  1. Allow customization of which OCLC subfields populate requests

    OCLC has recently rolled out URIs in their various author/creator fields (100/700/etc.), which is causing many author names to be pulled into ILLiad with long website addresses that clutter our paperwork. It would be helpful if we could choose which subfields from OCLC records we wanted to import, so that we could suppress subfield 1 in the author field. Ideally, this would work both for the "Copy Info" button and for the mechanism that populates the OCLC request form, so that we could automatically avoid sending the URIs out to our lending partners as well.

  2. Add confirmation message before printing slips

    When clicking Print Stacks Search Items, there should be an "are you sure" message BEFORE requests route to In Stacks Searching so there's a chance to undo or reconsider before requests move.

  3. Article Delivery notices: automated reminder notices

    It would improve service to be able to send automated reminder notices to patrons a week or so before electronic articles reach the 30-day limit and will be purged from the server. We remind them to download articles, but a second notice would be helpful, either to all patrons or maybe to those whose request history does not show "PDF viewed."

  4. Add better logout handling for PortalGuard (and possibly Azure AD) for the SAML module

    Add better logout handling for PortalGuard (and possibly Azure AD) for the SAML module. Some IdPs require a SAML Logout message to be encoded as a query parameter in order for a request to their logout URL to actually be processed.

  5. Wrap text for "MatchString" when editing Routing Rules in Customization Manager

    When editing Routing Rules in Customization manager there's no text wrap for the MatchString field, which makes it hard to edit lengthier/more complex routing rules.
    Right now the options are to either scroll through the long string to read it all (or find the place you need to edit), or copy the existing rule, paste it in a text editor, edit, and then paste it back into the Customization Manager.
    It would be nice if you could see the rule/MatchString in its entirety and edit it without having to scroll through the string or leaving the application to use a…

  6. Make OCLC Local Holdings visible from ILLiad

    When ordering items via OCLC from the Awaiting Request Processing queue, there are many times (especially with Internet Resource format type) where a list of symbols is showing, but no coverage information at all. It appears you can log into WorldShare's online interface directly and expose the holdings information there. Please make this info. visible in ILLiad so we don't have to leave the program or make faulty lender symbol strings. This is really not efficient and leads to wasted time.

    Expand the group maintenance functionality to include settings that persist for specific groups such as if renewals are permitted and the length of renewals for specific groups. One group we are a part of has expanded renewals to 17 weeks - we want this for that group but not for everyone so it would be nice to be able to customize more than just initial loan length based upon the borrowing library's group.

  9. Create a new status for 'PDF Viewed' to work in conjunction with the current TransactionStatus 'Delivered to Web'

    We are trying to improve communication with patrons regarding electronic delivery of articles, especially when they have many items displayed in the Electronically Received Articles section of the web interface. We want users to know at a glance - which articles are available AND whether they have already been viewed. Including the date to be deleted (e.g. via the 'Expires' tag) would also be helpful, but my immediate request is to make information from the History table ('PDF Viewed') available for display. An example of what I am requesting can be seen in the Checked Out Items section. The display…

  11. Add ability to "pin" or "favorite" staff Note in ILLiad request

    In cases where staff have the need to re-use the text of a staff note in an ILLiad request, it would be helpful to enable functionality to "pin" or "favorite" a specific note at the top of that day's listing of notes so as to get there in a single click, without having to scroll down to it (or to have to type in the beginning text for that needed note in the Recent Notes field, in order to auto-suggest).

  12. Allow multiple addons to register for the same processing step (system event)

    Currently only one addon is able to register for a given processing step (i.e., system event: https://atlas-sys.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ILLiadAddons/pages/3149423/ILLiad+Addon+System+Events ), thus only one can be active at a time and still work successfully. It would be helpful if multiple addons could register in succession for a single system event. To give one example (but there would be many more cases with diverse addons), a library uses the ILLiad Alma NCIP addon when processing received & returned loans in Borrowing, and also wants to use the Flag Popper addon to flag certain requests for staff inspection at point of return (currently only one…

  13. Make time units in turnaround time report uniform

    The detailed lending turnaround time report returns time periods that are in minutes, hours, and days, making any kind of comparison impossible. All times should be reported in hours; institutions can then perform calculations as needed.

  14. Include ISIL as supported symbol type in Odyssey protocol.

    Odyssey currently supports the symbol types of OCLC, DOC (Docline), ISO and RAPID. At ReShare, we would love it if the schema were updated to include ISIL symbols so that we could transfer files for non-returnables. Please support ISIL (ISO15511:2009) as a library symbol taxonomy for Odyssey. (https://webstore.ansi.org/standards/iso/iso155112009)

  17. Connection Manager stops importing Lending when invalid unicode character in a lending request gets stuck

    Sometimes an OCLC lending request includes a unicode character that keeps it from being able to be imported into ILLiad. Right now sites just notice this is happening because Lending requests get stuck behind it. And until the OCLC request is cancelled via Worldshare, the Lending requests aren't able to be imported.

    Could there be a way for staff to see that this is the issue in the Connection Manager log in the client, or something else?

  18. renewal

    Add the ability to specify length of renewal to the groups management tab. Since we can set loan periods based upon group, renewal length should also be able to be specified for each group.

  19. Celebration Addon or Feature

    Allow ILLiad staff users to set celebration triggers prompting ILLiad to display animated fireworks or other celebratory image. Set a default trigger of 1,000,000 transactions. Other ideas might be for when queues are cleared or other numbers of transaction totals in each module have been reached. This feature request is in celebration of Auburn University Libraries (AAA) reaching 1 MILLION transactions in ILLiad on 8/17/23.

  20. Update Docline scripts to include fill in to Docline's Place Request by Journal UI

    Not all requests placed in Docline have a PMID. We must use the Place Request by Journal UI (ISSN, NLM, OCLC). This is different than the Manual function in ILLiad. ILLiad does not have a script to fill the citation information in to this request form thus we must type the citation, requestor, and TN number in to the form manually. Because not everything ordered in Docline has a PMID, this is an essential function needed to improve our workflows. A script is needed to facilitate this function.
