  1. Add a a saved default feature in the "Fields to include in the report" section for running reports.

    I would like to be able create a saved configuration option in the report section, so that I don’t need to select the fields I need each time I run a report

  3. Status for inactive Admins

    I would like to remove inactive Admins (left university system, no longer in role, etc) from the available admins to assign ETDs to, but I can continue to see the history of the work that those inactive Admins performed.

  4. Provide more information on Creative Commons options to help Authors and Site Administrators determine which CCs are appropriate

    Creative Commons licensing can be very confusing for Authors. Having additional information to explain the various licenses, as well as university recommendations (if any), would be helpful.

  5. Customize embargo reasons in drop-down menu

    As an ETD administrator for my institution I would like to be able to create embargo reasons for my IR that align with the standard reasons we recognize at our institution. In the dropdown "reasons" menu, it would be useful to be able to customize this list of reasons.

  6. Allow Administrators to see uploaded copyright forms on the Summary Page.

    It would make it easier for me to make sure that students are submitting their supplemental copyright forms, if I could see it from the summary page instead of hunting through the tabs.

  7. Make tags visible to my whole team.

    I use the ‘tag’ feature to identify different graduation terms and those ETDs that should not be published until a later time. These tags make my work and groups of submissions easy to organize, but others in my office cannot see these same tags. You need to make the tags visible to all administrative users at one school so we can work together.

  8. Allow students to communicate with the ETD Administrator within the ProQuest ETD Administrator

    Currently students need to direct questions regarding requested formatting changes outside the ProQuest ETD Administrator via an external email account. This requires the administrator to look in two different places (the PQ Administrator) and their email account to properly respond to formatting questions.
