  1. Option to filter harvested or digitised theses

    In PQTD Global our institution has both harvested electronically submitted theses and a large collection of theses that have been digitised by PQ from the former print collection. It would be good to be able to differentiate between the two on the Dashboard, to see the impact of the work we've done digitising the collection.

  3. Popular Subjects - Click to Title List

    As an administrator of a graduate school or library, I would like to be able to select the "subject bubble" in the popular subject visualization and have it take me to a list of the titles downloaded in that subject, broken down by frequency of downloads by title so that I can identify those top titles used in a subject area.

  4. Need more granularity (quarterly, monthly) on date selectors

    I'd like to be able to refine dates - retrieval period specifically, but publish dates as well. (J Weinberg)

  5. Put Published Date Range above Retrieval Period Range

    Intuitively, it makes sense to specify the range of years that ETDs were published before specifying the retrieval period. (J. Weinberg)

  7. Auto-scale Visualizations to fit screen

    At the moment, visualizations do not scale to fit the screen dimensions, and using "zoom" feature scales the frame, but not the image in the visualization. This means a user cannot adjust the screen to see the entire visualization at once.

  10. Platform does not reponse when click enter from keyboard after selected the filter details

    Once you have selected filters and click on enter button from the keyboard, the dashboard does not respond to it, ideally it should as any application works with you click on the enter button from keyboard(UI)

  15. Add "All Universities" Option to group options

    I would like the ability to unselect a comparison group on Retrievals by University so I can see retrievals from all universities on one page. In my opinion, I think this should even be the default.

  16. Create degree program filter or search

    Seeing dissertations by school or degree program is either non-existent or not apparent to me. Filtering by subject for something like a School of Agriculture could be across a lot of subjects. It would be nice to have a degree program filter or allow creation of subject groups for specific degree programs like agriculture so I could add animal science, vet science, agronomy, ag econ, ag ed, horticulture, soil possibly natural resources, wildlife management, etc (depending on the school) to a group once, save it, and not have to rerun that filter everytime.
