Include top level hierarchy code or name in all list reports
We already get the hierarchy code that a list is attached to in the All List report. I'd also like the top level hierarchy name or code to appear - for us this is institute. This would allow me to easily extract high level engagement information to pass on to Heads of Institute. At the moment, it's a manual task to go through a report and attach Institute info to each module in order to sort and filter.
We are investigating the possibilities of this and how it fits into the current Continuous Improvement themes.
We too are often asked for rates of coverage of reading lists per school to show engagement, at the moment we group the module codes in the hierarchy field manually into schools. This is quite time consuming so having the parent node listed on the csv would make this task much easier and be a very useful addition to the report.

This would be great. It would save so much time to have a 'parent' column as well as the 'child' in the CSV file. I think all of our subject librarians ask me about this at least twice a year. Not exaggerating: they're genuinely perplexed why it doesn't do this. It would be so popular.
