  1. Accessed when

    When adding new references. In the bibliography, the "accessed" date in the citation is wrong. It doesn't show the correct date.
    It would be nice, if it showed todays date.

    Thank you for your comment. We are currently looking into ensuring that the date does not change no matter which browser or platform you are using. If the problem reoccurs we will be happy to support you again. Thank you for your patience in the meantime whilst we are looking to resolve this.

  2. Doesn't work well

    Doesn't work well

    - I try to upload references with the Chrome add-on: doesn't work well. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    - I try using the desktop app search tool: doesn't work well. It doesn't add the references even if it says it has done it.

    - I try manually uploading new references in the desktop app: it doesn't work well. It doesn't sync with the web.

    - I try manually uploading new references in the web: it doesn't work well. It doesn't sync with the desktop app.

    It's driving me crazy....

  3. Uploading folders in specific folders on the app

    Thanking for coming up with this open source reference management software. I have used Mendely and EndNote, but I am switching to this one. I have realized that I can not import folders in the specific folder in the app. Once I import the articles goes to all publications, so if I am working with different projects it becomes difficult. Also I can't import a folder containing sub folders at once, I have to import the subfolders separately. Otherwise I like the app. Thanks.

  4. Improve metadata collection from imported citations

    Even if I imprt the publicatoin from pubmed the metadata like volume, pages, year don't get automatically improted. This need to be fixed urgently otherwise it will cost us so much time to do it again.

  5. Touch Screen Compatible Highlighter

    Allow the highlighter to be used with a finger or stylus on a touch screen, instead of having to use a mouse.

  6. Folder Flexibility

    It would be nice if it would be possible to move the folders of the Library and to achieve more flexibility. So new projects (folder) may be also listed above and not as the lowest folder

  7. Edit publications in Groups

    Currently, it is not possible, to edit a publication in a group. Maybe, because it is just linked to the main entry. But the problem is that the title formatting (i. e. species names in italics) is lost. Also, if I click on the group's entry, the formatting gets also lost in the main entry. That's a bug, i think.

  8. Zotero importer ignores italic text

    I switch over to colwiz because it supports Google Docs. After importing my library from Zotero, all text marked in italics (i. e. species names in titles) disappeared. Now I have to edit all publications and retype the html tag for italics (<i>E. coli</i>). That's quite a lot of work.
    It would be better to import this information as well.

  9. Subgroup in library

    I think it would be nice if you include the option to have subgroups in the individual groups.

  11. Google docs plugin "insert citation" improvements

    Currently the search function of the insert citation only works on titles. It would be a vast improvement if it allowed searching for author etc.

  14. android app

    The choices in the app are a little weak.
    I would like to add an folder for recently added and recently read.

    But I love that I can use Adobe pdf Reader -- do not change that!

  15. Crucial

    1- It will be a marvellous app/programme/website, if you can integrate Colwiz with Jabref (since Jabref is also written in Java) and/or Kbibtex. Extracting citations in Bibtex form will be much easier than now.

    2- It is interesting not to see New Hart's (Oxford) style in a website/app prepared by researchers of Oxford University. It will be very kind of you if you can add it to the options.

    3- Finally but momentous, it will be amazing if you can make google scholar to recognize -just and only- the articles shared to all world in Colwiz.

  17. Enhancing PDF saving

    When saving a PDF on a drive, automatic naming based on cilation data will be great e.g. FirstName_date_title.pdf

    Saving all the PDF from a folder at the same time will also be great - We may need to make a backup or to share a folder content.

  19. Folder management

    Hello! I'm new to colwiz but it is instantly loveable, easy and great to use. Yet, I have two short suggestions for the android app:

    1. Could you allow the app to delete articles, create folders and move them between them?
    2. Could you add support for the smart folders in the app?

    Thanks I lot, I appreciate your work and help

  20. Highlight and androud

    I just love this software. There only two things I'm not really pleased with. First I would like to highlight words and sentences instead of just rectangles. Secondly the reader should also be available on the Android version. This would really make a deference.
