  1. Expand the borrowing statuses in which patron cannot cancel.

    Not sure if this goes in the web interface. We have some custom queues we use for items that we've already ordered and do not want to have the ability for a patron to cancel. Right now can only specify cannot cancel if item is in the "Request Sent" status.

  2. Phone field in the address book add extension field or allow for more characters

    The current field cannot accommodate phone extensions; they get cut off.

  4. Adjust API to allow non-boolean values to be posted into the Rush field.

    After working with the developers, it was discovered that the BillingServiceLevel table determines the dropdown options for the Rush field in the Transactions table, but the API can only take Yes or No values when creating a transaction. We would like the API to take the same values that are possible using the web and staff client.

  5. Adjust note fields to fit content

    I always have to adjust the column width of the notes in ILLiad so that I can actually read the notes. ILLiad should adjust the width automatically to fit the content so that the Note Date and Added By fields are only wide enough for that data and the actual Note field is wide enough to allow staff to read the notes. Specifically I need to look at the notes when returning borrowed items, but this feature would be helpful on every screen.

  6. Support automatic / silent installation of the ILLiad client

    Please provide a .msi installer to allow modest customization and easy silent installation via different system management systems e.g. AD, SCCM, KACE, etc.

  7. ILLiad / Aeon integration - ability to send a note with the request

    When sending a request from ILLiad to Aeon, we can only send the request and information in the fields. It would greatly improve communication if we could add a Note to the request when sending it (similar to a Conditional or Cancellation message).

  8. Installing : Default "unchecked" for opening SQL Manager for small point releases

    Would anyone else like to avoid this when doing "small point" updates to clients?

    When we have small point updates for ILLiad the last step in the process opens the SQL Manager window, unless you uncheck a box on the “Finish” screen, it also (sometimes) does not replace the ILLiad icon on the Taskbar.

    For larger updates, full versions, ILLiad usually has a script that skips (or pre-unchecks) that box and also replaces the icon on the Taskbar.

    In cases here, the SQL Manager window opened and not everyone knows what to do with that (some staff, students are thrown…

  9. Additional location tracking to prevent human error.

    When a lender mistakenly ships something without updating it in ILLIAD, it can often be missed on the borrowing side as well leading to confusion when additional items arrive and libraries not receiving compensation. This is a human error but if there was a software side way to help prevent this it would help high volume users.

  10. Ability to remove loan information from web pages.

    Many libraries take advantage of NCIP integration with their ILS and thus manage loans (due dates and renewals) directly with their ILS, thus patrons are encouraged not to log into ILLiad web pages to perform those tasks. However, there is no easy way to remove or hide that from the web pages.

  11. Set web session timeout by patron type/status

    From customer: We have a faculty member complaining about the web session. We have it set at 10 minutes since so many of our patrons use shared/pubic workstations. Is there any way to individualize web session times by patron type?

  15. Navigation should be wrapped in a nav tag or given a role of navigation

    This makes the navigation easier to navigate to and clearer that it is a navigation when using a screen reader.

  16. Update lending pages to same style as the other Updated Default Pages

    This is necessary because there are multiple ILLiad lending pages that need to be completed for new web tune ups. The changes between the default pages and the updated defaults are different enough that it would be difficult to repeat the changes for each customization as they come in. It will be much easier to have the same starting point for lending pages as we do for borrowing pages.

  19. Make Wanted By/Service Type field on request form consistently say Wanted By

    This will allow that field to save when edited. The Service Type label is very very old and doesn't reflect any database field names.

  20. Allow borrowing articles to deliver immediately via trusted sender and auto bill the default amount to the user

    If every user is always charged $x for an article, there is no reason for staff to mediate those. The billing could be added and the article delivered to the user.
