CRS

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.

How can we improve CRS?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Reinstate global edit function

    Sometimes it is necessary to bulk-edit fields in a group of records - this was possible in the desktop version - please can we have this function back in the web version?

    • Proximity operators to work backwards as well as forewards

      Many of my saved searches contain near/next. In stand alone I get the same result regardless of which word or set of words comes first. This is also the case in other databases I use. Why has this been changed in CRSW to the operator only working forwards.
      I have approx. 130 saved searches

      • Clinicaltrials.gov features for CRS Web

        1. When adding records they should go into a new folder as if they are imported
        2. Need to be able to search by date received.
        3. Need to be able to bulk import and select a number of records and bulk import.
        4. Want to be able to customise the fields you see in the table view.
        5. Would like to be able to hide the records that I have already imported.
        6. Would like the exclude button back; and the option to hide these records.
        7. The trial registry name should auto populate when importing.

        • Save a search strategy as New

          If I edit a saved search strategy, I'd like to the option to save the changes as a new saved search. This would mean I could create a new strategy based on an existing saved search.

            This functionality already exists in a slightly different way. You can copy a saved search and then edit that search. Anne will email Naomi and add to digest. Plan to put a Save As option in the development plan, but this is low priority.

          • Send references/studies to the review number not the author

            I ran all my update searches before there was a network failure. I was able to import the search results into CRS and deduplicate but, to add the references to tracking, I needed the contact author. This was a new team and I couldn't remember the name. I could not log into Archie to find the name. By adding references to review number I could have exported those added to tracking and emailed them to the authors. (My correspondence is organised by review number). Email was not affected by the network failure.

            • Automatically import included studies of published intervention review into Central

              In order not to miss any relevant trials for publication in Central, I would find it helpful if all references of included studies in a Cochrane intervention review (based on RCTs or CCTs) could be automatically published to Central when the intervention review is published in the Cochrane Library.

              Right now, I have to go into my segment and explicitly mark each reference for publication in Central.

              • Excluded/deleted records

                At present records which are 'deleted' go into the 'excluded' pot. It would be useful to be able to sort/filter these records more by reason or context for deletion/exclusion. Records which for whatever reason get deleted can be a very useful source in helping to refine and validate search strategies.

                  Please would you add a feature to request removal of incorrect data from a field without replacing it with an alternative. There are 2 different references in CENTRAL with the same PMID but I can't see a way to remove the PMID from the non PubMed reference

                  • I want to be able to deduplicate references I import to CRS against a set previously sent to an author

                    As a TSC, my understanding is that currently my CRS imports are deduped against everything in my CRS segment. In order to make deduplication of update searches quicker and more efficient, I want to be able to deduplicate against a set of records sent previously to a team - not against my whole segment.

                    • Link the tracking information to the review not the author

                      I have updated the searches for a review but in tracking last years results are going to one author but today's are going to another author. Both Archie and Revman have author 1 as the contact author but CRS has someone else so the contact author does not appear in the "send to author" list.

                      • Change sender address

                        When sending results to authors from the CRS the sender address is "crshelp@metaxis.com". It would be better if the respective TSC´s address would be used, so that authors know whom to contact and who is actually sending the results.

                            I want to see all the references that are linked to the same study as the references in the result table. This is because if the reference is attached to the same study it is likely to have similar information as the reference found in the search.

                                        I want to store import settings by the filter used so that I don't need to keep changing the results process for each different filter I run.
