How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Ability to remove users

Our user report is becoming unwieldy and full of staff who have left. We would like the ability to delete them. This would make user management/review a lot more efficient and accurate.

(Yes, if they've left, their account should have been deactivated so they can't access, but this is equally something that should not be relied upon and we should be deleting them from all our systems too.)

    Could this idea be updated to cover the bulk removal of profiles, e.g. if the user has't logged in for 12 months / similar time period , or a combination of not logged in for 12 months & doesn't have an academic/ lecturer role - i.e. should be a student who has graduated ? I don't think all of our students have registered with an @dundee.ac.uk address, so we can't rely on a purge at our end deactivating the email address.
    Thank you,
    Kirsty

    We would like the ability to delete a profile when a member of staff leaves the institution. This will save us having a list of profiles of staff that no longer work at our institution.
    Please add your votes to this request.
    Thank you in advance.

    I was very surprised that this functionality is not available.

    I consider it a necessary requirement and just one of the permissions that enable basic house keeping for our tenancy.

    I fully support this proposal.

    We are interested in having to ability to delete unwanted user profiles using various criteria such as date or by matching against an identifier -- for example, email address. Ideally we would want to upload a file of email addresses matching profiles for deletion..

    I'd like this feature to be enabled, when we download lists of users to send emails to, we end up getting lots of 'undeliverable' replies. We can keep track of these but it is time-consuming to cross-reference old and new spreadsheets. It would be useful to be able to delete accounts once we know the user has left the University.

    I wanted to record a video of how to set-up a profile so that we can teach academics how to use Dashboard. Unfortunately my dummy account now has a profile but the recording didn't work - it would be good if I could delete this user and start again

    I would like to request for the same feature as suggested by Claire from University of Brighton in order to manage & organize the Roles & Invites page effectively.

    Alongside this, I'd like a way to remove invites that have not been responded to. Colleagues sometimes duplicate invites (academic staff member can't find the email they were sent so library staff member creates a new one to facilitate getting them started on a workshop would be one scenario here), but also occasionally mis-type the email address, so they've invited someone who doesn't exist and will never reply. We need to delete these, either 'all unanswered invites older than x', or allow inviters to remove them themselves
