Thank you for the suggestion, Tom. You can accomplish this today by adding a note in the "Note to ProQuest" order info field.
However, I recognize that the process could be improved. I will bring this up with the product team.
Thank you for the suggestion Leon.
Are you using order info templates today? I believe templates could mostly address this request now.
Thank you for your suggestion. After you conduct a search, click on the "Click to Apply Filter". In the first dropdown, select the "DRM-Free Availability" option. In the second dropdown, click the "Equals" option. In the third input field type "True" then click the "Apply Filter(s) Now" button.
Thank you for the suggestion. Would you need to see the date that it was added or do you only need to sort the list by date added?
Better organized title data is a part of the title browse page redesign which will get implemented in later this year.
Thank you for this suggestion. The OASIS product team is currently exploring better ways to display title information.
Here is a mock-up depicting a direction we're considering: https://proquest.invisionapp.com/d/main/#/console/16209880/336113582/preview
Would this new layout address your request or do you need additional or different forms of title information?
With the recent release of the new checkout experience, we are excited to announce that we will now begin scoping out and implementing a new search browsing experience. This new experience will make much better use of screen real estate and allow you to browse titles in a much more user-friendly manner. We have designed and tested the new concept and received lots of positive feedback from our users.
This will be a large project and will likely take 5+ months to build. I will keep you posted as we reach milestones.
This is a topic the product team has discussed on a regular basis so I'm glad you brought it up here!
I agree that the screen can sometimes get crowded and limit the total number of titles you can see at once. Do you have an example of a similar product where the vertical layout has worked well for you? Would you be open to other layout approaches beyond the vertical layout?
Thank you for this suggestion. Would you like this feature to automatically apply to quick searches as well?
OASIS does have a "saved search" option near the bottom of the advanced search page which might partially relieve your troubles. The workflow goes as follows:
1. Enter your desired search criteria on the Advanced Search page (binding, language, currency, etc...)
2. Scroll to the bottom of the page, enter a name for the new saved search, then hit "Save"
3. The next time you navigate to the advanced search page, scroll to the bottom of the page and choose your saved search from the dropdown. Whatever search criteria you entered when creating the search criteria will be automatically added to the page.
I realize this only partially addresses your idea but it might prevent the need for you to re-enter the same search information over and over again during each new search.
Great idea! Thank you for letting us know.
Are you required to have the website open somewhere in your browser to hear this alert sound? Do you have to be on a specific page to hear it or can you be on any page inside Dawson's?
