I would love to see the automation of capitalizing proper nouns in APA. I believe that the only way to currently achieve this is to edit the citation after export.33 votes
Please add the function to copy references to other projects not "Using the Export References" or "Using a Shared Folder".
Both of these methods require many steps.
We need more easy way to copy references to other projects.14 votes

Please improve Save to RefWorks to import PMID from PubMed.43 votes
Hello, would it be possible to Bulk edit also the field DOI? Especially records imported from PubMed include [doi] in this field which should not display in a bibliography.
It would be very helpful if we could Replace [doi] with zero characters in all records at once.8 votes
We would like to make accounts delete/inactive by batch after narrowing by "Last active" on the admin page of New RefWorks. This is available on Legacy RefWroks' admin page.34 votes
We would like to export from New RefWorks with a RefID included. At this moment, the default export options don't include the RefID and it's not possible to add the field RefID to a custom style.
Use case: two researchers have to look at the literature for a systematic review and decide on inclusion or exclusion. They want to have a list in Excel with title and abstract and RefID to make it easier to compare and clean their list afterwards. This is possible in Legacy RefWorks, but not in New/ProQuest RefWorks.11 votes

We have institutions which have multiple campuses or branch office and use a common institutional email address domain.
If only one campus/office of a large-scale institution subscribes RefWorks, it needs to restrict to access or create new account from other places.
I think that to add the authentication by all of the following required items would be resolved:
- access to the unique URL
- enter the invitation code
- enter the institutional email address domain7 votes
Enable stats at the folder level. If we make a folder of citations public, we can see how many view the folder. This would be really helpful!
At this point, we would have to use a link manager, like Bitly to count views. Having to add another platform, such as Bitly, to support our RefWorks-related needs is not ideal.6 votes
We can set the language by ourselves when we login to WnC with Legacy RefWorks account, but we cannot when we login to New version's account. Please add menu to set the language even when we login to WnC with New RefWorks accounts! This request is for users who also uses non-English languages in the world, but I think it is needed.23 votes
Am I the only one who thinks the Write-n-cite "insert citation"-window functionality is horrible?
1) add a possibility re-size the window such that you can see more than just two references.
2) allow proper search function - at minimum a possibility to search by typing two author names but preferably also words from any field in the reference.
Currently I see only two lines
and (maybe I'm doing this wrong but anyway) can only search by single author (surname).67 votes
A mobile interface or app would be really helpful to allow me to check references on the go. For example I might log into RefWorks in the library on my mobile to check for a book I previously used, as I imported the reference from my library website I know I can tap a link to take me direct to my library search result for that book and get the exact location.
Secondly it would be great if I could scan the barcode of a book on my mobile to quickly add it to my reference list.4 votes
Please add a line break function to the style editor. For those of us that have to submit Working Bibliographies for auditing, it would be great if we were able to export our large amounts of references with the abstract already on the next line as opposed to having to go back and perform line breaks manually after exporting.3 votes
RCM: Add a "Recent" or "Frequently Used" option to help users easily retrieve references that have been recently/frequently used.

Records can't support two links in the URL field, but mutliple URLS on import are all placed there. Some databases (Ovid) allow inclusion of either the "permalink" record URL and/or the external link resolver (full text). When the records are in Refworks, neither link works because they are in one URL field with a space separating them. It would be great if RW could support multiple links for a record (via import) but if not, then perhaps block on space or on the next "http" found?3 votes
When finding duplicates in a top level folder, the record count shows the sum of all subfolders too, which suggests that they are ALL being searched (they are NOT at present). If the record count shows only the active folder being searched, it is more clear.3 votes
- Custom fields should be definable at the PROJECT level, as defaults to add to each new reference added to the project.
- Export and import of ref projects should include metadata for custom field names, and add those in (on import) so that the data is not lost.
- Allow for export of metadata, so that as instructor I can create a specific set of custom fields, and have students import it to start a project.
Current it only says "updated: sometime" instead of a specific time stamp. This is very frustrating because I can't be sure my notes are definitely saved.3 votes
is it possible to limit the import records from Libraries databases (like in the old release)?
it could be important to have limits of 20-50-100- 200 records per search.
