    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.

  2. Library Review report - review outcomes

    • Review decisions - for a given date range, an all-List Item report on Review Outcomes (e.g. 'How many "On order" items were created from Review in August 2010')

  3. Library Review report - submission to completion

    Submission to Completion reporting - for a given date range, report on how long library reviews took from the time of academic request of a review of a List to library completion. (Currently the All Reviews screen itself does not timestamp the Completed action; but libraries are likely to want to report on their processing times for submitting lists [perhaps against SLAs, KPIs and the like].)

    The reviews refresh will be ensuring we capture this data but in the first instance will not be providing this report. We will return to this once the new reviews is up and running 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.

  4. network file bookmark

    not sure if I missed something, one of our academics asked if it were possible to bookmark a network file
    file://server/share/path/reallyUseful.doc

    naturally it would only be visible inside the university, so a restricted access label would be required

    I have suggested locating it on a web page or eLearning site, but he would like the option anyway

    We will not be focusing on this now due to low votes in the 2012 ideas survey However, we think this is a valuable idea and is something we will wish to investigate in the future, so its on our longer term backlog

  5. 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.

  6. Allow users to request roles rather than waiting to be invited

    At the moment an academic has to wait to receive an invite to edit a list from a system administrator. Academics who are proactive and have discovered the system have no way of gaining an entry point.

    On completion of this story they would proactively be able to request various roles. The request is added to a queue and at some future point an administrator can approve or deny the request.

  7. Allow invites scoped to multiple points in the hierarchy to be sent in one batch

    At the moment an administrator must send a separate invite email for each list or module they would like a user to have permissions over.

    On completion of this story administrators would be able to send one invite allowing users the same permission over multiple lists or modules.

    User management is not 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.

  8. Allow invites to be created without sending emails

    At the moment an email invite is sent for every invite issued - even if the user is already has an active login to Aspire. This can result in multiple emails sitting in a user's inbox.

    Rather than emailing invites to users, administrators can elect to suppress the email invites.

    In this circumstance, users are asked to accept invites the next time they log into the system.

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

  9. Improved handling of expired sessions

    When a user has left their Aspire view inactive for a period of time sufficient for their session to expire, clicking on a permissions based action (like an Edit action) produces the plain text error

    You do not have permission to edit this resource (403)

    Could such a expired session request be routed instread back to the Tenancy appropriate login? screen?

  10. In-line Box of Broadcast (BoB) materials

    BoB is a system that is going to be very important in the HE sector in the near future - either from the National BoB or locally implemented. Cambridge Imaging and BUFVC are the external partners to talk to on this.

  11. Organising 'My Bookmarks'

    It is becoming really important for our academics to be able to organise their bookmarks. We know tags are the currnet thinking with filters- but some academics have a mental block against this. They are so used to having very structured resources/citations and without the ability to oraganise and sort (things like author- title- date- type- notes/modules ....) the resources within their 'library'

    We are currently refactoring the My Bookmarks screen to work in a way that allows users to sort and filter more effectively. Although this won’t include tagging or sorting yet, it does provide the framework for further options in this area.

  12. Student reporting lack of copies

    Students should be able to report the inability of accessing materials. This should be passed to central e-mail account (to library not academic)

    Improving the feedback mechanism is not in our near term development focus, so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.
