      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                • Uploading PDFs

                  Good if you can develop a facility to upload PDF full-texts direct from the source like the way EndNote and Mendeley do, Or
                  Good if you can develop a facility to upload references from EndNote/Mendeley along with the PDF full-texts when it is available with the citation.

                    • Cleaner Export to CSV

                      Better export to csv for easier analysis. As it is right now, filtering is difficult because labels get lumped in with exclusion decisions, and there's lots of cleanup in excel. Just pipe those to different columns and we'd be golden.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Link article DOI

                            PubMed records often include DOI field. Linking to the article via DOI resolver would speed up full text assessment where needed.

                                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…

                                  • Be able to search articles that DON'T contain some keywords.

                                    Ex: be able to see all articles that don't contain the words "surgery", "surgeries", "surgeon", "surgeons", "surgical", etc.

                                    It would be very helpful in excluding some articles.

                                      • Backup and restore review file to and from local computer

                                        A feature to download a backup file of the running review to local computer, which contain all the decisions made till now and restore it if any thing goes wrong with the main online file. This will give extra piece of mind when reviewing a big list of documents (eg. more than a 1000 articles)

                                        • 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

                                            Dear Rayyan Users,

                                            The mobile app syncs all decisions/labels done on articles to the web version. When you download a review on your mobile device, it is downloaded along with its decisions/labels. If you further make new decisions/labels on the web version, they won’t be visible on the mobile app unless you “Clear” the review and download it again.Clearing a review from your mobile app means removing its content from your mobile device, like the first time you installed the app.
                                            It never touches the review on your online webpage.
                                            To clear a downloaded review, just swipe it to the left.We did that as a first shot mobile app with performance in mind. So rest assured all your work is already saved on Rayyan, you only need to “Clear” it and download it again.

                                            Best,
                                            -Admin
