Assign vs Reading List

Currently there really is no difference. With the reading lists they must be built then members, and books must be added. The assign books feature allows members to have access to titles faster, and allows sponsors the ability to not create individualized lists for members.

If it's assigned, will it automatically download into Read2Go or provide a notification to the student it's available?

Currently, I can add whatever to the reading list, but it doesn't give any sort of notification to the student that a book can be read.  I was hoping the "assign" option might be a bit more proactive?

Unfortunately with the way it currently sits they would not get any notification about the book. Though I can tell you that this has been something our engineering team has been working on, and we hope to see a release of this feature very shortly.

Not only that students/members will also be able to request books be added as well with this update.
