  1. Create a Student Checklist

    In addition to the checklist that admins use, it would be nice for the admin to be able to create a student checklist that the student must check off before a thesis/dissertation can be submitted for review.

    For example, our students must have included a signed title page in the manuscript, or they must have included a signed/dated institutional library release, etc. This “actionable” checklist can be a part of submission requirements that must be checked off by the student before the student is allowed to submit the manuscript for review. This will cut down on a lot of “decision”…

  2. Allow Checklist to be Viewed by Students

    Currently, there is a “View Checklist”, which is only visible by an admin. I have to complete this checklist before I can “Accept” a dissertation for publishing. It would be nice to have this checklist also student-facing. The student shouldn’t be able to make edits, but should be visible for viewing purposes, so they can see what information I need and what has been collected (or completed) so far. If institutions do not want the students to see their internal checklist, they should have the option (under “Manage Site”) to simply turn it off.
