  1. Add credentials and licensure fields to researcher web profiles

    Our healthcare clinicians and have their medical license information and board certifications display on their academic profiles. We would like to be able to display this information in the researcher profiles as well. We would want the researcher or their delegates to maintain and enter this information, as it is not part of our central directory.

    Examples: https://medicine.uiowa.edu/internalmedicine/profile/christina-charis-donelson

  2. Ability for researchers to show/hide details in the Communication section of their profile

    Our researcher contact details are imported daily and we are finding some researchers add other email, phone and address details via their profile and would rather the alternate contact details be displayed.

    We would like a button next to each entry in the Communication section so researchers can decide which to make visible, similar to the toggle visible/hidden icon available in the Affiliations section.

  3. Expose all User record fields on the Researcher subject area

    Currently, the User fields that are part of Researcher subject area are incomplete. I need to be able to include the campus that the researcher is associated with in my report.

    I cannot get the information out of the Researcher Subject area as it is not exposed.

    There appears to be no API or analytic subject area that all the researcher contact information, identifiers, urls (image and profile), keywords, affiliations, assets etc is available from.

    I would like to see all the user fields included on the researcher subject area.

    The use case is to be able to use the…

  4. Issue with OA status on closed asset with open manuscript

    There seems to be no way to add an open access manuscript to an asset for a work whose published version is closed without listing the entire asset as OA.

    This is a major issue because a central use case for Esploro is to provide openly accessible manuscript versions of closed works. This problem means that we currently cannot add an open manuscript to a non-OA asset (i.e. journal article) without marking the entire asset as OA, which is incorrect and misleading.

    There is a workaround, but fixing this would be extremely helpful in the long run as we scale…

  5. Option to display just the Output on the Researcher Profile

    Hello,
    It would be great to be able to have the option to display either just the Output section for the Researcher Profile or have the option to display the Output tab first before the profile. Since most of the information from the profile page requires active perusal from the faculty, some of the information can be outdated or not "fleshed out" (some of our faculty does not have any profile information on their page)

  6. Auto Assignment for Asset Types

    We have regularities in terms of which colleague checks which type of assets. It would be nice if I could automatically add the assginment to the asset type for these people. otherwise, as admin, I always have to check first and then end up assigning the same colleagues again anyway.

  7. Ability to Upload updated Internal Organization file without overwriting the whole structure

    The ability to uplaod a new internal organization file (exported from Workday with edits) without overwriting the existing structure or detaching assets would be a huge time saver. Right now we have to go in manually and make significant changes on a regular basis because our university re-organizes frequently.

  8. Allow repository staff to send canned responses

    Allow customers the ability to create and store canned messages that can be used when communicating with researchers. Esploro already offers the ability to create custom return reasons that can be selected when returning a deposit. But this feature would be even more useful if selecting of one of those reasons also sent customizable canned message that could be used to provide further instruction to the researcher on how to modify and resubmit their deposit. It would be useful to have a set of canned messages that could be used when approving a deposit to notify the researcher if any…

  9. Include additional entities on CV (media mentions, projects)

    Add the option to include missing entities (media mentions & projects) on the CV.
    As we enable these new features on profiles they are more obviously missing on the CV.

  10. The 'Pages' field should appear in all asset types

    Hi,
    The "Pages" field appears only in some of the asset types. It should appear in all of them.

  11. Esploro - Metadata Embargoes for Existing ETDs

    Dear Team,

    The RMIT Research Repository team regularly receives advice from the School of Graduate Research that an embargo has been approved for an ETD that is already available open access via the Research Repository.

    ETDs affected are:

    ETD Doctorate (we've labelled this Doctor of Philosophy (PhD))
    ETD Doctorate (we've labelled this Professional Doctorate)
    ETD Graduate (we've labelled this Masters by Research)

    There would commonly be around 20 of these per year with numbers expected to increase over the next few years. They occur when thesis authors request a temporary embargo due to contractual obligations with publishers and/or partner organisations,…

  12. Facet drafts by category or priority

    By adding a facet to drafts it will be possible to filter and order the sub-categories within drafts to organise, prioritise and focus on work items. This could be achieved by applying flags which could be filtered in the facet. Flags could be applied to a set of assets e.g. by Primary Identifier.

  14. Ability to update affiliation of researchers attached to a grant

    When adding a researcher to a grant you are not able to update their affiliation.
    Assuming Esploro will be developed to show collaboration in grants, it will be necessary to have the correct affiliation showing for the researchers attached to a grant, similar to the affiliation for researchers attached to an asset.

  15. Configure Time Delay of Letter Delivery

    Similar to scheduling the time of an email in Outlook (see attachment), permit the Esploro letters administrator to set a time delay for when letters are sent.

    Our use case is as follows:
    When we enter new theses, it can take up to 15 minutes for them to be available via the public portal after record 'Approval'. If enabled, a Deposit Status Update Letter is sent to the author immediately on 'Approval'. If the author opens up their letter straight away, they are presented with a dead link. We have disabled the Deposit Status Update Letter as a result.
    If…

  16. Close current internal affiliations for purged users

    When a user is purged their researcher record is updated from "Affiliated" to "Non-Affiliated - Previously Affiliated." However, their internal affiliations are not moved from "Current" to "Previous". In order to do that, customers must additionally run the Update Set of Researchers job. We recommend that this functionality be added to the purge job so that when a user is purged all open internal affiliations are closed with todays date.

    We would like to see information in the profiles that indicates what Teams, Committees, and Working Groups a person is on or has been on in the past. The field should be indexed so it is searchable and include a date range.

  19. Bulk update/delete activities

    While one can load activities (e.g., courses being taught) via spreadsheet, one cannot modify or delete existing ones except manually one by one. The ability to remove a set of activities in bulk would allow an institution to refresh data of faculty activities at scale. (Support for activities in the API could also serve this use case.)

  20. Enable suppression of assets on portal and profiles before approval of the asset

    We can currently only suppress assets from the portal and profiles after we've approved the asset post. This approach carries the risk of forgetting to adjust the asset's visibility later, potentially leading to it being visible when it shouldn't be.

    Ideally, you should be able to complete all aspects of an asset post, including adjusting its visibility, before approving it. This is particularly crucial for key functionalities like the visibility of an asset.
