  1. Digitisation status as filter in Reviews

    Could you add a filter in Reviews for "item has a Digitisation"? We roll over our digitisations when the list is published and comes through for review. It would be handy if we could see which items have digitisations by a filter. It would also be useful if there was also an alert that the digitisation status had changed since the last review e.g. was now Expired. I would also like to see the TADC number in reviews which I can see is another idea in the forum (http://ideas.talis.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-reading-lists/suggestions/17410534-tadc-number-in-reviews)

  2. Include comments in Export Review CSV

    We will have a number of different workflows for ordering of books needed for reading lists. In the case of those people who review reading lists but do not place orders it would be useful if they could add a review comment about the number of copies to be ordered, budget etc. and then have this included when they export the review. The CSV file could then be sent to the staff who do the ordering.

  3. Make "View later edition" alert in Reviews screen dependent on edition statements not publication dates

    The "View later edition" alert in the Reviews screen is currently very unreliable. It appears to be triggered by publication dates rather than edition statements and so picks up paperback reprints, e-book releases, etc - none of which are "new editions" in the academic sense of the word. Nine times out of ten when we look at it we find there isn't in fact a new edition, which is leading staff to ignore it. Is there any way it could be refined so that it only actually picks up 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc edition statements?

  4. Reviews - time and date of outcomes to be visible on .csv report

    It would be helpful if the date and time of comments/amendments made via a review could also be exported to the .csv file, when you export the review. Can this be done at all ? The excel spreadsheet includes a column for review outcome, and these are visible, (which was activated as a result of a previous idea), but does not have the time the comment/outcome was made. Adding this feature would help with our workflows as we could see at a glance how work was progressing on a particular review.

  5. Icons for different types of alerts (items with changes) Reviews 2.0

    At present the exclamation mark alert in Reviews in 2.0 can mean a number of things (change of importance/notes/new edition/enrolments etc).

    We would much prefer to have symbols to differentiate between these types of alerts, when reviewing we need to be able to quickly drill down what changes have been made so are concentrating on items of priority. For example if a list has student numbers changed this could cause alerts for all items but it's not clear which of those have new edition flags unless you check each one which isn't an efficient use of time.

    I haven't found…

  6. Set review outcome (2.0) for multiple items

    We'd benefit from option of being able to select multiple resources in a review (e.g. check box by each item/line) and set the review outcome. For example if we have bulk checked a number of weblinks would like to select all in one go and set review outcome rather than click though each item and do this individually, would be a good time saver for us.

    It was also referred to in this idea dating back to 2012 when the system was much different. http://ideas.talis.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-reading-lists/suggestions/3291742-set-review-outcome-via-drop-down

  7. Update Lists using this resource when item linked via LCN

    When a title is linked to our catalogue during the Review stage, the Review doesn’t update the breakdown information of Lists using this resource, so we have to check the All items report to see if the item is on any other lists. This information should refresh automatically when the item has been linked.

  8. Add a request digitisation button in the review screen

    Could there be a 'request digitisation button' in the review process so that they could be requested as you go?

  9. Reviewing reading lists with draft changes

    When reviewing a published list with unpublished changes it would be helpful if there could be some indication of which items are unpublished additions. Otherwise you can have something on the review list which you can't find on the published version, which can get confusing for reviewers.
    The notification could say something similar to a list with unpublished changes e.g. 'this item is an unpublished change on a draft version of the list"

  10. Show review history in lists post rollover and in Reviews 2.0

    At present when lists are rolled over to a new time period or copied manually the 'review history' (in the list review drop down menu) does not rollover- it resets as a new list. Nor is this review history available to view in Reviews 2.0, only the previous review comments and/or alerts attached to bookmarks.

    The review history information (dates requested/completed/by whom) is very useful to view as part of the workflow and we would like to see the review history details rollover with lists year on year and also appear in Reviews 2.0 detail screen.

  11. reviews 2.0 overview summary line similar to TADC

    Would it be possible to have a line at the top of the reviews page with a summary similar to TADC of 'Requested' 'Started' 'Assigned to You' or to default the display to these statuses to help workflow?

  12. Change “Request Review” to “Request Library Review”

    Currently, many academics are confused by the “Request Review” button because the text that explains it (i.e. that a review is something the Library carries out, and that the Library needs to be asked to carry out a review whenever a list is amended) is not very prominent. Hence many academics never send their lists for review. It would help if the wording of the button itself was changed from "Request Review" to “Request Library Review”.

  13. Is it possible to delete the notes added to items in the review section

    We make extensive use of the note functionality in our processes - collections assistants append notes on decisions to inform librarians and overseas colleagues of purchasing decisions. Some items end up with dozens of notes and when we make a mistake we have to add another note to say ignore the above note. Can we delete them instead?

  14. TADC number in reviews

    Currently in reviews beta the status of any digitisation requests appears (live, referred, rejected etc.) but it would be useful if the TADC number could be displayed. It would be even better if this number could be linked to the TADC request page to enable quick access to the request info.

  15. Edit library and student notes within Reviews 2.0

    We'd like to resurrect this idea from 2014 but see it incorporated into Reviews 2.0 http://ideas.talis.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-reading-lists/suggestions/5335311-ability-to-edit-note-for-library-from-within-the#{toggle_previous_statuses}

    Our team would be keen to have ability to edit library and student notes within the Reviews 2.0 screen rather than having to revert to the original list which is time consuming.

    We use library notes in our acquisitions workflow as this information is populated in the all list items report and you can see actions taken for books not available in the catalogue (whereas review 2.0 comments aren't visible in this report). The ability to update and edit these notes within the reviews…

  16. DOIs in Reviews 2.0

    We've recently moved to Reviews 2.0, and a colleague spotted that DOIs in article bookmarks do not have hyperlinks in the new review screen (screenshot attached to illustrate). We thought this was a bit strange since elsewhere in Aspire Reading Lists DOIs are hyperlinks (such as clicking on bookmarks) and I believe DOIs were hyperlinks in the old Reviews 1.0 screen.

    When completing reviews, our staff check all links to electronic resources for functionality, so the inability to follow a DOI through to the article seems to defeat the point of the review. It would be lovely if this could…

  17. Add a message box on the Request Review screen

    I think it would be benficial to be able to add a note in a box on the request review page. At present you only had to stipulate student numbers.

    At my insitution only one person does the review, the Subject Librarian, and a number of lists are created by the admin team so messages in this box could include:

    "Only one item needs attention as not in stock" (useful on a longer list to speed things up)

    "Same list is also being used on three other modules" (could then duplicate etc)

    Or academics could add a note such as:

  18. Changing text for request review reminder when clicking Publish

    Where we have the option to ask list editors to request a review when they click publish, it would be useful to be able to control the message as we would want editors to request reviews if they have books they would like to order.

  20. Purchasing links from Reviews

    Would it be possible to utilise some of the TADC experience to make it possible to search for other/latest editions in both catalogue and suppliers sites not just the one listed.

    backlog  ·  Keji Adedeji responded

    The capabilities in TADC utilise checks against services such as xISBN to determine latest editions. We are investigating utilising the capabilities which drive the Quick Add and Dashboard 2.0 features (based on data served from NBD) in the reviews refresh we are investigating at the moment. Deeper integrations with suppliers are not currently in scope for the improvements we would like to make, but they are certainly areas of investigation for the future.
