Merge/link duplicate bookmarks in the system

Often the same resources are bookmarked by many different users, but with the metadata details varying slightly for each. It can be time-consuming to correct each occurence/variation. It would be very helpful if duplicate bookmarks could be merged...

Remove deleted lists from 'My invites' list in 'My profile'

Currently, deleted lists continue to appear on 'My invites' list in 'My profile'. This is most irksome given the list link takes you to an error screen. This may or may not be a one-off error only I am experiencing, nevertheless, it would be usefu...

★ 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

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...

Currently the DOI lookup in manual bookmark creation requires the user to enter a DOI as follows: 10.47366/sabia.v5n1a3. However, users often see the DOI displayed as https://doi.org/10.47366/sabia.v5n1a3 and when they use this for the DOI lookup,...
