  2. Allow the CreationDate field to be added to loan and article pull slip templates

    It isn't currently possible to add the CreationDate field to the loan and article pull slip templates because that field is not included in the xlsx datasource columns. Can this be fixed? Having the CreationDate field on pullslips would make it easier to know which printed requests are close to expiring and need immediate attention.

  3. Warn or prevent staff from marking requests found after they have aged out to next lender in OCLC

    OCLC Lending requests remain in processing queues even when they have aged out and moved to the next lender (or are returned to the borrowing library unfilled, if the library is the last/only in the lending string). Staff are unable to filter by or see the OCLC status in grid views, so individual requests must be opened to see if a request is no longer in a CONSIDERING status and has aged (or even been deleted by or cancelled by the borrower). Requests may age out for various reasons while sites are continuing to retrieve/process requested items and it is…

  4. Bulk Renew in Borrowing

    With libraries closed indefinitley all over the world, we have to push due dates out, possibly multiple times. This is easy enough to do in an ILS, but ILLiad does not allow me, as the Borrowing Coordinator, to push out a renewal request for one new due date for all items currently due before that date. That would save me hours, possibly days of work!

  5. 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…

  6. Billing Manager: send .pdf invoices via email

    Billing manager is great for print invoices, but we would like a more integrated way to send email invoices through Billing Manager. Currently, we generate the invoices and then have to break them into individual .pdfs before sending via email or regular mail. It would be great if there was a one click solution to just send the invoice via email to each library.

  7. Warning re: Multiple Pieces in Web Circ

    Add a prompt or warning when an item which has multiple pieces is updated to Mark Returned in Web Circ so that staff are alerted to the fact that more than one items should be returned with that request.

  8. Improve design of Customization Manager for Shared Server Sites

    Because a user selects a site in the Home ribbon, it is not clear that tabs and configurations made for Z39.50, Notification Templates Server Addons and DSP apply to all sites.

    This used to be more clear when these options were available at the Ribbon level.

    It would also be helpful to remove the ILL selection option from the Home ribbon for Shared Server installations to avoid confusion when editing key and table entries.

  9. ILLiad Aeon integration: send scan files back to ILLiad for request fulfillment

    We use ILLiad to Aeon integration to facilitate Special Collections scanning for ILL lending. When we send a scan request via ILLiad to Aeon, we would like the ability for Aeon to pass the .pdf back to ILLiad for request fulfillment. Currently, Aeon staff have to email the .pdf to ILL staff in order for the file to get uploaded to ILLiad for ILL delivery. This would be similar to the Ares/ILLiad integration: we pass scans to ILLiad from Ares for scanning fulfillment through OpenURL.

  10. ILLiad Lending scanning display email of borrower

    In the lending scanning window, display the email address of the borrower. When sending via Article Exchange it isn't always known if the email address is filled out in the address book. If the email address is not in the address book, the article does not get delivered.

  11. BI for Illiad similiar to BI for Aeon and Ares

    It would be good to have BI reporting for ILLiad like Aeon and Ares.

  12. Auto update for Custom Groups

    Auto update of Custom Group when using exact name of the OCLC Group Access Capability (GAC), such as ACOV. Manually adding individual codes for all of us seems redundant.

  13. Deliver accessible PDFs via Odyssey--i.e. run PDFs through software to OCR before delivery

    Our campus wants us to deliver accessible PDFs for faculty who post files online for classes. Many libraries scan as images and deliver via Odyssey as part of the scanning process. They don't have opportunity to OCR files before delivery.

  14. Add Expired User Indication on User Record

    When using User Expiration in 9.1, the only indication of a user's expired status on the User Record is the Expiration Date. All other indicators are the same as a New User :

    User Record= no status button active
    https://www.screencast.com/t/1xqQr0NbaIZ

    Transaction Record=flag by username and "user not cleared" status warning
    https://www.screencast.com/t/0DttY3BXKQkP

    I would be helpful to be able to readily distinguish between users that are expired vs. users that are new.

  15. Do not move completed requests to Cancelled by ILL Staff when disavowing users

    When a user is disavowed, it makes sense to cancel all outstanding requests so that they are not processed. It does not make sense to move completed requests (in queues Request Finished or Delivered to Web) to Cancelled by ILL Staff. This skews statistics.

  16. Enable an end of semester due date change function

    It would be great if I could, through the Customization Manager or the client, set a Due Date Override so that I could make everything due before the end of the semester for specific patron groups (Undergraduates go far away over winter break and don't give their stuff back, but Staff are here year round)

  17. More ItemInfo and UserInfo fields

    Consider increasing the number of ItemInfo and UserInfo fields to more than 5 each. We have already used up all of the ItemInfo fields and have had to re-purpose existing fields to collect the additional information we need in our borrowing requests.

  18. Easy Article Request Submitting for Users using DOI or PMID in ILLiad Web Client

    If a user has a PMID or DOI they could insert that number or URL into a field when requesting an article. Once the number/URL is in the correct field it would automatically fill in all the needed citation information so they do not have to. A users that may not know how to use the automated database search and fill ILLiad request may like this feature. Also the user that has many request that need to be placed.

  19. In-library use option for checking-out and checking-in items in Web Circ

    Could you provide a Web Circ option for checking-out and checking-in in-library use items multiple times for a patron? Currently, we don't have an electronic means of tracking when an in-library use item has been removed from our ILL pick up shelf or is being consulted by our patrons.

  20. Have Chrome (or FireFox) be the ILLiad default browser

    Several of our library's databases don't play nice with IE anymore, so when searching for an article while in ILLiad, we have to cut and paste the link into another browser before we can continue the search. This would (hopefully) be eliminated if IE were not the default browser.
