  1. Share entire project in New REFworks

    Share entire project in New REFworks
    Legacy RefWorks allows you to share an entire project.
    It is great that we now have the ability to have projects in the new format, but right now you can only share folders. Sharing an entire project would be helpful for many of us!

  4. Option to add to the field "short title" to the bibliography, citations and footnotes

    In the citation style editor I am not able to add the field "short title" to my bibliography, citations or footnotes. Only the reference type Generic contains the field short title.
    But for some citation styles it is required.

  5. Please make it possible to move large numbers of references from the last import page to a folder, all at once

    I have just imported 7600 references that I want to put all into the same folder (working on a systematic review). I can only move small quantities at a time as the select all features is limited to the records displayed. Selecting "display 2000 records" causes refworks to crash.

  6. Enable users to remove an attachment (PDF or other) from a record. When an attachment is added in error, this is a problem.

    Enable users to remove an attachment (PDF or other) from a record. When an attachment is added in error, this is a problem, and the user's only recourse if to delete the record and start over.

  7. Put in a duplicate/copy folder option

    In order to show progression of research it would be much easier if you could make a copy of a folder and then continue processing this new copy to maintain a record

  8. Edit author

    Sometimes authors have to be entered in manually. This is especially the case when I import PDFs - RefWorks captures the wrong authors. However, it would be easier if we could rearrange the order of authors manually. Currently, if I accidentally delete the first author or skipped a third author, I can't go back and add these authors in their correct order. Instead, I have to re-type all the author names again in the correct order.

    Please allow authors to be manually added and allow us to add authors in a specific order/ wherever we click in the author section.

  11. Update folder counts upon import

    Currently, after importing references from a file and specifying a folder location, the folder count isn't updated until a browser refresh. This can be troublesome because it then prompts to (re)import the folder.

  13. RCM Sort options: Ascending/Descending and within search results

    RCM search only sorts in descending order, nice for Dates but less for text fields (Author, Title). Toggle ascending vs. descending of a sort field would be ideal.

    Also, I notice that when searching for a reference in RCM, there is no sort at all. Adding the same (or any) sorting to RCM search results would really help.

  14. Document convert tool to match Legacy citations to new Refworks

    For Word documents created with Write-N-Cite but linked to a legacy Refworks account, have a WnC conversion tool. It would match the citations in the document, to records in the New Refworks account. Auto-convert might not be possible without matching record IDs, but maybe field matching could offer a suggested match to "confirm" at each citation link in the MS Word document.

  15. promotional materials

    A nice on-boarding idea: How about some promotional materials for new REFworks subscribers? We have a resource fair in the fall and would love to have something tangible to hand to students to promote this awesome product. :)

  17. Allow users to link their ProQuest MyResearch account to New RefWorks

    At the moment, you can only link the two if you have an account in the old RefWorks.

    I am happy to update that this has been completed. MyResearch users who have a (new) RefWorks account can link their accounts. Refer to the release notes for more information: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/RefWorks/Release_Notes/RefWorks_Release_Information/070_2021_RefWorks_Release_Information#Integration_between_RefWorks_and_My_Research
  18. Legacy vs New Proquest button does not save choice to always choose

    The "don't ask me this again" checkbox does not work. I need to make this choice everytime I import. Even after clearing cookies.

  19. Sign Up Interface - Customize/change "Enter your [University] email to begin"

    Need the ability to customize the word "University" in the sign-up interface, or change to "Institutional"/"Organization". This causes much confusion at sign-up because we are not a university, but have many affiliated/cross appointed university staff causing account confusion.
