How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

"View and Export" in List View/Edit 2.0

In the first screenshot from Broadminster University, the Talis demo tenancy,, it looks as if you have the option to "View and Export" from the list when you are in edit mode. See my first attached screenshot.

But all that I can see when I am editing is a "View" drop down. If I want to see my export options,

I have to click View > As Student, and it's only then I am presented with options to export to PDF, CSV, etc. (see second attached screenshot)

This idea is to enable the "View & Export" button for all those with List Publisher and 'higher' roles in a tenancy. Primarily it is List Publishers who need to edit / share / export lists rather than students.

We have now had three instances of editors in our academic departments who wanted to export the list as a PDF and could not work out how to do this. The option to Export should be there as a default even if you are in Edit 2.0 mode.

We will be enabling this as part of the New List Edit so that you can perform the same View and Export options as you can without needing to switch to the student view.

    Would love this - I raised it with Talis back in spring when we first had the V2 list edit role enabled to test things out (along with the 'Add to Bookmarks' option on an existing bookmark only being possible when viewing as student - thankfully this has now been enabled in edit mode too!) and they mentioned that other institutions had raised this too and they would be reviewing it. It would be great if it was sorted out sooner rather than later now academics are editing their lists, so they get a good impression of Talis and stay engaged.
