  2. Add the ability for group members in a shared Project to leave feedback/messages for each other.

    For example, I have a professor working with a group of students. They are all collaborating on a Project. The professor would like to leave feedback for the students regarding the references they are adding.

  3. Refworks plugin available in Overleaf (LaTeX editor)

    A direct plugin to insert bibliography from Refworks in Overleaf (like it's possible with others reference managers as Mendely, Zotero...)

  4. "Refworks Citation Manager (RCM)"

    I would like "Refworks Citation Manager (RCM)" to appear explicitly in Tools / Cite references in the word processor / Microsoft word, since it is surprising not to find this term, because in the videos he is mentioned

  5. Bibliography order of citations with same author and year

    When creating a bibliography in Word using Write 'n Cite, RefWorks automatically bases the order of citations on the author, then the title. However, when using two different citations with the same author and year, I want the order of those citations to be the same order I used them in the text.
    Now I have 'author(2021b)' first in my text, then 'author(2021a)' because it's sorted like that in the bibliography.

  6. Offline GUI

    I would like be able to use Refworks on a computer that doesn't have internet access. A GUI which allows me to manage citations without an internet connection.

  7. New Folder

    Importing a citation from an external source, the site asks what folder. Can you put a create folder ability on the window? The window 'pull' down that lists my current folder/location. It would be helpful to have the ability to create a new folder there. Right now, you have to go out of the import window, etc.

    Also, importing citations, the same window asking for the location. When you select a check box, the window doesn't auto close (which it should). To close your selection, you must mouse click out on the page. Then the window closes, but doesn't show…

  9. Using Word Add-In and Plug-In with Track Changes and Comments

    Many students are working on extensive research papers using RefWorks plug-in or add-in in Word. They work with a faculty, using Track Changes and comments (either through sharing or saving and sending).
    There needs to be a section about how to safely use Track Changes with RefWorks. I had a student have a capstone paper really messed up and it was believed by tech support that track changes was the culprit.
    This is how people work and collaborate, so we need to understand up front how to safely use RefWorks and Track Changes in a Word document.
    A video would…

  10. Allow page numbers to be included in in-text citation for books in Google Doc AddOn

    It is currently not possible to add a specific page number or page range to an in-text citation when citing pages from a book. It is very common to need to cite particular pages, rather than a full book, so I expect this feature would be widely welcomed and used. Thank you!

  11. Make it faster

    For something that it paid for, my RefWorks is always moving REAL slow compared to other paid reference managers I've used (mainly EndNote). RefWorks seems to have trouble handling the 2,000+ references I've accumulated (and continue to accumulate) over my career.

  12. Enable customizing the dash between the page numbers

    RefWorks automatically uses a dash between page numbers in bibliography and I can't customize the dash. My uni requires us to use en dash in bibliography and I have to always edit it to the bibliography after creating it. It would be so much easier if i could customize the dash in citation style editor.

  13. Add a ref type for "tv progamme" and/or "streamed video"

    We would like more reference type options to support users adding content from streaming platforms such as BBC iplayer and the BUFVC site Box of Broadcasts. Currently we only have the basic 'video' option which is fine for adding films which require details such as director, distribution company etc. but the information needed to reference a tv broadcast in our Cite Them RIght Harvard style is quite different. An additional reference type would allow us to configure this to accomodate both types of video content.

  14. Make it works

    There are many potential improvements related with notes, how to find words, etc. But I would be happy if, at least, the poor functionalities that it has, could work properly.
    After contacting support service months ago, problems remains the same or even worse.

  16. Allow alteration of Tags at import

    Without increasing the number of clicks to import, please add the function to change tags at import. This function could be added to the Import References/Assign to Folder page without requiring additional clicks if the user is happy with the tags being brought in.

  17. Create a format to correctly cite APA 7th edition for white papers and published standards

    There is not a category to correctly import references for white papers or standards published by professional organizations. When attempting to adapt other reference types for this use, none work correctly. RefWorks should be able to manage these types of documents correctly.

    This request comes from case #00901397 sent to RefWorks Technical Services

  20. create an output style with sub-citations (see style Angewandte Chemie International)

    We need that Refworks support the sub-citation feature for the in-text citation and the reference list. There are many styles with this feature, Angewandte Chemie International... And a lot of science journals require this formatting.
