Automatic update with scopus
ORCID is a good website to use in your signature for you scientific profile. but as Scopus database is automatic update (inspite of the error that many times you need to request your duplicate Ids, but still scopus is 90% accurate).
Still, it is a good idea to automatic update with scopus ID, once it is authorized. I don't think, one should regularly come to ORCID to do so.
same is with the ResearcherID. But researcherID keeps a track for citations database and ORCID should also do the same, may be in a better way, if they are competitor. best wishes
Thanks for the suggestion. We are considering a model that will let ORCID Members automatically add works to your record. As part of this consideration we’re talking with members who want to add works and looking at ways we can make sure that only works by you are added to your ORCID record. We want ORCID records to as close to 100% accurate as possible so we need to progress carefully. I’ll update this idea once any decisions around this have been made.

I'm with Gary. Automatic updates would be very convenient. However, in my opinion the strongest point of the whole ORCID idea is that all entries are actually made by the author himself or an authorized person. Abandoning this policy would make ORCID mostly pointless.
Therefore having the record updated automatically _after_ a confirmation by the author seems to be the most accurate and convenient way.

Yes, keeping the ORCID records accurate is key. How about getting a notification each time Scopus wants to add a new item with a click-to-approve link?
