  5. Enable analytics to refine display of usage stats by IP range or email domain

    We would like to be able to access usage stats for partner institutions to whom we offer access to RefWorks via our account. This access has been set up using IP address ranges and email domains.

  6. Allow admins to delete deactivated accounts.

    We can deactivate accounts as admin, but we are unable to delete them. Admins should be able to delete accounts.

    I work in an institution that will reuse email addresses once a student leaves; this creates problems re: deactivated accounts in RefWorks. I would like to be able to delete accounts.

  7. Enable stats at folder level

    Enable stats at the folder level. If we make a folder of citations public, we can see how many view the folder. This would be really helpful!

    At this point, we would have to use a link manager, like Bitly to count views. Having to add another platform, such as Bitly, to support our RefWorks-related needs is not ideal.

  8. RefWorks Statistics - referencing/citation style being used

    If possible please include stats on what referencing/citation style our users are using in refworks (and if possible in WnC).

  11. Administrative reports to support migration from legacy RefWorks to New RefWorks

    Robust reporting is required to performance monitor the migration process from legacy RefWorks to New RefWorks. As both legacy and new RW accounts can co-exist hence why currently it is impossible to determine whether RW account holders have migrated any References from legacy platform to new platform. A migration report should be setup which should determine if any references from the legacy platform to the new platform have been migrated against each account (any new or legacy RW account). Through this, we would be able to analyse which user has migrated the references. Currently, 'Active / inactive' report from the…

  16. Include ISSN/ISBN in Publication admin analytics

    Add ISSN/ISBN column to the reports when downloaded. This will better enable librarians to use this data to analyze their collections, a common reason for having these reports at all. This may cause splintering of counts if users imported different ISNs for the same title (especially print vs e) but it would be worth that side effect to have the data. If you can provide separate print and e columns that would be ideal.

    It would be helpful if we could hide certain fields for manual input of references. Many of the fields are not used on a regular basis. Could we have the option of moving fields to the "Add More Fields" button?

    It would be useful if fields could be deleted as well as added when editing or compiling a manual reference e.g. Bills – we do not need the Sponsors field as it will add Anon which is not required.
