How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

On 'recent changes' include who published the list

At present clicking on 'recent changes' shows the name of the list, the date, what was added. It would be very useful to see the email address of who actually published the list to keep track of activity.

    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    We’ve already started some improvements to expose more information in ‘Recent Changes’ e.g. item added/removed info. To address this idea, we can currently only expose the list publisher where that user has a public profile. We would like to change the meaning of private profiles, to mean private to the institution so that we can display this information to logged in users for all lists. Does anyone have any objection to this?

        Yes please do display a persons name and the dates of changes please. It would be very useful to see who is editing a list, how and when.

        This sounds like a really useful change. It would help us figure out who to contact and we've also had academics get in touch of us because they've seen someone made a change to their list and its freaked them out that they can't see who

        Hi Lydia,

        We won't be able to display the email address as this is a public page, and that could open up the individual to spam, but we could show the first and last name of the individual.

        Thanks,

        Chris
