How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Delete a list

To assist final data conversion it would be good to be able to delete an Aspire list in full. It would certainly help us now- but might also be useful in managing the tenancy longer-term as academics leave or courses are discontinued- being able to kill unwanted lists completly may be in order????

Another benefit is that it allows us to get rid of test lists that we are not 'proud' of. With Aspire exposed to search engines it kind of makes sense to allow 'play' and then taking back to base level to keep standards high????

We have released “Archive List” to live, which is in effect the deletion of a list, as archived lists are not available from the hierarchy or search

    Essential - many users first reaction will be to create a nonsense test list. It is only afterwards that they will find they can't delete it

    Hi Annette,

    Once we move items in Aspire Ideas to planned, the idea is that we aim to complete them within 3 months. So on that basis, it is likely that we can complete this idea some time before July.

    As we are approaching the end of an academic year and, in Reading List terms, beginning to plan for 2010/11, the facility to either archive or delete a list (preferably both ) in My Lists is becoming more of a necessity. Status is already 'planned' - is it likely that this will be in place by June / July when the new academic year's lists would be created?

    I would definitely agree with this. I know of several lists we migrated over from the old system that relate to courses no longer being run as well as those set up by lecturers who have since left.

    Hi I have raised XIP-1350 for this.

    From Feedback from a new academic ...
    Love the system - really simple once it's set up. I would like to be able to delete a list I have created though should it no longer be needed.
