★ Change the 'Copy list' function to 'Backup list' and make list-creation/coping Admin-Only

Academics keep using the 'copy list' function to make unnecesary duplicate lists, or 'create new lists' -- abdanoning their existing list and starting new ones. Sometimes they do this because it reassures them that they have made a 'back-up' befor...

Change the colour of the 'Unpublished changes!' warning bar

Unfortunately our users often miss the 'Unpublished changes!' bar on lists as the yellow colour makes it look like a 'status update' (like the blue bar 'A review has been request') rather than an important alert that they need to do something. Ple...

★ Change the 'Add field' and 'Lookup' drop downs to BUTTONS ONLY, and the 'Has Part' and 'Part Of' options to TICK BOXES in the edit metadata window

Unfortunately, our users find it confusing to use the Add field drop down in the metadata window. Rather than choosing an option in the drop down, then clicking the Add button, they find it more instinctive to click the Add button first. Frustrati...

Change the wording of 'linked to Code' to 'tagged as Code' or '#Code'

Currently when a list is associated with a Hierarchy Code, it says 'linked to Hierarchy-Code'. Unfortunately, our users misunderstand this to mean the list has been successfully linked to their Canvas course. To avoid this confusion, please change...

Ensure the Publisher of a Journal is automatically added when DOI lookup is used

Currently when DOI lookup is used the publisher information is not automatically added to the Journal information tab in the metadata. The publisher information is important for Copyright reporting, and it can be laborious to manually add this fie...

Enable multiple timestamped 'Notes' to be added to resources including 'Notes FROM Library'

Currently we ask users to manually add the date and their name when they create a 'Note for Library' so librarians know when their note was written and by who. Unfortunately, our users often forget, and it can be difficult to distinguish new notes...

Enable formatting options in 'Note for student'

Our users prefer using 'Notes for Students' over Paragraphs, as it is more obvious to students what resource they relate to, and cannot be accidentally separated. Unfortunately, unlike paragraphs, a 'Note for student' cannot Bold, Underline, Itali...

Add the field 'Article number' to the metadata

Many journal articles are now published with an Article number instead of page numbers. Please add this option to the available metadata fields so accurate citations can be created.
