compulsary heirarchy code/customisable text
When creating a new list, it would be helpful if the hierarchy code select was mandatory. Academics often create lists in addition to the lists we have rolled over for them, and don't attach these lists to hierarchy codes. This creates issues with linking to the learning management system, with future rolling over of lists, and when they submit digitisation requests. They will add a course codes when submitting their digitisation request that doesn't necessarily match the format of our hierarchy codes i.e. LIBTEST 101 vs LIBTEST101. This can result in duplicate digitisations and inaccurate reporting. This might be mitigated if the hierarchy code was a compulsory field.
I believe that, in our case, the issue is that academics don't actually know what a "hierarchy" is, so another solution might be for the phrasing to be customisable. Academics here would be more likely to add a "course code" to their list because they recognise the term.
