I suggest you ...

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. improve search function to identify people

    when typing in a name in the search for people function one gets a list of thousands of people, not even completely alphabetised. Problem is compounded by the fact that in specifying the search term no distinction can be made between first name and surname, and that no further info can be specified, such as the university where a person is l ocated.

      Hello Van der Eijk,

      we are currently working on improving the search functionality in OAE and will take your suggestion into account – at the moment the work is focused on content search but we will also try look into user search. Unfortunately I can’t give you a timeline at this point but I’ll update this ticket as work progresses.

      Thanks,

      Salla Karppinen
      OAE

    • add the facility to create folders within folders

      At the moment this doesn't seem to be possible but would be useful

      • Group Join Request option for visible groups

        Visible groups should have the option of sending a group join request to the group manager. This request should be visible in activity feed and email notifications of all managers of the group.

        • Sorting Search Results

          Search results should be sorted by relevance by default, and alternate options to sort them by tenancy, date added etc. should be present.
