Archie

Please note that we are only expecting to make a few improvements to Archie for the moment. Our resources need to be focussed on advancing other critical projects, such as RevMan. Your suggestions are still very welcome and will be collected, but they are not likely to be implemented in the immediate future.

Tell us what you need.
Start with a short label and then a fuller description. If you can, try to include a ‘user story’ as the first line of the description. A user story is about clearly telling is who you are, what you want and why you need it.
Example: “As an author, I want to edit my review on my tablet, so I can finish it faster.”

How can we improve Archie?

  1. Separate Rejected titles from Vacant Titles

    As an ME I want to clearly separate rejected titles from vacant titles, so author teams do not contact me in vain.

    In the Vacant Titles folder, titles are either filed under Active or Inactive. Review authors often contact to ask if they can take on one of the titles listed under Inactive. This is misleading because in some cases the rejected titles are listed under this heading.

    Possible changes: either change the heading from Inactive to Rejected titles, or add a new status (and heading) for Rejected titles?

    It will help to keep a list of rejected titles and…

      Having consulted with ME Support on CRGs’ needs for storing and sharing information on Vacant titles, is clear that we need to clearly flag Rejected titles separately inside Archie.

      Work on this may be impacted by/impact the work on the central list of Priority Review.

      Could consider including this idea: http://ideas.cochrane.org/forums/252906-archie/suggestions/6390875--proposed-title-heading-in-archie-that-is-not-pub

    • Add title option 'Emeritus Professor'

      Could you consider adding the title of 'Emeritus Professor' to the current pick list?

      • Onscreen help with login problems

        As a user having problems logging in, I want helpful suggestions to appear straight away, so that I don't have to spend time asking for help.

        Once a user has failed to login once, text explaining the most common problems should automatically appear.

        • To change the Archie Folder heading Withdrawn to Unavailable

          Suggested in MEs meeting in 2013 to change the Archie Folder heading Withdrawn to Unavailable. This will hopefully prevent authors asking to take over Withdrawn reviews if they are listed under the heading Unavailable.

          • Easy way to identify reviews with unsigned Conflict of interest forms

            For example, it could be an icon or a report.

              UXG agreed on 15 April.

              Will be implemented so it is easy to see when a reveiw in Editorial phase is missing COI forms. Will also consider the commnent that the forms should be sent/required as part of submitting for editorial approval.

            • Management of email lists from Archie

              As a Cochrane contributor I want to easily manage all my email list subscriptions on a single page, so I can get the information I need and want.

              As group administrator I want the group 's email list to be automatically updated based on Archie membership, so I don't have to do this in two places.

                UXG agreement we should do this. Moving into specification phase. Do add your comments on how this should work for you.

              • Check for overlap when a Vacant title is changed to Registered title

                When the vacant title is created, Archie checks for overlapping titles. However, when the Vacant title becomes a Registered title, there is no check for overlap. Given that a vacant title can sit in Archie for years before it is registered, it is important that a further check for overlapping titles in Archie is conducted at the Registration stage as well.

                • Notify workflow manager when comments are provided with task

                  If a person submits comments when completing a task, notification should be sent to the workflow manager. IMS Team note: Not sure this is required. The manager will likely be assigned the next task that involves checking the comments.

                    UXG decision: move to ‘Planned’, to be scheduled for implementation.

                    In consultation w ME Support agreed that best solution is new notification option that includes the comments, and lists additional attachments. Notification to be sent as long as either is present.
