I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Ditch the pre-populated key words for include and exclude.

    The highlighted key words section is really useful, but different reviews will have different inclusion and exclusion criteria so the key words will be different. I just end up deleting them and adding my own, which just takes time. Great programme though.

              • 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

                  • 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.

                      • Store information about each imported file (source, query string etc)

                        I'd like to keep information about the different searches behind each file that I import into Rayyan.

                        Right now, Rayyan displays only the file name. It would be nice to have an information screen for each of those files. There you could write a database name, a search string, date of search etc.

                        It would go some way towards making Rayyan more complete.

                        Feature specification:

                        User story: As a user, I would like to store and review information about each of the imported files in a review.

                        Requirements:

                        1. On the "review screen", e.g. https://rayyan.qcri.org/reviews/19984 , under "Search methods", when…

                              • Boolean search

                                I’ve noticed that I can only search for a single keyword - if I put two words in together nothing comes up (online and app). Am I searching incorrectly or is there a better way to do this? It would be fantastic to have a good search feature that allows Boolean search in here

                                • Start 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.

                                    As well as being able to sort by date, title and rating, being able to sort by PDF upload status (presence or absence) would help speed up the full text search and upload process.
                                    Thank you for the keyboard shortcut for 'PDF upload'!

                                        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.
