  1. When importing items from another course, retain the custom sort order

    If you clone a course, it retains the sort order. But when a new course is created and then you try to import items from a previous course via the web, it loses the custom order.

  2. Show item usage count from custom search

    Make it a part of the custom search but not in every grid result in the client.

    Sites seem to want this for reporting purposes versus processing.

  3. View copyright fees paid per course

    Would like to do a custom search for a course or list of courses and have the "Current Course Copyright" value show in the grid.

  4. Allow sorting of tags in something other than alphabetical

    Several sites have requested this option but their examples are always Week 10 coming before Week 2 in the list. Are there other examples for needing to customize the order or is it only for the weeks?

  7. Show usage count in grid of items on clone course form

    When viewing items in a course to decide which ones to clone to a new course, seeing the item usage is helpful.

  8. Add Loan Period description field to all grids in the client

    It is missing from the Course record's items grid.

  13. Allow instructors to submit multiple requests at once

    How would sites like this to work? Would the instructor need to create an Excel file? Or would they paste a series of citations and staff would have to interpret them?

  14. Would like to organize items in folders versus tags on the web

    Sites who used to use Docutek miss the option of organizing items in folders. Tags don't seem to be as desirable.

  17. ADA compliant staff client

    Staff would like to be able to change the size/font without the screens being squished. Currently, increasing the font size or resolution on Windows makes certain buttons and menu options not visible.

  18. Workaround security issues with edge browser in hosted LMS environment

    The MS Edge browser has become particularly stringent in enforcing security matters. In particular, when using Canvas (hosted) with an in-domain Ares server through LTI Edge will sometimes refuse to display the Ares interface. This has been confirmed while working with Angela. The workaround to move the Ares server is somewhat undesirable, as is reminding users to use a different browser.

  19. Allow for sorting by Article Title instead of Journal Title in the web

    Currently, Article Title is appended to the Journal Title field for displaying in the web, making it impossible to sort on instead of Journal Title.

  20. Show which staff member added a user note

    Have an "added by" field for user notes like there is for item notes.
