  1. Sincronización de mis cuentas de refwork inscritas con diferentes nombres

    No logro sincronizar dos cuentas con diferentes nombres y no puedo acceder a mis carpetas en un solo lugar

  2. Being able to display a message to all users when they login

    We made changes to one of our institutional styles and I wanted to have a message show to all users when they login. I am sure there are other things we would want to alert them to changes we have made to RefWorks. Messages could display until the user dismisses them.

  3. RefWorks on board in a computer. Like Endnote is resident.

    Need to be able to access RefWorks on an offline basis. Not everyone can write their papers on an online only basis.

  4. link resolver visible in publicly shared folders

    I would like to have our LinkResolver links visible in publicly shared folders as an alternative to attachments. That way we can prevent giving illegal access to subscription based articles outside our institution.

  5. Añadir una campo personalizado. Add a custom field

    Quisiera que el campo personalizado se vea igual que todos los demás campos, en todas las referencias: que esté a la vista cuando editas, sin tener que ir referencia por referencia, clicar “añadir más campos", buscarlo y rellenarlo. ¿Es posible hacer eso?
    Add a custom field. I want the custom field to look the same as all the other fields, in all the references: to be visible when you edit, without having to go reference by reference, click "add more fields", search and fill it in. Is it possible to do that?

  6. Espacio muy estrecho al visualizar = Very narrow space when displaying

    Cuando se visualiza una referencia, el espacio que se abre a la derecha, en vertical, es demasiado estrecho. ¿Se puede ampliar al doble, por lo menos?

    When a reference is displayed, the space that opens to the right, vertically, is too narrow. Can it be expanded to at least double?

  7. Multiple Citations on Google Docs

    On Google Docs, refworks will generate the same list of references multiple times while multiple people work on it. Is it possible to have just a single list on google docs?

  8. Platform modification

    Thank you for this opportunity. I want to suggest that the platform be modified so that one can read an article while using the web version.

  9. exported list of references

    On the old RefWorks, I could enter RefIDs manually on any word processor whatsoever. There's a description of how to do so, here: http://www.refworks.com/refworks2/Working_Offline.htm#Workingoffline

    We should still be able to do this. It's particularly important, since I don't want to be online in order to write. In fact, there are a lot of people who use Freedom or analogous software to cut off the internet when they have writing to do.

  10. An localized icon image for OpenURLs (like Legacy RefWorks has)

    Currently each citation in legacy RefWorks can be configured to include the institution's unique image in place of the OpenURL link. Not sure why this is not an option in New RefWorks

  11. folder lock

    Have an option to lock certain folders which prohibits articles being deleted from them. Would help from accidentally losing files.

  12. Please bring back "My List" to the new RefWorks

    Please bring back the "My List" function from legacy RefWorks. I realize you can create reference lists from folders or projects or if all the references you need appear on a single page (e.g., what you've just imported). But, what is missing is a way to create a temporary list of references you are working with without having to put them into another folder or project. For example, if you've written your paper and just need to add those last handful of references, there is no longer an efficient way to create that list while navigating between different pages and…

  13. References Created per Month in new Refworks

    The "References Created per Month" statistics are offered by Legacy RefWorks but not by New RefWorks. These statistics are really useful to evaluate the RefWorks usage in our libraries and they are the more important for us.

    We like to have these statistics in New Refworks too.

  14. HTTP prefix inserted to DOI

    I'm very happy to hear that APA 7th was updated so that the correct prefix is now inserted to the doi code (see https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/909445/suggestions/39183304).

    Now, please note that this should apply also for all other major styles! The doi has really become a standard and therefore, reference management software should definitely support the use of doi, and expressly by inserting the entire prefix https://doi.org/ as now recommended in the latest Crossref standard https://www.crossref.org/display-guidelines/

    So please, perform the corresponding update also to other major output styles, such as Chicago, Harvard,Vanouver

  15. Add Line Breaks to New RefWorks

    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.

  17. Show the record count of ONLY the folder being deduplicated

    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.

  18. Limit record

    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.
    Thank You

  19. Enable generation and addition of an Open URL link to a custom citation style

    We would like to be able to generate and add an open URL link to a custom citation style. In Legacy RefWorks, you are able to build a custom style with an Open URL but this is not possible in the new RefWorks because fields can not be defined in two different ways within the same style. We would like to use these URLs with our link resolver information when we are sending result sets to our patrons.
