Document Management System - Titles too long for display space
Problem: In the DMS, some of our documents and reports have titles which are too long for the space so are truncated. Some of our reports we have lots with the same start so we have a dozen which all start "Bikeability bookings by day report block ##" which are truncated to "Bikeability bookings by day..." making it hard for us to find the correct report we need.
At the moment you have to select and then you can see the full title in the box that comes up on the right hand side, sometimes this means scrolling up if the report is too far down the webpage and then because the one you've selected isn't highlighted in the list you have to remember how many down you are.
Proposed solution: Have a mouseover popup which displays the full title of the report/document when you hover the mouse cursor over it
Proposed solution: Have long titles wrap text onto multiple lines rather than truncate
Proposed solution: Have the box that pops up float on the page and/or highlight the selected report/document
Mouseover popup would be preferable out of these.
