Back-up copies of previous versions of lists

A new member of academic staff recently deleted several sections and numerous resources from two reading lists by accident. There is currently no way of reverting to the previous versions of these lists, as Talis does not keep any back-ups. We can...

Ability to 'cut & paste' sections of a reading list into another reading list. I work on multiple programmes where my subject is one of several within a module, each of which has its own, specific reading list associated.

student view for unpublished lists

Some of our teachers would like to be able to see what their lists look like before they publish them, so that they only present students with the list in its finished form, as they intended it. It would be useful if the Student View option was av...

'View as a list owner' functionality

Often, when we are introducing new academic staff to Talis Aspire or running refresher sessions for list owners just before the start of a semester, our colleagues point out that the menus they see in the system are not the same as those on screen...

Enable preset customisation of List Publisher invitation text at tenancy level

We'd like to be able to pre-customise our List Publisher invitation text at tenancy level, instead of each time an invitation is sent. We have a standard text we send to new academics with their invitation, but each time Library staff send an invi...
