How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Alert when date format is incorrect

Can the required date format/s be shown along side the date field when you Bookmark an item?

Also can you implement a warning message if the date is wrong so that there is an opportunity to edit the date before adding to the list?

At the moment- an article with a date in the format 2003-6-2 can be added to a list and you don't that there is an error until you check through the list and see the 'Unknown Error' message in place of any metadata.

We removed the date format requirement from Aspire as what users were actually trying to convey was a date or time period string – sometimes a date, sometimes an approximation (~1900) sometimes a range (1901-1910)

    Several points here. Firstly, showing some help text is something i'm just starting to think about across the app. No conclusions yet, but will keep you informed.
    Secondly, we think the problems with the unknown resource should be fixed by a related defect (XIP-1403) which is currently priortised.
