  1. Ability to manage user permissions

    After some discussion we feel it would be useful to have the ability to control user permissions. There may be instances where we would like to give library staff the ability to publish lists but would then like to remove that permission or change their role.

    This is a valuable idea and user management is an area I would like us to investigate further in the future.

    However its 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.

  2. Improve Dashboard visibility and exportability

    The Dashboard contains analytics on usage, editions, metadata, views, etc, which would be very useful if it was more widely available. The current restriction to List Owners or List Publishers prevents other relevant and appropriate interested parties for accessing and assessing this data.

    In a Library managed model distributed across several campuses, we are not yet at the stage of giving teaching staff List Publisher roles and incorporating Reviews into our workflows. We also rarely have a single teaching member of staff, which makes List Owner not a useful feature either, being restricted to one person who has also created…

    We would like to review the dashboard can be shared with academics where permissions and roles are not given to them.

    However, 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.

  3. Editing text in invitations

    When sending invitations to academic staff, we would like the standard text in the message template to be customisable to reflect our tenancy's configuration; without having to modify it each time we send it. For example, we have just asked Talis to add 'View Dashboard' to the role of List Creator. Currently, that does not appear in the list of permissions in the standard message template for that role.

    This is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog. It will be merged with a similar existing idea.

    Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.

  4. Gravatar + user profiles

    Prompted by comments from academics creating a profile.

    At the moment it is compulsory to use Gravatar in order to add a profile picture. Is it possible to have an alternative option to just upload an image file directly? An image is a friendly personalisation of lists, but the extra steps of joining Gravatar are putting people off!

    Low priority as it’s a cosmetic function, and the user can complete the task

  5. Resend invites - remove option when invitation is accepted

    If an invite has been accepted, say, 5 days ago, why do we still see the option to 'Resend invite'? Surely, there would be no need to resend an invite if one had already been accepted. Could the button be removed from invites that have been accepted, please?
