WAYFless URL to access RefWorks 3 directly without using login page.
We would need a WAYFless URL to RefWorks 3. In our workflows users want to go directly to RefWorks 3 from within other applications. The route to go to the login page is not needed with a WAYFLess URL. Haveing requested this already three years ago nothing seems to have happened. Frustrating.
Thank you for your feedback, and apologies for the late response.
We will be taking a look at this, however at this time we cannot provide an expected schedule. While the benefit of this feature to the users is clear, we are currently focusing on closing some parity gaps vs. legacy RefWorks and on completing some key roadmap features. I will update here when we will have something more concrete to share.

I strongly support a WAYFless integration. This will greatly enhance user experience by streamlining the login process and and avoiding the frequent problem of users creating multiple accounts or forgetting their RefWorks login credentials. Plenty of other vendors have achieved this, including O'Reilly, HathiTrust, and many publishers. PLEASE PURSUE.
Come on guys, where almost one year further. Still nothing?
Currently it is three clicks, plus selecting the institute name, to export a reference from our discovery platform into RefWorks. That could be one click.
Rubbish isn't it. How hard can it be?

Requested the same information from RefWorks support earlier this month - and received confirmation that there was no WAYFLess support in the v3 U/I.
