  1. Allow students to change name for delivery of copy order

    Posted on behalf of Indiana University: When a student orders a bound copy, the system demands that their name be left in the top field. If the bound copy comes to my office, it works out because they simply put our address in the remaining field and we are still able to receive the bound copy without issues but this is creating a far larger problem. That mailing address is then being forwarded to the US Copyright Office for those students who place a formal copyright on their dissertation and the notification of the copyright is sent to my office,…

  2. Option to turn off individual email notifications when titles delivered to ProQuest

    On behalf of Harvard University: we would like an option to turn off the individual emails that are sent to the primary administrator when each dissertation submission is successfully delivered to PQ, or otherwise just make this a digest instead of individual emails for each author.

  3. Additional View of Copyright Permissions

    As an admin user I would like the ability to see the copyright permission docs that a student uploads in the ETD details page. Currently in order to see if copyright permission docs have been uploaded, an admin needs to go to Revise PDF. To determine if copyright permissions have even been uploaded you need to do this step for every student. Once the PDF is deliver “Revise PDF” is disabled and then you are no longer able to see any of the copyright permissions a student uploaded

  5. Allow Changes to ETD Orders Before Submissions Are Delivered

    Once an order has been submitted through the ETD site, payment additions cannot be made.

    For example: If a student would like to add additional print copies to an order to get the multiple product discount, or change book sizes from 6x9 to 8.5x11 (or visa-versa), add Open Access or Copyright, the ETD site is not setup to allow these order changes.

    The only changes that can currently be made to ETD orders is the removal of items already listed on the order to process credit card refunds.

    Enhancement Request: Allow orders to be changed or edited by the student…

  11. Allow administrators to add to the Department dropdown menu

    At the moment, as far as I can tell, administrators have to contact ProQuest to add tot he Department dropdown menu that students choose from. It would be useful to be able to add options there myself.

  13. Allow One-Time Data Entry of Multiple ETD Department Names

    Allow more than one department to be added/edited/removed at a time.

    This can be accomplished by adding functionality like the Data Validation Drop-Down List feature in Excel. Department names can be entered on one line, each separated by a comma, and then saved to create a final drop-down list.

    Or add functionality for uploading and downloading of CSV text files allowing data to be saved in an ETD department list table structured format. The csv file can be created automatically when a new ETD site build request form is submitted for processing.

  15. Allow administrators a window of time to undeliver

    If an administrator accidentally delivers a document without making some required change, it would be useful to have a window of time in which they are able to undeliver the documents themselves without having to contact ProQuest ETD

  16. Data from "Minor/Major Revisions" to be included in the email notifications we receive when student's submit a revision

    Currently, when students submit a revision, we receive email notifications letting us know that the student revised their ETD. The email provides a link to ProQuest where we can access the newly submitted PDF.

    I would like to suggest an idea for these email notifications to include the data from the minor/major revision we requested so that prior to viewing the ETD, we are reminded of the details of the revision we requested for the student to make.
    Or if that's not possible, maybe a link that goes to the "View Decisions" page so we can review the original request…

  19. Allow students self-service option to modify ordered copies / copyright fees

    Students can currently email or call ProQuest to modify their orders (for instance if they didn't order enough copies the first time), but it would be really helpful if some type of "modify order" button could be integrated into their dashboards for two specific cases:

    1. When students decide to change their copyright status, they're often frustrated they can't just go in and do this or have us do it. Since this change would be made prior to delivery at the end of the semester, allowing students to have a self-service to add or remove the copyrighting option would give them…

  20. Student author permission to view committee review page.

    The number one question from students is who has approved their thesis. I have to look it up and tell them. If they could view it, that would be a tremendous help. We use this function for the final authorization of the document now that we have gone paperless. I would also like a separate spot like thesis adviser for department administrator in the ETD section.
