Make the Bulk Item Editor customizable for all Ares template fields
I come across the issue of cloning items into a new semester but needing to change the dates of each item individually. It would save a heap ton of time to be able to bulk edit the items in the Instructor Tag field with the new dates. Unfortunately this is not a field that is included in the bulk item editor. Perhaps it can be added in the customization manager or included in the next update.3 votes
Support LTI Names and Role Provisioning Services to bring full class lists
Once Ares uses the LTI Names and Role Provisioning Services and asks the LMS for the entire class list on first contact complete enrollment records will be available with only the LTI integration and remove the dependency on loading records.

Ability to give subsets of students in the same course section access to different items in the reserves list.
We have courses where students are assigned different readings (such as case studies) to work on in groups. We don't want to have to license a case study for all the students if only a subsection of the class needs to read a particular case.1 vote0 comments · Other · Admin →
Browser bookmarklet for adding web content to reserve lists.
I have seen this functionality being used with other resource list creation software. Could something similar be developed to work with Ares?1 vote
Include Tracking and History Tables in Export of multiple items
I require the DateTime created and DateTime available for a set of a bunch of items. This is not a field in the standard reporting filter. and not exported data when exporting the filtered items.
Also frustrating to not be able to export all data within a item as a general solutions for any other fields other people might want that exist in the items but not in the parseable report fields.

Add file size to the grid
It would be nice to have "file size" added to grids. Sometimes professors or staff provide PDFs that are extremely large. It would be nice to sort for these to be able to replace them with reduced size PDFs. This is helpful for students (to not have to download such huge files) and for database management. Thank you!1 vote

Include a column for last flag added
The new column would show the LastFlag added in the item grid and only display whichever flag name from the ItemFlags table that had the most recent date.1 vote
Keep history with rightsholder instead of the most recent entry only
We would like to see a history of the communications with the rightsholder. Right now, we can only upload one document, which makes it difficult in those situations where Publisher A says "we don't own it" and sends us to Publisher B. We can only upload the final email for Publisher B. The next time we ask permission for the item, the item still says Publisher A, but our records say Publisher B. We can add notes, but they are not searchable, and then we have to recreate the process all over again. Having the ability to upload multiple documents means we can retrace that conversation. We also have some publishers that send us both a contract and an invoice. We would like to upload both so we can compare the two and have a record of whether the invoice was received.

Options besides 'Granted' or 'Denied' in Contact Rightsholder option
In a Fair Use situation, for example, a rightsholder has died and we can use it fairly, but there was no formal permission granted. We would like to have an options such as "Fair Use" and/or "Good Faith" that will help indicate that copyright wasn't formally granted or denied, but that we have a reason to use this item that is within the law.1 vote
Enable 'Course Not Configured' message to be editable
Reference Atlas Systems ticket 36722
Currently, a message displays to users when reserves is not configured for a particular course (using Canvas integration, and possibly other LMS integrations). The message reads "This course has not yet been configured for Ares access. Please contact your instructor or system administrator about configuring this course for use with Ares." We would like this message to be editable/customizable. Per the ticket referenced above, this is not possible with the current Ares configuration.1 vote
Allow permalinks to course pages
Currently, you can make permalinks to individual items but not the actual course pages. It would be helpful if you could link to the course pages as well.3 votes
Ares client hosted
To save time and energy and to have seamless client upgrades/fixes, the staff client should be cloud-based for hosted servers. Too much time is wasted upgrading every client workstation and making sure related software is also up to date.1 vote

Update the Google Scholar addon so that instead of using IE it uses chromium scripting. This would also have to happen in the client. IE is being completely decommissioned in June 20221 vote0 comments · Addons · Admin →
Deep Linking in LMS (i.e. Brightpace)
Continue to process items in the Ares client, however the link would appear in the LMS, specifically in Brightspace under the weekly modules. Faculty would essentially have their notes, links, and readings under one specified module.
Users would not have to use the drop down link in Brightspace to access readings outside the LMS.2 votes
Include submission date in Items table
It would be nice to include the submission date as a field in the Items table. Currently, this is only a field in the History table and cannot be displayed in the results table when you run a search1 vote
Add ability to increase font size in the client
The font size in the client is very small and difficult for people who have visual impairment. But there doesn't seem to be a way to customize the font size in client options.3 votes
