  1. Ability to suspend patron from loans while still allowing requests for article copies.

    We have users who cannot be trusted with book loans, but I still want them to be able to request articles. I'd like a way to block loans but not articles.

  2. I'd like to have the power to make mass changes such as changing Department Names.

    example: Our Political Science department changed their name. I want to be able to make this change to all the existing patrons it would apply to.

  3. ILLiad stub accounts made when users fail to complete the registration process should be assigned to an NVTGC in use.

    When an ILLiad stub account gets made due to incomplete registration it should not be assigned to a site not in use like "ILL." Allow users to configure what site/NVTGC those stub accounts should be assigned to.

  4. Allow API to Add, Remove, and Update records in the UserValidation table

    Stanford U is locally hosted and has a custom job that imports users directly into the Users table. This job will update users based on any change event triggered in the Registrar's database. It creates many users that never end up using ILLiad. We would like a standard method of creating a process that pushes users into the UserValidation table and can update users, regardless of their being in the Validation table or in the Users table.

  5. Proxy User Functionality

    We have teaching assistants/administrative assistants/research assistants who are asked to request materials on behalf of an other ILLiad user. It would be helpful if a proxy account could be created for these assistants to create the request, but for the primary user to be responsible for the item (loan) and notified of delivery (article).

  6. Streamlined patron load/registration functionality and updating of records

    Add functionality to reduce the amount of information a patron has to enter upon registration if the institution already has that info via some other authentication system or other service/database while still getting it into the patron record. Also update patron records if the data in the primary source changes.

  7. Allow API to update existing users

    This is similar to the request to "update user account by pulling user data from org directories via Single Sign on"

  8. When non-OCLC library creates an LWeb account, have a registration workflow built in to check legitimacy before they can submit requests

    We want non-OCLC libraries to be able to create their own accounts, and to be able to make that process more transparent. However, right now, anyone can create an account and immediately place requests.

    After catching some illegitimate requests entered in this way we made a routing rule to review LWeb requests, but it would be better to have the workflow built into the system, so we can better manage approving, expiring, blocking, and communicating with non-OCLC libraries.

  9. Add the ability to anonymize ILLiad transactions

    There have been requests for a tool to allow sites to anonymize ILLiad transactions similar to the old break the user link scripts. Would like to be able to preserve stats while maintaining confidentiality for patrons.

  10. When creating new users in the staff client, default to electronic notification options

    Currently, none of the notification check boxes are checked by default on the new user form. Staff have to remember which of the check boxes to check to set a new user to receive all electronic notifications. It would be good to have a setting that made those check boxes checked by default.
