one-click update metadata for a zotero object
I use zotero to manage a library of journal articles. These articles are often first published electronically, and don't get page numbers, etc., until they are published in print. I often find myself making one zotero item when the article is published online, then when the print info is available, making another zotero item, attaching a link to the pdf, putting in new html tags to italicize things correctly, adding a journal abbreviation if it is not already there, mergeing duplicates, etc. I don't think that there is a way to have zotero update the metadata for an item automatically. It seems like it would be pretty easy to implement a one-click way that you could ask zotero to retrieve any changes to the metadata associated with a certain article, similar to the functionality that lets you create a new object by doi or pmid. It would be great if it could do this in such a way that it would not replace all fields, just empty ones, so things like html tags for italics in titles and user-added info like journal abbreviations wouldn't need to be entered manually again.
