everytime a list is modified. Ideally they would like to be emailed. (Apologies for posting this in the wrong place the last time- but it was my first post!)

    The bookstore can subscribe to the “Changes to all lists” RSS feed from the home page of every Aspire tenancy.

  4. Export list as printable document (e.g. txt, rtf, doc, pdf)

    From an academic ...

    At the risk of becoming unpopular...I would like to be able to use the online reading list to populate a module handbook - but this new version does not have an easily copyable format.

  5. Bookmark tool for Safari

    We are now starting to get uptake from some of our Arts and Technology types and their prefered browser is Safari; getting a bookmarlet tool for that would be helpful - or is there a work-around?

  6. Removing lists from 'my lists'

    Academic staff don't always teach the same courses year on year so they would need to be able to remove from their 'my lists' area- the ones for which they are no longer responsible.

    This has been completed and delivered to product.

  7. Alert when date format is incorrect

    Can the required date format/s be shown along side the date field when you Bookmark an item?

    Also can you implement a warning message if the date is wrong so that there is an opportunity to edit the date before adding to the list?

    At the moment- an article with a date in the format 2003-6-2 can be added to a list and you don't that there is an error until you check through the list and see the 'Unknown Error' message in place of any metadata.

    We removed the date format requirement from Aspire as what users were actually trying to convey was a date or time period string – sometimes a date, sometimes an approximation (~1900) sometimes a range (1901-1910)

  8. New Talis Forum discussion group for Aspire

    As new universities are now coming on board with Aspire- could you set up a new Talis Forum discussion group for libraries to discuss day-to-day experiences of using Aspire?

    I think this would be useful as we are all likely to be at different stages of implementation and we could learn from each other's experiences. The Idea Scale is more for new ideas and suggestions- the Aspire Blog serves the purpose of keeping up-to-date with new releases - so it would be useful to have more of a discussion forum that Aspire customers could use.

    The JISC mailing list LIS-TALIS-ASPIRE is currently being used for this purpose.

  9. 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).

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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'.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…
