  1. Remove editing options for admin Lending and Unmatched user accounts.

    Johns Hopkins had a mishap where the Lending user for one of the shared server sites had its NVTGC changed in the Location dropdown in the Staff Client. This moved all of the site's Lending requests into the other site's view. Perhaps we could consider removing the ability to edit the "Lending User" accounts and the Unmatched accounts.

  2. API functionality include renewal requests from patrons

    The ILLiad API is great because patrons can view all their requests local and ILL in one place but this is really read only. It would be very helpful for the API to also allow for renewal requests or to support a renewal request via NCIP.

  3. Bring back the autofill when typing in notes

    ILLiad used to autofill notes that had already been used in the current session. You could just type the first few letters and the note would come up.

  4. Allow the document type to be set on default ILLiad web forms

    Use case: A library would like to offer the option for patrons to request a loan in ebook format and process through the Occam's Reader addon. We have set this up as an option with an Item Info field currently, but it would be helpful to be able to use Document Type where this info seems to live more naturally. The other workaround considered was changing the default loan form for GenericRequestLoan but this seemed like a lot of extra work (include_menus, OpenURL Mapping, Validation, etc.) just to add a new value. So if we ever get to make changes…

  7. Allow shared server installations to share a RAPID account (similar to sharing OCLC account)

    When downloading new requests, a certain site code would need to be designated as the primary site for receiving those requests. The requests could then be doled out to other ILLiad sites on the server for fulfillment and all would update that same RAPID account.

  8. Default OpenURL journal genre to article form instead of loan form

    Most examples of OpenURL with the "journal" genre are still article requests versus a request for a loan of the entire journal. Data would not be lost if we use the article request form instead.

  9. iOS app for ILLiad on iPad

    Please develop an ILLiad app for iOS on iPad. It would greatly ease some of the difficulties our workers have doing their job remotely.

  10. Electronic Delivery Utility

    Enhance EDU to allow multiple copies (using Automode) to process files from the same scanned file folder for different nvtgc sites. Currently the EDU reads through all scanned files in a folder and when more than one EDU is running it can lock the file causing errors for the other EDUs trying to process that file.

  11. Ability to display and update user information on a transaction/request form

    Recent issues with COVID 19 are increasing use of the "mail to address" workflow for home delivery. It would be helpful for users to be able to view their address and other user information from the request form should it need to be updated.

  12. Allow deletion of unmatched electronic delivery

    Sometimes items with a status of Delivered to Web will reroute back into electronic delivery. The item is then stuck in the "No ILL Lender Match" box and can't be be deleted or permanently rerouted back to Delivered to Web. Each time this happens OCLC support has to manually delete the transaction. ILL staff should have the ability to delete. Or, the bug that reroutes transactions back into electronic delivery needs to be patched.

  13. DKIM support

    ILLiad needs support for DKIM and to allow configuration to differentiate From addresses and Reply-To addresses to prevent ILLiad messages from going to SPAM.

  14. Allow WebAlerts to be set based on User LoanDeliveryMethod

    WebAlerts can currently be set by a number of useful keys, like DeliveryLocation (which NVTGC code a user has set as pickup location).

    Like many libraries, we are greatly increasing mail to home options due to COVID-19, and the majority of our classes being remote in the fall, and are using Users.LoanDeliveryMethod.

    I'd love to be able to give special messages to patrons depending on whether they have marked LoanDeliveryMethod MailToAddress or HoldForPickup. For those being mailed, I want to remind them to update their address; for those picking up, there may be changes iin hold shelf protocol.

    Thanks for…

  17. staff password complexity description

    Add a field to the StaffPasswordComplexity field to allow a plain text description of the regular expression. A user should able to view what the password requirements for staff passwords are without having knowledge of regular expressions.

  18. Stop the Electronic Delivery Utility from trying to deliver hidden files/files that haven't fully saved yet

    We recently set up an external software to add OCR to our files; the workflow is to save the files to an input folder, and for the software to process the files and move them to the OdysseyTemp File folder for Electronic Delivery Utility to update ILLiad and deliver. This should work really well -- except Electronic Delivery Utility frequently tries to deliver the files before they have fully saved. It fails, and then will not try to process the files again unless you close and re-open the program.

    We've also seen Electronic Delivery Utility fail to deliver larger files,…

  19. Printing a individual invoice

    I would like the ability to print an invoice right away for the libraries that email their request and ask that we attach an invoice to the request. Most of the time these are specialty or international libraries that rarely or don't use OCLC or Docline. This would also be good for individual users ( former Lomsone Doc Users) who are not part of our university or our medical association.

  20. Add Information to the coversheet

    It would be nice to have the patron's name, transaction number, part of the citation, and fee added to the cover sheet. This would useful for the people who are not part of the university to keep track of the fees.
    I usually add the fee in the note section, but creating a separate field and allowing the user to have a PDF of the request with the fee on it would also be helpful.
