How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Allow the default invite text and subject line to be set at tenancy level

At the moment the default email invite text and subject line are fixed - on completion of this story, they will be configurable at tenancy level.

We do intend to investigate the introduction of a dictionary tool which would enable configuration of local messages. This will be reviewed and prioritised following the completion of the Db re-architecture but is not a current priority

    I would certainly like to be able to configure the email invite text - or failing that could the system wide default be a bit better written? Lecturers don't really need congratulating, and the closing sentence is a syntactically grating:

    "Students will now be able to search for you and discover this, and any other lists that you are assigned as the owner of."

    Doesn't give the best impression of the library or Talis does it?

    Most definitely. It would also be better if we could customise the *full* text of the email - at the moment you can't customise the last two lines, they are not visible in the email invite screen but are added automatically by Aspire. The last one is the link, which is fair enough that it doesn't need customising but it would be useful to see it in order to format the email better. The line before that is ""Click on the link below to accept the invitation." We wanted to write our own message with further information (click the link and login as...) but it's awkward as we can't get rid of this line. If we can customise the text, let us customise all of it! And definitely at tenancy level too as it's hard and time-consuming training every member of staff to cut and paste our instructions into invites. Thanks.
