Prioritized list of fixes/enhancements for the “Portal”

Based on our usability studies and conference call from the other day I have created a (more or less) prioritized list of fixes/enhancements to be applied to the “Portal”:

  • add a a note to the email dialog box denoting how the from field is mandatory and requires an email address
  • create a directory of institutions, and from search results hyperlink institutions’ names to the directory
  • update the “Portal” look & feel (theme) so it is based on the “blueprint” theme
  • turn off the “Suggested Topics” feature
  • fix the author searches so when author names are clicked the content displays correctly
  • make the login links float to the right instead of the left
  • change the red text — such as the text in the search box — to black
  • change the login label to read “Login / Create account”

On my mark. Get set. Go.
