  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. View copyright fees paid per course

    Would like to do a custom search for a course or list of courses and have the "Current Course Copyright" value show in the grid.

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. Way for users to request a rescan within the system

    There is no way for a user to request a rescan within Ares and allow for staff to correct it within the system.

  16. 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?

  17. Allow instructors to search items across courses in web

    Students can search for items across all active courses. Instructors would like to search in this same way. Ideally it would show results for active courses and all courses (possibly below).

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
