SubmissionArchive Viewer - Navigation Requests

Please consider the following enhancements to SubmissionArchive Viewer:

  • Expand All in addition to Expand Section - I realize that Expand All might impact performance, but having to expand each individual section gets really annoying. At the very least have the Expand Module option.
  • Filters to select what modules to show (i.e., allow user to only show M1, M3, and M4) when viewing the backbone.
  • When clicking on a file, there is a link to go back to the previous page. Please also add a link to go back to the Viewer (or better yet, allow navigation of the viewer on the left hand side of the page, view PDF in the middle, and have file info on the right). This is handy when you start clicking on a bunch of external links, and there's no quick way to get back to the viewer.
  • Add Historical Lifecycle of the Document when viewing the file in Mixed View so we can view the lifecycle of that particular document easily.
  • Add visual aid to show that the document that you are viewing isn't the most current. Within Vault, there is a link to take you to the current version if you're viewing a previous version. That should also happen when you're viewing a file (i.e. protocol) that has been replaced and no longer current in the xml backbone.

    Ron,

    Thanks for the enhancement suggestions. I'll respond to each one in order:

    • Indeed, Expand All was removed due to performance concerns. As we have made more improvements in our Viewer performance over the past couple of releases, it is something that we can re-consider now. Expand Module is also something that we will look at, either as an alternative or as an additional option.
    • We can consider a 'Module Filter' for a future release. 
    • We are exploring several navigation improvements for the Viewer in conjunction with viewing documents. 
    • I'm not sure I fully understand this one - what are you referring to with respect to 'Mixed View'? The historical lifecycle of the document is available within our viewer by clicking on the lifecycle icon. 
    • Good suggestion. We will definitely consider for a future release.

    Thanks Uri. 

    With regards to:

    • Add Historical Lifecycle of the Document when viewing the file in Mixed View so we can view the lifecycle of that particular document easily.

    The Historical Lifecycle is available within the viewer, but it goes away when you're just viewing the file.

     

    It would be great if that was still accessible via the mixed view so you can still get the lifecycle of the document without having to navigate back to the backbone TOC.
