    This is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.

    Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

    We would like to review the dashboard can be shared with academics where permissions and roles are not given to them.

    However, this is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.

    Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

    Stacey,
    Not sure if anyone has said this to you off-line but we have recently discovered that you can export the Dashboard to a PDF if you have installed the Firefox add-on "Print Pages to PDF".

    However, I thoroughly agree that the Dashboard should be much more accessible. Like Griffith, Monash has multiple campuses and subjects are taught across more than one campus.

    At Monash, we would like the Dashboard to be made available to anyone who looks at a reading list. I do not believe that there are any privacy related problems in exposing this data from a button on the reading list page.

    Secondly, I have just requested Talis to add the permission to view the Dashboard to the List Creator role, not just the List Publisher role in our tenancy as a result of just reading the Talis article on Knowledge Base, "What is a permission and what is a role?" (October 15, 2013). At the moment Library staff are the List Owners at Monash.

    I totally agree with Stacey.
    At Monash, we have a similar scenario to University of Queensland i.e. academic staff do not have List Creator or List Publisher roles.
    I have also been told that it would be useful for Faculty Administrative staff to have access to this data so that they can prepare statistical reports for their Faculty Board meetings.
    I endorse Stacey's suggestions to raise the restriction on access to the Dashboard, perhaps by a "read only" view, or to permit the export of the data to a PDF.
    A new role that can be given to such staff would be very useful.
    Regards, Ian

    This is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog. It will be merged with a similar existing idea.

    Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

    The existing reporting infrastructure cannot report on usage data as it is stored differently. We will be doing some investigation into how usage data can be exposed.

    We have been reviewing this idea following on from the list edit work that has been taking place and would like to now explore this piece further.

    This is an example of how an idea may be declined at a point in time but as we explore and develop new areas we do review all ideas past and present and consider them all.

    Although I think this is a good idea, our experience is that students like to read ahead and actually kick up if they cannot see their lists before the beginning of semester.

    Like Angie, I missed voting for this but would strongly support it's development.
    Is there a time frame for this. I have also received feedback from a lecturer at Monash that this would be very useful.
