  1. ETD Admin Reports - Schedule reports

    As an ETD administrator, I would like to be able to run reports on a regular basis automatically on a schedule that I set in ETD Admin.
    Call to Action: ETD ADMINS please comment and add how you would want this scheduled reports feature to work for your needs! :)

  4. Add degree date filter for reports

    Date Submitted is a current filter, but Degree Year and Month filters would be more help to us when running a report of ETDs delivered to our IR.

  5. Change name prompt to "name as appears on title page"

    This would be useful to libraries that use reports to aid with cataloging.

  7. Change language of standing order from "library copy"

    Not all standing orders go to the library, so this language can be confusing. Request to update the language to reflect "school" or "department" or something less specific.

  8. Limit Degree Date Month options

    Degree Date Field during student submission: allow to edit the options in the Month dropdown to include only certain months. Our school confers degrees only in the months of November, March and May. Having all months listed allows for errors as students may choose the wrong month and then it needs to be corrected.

  9. Allow tags to be assigned from submission record page

    The tag chooser would be nice to have right under the tag info on the right sidebar.

  10. Put checklist and decision on the same page

    Generally, our decision is based on the checklist--doing both from the same page would be helpful.

  12. Add note under the Institutional Student ID field

    We’ve seen some cases where a student has entered in the wrong text instead of their correct Harvard ID number. Will you please add a note under the Institutional Student ID field that says, “Harvard HUID”.

  13. Add document upload functionality to administrative documents page

    The administrative documents section is intended as a spot to upload university-specific documents, but there isn't a way to attach documents in the prompt. Consider adding an "attach" function so that admins can add blank versions of the document to the prompt (so that it is easily accessible to students, instead of requiring hyperlinks in the prompt, or for students to have to retrieve it elsewhere.

  14. Add note advising students not to use institutional email address

    Students sometimes enter their institutional email, which often expires very soon after graduation. Requiring an address that isn't from the institution (via some kind of validation), or at least reminding them to use one, would be very helpful.

  15. Allow for non-traditional / non-pdf File Types as main file

    For graduate programs that have a movie or audio file as the primary output of the program, I would like to have that file be the primary file. Currently the ETD Administrator workaround of putting in "placeholder" pdf and including the main file as a supplemental file does not meet my needs.

  16. Prevent student from submitting ETD if embargo is requested and and embargo document isn't uploaded to the submission

    Some schools require students to upload a signed approval form to the Administrative Documents page when requesting a ProQuest or IR embargo. These institutions would like to have a rule making upload of the Administrative Document required iff the student has requested an embargo.

  17. Assign to me option on Assign Administrator page

    Assign Administrator page: We have a long list of administrators to scroll through as we search for a name to assign. Please add “Assign to me” option at the top of the list for efficiency.

  19. upload multiple files at once

    When we register decisions, we often attach multiple documents to our emails for students (such as formatting notes and the various paperwork they need to complete) so that they receive this all at once as part of their ETD processing.

    Currently, you have to browse/select/attach each individual file. A multifile upload option so that we could select multiple files to upload at the same time would be greatly appreciated.

  20. Provide an option to notify (email) the student when their submission is assigned to an administrator

    Provide the option to automatically email the student (perhaps through a check box) when their submission is assigned to another administrator.
