Allow Systems Administrators to be able to un-archive single lists

We bulk archive lists every year, we do so based on the previous academic year at the start of the current academic year to avoid confusion for students and academics. However, occasionally academics come back and want that list to be active again...

Allow recently deleted lists to be retrieved in order to prevent permanent accidental deletions.

When culling reading lists, especially when deciding between two that have been created with the same/similar names, it is easy to delete the wrong one. It would be helpful to have a retrieval feature in which recently deleted lists could be resto...

Short URLs for sharing reading lists

At the moment Talis RL links are very long strings of alphanumerics. A shortened version to share more elegantly would look very nice. E.g. rl.talis.com/Institution/PSYC101 rather than https://rl.talis.com/3/institution/lists/AB01234C-0A2B-3C4D-DD...

'View as a list owner' functionality

Often, when we are introducing new academic staff to Talis Aspire or running refresher sessions for list owners just before the start of a semester, our colleagues point out that the menus they see in the system are not the same as those on screen...

Add a 'Report broken link/Status' button beside resources that shows when a link has been reported and fixed

While there is a 'Report broken link' button located in the action menu, it would be more obvious and useful if there was a 'report/status' button to the right of the 'three dots menu button'. This button should turn red when any student has repor...

Add 'Selected Pages' as a 'Resource Type' in reading list and change Page fields for 'From-To' to just 'Pages'ages

Currently the 'Resource type' in the metadata of a resource on a reading list has chapter, article, document etc. There are many times when a list owner requests selected random pages that are not a whole chapter and it is difficult to show that. ...

Enable the metadata of reading list items and digitisations to be synced/linked

Currently, if the metadata in a reading list item is updated, the metadata in the linked ditigisation is not updated too. It would be helpful if the metadata for each were synced, so we do not have to update both separately!

Enable lecturers to add a 'Timer/Clock/Stopwatch' label of how long students should spent engaging with each resource

Enable students to mark a resource as useful (👍) or not useful (👎)

Currently students can only set reading intentions or write private notes on reading lists. It would be great if a student could also mark a resource with a thumbs up (👍) or thumbs down (👎) based on how useful they perceived it to be. This could b...
