Vireo 3.0 - What's New

Vireo 3.0 is major feature upgrade to Vireo. It builds upon the past success of 2.0 and the Java Play Framework to enable new features. Here are some highlights

New Fields:

  • ORCID
  • ProQuest Embargoes

New Features:

  • Revised Needs Corrections workflow: Vireo 3 includes a more intuitive student workflow for submitting corrected manuscripts, including better validations to minimize student errors.
  • Email: Vireo 3 adds the ability to set up rules for sending automated emails to configurable groups of stakeholders.
  • Reporting and Exports: Vireo 3 allows administrative users to create custom, exportable Excel reports by using saved filters and columns. It also includes the addition of the Action Log to a file export package.
  • Multiple submissions: Vireo 3 overhauls the functionality for allowing multiple submissions by a single student. Specifically, it adds more sophisticated validations to prevent students from creating a new submission for the same degree, while allowing legitimate multiple submissions (for different degrees) by the same student.
  • Embargoes: Vireo 3 adds a separate, optional embargo period for submissions going to ProQuest.
  • Custom Action Checklist: In Vireo 3, administrative users have the ability to filter an ETD list by individual Custom Actions. Additionally, Vireo 3 can be configured to display certain Checklist items in the student view.

New Settings:

  • Email "From" and "ReplyTo" are now in administrative settings instead of application.conf
  • Deposit locations can now be configured to have a timeout (defaulted to 60 seconds, used to be 10 seconds) for the SWORD client when depositing large items into DSpace
  • Email Workflow Rules
  • Administrative Groups
  • Separate "Default" and "ProQuest" embargoes

Other New Features:

  • An ADA-compliant student submission interface
  • Several bug fixes
