  3. Allow instructors to submit multiple requests at once

    How would sites like this to work? Would the instructor need to create an Excel file? Or would they paste a series of citations and staff would have to interpret them?

  4. Would like to organize items in folders versus tags on the web

    Sites who used to use Docutek miss the option of organizing items in folders. Tags don't seem to be as desirable.

  6. ADA compliant staff client

    Staff would like to be able to change the size/font without the screens being squished. Currently, increasing the font size or resolution on Windows makes certain buttons and menu options not visible.

  9. Workaround security issues with edge browser in hosted LMS environment

    The MS Edge browser has become particularly stringent in enforcing security matters. In particular, when using Canvas (hosted) with an in-domain Ares server through LTI Edge will sometimes refuse to display the Ares interface. This has been confirmed while working with Angela. The workaround to move the Ares server is somewhat undesirable, as is reminding users to use a different browser.

  10. Allow for sorting by Article Title instead of Journal Title in the web

    Currently, Article Title is appended to the Journal Title field for displaying in the web, making it impossible to sort on instead of Journal Title.

  11. Convert Ares to use UTC time

    This would allow the times to display correctly for each site's time zone regardless of where the SQL server is hosted.

  12. Support for addons within the Ares item forms

    This came up because sites want certain fields like ItemInfo2 to be a dropdown. If they make a whole new addon form/tab it's not easy to see, but we think they could have a section of the request form.

  13. Create a secure file upload method for client (using web platform)

    Currently the client uses FTP and it should use another method to increase the security and not rely on FTP protocols.

  14. Change item deletion process to be safer and allow some form of undelete/recovery.

    If a staff user deletes an item, it would be good to have that delete "delayed" until the end of the day in case it needs to be recovered immediately.

  15. Show which staff member added a user note

    Have an "added by" field for user notes like there is for item notes.

  17. Group items by title for hard copies to shorten list for web users

    On the course info page, if a title has multiple physical copies available on physical reserves, that list of the title is cumbersome. If they could automatically group by the title, and expand to show each ItemID, that would make the list easier to navigate.

    Reordering of items that is possible by instructors would have to take this into account.

  18. Allow LTI to create course in Ares if a student clicks on it first

    LTI will create the course if an instructor clicks on the link but if a student clicks on the link it says "course not available - contact your instructor"

  19. Add call number to fields on the web used for cloning

    A site would like to add the call number field to the items tables on the web that are used for cloning/importing items into courses. The staff feel that the call number is an essential piece of info for faculty. We are not able to add this column in, or modify the tables at all, without breaking the functionality of the checkboxes.

  20. Staff would like to have scanned items automatically moved to the web

    Instead of having staff open the form in the staff client to process the items, they would like a utility to scan that folder and automatically move them.

    This could be an issue if sites are scanning ILLiad and Ares items to the same folder.
