  1. Include $0 charges for EFTS libraries in Billing Manager EFTS file for Upload to MLA EFTS

    From user: New EFTS system automatically uploads all completed transactions into our account with our base fee but we can override with our own file. Currently ILLiad does not include $0 charges in the file for upload.

  2. SLPasswordChanged does not appear on page

    When a patron signs in and attempts to change their password, they do not receive the "success" message even through the system has accepted their change after submission. They then attempt to change what they entered or resubmit what they do not realize they have already submitted.

  3. 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.

  4. Add the ability to increase font size in the staff view for older folks or the visually impaired.

    The current font size in the staff interface is not adjustable within the application. It would be useful and decrease eye strain is the font could be adjusted to user preferences, Regular, Large or Extra Large maybe?

  8. Add password reset error message when username is incorrect

    Current if a user enters an invalid username on the password reset page no error message is presented.

    Common functionality in other environments would present an error message directing users to contact staff to obtain the username.

  9. 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.

    As a part of the Automatic User Expiration feature, 4 new Customization Keys were added to the Customization Manager in v9.1 under System | User Expiration including AutoExpireUsers which determines if the System should automatically expire users. If set to yes, the system will set the cleared value of expired users to the value specified by the ‘AutoExpireUsersClearedValue’ key.

  10. Include the Renewal button for each request on the ILLiad Main Menu by default

    Renewing is more streamlined if you can see the Renewal button for each request on ILLiad Main Menu. Please include in the next batch of default web pages to be released, or as an easy alternative.

    Currently possible with additional web work.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

    As of ILLiad 9.1, authentication enhancements have been added that allow ILLiad to map user attribute fields from external authentication systems into the ILLiad User table fields. Staff is able to select which fields can be passed through to update the user record. Users can now be automatically created, pre-cleared, and skip the NewAuthRegistration and Billing pages for user clearance into ILLiad.

  16. Allow API to truncate field lengths needed for acceptance

    The way the API currently functions is that if an entry in a field is too long for the database to receive the call falls. It would be nice if the API was able to truncate the field to the appropriate length so the call would still go through but the offending field would be automatically trimmed to the needed length.

  17. 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.

    Atlas Systems’ doesn’t currently provide MSI files for our ILLiad installers and doesn’t support remote installations. ILLiad installers are created using Installshield, which wraps the Microsoft MSI functionality and requires the use of an answer file to silently answer any questions asked during deployment. You can create recordings of the options chosen in the UI to be used for silent installations/uninstallations by running the installer at least once to record your answers. For details see: https://support.atlas-sys.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058986953.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
