Talis Product and Services Update - November 2019

Welcome to our new look Product & Services Update, we hope you enjoy the updated design! It’s been another busy month, with the implementation of our Automatic Profile Creation feature and the continued full rollout of New List Edit to more Universities. Details of these and more are included in this month's newsletter.

This month’s Product Update webinar reported on Automatic Profile Creation, as well as summarising our current development priorities. The next one will take place in January, we will announce the date via our Service Announcements and events page.

New List Edit - Rollout Update

With 48 Universities now using the New List Edit as default, and several more scheduled to switch shortly, we will soon have over half of all Talis Aspire users making use of the updated interface. More additional features are planned soon and our documentation continues to grow via this article, so if you’re considering a switch soon then please raise a support ticket.

Automatic Profile Creation

Talis Aspire Reading Lists now supports the automatic creation of user profiles when a user logs in for the first time, and the continued update of that profile if changes to names and email addresses are made in university identity management systems. More information about this feature is available in this support article. If you would like to enable automatic profiles for your tenancy, please raise a support ticket.


What has been released this month?

Following user feedback, we have added filters as a mandatory requirement to all bulk actions. If no filters are set you will be presented with a warning message and the job will not run. Further details are in our updated support article.
