  1. Would it be possible to add in a field so that we can include the details of translators please?

    I think that having a translator option is really important: students otherwise risk referencing their sources incompletely, and the role of the translator is severely diminished if their details are not included. I'd be so grateful if this could be considered.

  2. Give Library staff the ability to view Aspire as another role would see it

    Moodle has a very useful feature whereby staff roles have the option to view Moodle pages as another role would see them (eg Student). While Aspire reading lists have Student View, it would be really helpful if those with the most-permissions roles (eg Library staff) could choose to view as if they only had the permissions of a lesser role (eg List Publisher).

    We often find when attempting to help academic staff with Aspire that there is confusion about what those staff can or can't see on their screen, as Library staff with the Acquisitions role have more permissions and…

  3. Alert list owners/publishers when library adds new item to their list via automatic email

    When academics order new titles for their resource list, we put an internal note to that effect in our order records and acquisitions add that title to the relevant Talis list once the books have arrived. Please can this action by the library trigger an automatic email to the list owner and list publishers to say that new items have been added to their list by the library and that they should add the necessary details to the new entry as needed? This would save so much time and we wouldn't need to send a separate email to those academics…

  4. Add bulk action tools into Aspire itself

    The bulk action tools produced by Joe Munzer at York St John University under the aegis of Talis Developer Network have been absolutely invaluable during the last year - thanks Joe! However, my colleagues and I have had some difficulties getting the tool set up on our work computers because they are Managed Desktop machines and not really intended to run applications like Docker and XAMPP, which are needed to use Joe's bulk tools. Ideally, we would like to see the functionality of bulk tools could be incorporated into Aspire 'Admin' menu or even added as a separate 'Actions' menu…

  5. Ability to set priority level for reviews

    We would like to be able to set a priority level for lists sent for review and then be able to filter/sort the reviews in priority order. Ideally the priority levels could be configurable (e.g. High, Medium, Low or Priority 1, Priority 2) for each institution, similar to review stages.

    Aspire reviews are currently based on a steady stream of reading lists, dealt with in order of the date/time requested, with no other sort options. In practice when there is high demand before the start of semesters, it is important that reviews can be prioritised according to other criteria (e.g.…

  6. Make sections background more colourful (perhaps the same blue as in the classic edit or something to make them stand out more. )

    Since the new list edit it seems harder to spot the sections because the background colour used is not so prominent and it doesn't make it easy to spot sections or to spot where a section ends especially when dragging items to the bottom of a long section. It would be great if the background colour was a little more obvious either more saturated (obviously taking into account accessibility) or a perhaps a different colour to the rest of the list. Thank you.

    Thank you for all the feedback relating to the sections and the difficulties around defining them. We will be making some changes to these to make them more distinct. We will update as these become available.

  7. Not having the chapter title overwritten when performing a LCN/ISBN lookup

    Currently, when updating a chapter bookmark by performing a LCN or ISBN lookup, the chapter title is lost and the book title appears in the chapter title field.

    Surely somebody has raised this issue before?

    Thank you.

  8. New metadata field for online article number to ‘Article’ bookmarks

    Some articles are now only published online, and will have an article number, and in some cases have no pagination information.
    There are times during the bookmarking process in which this article number will be automatically pulled into the start page field in the article bookmark metadata. There is the potential for confusion about what this data means, or if the data should be retained, removed, or where it is missing, added to the pagination field.
    By adding a field for article number, it provides a field to accurately capture this information.

  9. Report broken link - More visibility for user to submit their details

    "Report Broken link", we had a student mention they've reported a few and never heard back. During the meeting I went in myself to show them and completely missed it myself. Looking back now I can see the 'Request a response and add more details' in black text above the buttons. It's quite camoflagued there as the eyes focus on the buttons.

    We're wondering if Talis would consider:
    (A) Adding a third button - cancel, report anonomously, report with your email address (wording not too worried about)
    OR
    (B) Making the report button capture email details by default.

    I think…

  10. Retention of the 'cut' feature in the action menu after searching

    When adding structure to sometimes lengthy lists migrated from our previous system, tutors use the search function to find the item they wish to move to one of their sections. However, the 'cut' feature is then absent from the action menu meaning they cannot 'move' the item to the right place in the list; only 'copy' it via 'My Bookmarks'. This either means the original item is still floating in the unstructured portion of the list and has to be found again to be deleted, or the tutor has to remember to open the action menu a second time with…

  13. Adding an item whilst in search filter

    We sometimes need to add a new edition, or e-book to a list that already contains an item. We've discovered that when you search to find the existing item in the list, you can't then add your new bookmarked item and it's quite frustrating. So, we'd like to be able to add items when in the search filter for a list.

  14. Search and punctuation

    In the Search box if the user inputs a title with punctuation, e.g. a comma or colon, but it isn't exactly the same as the bookmark's punctuation it is not found. This has come up where a comma was not included in the right spot and also sometimes there is or isn't a space before the : separating the sub-title. It would be good if the search was a little fuzzier to pick up these common typing mistakes.

  15. can you stop list holders from requesting a digitisation from an e-resource?

    Is it possible to hide the 'request digitisation' link from a resource link entry that is clearly for an e-resource? This can be problematic especially when we don't hold the item in print in our library. Also, as we have the e-resource, surely there's no need for anyone to request a digitisation of it?

  16. Filter Management Information Dashboards by academic year/time period

    We would like to propose that a filter is added to the MIS dashboards to allow running reports for a single academic year or time period. Currently filtering by academic year is only available on the "Edit Activity" dashboard.

    We had high hopes for the new MIS dashboards, which offer graphical, easy to use reports. However, as things stand, we are unable to use them because many of the dashboards report on all unarchived lists within the system, rather than allowing filtering to the current academic year lists. As it is our current policy to retain the last 4 years…

  17. Integrate Reviews within the Talis list interface visible to users

    By making everything editable from the user interface but with extra options for reviews, you would address the problem with to-ing and fro-ing between the two interfaces and having to check links that don't work in reviews but do work from the user interface, because the link resolver doesn't work and we would also see the list in the order in which it appears so editing it would be much easier and straightforward.

  18. Distinguish between print and online books in the All List Items report

    I would like to be able to run a report in All List Items of online books only. We have subscribed access to ebook collections where the content is changed by the vendor regularly, sometimes hundreds of titles are removed at once. I need to know if any of those titles are on reading lists as ebooks. Currently I can only refine the All Lists Item reports to books, but the print books are not relevant. The functionality to select 'online resource' as an option would solve the problem and save hours of checking.

  19. Copy sections

    We would like the ability to copy sections from one reading list to another.

    Davis Renfree said there have been similar requests in the past, however, they date from a while back when everyone was using Classic Edit, so it would be useful to raise a new idea. This would also help Talis gauge support for the idea as they continue to develop New List Edit further.

  20. Review list titles to be arranged in the same order as on the list including the list sections if there

    It would be great if, when reviewing list titles for each Talis list, we could see the review list titles in the same order as they appear on the list including the list sections if there.
