Report on deleted lists using Advanced MIS

Advanced MIS is supposed to enable us to report on anything and everything to do with Talis Aspire: items, lists, hierarchy, rollovers, and users, plus staff and end user interactions with the whole system. It seems a bit odd then that we're unabl...

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...

When bookmarking books to include ISBNs with 020 |z's in RDA records as well as 020 |a's

A lot of the large record downloads from suppliers and other sources set ISBNs for e-books with |z (used for faulty ISBNs) at the front, not |a's. This is because the ISBNs are not in the actual e-book text (an absurd and pointless cataloguing pra...

Ability to set an institutional level retention period for storage of bookmarks by list editors and creators

We've had a number of problems related to bookmarks over the years, where our list creators and editor have used older bookmarks without checking whether the links work. This is particularly a problem when switching suppliers, such as when Dawsone...

Ability to collapse sections on a list
