  1. Update WorldCat Local Addon to support Chromium Browser

    The WorldCat Local addon is not working in ILLiad v9.2 (and probably other versions too). On display under the tab was an error message saying Internet Explorer browser is not supported. The addon needs to be updated to use the Chromium browser since Internet Explorer is deprecated.

  2. Fix the "Illiad Authentication" Checkbox so it Does not Automatically Enable itself when Saving a New User Record

    Leaving the ILLiad Authentication checkbox unchecked/unchanged when creating a new user will default the user to ILLiad Authentication type.
    Leaving the "ILLiad Authentication" checkbox unchecked/unchanged while creating a user in the Client still defaults to ILLiad Authentication when the user is created, even though the option is not checked when saving. This bug has been around for awhile with no fix in sight. Can this please be addressed in a future Illiad release? No one can remember to go back and uncheck that box constantly.

    This is currently logged as Bug# 12841

  3. Highlight active requests that you've worked on but need to follow up on

    An option to highlight requests in a queue so if you've opened it, you know you've already worked on it or need to follow up on it later. Ability to assign different colors based on your labeling preferences.

  4. Increase the DOI field character limit to 100 characters

    The current 50 character limit for DOIs is not long enough and many get cut off. Please double the character limit to 100. Example: https://doi.org/10.1093/acrefore/9780190236557.013.20

  5. Allow RapidR borrowing renewals to be sent in batch by the Send OCLC Renewal Requests button

    Currently, the Send OCLC Renewal Requests button will send out renewals for all requests in the status of "Renewed by Customer to MM/DD/YYYY", but it only works on requests with a SystemID of OCLC. Now that RapidR allows renewals within ILLiad, it would be helpful to be able to batch send requests to Rapid using the same button, so that renewals can be sent out regardless of the System ID.

    The query that populates the ESPUpdate table is currently:
    "SELECT t.TransactionNumber, t.ILLNumber, t.SystemID FROM Transactions t JOIN Users u ON (t.Username = u.Username) " +
    "WHERE ((t.TransactionStatus LIKE N'Renewed by…

  6. Allow WebCirc customization in Customization Manager

    Since WebCirc changes are not supported on Atlas hosted servers, it would be nice to add some customization options for WebCirc and WebReports into the Customization Manager.

    As an example, changing the status message that pops up when checking out a transaction for a blocked user.

  7. Support for Controlled Digital Lending Software and Workflows

    Ability to identify requests that will use the lend-like print method using an owned-to-loan ratio, manage due dates, etc. Details on CDL can be found here: https://controlleddigitallending.org/.

  8. Transfer User Notes when merging users

    When an existing user account is merged with an new one, in addition to moving the open requests, we would like any User Notes to be moved as well. We use these notes to track various issues with patron accounts and right now staff are manually copying each note.

  9. Prevent the submission of auto-truncated data in request forms

    Summary by KAK: There isn't anything to indicate to users that their submissions will be truncated when they enter too many characters in request form fields. We've created a workaround by using the WebValidation table for PhotoJournalInclusivePages with a validation of ^$|^.{0,30}$ to represent the field is not required and may only be submitted when its character count is less than 30.

  10. 9.1 replacement for Expires table tag to display pdf expiration date

    The old web pages displayed an 'Expires' date on the table of electronically delivered articles. This let users know how long they had before they would have before the PDF disappeared.
    There is no way to include this in the new 9.1 web pages since table tags are no longer supported. It would be great to have something to replace this, using DaysBeforeElectronicDeliveryCleanup and the transaction's tracking entries to determine when it was first Delivered to Web to calculate the expiration date.

  11. Make ILLiad Web Circulation's Checked out/in message more prominent

    The current message saying a book was checked in or out is too similar to the text already on the page, and our students never notice it and get confused as to whether a book has actually been checked out. If it was even just bold, in red, or a little bit larger font, it would stand out a lot more.

  12. Add another note type

    We like to hide our staff notes (via customization manager), but it would be nice to have another option for adding notes viewable to the user. Perhaps a Staff-hidden and Staff - so we could hide some notes but make others visible to the user in their account/request.

  13. Exporting Customization Manager Tables

    Would like the ability to export tables from the customization manager into an excel xls, xlsx, or csv file so that changes can be made.

    And then ideally allow the changed file to be uploaded into the customization manager to change the table too.

    Tables like the Routing table would really be easier to manage and edit like this.

  14. Support copying lending request data from Docline web browser

    ILLiad used to have a feature that would allow us to copy the Docline new lending requests page from a web browser and import them into ILLiad.

    With recent changes to Google account security not working within ILLiad, and Microsoft accounts suddenly not being recognized by Docline, it would be great to be able to copy the page from a web browser. We do not have access to the other login options offered by Docline/NLM

    As it stands, our only option is to copy each request line-by-line into a blank ILLiad form.

  15. Allow Layout Modification for Queues/Flags that are Currently Empty

    It would be great to have some view in the client of all existing queues and flags, regardless of whether they currently have any requests in them, so that layout and customization of categories can be more thorough.

  16. Incoming Lending RapidR to reflect default Renewal setting in Customization Manager

    Incoming Lending RapidR requests in ILLiad are set to be "No Renewal" by default. We wanted to change it since we now allow renewals, yet our Loan labels print as "No Renewal." A borrowing library pointed out that it is confusing when they process Receives.

    I was told by OCLC and Rapid (Exlibris) that RapidR requests do not reflect the "LendingRestrictDefault" keys for Renewals, Photocopying, and Library Use Only in Customization Manager.

    I wish Lending RapidR requests could reflect these default values the same as OCLC Loan requests in ILLiad.

  17. Change the default "Save as type" for Electronic Delivery from TIFF to PDF

    Good to have a copy of files which wasn't sent via Odyssey and are sitting in ED. It will save processing time to save files form Electronic delivery.

  19. Restrict access to Policies Directory in Staff Manager

    We would like to restrict access to the Policies Directory in the ILLIad client by adding permission levels to staff users. Currently this link is available to any staff including student workers who are using the ILLiad client to process requests. We have recently had an issue with a student worker changing our Policies Directory without our knowledge.

    The change would inactivate or hide the link to the Policies Directory if the user's permissions did allow for that access.
