  1. Compartir una carpeta de referencias con el enlace a la misma, para que pueda acceder quien lo tenga.

    Compartir el enlace permite que la persona acceda a las referencias, aunque no haga parte de la organización a la que yo pertenezco. Esto es ideal para cuando se realizan investigaciones con otras instituciones.

  2. Include number of references in file view

    Finding a reference is difficult in category view, please make it more easier to spot how many references a material is having when navigating to the contents of a folder or a section.
    By having a reference number outside it will be easier to filter just by going through files without need to open then scroll all the way down to find it https://buyessays.us

  4. Assign custom sorting: chronologically, but in 17th ed. Chicago Style-Notes and Bib

    While I want my entries to remain in Chicago Style, sometimes it is helpful to sort chronologically, but in more detail than RW currently allows which is only by year then author. I want to order the list more accurately: Year Ascending; Month Ascending; Day Ascending; Author; Title. I realize I can reorder the fields to begin with the full date, but then they are not in Chicago Style. How can I reorder the citations to be truly chronological (as I will have multiple dates within each year), without changing the Chicago Style order of each field?

  6. Configure the "Citation View" "Settings" icon (the "Gear") to function in the Firefox browser

    The "Settings" gear icon in the "Citation View" does not function in the Firefox browser, i.e., the "Gear" icon does not respond to a mouse click. This feature works in Chrome as described in the User Guide and, once set using Chrome, displays the Citation Style selected using the Chrome browser.

  7. Search option for document in google doc tool by Ref ID

    In word tool as well as in google doc tool if I want to cite the reference using Ref ID search (which is good new idea) but not able to do it. So not useful due to this limitation.

  11. Include information about RCM within the online RefWorks interface

    Currently in the Tools section of RefWorks there is only information on Write-n-Cite. Users are finding this and downloading Write-n-Cite when we are recommending they use RCM instead. Can the information on citing in Word in the Tools section be updated to explain that users can use RCM if they have Word 2016 or later?

  12. When articles with given tag are viewed, implement sorting by date, author etc as in all refs view or folder view

    When viewing references by tag, the 'Sort By' option does not appear: I cannot therefore browse refs e.g. by date (to see most recent articles first)

  13. Clearer web page instructions for creating an alternative password for RCM.

    More detail of how to set up the alternative password option would be useful. We no longer recommend using WNC and want to encourage new users to try RCM. The current account management page doesn't make it very clear: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/RefWorks/Product_Documentation/RefWorks_User_Guide/0200_Getting_Started_with_RefWorks#Managing_Your_Account

  14. Strengthen email verification process

    During the recent problems with SSO we've been encouraging students to use the forgotten password option to create an alternative password.

    This has highlighted that students often mis-spell or use incorrect email addresses when initially seeting up their accounts.

    Despite the fact that on setup RefWorks asks students to confirm their email address, students can bypass verification and potentially go on to use RefWorks with an incorrect email adrress attached to their account.

    Strengthening the verification process, e.g. by activating accounts only upon reciept of the confirmation email would help to avoid this.

  15. Make more author name flexibility possible!

    Currently, anything that does not follow a strict last-first name format doesn't work in Refworks. (E.g. the citation manager can't handle "Paul VI" as an author.) This seems like it would be so easy to fix by the use of quotation marks or some other indicator to keep the formatting as it is typed by the user. The entire world doesn't strictly follow Western-style naming traditions....

  16. Allow verbatim text from author field

    Have the option to remove the automatic 'Last name, first name' format of the author field and instead pipe verbatim text into references. This would especially help when the author is an organisation.

  17. Different sort orders with different reference types

    The Cite Them Right 11th edition Harvard style should have films sorted in the reference list by director, not title. But this is not possible because different reference types cannot have different sort orders. Could that be changed?

  19. Please add the "Duplicate" [citation] option from Legacy to new.

    Please add the option to duplicate a citation from Legacy to new Refworks. I have used it often, and find it a quick way to add similar citations that are not from a literature database. It's the "Duplicate" button from the "Edit" option that I miss already. Thanks.

  20. Add option to include publication field in a repeated reference when author unkown

    In the Footnotes Settings in the citation style editor, there is an option to "Show only author, title & cited pages" for a repeated reference. This is great!

    However, in Chicago Notes & Bibliography style, when the citation for an unsigned newspaper article is repeated (for example), the shortened citation should also include the publication.

    For example, this reference would be initially cited as such:

    "Number of Out-of-Wedlock Births a Record," Hartford Courant, November 26, 2006.

    But the shortened note should read:

    "Number," Hartford Courant.

    Can you add an option to include the publication field when there is…
