  2. try to generate a performance: function FIND ( phrases, words, collors, field codes...)

    The idea is to find all you need by using an pertinent function FIND which works with all formats.

  4. 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

  6. Improve to DeDuplicate of Non-English References

    New RefWorks identifies some Japanese (or non-English) references as duplication even when they are not duplicated.
    Improvement of DeDuplication for Non-English language references is expected.

  7. Increase the number of allowed subfolders

    Currently allowed 4 subfolders under each main folder. Would like that increase by several more allowed subfolders to better organize large projects or issues.

  8. 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…

  10. Labels and comments

    Anything in RefWorks is working properly during the last weeks. I am affraid that some relevant research information is missed. This would have to be inconceivable in a tool like this.

  11. LibreOffice integration via a plugin (like Write-n-Cite with Word)

    Although RefWorks supports exporting bibliographies in ODF format, it's missing the integration with LibreOffice. Other reference management tools do provide this, so it would be useful if RefWorks did as well. Thank you!

  13. RefWorks Citation Manager - change default to last folder used instead of "all references"

    The RefWorks Citation Manager add-in always defaults to the “All references” folder after choosing an action. For example, if I go to a different folder and choose to “Edit & Cite” for one of the citations, it then toggles back to the All references folder instead of staying in the folder I had been using. This requires me to keep re-selecting the folder where I had accumulated sources for a project.

    For workflow, it would be useful to have RefWorks Citation Manager default to folder last used instead of to All References.

  14. Create bibliography from folder (including subfolders)

    If the option currently exists, I've been unable to find it. I have references for a project separated into folders (instead of tagging) under a root folder and would like to create a bibliography including all references within the folder and subfolders at once so they are in the correct order.
