  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Auto due date/overdue reminders should continue, even after an item has reached "very overdue"

    If an item gets to the stage of "very overdue" in ILLiad and then the item is renewed, I've noticed that ILLiad's auto-reminders stop going forward. It would be nice if they continued to be sent, adjusting for the new due date, regardless of the previous overdue history

  6. Support OAuth 2.0 for SMPT Authentication

    My institution uses Microsoft for email and would like to use OAuth 2.0 to authenticate in ILLiad. We currently use a local SMTP server to send emails using a university account, allowing ILLiad emails to come from a trusted university address. However, my IT department informed me that Microsoft will no longer allow this type of configuration and recommends that library applications use OAuth 2.0 to authenticate to the server before sending emails. It is my understanding that OAuth 2.0 is more secure than ILLiad's current SMTP login as OAuth does not pass credentials. I know that other library vendors,…

  8. Match on TN in the Electronic Delivery Process form

    Relais FTP process does not allow the inclusion of the ILL Number from Docline requests (I assume OCLC requests either) so the received xml file only has the DocumentID for Sender and Receiver. The Electronic Delivery Process does not match the file to the request on the TN even though it displays in the form. Please enhance to match the received Odyssey file to the request by the TN if the ILL number is not included in the xml file.

  9. Filter notifications on web to only show emails sent to the user

    Ability to filter notifications under the History > Notification’s page to limit only emails sent to the patron. Right now, this includes all emails sent from ILLiad related to that user's account such as emails that were sent to Acquisitions about purchasing a book.

  10. Show WorldShare's "Lost" button in received borrowing loan requests

    WorldShare has a "Lost" button that appears on all all Received loans (including overdue items and those in any renewal status, even renewal denied). When you click the "Lost" button, the item moves to "RECEIVED_MISSING" in OCLC, which makes it much easier for the lending library to close the transaction once they receive the replacement payment for a lost item.

    It would be helpful to have the ability to choose "Lost" on the OCLC record directly within ILLiad, in the OCLC ribbon alongside Complete/Receive/Not Received/Return/etc.

  11. Customize List of Queues in Route Button Dropdown List

    {Submitted by Kerry on behalf of customer}

    UC Boulder would like the ability to customize which queues appear and in which order they appear in the Routing button's dropdown list in the ILLiad Client. The site does not use many of the default queues that appear in the dropdown list and wishes that it was possible to make their more frequently used queues easier to access.

    They would like to be able to:

    General Wishes:
    *Suppress default queues.
    *Rearrange the order of all available queues, without the forced separation between default queues and custom queues.

    Unicorn wish:
    *Have the ability…

  12. Add a refresh button to the ILLiad user - Requests tab.

    It would be nice if you could refresh the status and number of requests in an ILLiad user (request tab) without a close/reopen.

  14. Allow borrowing library to update OCLC Status to RECIEVED if still in CONSIDERING status

    It would be really helpful if borrowing libraries could update the OCLC Status to Received if the lending library forgets to update the request to Shipped, but the borrower receives the item anyway. We then have to contact the lending library and hope that they update the status to Shipped before the request expires. Even having a warning message pop up in ILLiad when trying to check the item in that says the status is CONSIDERING would be incredibly helpful.

  15. Keep user on Main Menu Page after renewing an item

    If a user is on the Main Menu page and wants to renew a checked out item, clicking on the renew button directs the user to the transaction details. Instead, allow the user to remain on the Main Menu and display the success error so the patron doesn't have to navigate back to the main page.

  16. Add autofocus to the first field on all ILLiad web forms (request forms, search page, etc.)

    It would enhance accessibility if each of the ILLiad 9.1 forms (request forms, search page, new user info, reset password, login, etc.) used the autofocus feature to activate the cursor in the first blank field. See: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_input_autofocus.asp We're working on adding this manually to our pages, but having it in the pages by default would be better!

  17. Turn off animations on Due Date calendar in Client

    When trying to change the due date in ILLiad using the built-in calendar, moving through the months using the arrows results in an animation, and you can’t scroll to the next month until the animation stops for the current month. It’s just a fraction of a second, but when we receive a generous renewal of several months, it’s an annoyance to have to wait for the animation before moving to the next month, rather than having the month load instantly as it does in many built-in calendars in other software/apps. (Workaround: I'll try to get in the habit of typing…

  20. Separate email notification template for Library Use Only loans

    Loans marked Library Use Only should have a separate notification template.

    Being able to explain the process for a Library Use Only item without merging it with other notifications would reduce patron confusion. Further, we are now allowing patrons to set their own preferences for Loan Delivery Method, and are mailing some materials. If a patron is set to Mail To Address, ILLiad skips the In Transit queue and immediately sends out notifications! We've had to put in place a special custom queue, and a special custom email, and rely on staff to catch that a request is marked Library…
