Gaining Editing Rights

How to get editing rights

First please check whether or not you already have editing rights to Resource Lists for the modules that you are teaching. To do this you can search for the module code/title on Talis Aspire Resource List Software and check you are logged in (should say your name in the dark green navigation bar near the top of the page). If you can see an Edit button on the right hand side of the page (see screenshot below) then you are able to edit the list.

Edit button, View, My Lists

If you can't see an Edit button this means you don't yet have editing rights, please email the Academic Engagement Team to get access. You will be sent an invite email (from No-Reply- TalisAspire) and need to accept the invite by clicking on the second link in the email in order for the Edit button to appear. Please note that sometimes these emails go into your Junk Mail.

NB: When you accept a List publisher invitation for the first time, the system will ask you to fill in your profile. This only takes a moment. Please leave your profile set to public, as this will enable students to search for resource lists using your name, if they wish to.
