  1. Report on number of lists linked to higher levels in hierarchy than node list is linked to

    We have a requirement to report on the number of lists linked to a faculty and number of lists linked to a department. Our hierarchy goes faculty>department>module. Lists are directly linked to modules. The Hoerarchy Snapshot Report allows us to report on number of lists attached to amodule but not number of lists attached to a higher level in the hierarchy.

    backlog  ·  Keji Adedeji responded

    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.

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

  2. Show lists linked to units within the hierarchy

    When viewing the hierarchy, it would be useful to quickly see which units have lists attached within a department. Would enable library staff to target units where there were no lists.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Simplify steps to add the Bookmark Button.

    When you click on the link to "Install Bookmark Button" it comes up with a pop-up that describes what it is. For some reason this confuses people. I would recommend that the pop-up goes directly to the second screen.

    In the second screen, some people just click on the "Add to My Bookmarks" button, which then takes them to the manual add a bookmark page (see attached file). It would be good if that wasn't possible and the text read "Drag me to your bookmarks bar."

    Also, I would omit the "Close" button beside "Next. "

  6. Exporting a List in Word or Rich Text Format

    Add Word or Rich Text format to the options to Export.

    Some of our lecturers like to hand our paper copies of the reading list to students and the current export is very bulky and quite difficult to format as a PDF and because of the extra images tends to actually be quite long.

    Ideally they would like a stripped down version that would just have the core details (i.e. the text without hyperlinks and images) presented as formatted text (ideally in a selected citation style).

  7. Ability to edit the wording on the display of the Time period message for upcoming time periods

    The time period displayed on the message for an upcoming troimester can be misleading as we open the lists up a couple of weeks before the trimester, but the message says the trimester starts on the date that we have opened it. this can be misleading for students. can we either edit that message or turn it off.

    eg Message is This list relates to the term Trimester Three 2019/20 which does not start until 28/10/2019

    But this is the date we open the lists, the actual trimester starts on 4/11/2019

    Confusing

  8. Review Screen: Pin Important Notes to the top of the screen OR free text field at the top

    [Screenshot attached of idea]
    In order to aid communication between reviewers and enhancing our ability to quickly following up where we left off, please can we have the option to pin an important review note to the top of the screen? (e.g. how much stock was ordered, or what eBook licence the eBook has)

    This would enhance our ability to see at a glance where we are with the item. We would still have the option of scrolling down to see the extended work log below.

    Failing that, a free text field where we can add important information at the…

  9. Assign items to a team with filtering capabilities

    We currently use Reviews to assign items to teams via outcomes. Our workflow starts with an acquisition team member ordering books and checking links to online resources. While reviewing, the team assigns work via outcomes to scanning and collections teams.

    However, as many universities who use Reviews, this issue has proved very difficult and undependable because outcomes can get overwritten by another member of staff. We would like to be able to assign one item to a team member and include a filter for that. The list item first can be assigned to a default team and in our case…

  10. Improve editing items as 'essential'

    Many of our academics create a section (or multiple sections, week by week) for Essential and Recommended readings. Having put all 'essential' items into the 'essential' section, they do not then mark each individual item as essential. This strikes them as extra work and unnecessary.

    We would like the system to allow for all items in an 'essential' section to be marked as essential, or some other way to batch update multiple items as essential. The current process takes 3 clicks for each item, so for a list of 100 items or more is a lot of additional effort.

  11. We need to be able to see a complete list of items removed from lists within a given period, with full details

    We can currently see changes made in the last few days, or search by list and then see changes, but the details are very sketchy. We need full detials of items that have been removed

  12. Show editor details in reviews screen

    In the reviews screen the editor of an item is not detailed. This makes it more time consuming to review an item, particularly if there are several different items on a list that have the same title but editors rather than authors.
    It would be very helpful if the records of items that have an editor display the same level of bibliographic data as those for items that have authors.

  13. LTI custom parameter for message when no list available.

    This year Griffith has moved from using the Talis building block in Blackboard to using the LTI. This is set up by default to use "best guess" to display a reading list for a course site using the custom parameters nodecoderegex and timeperiodregex. The Readings LTI link is present in the Blackboard course template, so is present for every course site that is created. Not all courses have reading lists; when this is the case, academics have to make this link not available to students or delete it. If this is not done and students click…

  14. Link to Library Catalogue in Reviews to open in new tab/window

    We would like for the link to our Library Catalogue from within the availability section of Talis Reviews (see image attached) to open in a new window or tab, similar to the links to suppliers' websites.

    This ability to open in a new tab/widow makes the links within Reviews consistent, instead of having to continually use the right-click button for the only link in Reviews that opens in the same window.

  15. Digitisation status as filter in Reviews

    Could you add a filter in Reviews for "item has a Digitisation"? We roll over our digitisations when the list is published and comes through for review. It would be handy if we could see which items have digitisations by a filter. It would also be useful if there was also an alert that the digitisation status had changed since the last review e.g. was now Expired. I would also like to see the TADC number in reviews which I can see is another idea in the forum (http://ideas.talis.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-reading-lists/suggestions/17410534-tadc-number-in-reviews)

    We are working on bookmarking functionality alongside our List Edit improvements, this will reduce the reliance on the bookmarklet feature and enable more resources to be accessible in the List Edit context. When this feature is released, we will revisit this idea to understand if it still has relevance.

  17. Removal of duplicates from bibliography

    When you view list as bibliography it duplicates references where there are multiple bookmarks for the same item. It would be good to remove these duplicates so that if necessary academics can quickly produce a bibliography if necessary without having to edit it.

  18. Creating a bookmark and adding item (direct) to a list

    When creating a bookmark and adding item (direct) to a list, enabling either ‘search’ function for the list or list them alphabetically or by most recently used. If you have many lists it can be hard and time-consuming to locate your list.

  19. TADC number in reviews

    Currently in reviews beta the status of any digitisation requests appears (live, referred, rejected etc.) but it would be useful if the TADC number could be displayed. It would be even better if this number could be linked to the TADC request page to enable quick access to the request info.

  20. add individual items through LTI (Blackboard)
