All Lists Items report - additional column: Hierarchy column
I would like to request that the HIerarchy column , which is in the All Lists report be added to the All List Items report.
I was asked to supply information on the publishing dates of books in reading lists by college. To do this I had to run a report of books in all published lists. This amounted to over 59,000. I then had to manually find which college a list was in and sort it. This was a massively time consuming job. If the HIerarchy column was available I would have been able to sort and find the information much quicker.
This would also but useful to identify which reading lists are using chapters, webpoages, databases etc
We are looking at reporting and will consider this idea alongside that exploration.

Having the hierarchy column in the All list items report would save our staff a huge amount of time. Currently various spreadsheets have to merged. Used to use Google Fusions but this is no longer available. Need to supply the item info and which module it is attached to a third party for book ordering purposes.
We plan on using this spreadsheet when submitting newly added items to a vendor in order for them to know which fund code to populate.
For the same reason, student numbers would be extremely beneficial in regards to our student numbers ordering ratio policy. Otherwise, as addressed below, it's a manual and labour intensive job for us.

This columns would support our purchasing procedure for which we use the All List Items report; manually added module codes in the list titles are sometimes incorrect and slow the workflow,
Include the hierarchy code in the All List Items report. I would like to see which modules have not been updated recently. However, the update date in the All List report is changed when rollover happens but the date an item was added does not change in the All List Items report therefore is an accurate reflection of a lists update date. Including the hierarchy in the all list items report allows it to be sorted by modules more easily and from there to identify the department.
