favorite tools and favorite lectures should be coordinated

We have 2 forms of favorite tools and favorite content items. Right now they are separate. I think there should be joint tag where a user can declare a tool as favorite and it should show up in the ‘Favorite” list in “My Tools” as well as the favorite list in the favorite module.

    Treating tools differently seems consistent with nanoHUB use. I do not see a value to the users with blurring the line. I’m open to a counterargument.

      It is plain usability – people do not even know about the ability to select favorite tools. Also why not declare a favorite tool right in the tool synopsis – why do we have to go to myhub and then into a subpanel and then scroll down and find the tool to set it as a favorite?

      I bet if we did a survey on how many people actually have set a “favorite” tool, we find that there will be few.

    I see “favorites” list that appears under my members page as a seperate list from my tools. My tools is an operational list, favorites is a published list of favorites.
