  1. Custom Pop-ups

    Allow the creation of pop-up messages based on custom parameters. For example, I would like to create a pop-up that appears for flagged items when processing lending returns.

  2. DOI - improve DOI searching options

    Instructor wants to just put in a DOI for an article request and feels that since that is a unique identifier for an article that it should be all he needs to enter. Make this work unmediated, either via an enhancement or via an addon, that would be really great! Ticket 5983

  3. Staff don't get notified about blocked users when checking in items

    It also doesn't tell staff that a user was automatically unblocked after returning overdue items.

  6. NCIP integration for lending and borrowing

    Integrate the ability to send NCIP messages for both borrowing and lending including support for renewals and recalls into the standard workflow rather than requiring an addon to do so. Settings could be part of the customization manager.

  8. Streamlined patron load/registration functionality and updating of records

    Add functionality to reduce the amount of information a patron has to enter upon registration if the institution already has that info via some other authentication system or other service/database while still getting it into the patron record. Also update patron records if the data in the primary source changes.

  10. I'd like to have the power to make mass changes such as changing Department Names.

    example: Our Political Science department changed their name. I want to be able to make this change to all the existing patrons it would apply to.

  11. Automatically block patron accounts when the expiration date is reached

    All patron accounts are given expiration dates but the account remains active beyond this date until something occurs and the account is investigated and then manually blocked.
    It would be great to have the system automatically block users when the expiration date is reached. This would help prevent graduated students and people no longer with our library from requesting materials through our services.

  12. Enhance cancellation emails to borrowers to allow specific emails to be sent for specific cancellation reasons.

    From customer regarding patron notification email templates used for the cancellation of borrowing transactions. : It would be helpful if I had a template for each reason and if ILLiad would automatically select the right one for each specific reason.

  14. Flag or add a notification of some sort sort to identify stale requests.

    It would be nice to be able to see requests that are sitting around in queues when they should have moved on or some action might need to be taken by staff. An example would be items that have been sitting in Request Sent for too long with patrons not getting their materials in a timely fashion.

  18. Support for multiple renewal requests by web user

    The end user needs to be able to request a renewal more than once. Also, once that renewal has been approved the next time, it should go back to Awaiting Renewal OK Processing, regardless that it has already been at that status once before.

  19. Improve normalization of journal titles for copyright searching and counting against rule of five

    Some titles have carriage returns, trailing spaces, and abbreviations that make the rule of five not match. Also, journals change title throughout their run. Should the copyright query count another field like ISSN, OCLC Number, or some other field?

  20. ILLiad Event Hook for Borrowing Item Shipped

    Would it be possible to create an event hook that would trigger when ILLiad detects that an item has been updated to Shipped in OCLC? Currently, my code is regularly checking the Request Sent status for a new value in the DueDate field, but it would be preferable to have it triggered by a system event.
