      • keep all original bibliographic data

        keep all original bibliographic data!

        When uploading references and subsequently downloading these references some information is lost. eg the following fields are empty after downloading from rayyan. DOI, name of database, database provider, keywords, date field. These field are at times necessary for further processing so would it be possible to leave the original reference intact when exporting back to reference software.

        • Transition from title/abstract to full-text screen

          Allow results to be hidden after title/abstract stage so team can move to full-text without having to create a new project.

          • Sort by first author

            Sort by first author
            One big improvement with Rayyan would be if you could choose how you would like to sort your abstract. Today you can sort your abstract by rating, which is great. But it would be perfect if it also was possible to sort by:

            • First author (even if it could happen that a study have multiple first authors, you sort by the first name)

            • By year (If you would like to look at fresh publications, you choose: 2016)

            • Extension of items for 'Inclusion decisions'

              Currently, 'Inclusion decisions' conatin the items 'Undecided', 'Included' and 'Excluded'.
              From a systematic reviewer's point of view it would be great to have the additional item 'Potentially relevant' meaning publications which need to be checked as full text. This would differ these publications from 'Undecided' which should refer to 'Awaiting classification' or something similar.
              Also, a 'First check exclusion' button would be great (both as a button and an additional item for 'Inclusion decisions') for abstracts which clearly do not address the research question and can be quickly eliminated.

              • Have a 'Primary Researcher' override option for inclusion/exclusion decisions

                Most reviews will have a primary researcher that may review all title/abstract results, with collaborators doing a percentage for inclusion validity/reliability. It is likely there will be some conflict, and there needs to be a 'resolution' or 'override' function available to the primary researcher. These conflicting results still need to be resolved, but at the moment they are automatically excluded.

                • ¿Which reviewer provided which exclusion reason?

                  Please add a feature to distinguish which reviewer provided which exclusion reason. This should also be stored in the export files like the decisions are stored for each reviewer.

                  • Speeding up the selection

                    Great software that makes systematic review easy.

                    After hitting "I" or "E" to include or exclude a paper respectively, it would be good to have the selection move automatically onto the next paper.

                    In the mobile app, it would be useful to just show the title and allow to include/exclude articles instead of seeing the abstract.

                    • Repeated downloading problem

                      Having an issue when connected to WiFi/network I get a message saying “New include/exclude decisions were created outside the app. The screen will now refresh to fetch these updates.” Once I hit “okay” my article list gets deleted and has to be re-downloaded. The only way I’ve found to prevent this is working offline while in the app. I’m on iPhone, iOS 11.1

                      • Kstart you back from where you left off

                        One essential featire that is need for this app is to have the opportunity to remember our screening position (that is which article/record number) We let reviewed and start us from there. Every time I open the app, it takes me to the beginning of the articles to be sxreenes is 1/xxx and I have to scroll to number 100,200, etc from there. That is so so so inefficient. Please improve the app to enable us continue fro. Where we left off. As is, it makes things very tedious.

                              • Importing trials register records (URL field)

                                I work for a Cochrane Review Group. We usually deliver search results to our authors via EndNote. I use to build one EndNote Library in which I import results from bibliographic databases (mostly journal citations, but sometimes also disserations) as well as records from trials registers, so our authors can screen everything in one place.

                                When I now import this EndNote-Library into Rayyan, I notice that Rayyan can only deal with standard journal references (author, title, abstract, source, year) and cannot cope with populated EndNote fields beyond those mentioned. Especially URL or Accession number (PubMed ID) are vital for identifying…
