This article covers the frequently asked questions for the Reviews functionality of Talis Aspire Reading Lists (TARL).
Frequently asked questions
Q - Can we export a Review to process outside of Talis Aspire?
A - In Reviews 1.0 you can export the review as a CSV file.
UPDATED! In Reviews 2.0 you are now able to export a CSV file from the individual list view.
Q - Can we report on Review outcomes used across all active Reviews?
A - Talis Aspire Reviews is designed as a workflow for processing a reading list as a whole, all the way through to completion. For this reason a report on review outcomes for individual items is not currently available. We do have a backlogged idea on the Ideas Forum relating to this improvement - http://ideas.talis.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-reading-lists/suggestions/1008051-library-review-report-review-outcomes.
Q - If a reading list has an active review, can it still be edited?
A - Yes, you can continue to edit the reading list while the review is being processed. When a reviewer next enters the review, it will notify them that the review is being update with recent changes.
Q - How do I add staff to the Assignee list in Reviews?
A - The Assignee list is made up of users with the Acquisitions role in TARL. To add names to this list you will need to invite them to this role. Once they have accepted the role their name will be available from the Assignee list.
