This would be useful for the University of East Anglia. We've had a few instances of academics raising concerns over the placement of the Google Books Preview, and that it might cause confusion between the Google Preview and our full text e-resources. Being able to disable it at a list or item level would be very useful to alleviate these concerns.
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.
This would be useful to us, as it has been directly requested by a number of members of academic staff. A "phased rollout" approach to reading lists seems to be favoured by some schools.

This would also be very useful to us at UEA. We have a number of arts and media modules that would very much value being able to improve the visual presentation of reading lists.
This change would be very useful for UEA as well. We've frequently encountered academic staff who are unaware that the LTI box is an editable search box, which has often left them frustrated when it doesn't immediately match to the correct list. Anything that improves the visibility of the box as a search function would be a huge improvement for us!

We have a sizeable number of lists that require notes on the whole list rather than individual items. Being able to include these notes within the TARL system rather than relying on external emails would make it much easier to keep track of these issues.

This would be very useful to us, not least around TADC rollover. We've ended up with around 300 unlinked digitisations from this year's rollover.

We'd be very keen to see this functionality in Talis. Currently our students tend to contact academic staff directly rather than the library to report broken links, which adds to the academic workload and can result in problems going unresolved for an extended period of time.
A "Report broken link" button would be a quick and simple way of our users flagging an issue directly with those best placed to resolve it.
We think this is a valuable idea and something we will wish to investigate in the future, however its not in our near term development focu so its on our longer term backlog
We'd be very keen to see this functionality in Talis - while we've not had any issues as yet, several of our academics have expressed concern that they can't track who might make changes to their reading lists.

This functionality would be extremely useful to us, and help drive up adoption as we find that needing to create a user profile can turn people away from the system before they get started.
As has been flagged by other users below we'd very much prefer to default to our institutional email addresses rather than giving users the option of using a personal email.
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
This feature would be very useful to us. We've had several issues with users incorrectly identifying emails from Talis as spam, and being able to customise the wording would help with that a great deal.
We'd also be keen to change the reply email address to something specific to our institution, rather than firstname.lastname@example.org.
