  1. Allow sites to remove edit option from left column for instructor web

    There is a left most column that says view, download, edit. That column is not customizable and some sites don't allow instructors to edit the items.

  3. Specify the base URL for permanent links with a customization key

    This can be helpful for sites with more than one authentication method.

  4. Allow for more date parameters for reports

    Most sites would like reports by semester or year and not necessarily by month.

  6. Enhance course cross-listing to include more course info and ExternalCourseIDs

    Currently, course cross listing only shows a name and is accessible by students searching for that cross listed course number/name and finding it under the other name. It's not clear to the student that both courses are the same.

  7. Filter reports by processing unit

    Do you also want to separate stats by pick up location or only the processing location?

  8. Report showing which staff have processed which items

    Check the tracking to see which staff usernames touched it. Do they need to know how long that staff person took?

  10. Make Static Alerts on the GLogon pages editable from within the client.

    GLogon.html and GLogon2.html have spaces available for including static alerts that can be seen without logging in. Instead of editing the html of those pages to change those static alerts, it would be nice if it were editable in the client interface.

  11. Remove tabindex=0 on elements that do not need focus

    the tabindex=0 should be removed from any elements that do not explicitly need to be focusable via tab. Screen readers users will be able to reach the text regardless whether it is in the tab order or not. It'll likely just confuse keyboard users.

  13. Make OpenURL importing smarter regarding possible blank values

    If an OpenURL string contains a field with a blank value, skip that field and use one of the later ones in the string that does contain a value.

  14. Check out feature for instructor owned items

    Currently, the majority of our physical reserves are faculty copies that we have to add as temporary items to our ILS. This causes all manner of problems for our catalogers and for ILL (as we get a number of requests for these items). However, if Ares had a system very similar to the one in ILLiad that allows us to check in items from other libraries, I feel this would solve that problem. In ILLiad, we check a book from a lending library in using the ILL number, and a slip prints out with our TN, allowing us to scan…

  16. Prevent students from being able to view an instructor form via a direct link

    If an instructor sends the link to the instructor view of an item to a student, it's not clear why it's not working.

  19. Would like students to see all items listed, regardless of status
