  1. Option to store multiple documents for a single item

    This keeps the site from having to manually combine them into a new single document for storage with the item.

  2. prevent instructor from making items available for dates outside the semester dates

    The student won't be able to see the item and the staff client forces staff to "correct" the dates anyways.

  4. Allow routing rules to add a flag to an item but leave it in the same status

    Allow routing rules to place a flag on an item while keeping it in the same queue. Right now if you try to do that, it routes the item into a queue with the name of the flag instead of actually adding a flag and leaving it in the same status.

  8. Prompt instructors for Date Needed by when importing/cloning requests

    The Date Needed By field provides important data for managing workflow and assessing quality of service provided by Reserves staff (i.e., what percentage of requests are filled by this date). We require this field when instructors submit new requests and would like to also require (or at least prompt for it) when importing requests from a prior course. Currently the Date Needed By from prior semesters clone, which isn't useful for managing workflow or for assessing service.

  10. When importing items from another course, retain the custom sort order

    If you clone a course, it retains the sort order. But when a new course is created and then you try to import items from a previous course via the web, it loses the custom order.

  12. Show item usage count from custom search

    Make it a part of the custom search but not in every grid result in the client.

    Sites seem to want this for reporting purposes versus processing.

  15. Allow sorting of tags in something other than alphabetical

    Several sites have requested this option but their examples are always Week 10 coming before Week 2 in the list. Are there other examples for needing to customize the order or is it only for the weeks?

  16. Show usage count in grid of items on clone course form

    When viewing items in a course to decide which ones to clone to a new course, seeing the item usage is helpful.
