How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

All items report - additional values

One of the most obvious uses for the All Items report in the Reports section is to profile resources in a Tenancy by Type. Can the report be extended to include - Type (to enable a report on the spread of Types) and by a value which would distinguish electronic from non-electronic resource (such as the inclusion of a DOI or Web address), so that the split between electronic and non-electronic items can easily be calculated.

    Just wanted to add my voice to this one as an urgent requirement for us - particularly important to include export of the web address - so would be great to know when this is likely to become available.
    It's important for us as we want to be able to use the export of the All List Items report to run comparisons against our LMS data, in order to e.g. automate order requirements. Being able to distinguish where an ebook is being used, or, crucially, where it's being linked to in the web address field of the print edition, is essential.

    Also, links may change over time. We are migrating to Open Athens LA, so all of our MyiLibrary & DawsonEra links will need to be updated at some point. We need a way of identifying which items on which reading lists are from these platforms, so that we can edit the links. The only way I can see of doing this is to be able to export a list of items & attributes including the web address.
