Make it possible to add the RefID to an export or to a custom style
We would like to export from New RefWorks with a RefID included. At this moment, the default export options don't include the RefID and it's not possible to add the field RefID to a custom style.
Use case: two researchers have to look at the literature for a systematic review and decide on inclusion or exclusion. They want to have a list in Excel with title and abstract and RefID to make it easier to compare and clean their list afterwards. This is possible in Legacy RefWorks, but not in New/ProQuest RefWorks.

In using the Legacy version of RefWorks, our team (Guidelines Development at AORN) have used the REF ID as an export field to create evidence tables and keep our hundreds of references organized. This functionality is not available in the update. Please vote to make this (seemingly easy change) available in the update so we can make the switch from Legacy to this update! Thanks!!
You can customize an output style to include the RefID...
