At the moment, if you "sign in" from a reading list item page to view a digitisation, you have to create a profile first.
Most users who sign in to view a digitisation are students, who have little to gain from creating a profile on Talis Aspire.
In our experience, any step which delays access to full text will deter users.
I would like the profile creation to be skipped or deferred for users who are "only" signing in to view a digitisation.22 votes
When a user loggs in for the First Time, we know who they are.
We can send their name and email address to prepopulate the Registration Fieds in the form.
Please can this functionality be developped for Shibboleth Users.17 votes
Talis Aspire Reading Lists now supports the automatic creation of user profiles when a user logs in for the first time, and the continued update of that profile if changes to names and email addresses are made in university identity management systems.

Expand list of academic disciplines and/or make the list customizable.
We have received a request to add Built Environment to the list as there is no equivalent discipline available4 votes
Talis Aspire Reading Lists (TARL) – Profile screen in Talis Aspire Reading Lists no longer asks for ‘Main Discipline’, this was based on feedback, that it didn’t cover enough variation or localisation on subjects. As it wasn’t mandatory, no meaningful trends could be gleamed from the data available so we decided this was no longer adding value and have therefore removed. We will keep an open watch on this to see the feedback that we get from this being removed.
It is possible for most Shibboleth IdPs to pass the data that is collected during account creation automatically.
It would be a nice addition if the user accounts were created automatically rather than the user filling out the new user registration form.3 votes
