  2. Allow Address number field change

    When a new lender address is created, an address number is automatically assigned and that number cannot be changed. Please allow that field to be edited in case we want to re-arrange the order of our addresses. Some addresses are used a lot more often and we want that to be 1 or 2 but cannot right now. Thank you.

  3. Check Routing rules after a TN is moved to a new status/queue via IDS Logic

    ILLiad does not apply routing rules to a TN if it was moved to its current status via an addon, like the IDS Logic addon for example.

  5. Ability to print selected pull slips

    Would love to print from different physical locations but need to be able to select which pull slips (or receives, or whatever!) should be pulled for printing, so that you do not disrupt work at another location.

  6. Add Note While Returning Books

    When I check items in to return them to their owning institutions, I often need to make a note in the request. Currently I can only do that by opening the request first. It would be nice if I could double-click in the notes field and add the note from the "Borrowing Check Item In" screen.

  7. ILLiad does not pull all data from Docline when an ISBN for a book is provided

    For example, the field will be "978-0". This leaves staff without entire citation and have to go back to Docline to retrieve it. It would be great if this were fixed

  9. Batch Add notes to requests

    It would be helpful to be able to select multiple requests then click a button on the ribbon saying "Add Note," which would then open a field to add a note to all highlighted requests. Having to open each request to add the same note repeatedly is unwieldy.

  10. Additional options in the Lending Overdues ribbon

    It would be very helpful to have the Lending Overdues ribbon have the options that various queues have: Export, Add Flag, etc.

  11. Allow auto renewals for ILLiad requests by status and date settings

    A customer asked for this during the #ILLiad24 event at roundtable. Have an options for settings per time period like semester table in Ares to specify dates until which items can be renewed automatically. After that date items could be renew denied or manually processed. It would be nice to set this by status so that faculty could request renewals across semesters but students would need to return items by end of semester etc. Decision Support Pipeline and Business Rules can probably already make this work when the new renewal features are released.

  12. Save Customized Grids

    It would be incredibly helpful to be able to save grid layouts as .xml files in ILLiad to apply to other users or to other queues for the same user. It appears this is already supported in Aeon: https://support.atlas-sys.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011821354-Saving-and-Loading-Grid-Layouts
    (I saw this suggested on the Ares Ideas area; this would be great for Ares as well.)

  14. Make barcodes more usable/searchable in the ILLiad client

    Expand the ItemNumber field in ILLiad to accommodate multiple barcodes for multi-volume sets. Add ItemNumber to the default Number search in the ILLiad ribbon for easy access. Add ItemNumber to fields searched by TN/ILL # search on Check Item In interface.

    All of the above would allow more efficient handling of borrowing returns when paperwork with Transaction is missing.

  15. Add price to Symbol/days to lend grid instead of hovering for that information.

    Having to hover over a symbol to see the cost while in borrowing trying to build a custom string takes extra time. It would be great if the cost could be displayed right next to the days to fill.

  16. Tag other ILLiad users in a staff note

    We can use flags and notes to ask other ILLiad staff users questions about a request, but it would be even simpler if we could include @PersonName in a staff note and notify them that they'd been tagged for review/response.

  17. Import ILL into Alma without Checking In

    Sometimes when I check in an item from a lending library, I receive an NCIP error that causes a loan to not be automatically imported into Alma. After I fix whatever caused the error, I currently have to check the item in again. This messes up the tracking and can cause an OCLC error. It would be nice if there was an option to only import the request without updating the status in ILLiad and OCLC.

  18. Book Chapters - Should use Article holdings path instead of Loan holdings path

    Book chapter requests use the incorrect custom holdings path; they pull from OCLCILLLoanHoldingsPath instead of OCLCILLArticleHoldingsPath, but the latter is the correct path.

  19. Hard to tell when Editing vs Copying a row in Customization Manager tables

    When working in the OpenURLMapping table, we noticed it really is impossible to tell if you're in the "Copy" or "Edit" mode because the ID value doesn't show up in either of them. We'd expect it to show while in Edit mode, but be blank in Copy mode.

    In general, when working with a table in the customization manager, it gets very confusing when you think you hit Copy but then worry you may have hit Edit instead since the opened row says "Edit Row" either way. If there was some way to indicate better whether you were in Copy…

  20. iOS app for ILLiad on iPad

    Please develop an ILLiad app for iOS on iPad. It would greatly ease some of the difficulties our workers have doing their job remotely.
