  1. Add additional Result Mapping options for Z39.50

    It would be nice if there were one or two more fields where data grabbed via Z39.50 could be imported into ILLiad. In particular, "Item Num" would be an ideal place to hold a barcode, rather than having to concatenate it to a different value (as described here: https://support.atlas-sys.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360006750353-Finding-Importing-the-Barcode-Field).

  2. Include ability to batch update records

    I realize that this could be very dangerous and should be locked down behind something like the database manager, but having the ability to batch update records (transaction, user, lender, etc) in ILLiad would be a huge time saver. There are times when local data or workflows change, and the ability to change more than one record at once would open up a lot of possibilities.

  3. A key to determine if request auto opens (or doesn't) when it's the only item in a queue.

    I would like to be able to control if a request will automatically open when searched or when a queue of one is displayed.

    Primarily, I want to be able to STOP the request from opening automatically. Many times we search for an item to see info, or route to an active status, and auto opening just slows down our ability to do this as we wait for the request to render.

  4. 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.

  5. Add a way to reveal what you type in the password change box

    Add a way to reveal what you type in the password change box so staff can make sure they have typed in what they think they've typed in.

  6. It should be an option to allow staff to close out of the "password change" window.

    It should be an option to allow staff to close out of the "password change" window so that they can choose to change your password later.

  7. 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.

  8. Save some user demographic info with the request for reporting/statistics.

    Store demographics (ie, non personally identifying information, such as major or department) associated with a user request, to the request, not just the user.

    This would allow us to know better understand ‘how many requests were submitted by BIOLOGY majors’ in a given period of time vs. having those BIOLOGY requests migrate to a new major when USERS change major or vice versa.

  9. Fix the grid control for client addons.

    The grid control causes ILLiad to freeze for a verrry long time when it tries to display a table with more than a few dozen results in more than a couple columns. It seems like displaying large amounts of data would be its intended use, so I'm guessing something about it must be broken?

  10. 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.

  11. Add Get It Now and Publishers Web

    As a part of our current workflow, we compare the cost of the copyright fee, Get It Now and Reprints Desk. Release 9.1 will allow staff to compare the cost of the copyright fee and Reprints Desk. Adding the capability to compare all costs (Reprints Desk, Get it Now, publishers) will allow staff to make better use of ILLiad 9.1 decision support pipeline.

  12. Add renewal yes/no and renewal request options to the AddESPUpdate command

    It would be nice to be able to respond to renewals and make renewal requests via the AddESPUpdate command in server addons. Renewals in both Borrowing and Lending could be completely automated.

    EDIT: Updating to Returned would also be nice. Really, just let us change the OCLC status in any way the system already can.

  13. Add Preferred Name Fields in the ILLiad Patron Record

    Currently ILLiad has Last Name and First Name fields in the patron record, but other databases on our campus, including our ILS, have the additional fields of Preferred First Name, Preferred Middle Name, and Preferred Last Name. It would be great if ILLiad would add these fields.

  15. Make the "Save" button larger on request screens

    Currently the "save" button is small icon on the top of the window for patron records and updating lender records. Please make it the same size as the other buttons.

  17. Status-Specific changeuserinformation form Validation

    on behalf of New Mexico State Library: We would like the ability to have a status-specific ChangeUserInformation form validation. As a referral center for our state, small libraries throughout the state have ILLiad user records to place requests that we process on their behalf. We would like to require different user information on those user records than we require for our other patrons who are individuals working in state government.

  18. Modify most requested journal web reports

    The current Web Report for Borrowing Most Requested Journals is looking at the ESPNumber to match multiple requests. Whereas, the default copyright query looks at the PhotoJournalTitle field. This causes confusion where there is discrepancy between to the 2 lists. It is also becoming more common to request items from a document provider resulting in a request without an ESPNumber.

  19. Change when billing occurs

    Currently, when the lender updates a request to ship, the borrower is automatically charged. This creates problems when items are never received or the wrong item is shipped. The borrower should have an option to indicate that the item was never received or the wrong item was shipped and not be charged through IFM in such situations.
