Option of Student Numbers defaulting to hierarchy not list
We have student numbers for our modules stored in our student administration system. We want to be able to upload this information through the hierarchy into Aspire, and this be the definitive student number for the lists. Academics editing the list however, are able to add their own numbers, and this is the number which is shown in Reviews 2.0 i.e. list numbers have precedence over hierarchy upload numbers. We would like to be able to choose which number is set as the default – hierarchy or list number
We are looking to explore this further and make changes to the way the hierarchy is used within Talis Aspire.

If we could trust the student numbers in Reviews 2.0 (i.e. remove the human element!), it would streamline our purchasing workflows immeasurably. Implementing this option would help us achieve that.

We would like to begin uploading student numbers from our admin system to use in Reviews in preference to any added manually by list editors / publishers. We currently only use Reviews for digitisation. We would need consistent student numbers at all times of the year if we were to begin using Reviews for purchasing (we buy multiple copies of Essential books according to a student number ratios).

We also have student numbers for our modules which we get from our student registry. We upload the through the heirachy to Talis lists - however we want this number to be the number that gets pulled through to the review section - we have centralised reading list purchasing which is formula / ratio driven. the numbers we upload are definitive numbers - and would like this reflected in precedence and displayed as the default if available.
