  1. Option to multi-select courses and open them from search results

    You can multi-select items and open them all. Would like the same functionality with courses.

  2. Allow staff to decide if copyright information clones with request

    If there is some sort of perpetual copyright license (the World Health Organization says their stuff can be used forever), it is helpful to keep that data when cloning a request.

  3. Tracking entries reflect more accurately if the system or staff user initiated that status change

    In some cases moving an item to one status immediately moves it to the next applicable status. That tracking entry has the staff username versus a "system" username.

  6. Allow ItemInfo fields to work on webpages with CustomDropDown

    Allow CustomDropDown and the optional ItemInfo fields, 1-5, to work on webpages so we can have custom requirements.

  7. Add a status line to the Ares main menu to be able to display error messages

    If a user is returned to the main menu because of an error, there is no way to explain why.

  9. 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.

  12. Allow for more date parameters for reports

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

  14. 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.

  17. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
