Combined content in reports: Compare Persons and Organisations in reports
Global search: Single search across all content types in Pure
New actions for content in list: Easier access to audit log and switch user
Better user interface for scheduled jobs: Admins have more control over integration
Improved management of research groups: Full control over related content
This new feature allows the user to compare any content in Pure by Person or per Organisational Unit within a single report. It provides for single-report management overviews, which is highly usefor for managers at all levels: Department, Institute, or Faculty levels, but also for central managers or research support offices.
An additional layout option for Persons and Organisations called 'Combined content' has been added to Pure's reporting layouts. It utilizes the global grouping concept to show multiple content-types in the same table in context of a certain person or organisation. The layout can produce output in either html or excel format.
The new global serach feature is the same as on Pureportal, but now available inside Pure itself: Serching acrss all content in Pure shows the results categorised by type: E.g. all matches within Grant applications, Grants, Projects, Publications, Research groups, External collborators, etc.
In Pure, users can performa actions on dsta items directly from lists, which is a popular option amoung editors of content at all levels. Ths new feature adds new options to what can be done directly from lists. From content list it is now possible to directly access the audit log for specific content. Furthermore, from the list of users you can, as an administrator, switch directly to the user in question. Both new features can be found by using the gear function.
"Scheduled jobs" are used to control synchronisations with institutions' other systems: The HR system, the Finance system, etc.
The purpose of this feature is to make scheduling of jobs easier and more accessible. All relevant information relating to a scheduled job is now integrated and shown on a single page. It is shown whether a job is currently running, its schedule, its configuration and log entries from previous runs, and so on. Scheduling has been simplified to show the most useful intervals, including daily, weekly, monthly and so forth. Jobs that are currently scheduled are now shown in a way that provides a better overview of the status of the job, while providing direct access to log entries from the latest run. Each job is now also provided with a title, description and a category, which combined give users a better understanding of what a specific job does.
The new feature makes it easier to create research groups and to associate the desired content from the group's members.
Bulk association are now available as part of Pure's Research Group management feature set. It works by associating all selected persons to the organisation in question. The start date and job title can be set for all persons chosen and/or set individually for each person. Each person's content can be individually selected/deselected for bulk-association with the organisation. Bulk association is found in the Organisation template on the Persons page when pressing the 'Add persons and their content' button.
Multiple submissions in REF2014: Enables creating more than 36 UoAs (UK)
New REF2014 roles: New "Super Editors" can now validate and confirm content
Research Groups in REF2014: Better handling of confidential content in Pure (UK)
Propose outputs for REF2014: Better usability on the propose output screen (UK)
This new feature facilitates the creation of more than 36 UoAs. Plese note, that this must be accepted by HEFCE.
The feature is only available to admnistrators, and must be enabled under "system settings" for REF2014, and is disabled by default. Open the editor for the UoA you want to make multiple submissions in and click the icon to the bottom right. You will now have an A and B version of the UoA. The A version has the same REF1a/c etc. as before, and the new B does not have anything associated. NOTE you must assign new roles two the new UoA. After you have created a duplicate UoA, you can afterwards delete it, and all associated REF1a/c is moved to the remaining UoA.
The new roles are SuperEditor of Staff REF2014, Editor of REF2 REF2014, and SuperEditor of REF2 REF2014.
The SuperEditor of Staff REF2014 has the same rights as Editor of Staff REF2014 but can also confirm content. The REF2 roles are very similar to the staff roles, where the editor can edit REF2, and check the summary page for their UoAs. The SuperEditor is an extended version of this which can also confirm content.
Jira: UKPURE-2572 and UKPURE-2598
The new feature makes it possible to add research groups on a unit of assessment.
An administrator or an REF administrator creates the research group on the UoA editor. Pure creates a letter code that is assigned to the research group, in that way that the first in the list is always called A, the second called B and so on, even when moving the research groups in the list. It is possible to configure whether Staff REF2014 can be assigned to more than one research group, on the UoA, by selecting the appropriate value in the Research Group field set.
To assign Research Group to a Staff REF2014, an administrator, an REF administrator, or and Staff REF2014 editor can do this on the Staff REF2014 editor. If multiple research groups is allowed on the specific UoA the staff is assigned to, then checkboxes will be presented and if multiple research group is not allowed, then radio buttons will be shown.
It is possible to select which research group, that a REF2 output should be submitted in, if the Staff REF is assigned to multiple research groups, by default the first research group is assigned to the REF2. When changing the research groups, or UoA on the Staff REF, the research group on the REF2 will also be changed.
When deleting a research group on the Unit of Assessment editor, the research group will be removed from any Staffs that is assigned to the research group, as well as any REF2.
The way academics can propose outputs for REF2014 has been redesigned. It is now possible to give more information when selecting outputs for REF2014. To see which information that is possible to submit, see the first screenshot. The academic can rank the output that is proposed. It is possible to choose between 1-4 and 'reserve' as ranking. It is only possible to have one output with rank 1-4 and multiple outputs can be ranked 'reserve'. If choosing a new output as 1st, then the other output with ranking 1st, will be changed to 2nd, and if there were one chosen as 2nd, then this will become 3rd and so forth. When an output that is proposed for REF is selected for review or selected for REF, then the rank of that output cannot be selected again, unless it is ranked as reserve. That is, if the output ranked as 1st, is selected for review or REF, then it is only posible to choose 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and reserve as ranking.
The 'propose outputs' tab on the personal overview page for an academic has also been redesigned, to give a better overview of what have been proposed for REF and what candidates there is. The overview is divided into two columns the left hand side, is all the candidate outputs that the academic have within the REF period. The right hand side is all the outputs that have been proposed for REF. It is possible to propose new outputs by clicking on either the 'Propose research output' button, or any of the items listed in the columns.
Pure 4.12.0 was released on 1 February 2012. The next feature release will be version 4.13.0, which is due on 1 May 2012.
