  1. Import full date when importing newspaper articles from proquest historical newspapers database

    When importing citations from Proquest historical newspaper database, only the year is imported. This isn't satisfactory for creating notes/bibliographies including newspapers, which typically require mm/dd/yyyy information.

  2. Unable to delete a shared Refworks Project by the person with who we have shared it

    When we share our Refworks projects, the people with who we have shared it can delete that project, but when they delete it, the owner also lost.

    When a Project is shared with another person, that person also becomes an owner. All people who belong to a Project have equivalent permissions, including deleting a Project. This is how the feature is defined. A Project owner can leave the project any time from the Manage Project page, and that will not affect access of other owners.

  3. Be able to import your school contact list for student/faculty emails into RefWorks

    It would be great if we could have our school's contact info for emails imported into RefWorks so it was not necessary to manually type out each person's email for when you share a folder. This would greatly help when sharing with more than one person.

  4. Improve and fix RefWorks Projects

    Make 'Untitled Project' clearer. Also please fix a bug where after creating a new Project, a message appears each time a reference is imported asking which project is should be saved to, even after the project is deleted.

  5. **Yellow Pop-Up Menace**

    There is a persistent yellow pop up, which won't go away, no matter how many times you click the X.

    I propose it should disappear after the first click, or have a box to say 'don't show this message again'.

    Please vote for this - it's a menace.

  6. Fix downloading of attached files

    I can't download attachments from my Refworks library. I can't get in touch with support either. I would not recommend RefWorks to anybody.

  7. follow local folder

    I save all the PDFs of my papers on a local folder. It will be great if RefWorks could follow this folder and add the reference automatically as soon as I save it to my drive.

  9. 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.

  11. Allow page display customization

    I find that the "bubbly" nature of the new version makes it easy to start using, but now that I want to use it as a research tool, I would like to minimize the size of all the text, buttons, and icons so that more information can be displayed at one time. I would prefer the option to sort references and move through the platform efficiently. Make all my folders display in the same box (not separated by shared or not). In general, if it looked more like a computer files system rather than a phone app, it would allow…

  12. Search Databases

    Allow admins to add any databases to the Search Databases feature. For example, EBSCO databases, Gale Databases, Primo, WorldCat, Google Scholar, etc. It is currently limited to Z39.50, which is an old protocol.

  15. Fix bug when importing references and choosing destination folder

    There seems to be a bug in the new feature that allows you to choose a destination folder when importing a new reference. The first time I use it, it works well and I can choose from the drop-down menu. The second time (and every time after that), when I click the drop-down menu, none of my folders show up. I have to click through and import it, then assign a folder after the fact. Very frustrating because it works the first time!

  18. Journal names when abbreviated dont't get added to the reference list correctly.

    There seems to be a bug when adding references with abbreviated journal name to the reference list. Sometimes the reference gets divided into two lines even though it would fit to one line. This doesn't happen every time, but my collegeis having exatly the same problem.

  19. Have cursor appear when the "Insert/Edit Citation" window opens, without having to click the "Search References" bar

    I would like to suggest that when the "Insert/Edit Citation" window opens, it would be nice if the cursor appeared already in the "Search References" bar, rather than having to click on it. This would make the process much smoother.
