  2. Make ILLiad Web Circulation's Checked out/in message more prominent

    The current message saying a book was checked in or out is too similar to the text already on the page, and our students never notice it and get confused as to whether a book has actually been checked out. If it was even just bold, in red, or a little bit larger font, it would stand out a lot more.

  3. Add another note type

    We like to hide our staff notes (via customization manager), but it would be nice to have another option for adding notes viewable to the user. Perhaps a Staff-hidden and Staff - so we could hide some notes but make others visible to the user in their account/request.

  4. Allow Layout Modification for Queues/Flags that are Currently Empty

    It would be great to have some view in the client of all existing queues and flags, regardless of whether they currently have any requests in them, so that layout and customization of categories can be more thorough.

  5. Restrict access to Policies Directory in Staff Manager

    We would like to restrict access to the Policies Directory in the ILLIad client by adding permission levels to staff users. Currently this link is available to any staff including student workers who are using the ILLiad client to process requests. We have recently had an issue with a student worker changing our Policies Directory without our knowledge.

    The change would inactivate or hide the link to the Policies Directory if the user's permissions did allow for that access.

  6. Allow borrowing items to be checked in by Web Circ if they are awaiting Renewal or Recalled Processing

    If items are in the "Awaiting Renewal Request Processing" (including "Awaiting Renewal OK Processing") or "Awaiting Recalled Processing" queues, they should be eligible for checkin via the Web Circ. As it stands, when patrons try to return books that are in one of those queues, they cannot be checked in and require intervention by ILL staff before they can be sent back.

  7. In the ILLiad scanning interface, allow function keys for B&W, grayscale, and RGB settings.

    The ILLiad scanning interface already allows use of a Quick Scan Key to initiate a scan, but it's highly cumbersome to still mouse into Settings and switch the dropdown back and forth between B&W, grayscale, and RGB within a request. Could you create a functionality so that staff can program keyboard function keys for each of those color settings and easily switch between them when scanning?

  9. Customize List of Queues in Route Button Dropdown List

    {Submitted by Kerry on behalf of customer}

    UC Boulder would like the ability to customize which queues appear and in which order they appear in the Routing button's dropdown list in the ILLiad Client. The site does not use many of the default queues that appear in the dropdown list and wishes that it was possible to make their more frequently used queues easier to access.

    They would like to be able to:

    General Wishes:
    *Suppress default queues.
    *Rearrange the order of all available queues, without the forced separation between default queues and custom queues.

    Unicorn wish:
    *Have the ability…

  10. Add a refresh button to the ILLiad user - Requests tab.

    It would be nice if you could refresh the status and number of requests in an ILLiad user (request tab) without a close/reopen.

  12. Turn off animations on Due Date calendar in Client

    When trying to change the due date in ILLiad using the built-in calendar, moving through the months using the arrows results in an animation, and you can’t scroll to the next month until the animation stops for the current month. It’s just a fraction of a second, but when we receive a generous renewal of several months, it’s an annoyance to have to wait for the animation before moving to the next month, rather than having the month load instantly as it does in many built-in calendars in other software/apps. (Workaround: I'll try to get in the habit of typing…

  13. Routing Queue saved to Quick Access Toolbar should remain after logged out of ILLiad.

    Currently, routing queues added to the quick access toolbar disappear once someone logs out of ILLiad. It would be nice if the quick access toolbar saved any customization instead of having to added routing queue every time someone logs into ILLiad.

  14. Sites should be limited to view Web Alerts to only those created by their staff

    For sites within a consortium, it would be a good idea to limit sites to view Web Alerts only to those created by their staff i.e. limit to view those created by their NVTGC.

    The delete option also should be restricted to the Web Alerts created by their own staff/NVTGC. Otherwise their is danger of the wrong alert (Alert of another institution) inadvertently getting deleted.

  15. ILLiad does not pull all data from Docline when an ISBN for a book is provided

    For example, the field will be "978-0". This leaves staff without entire citation and have to go back to Docline to retrieve it. It would be great if this were fixed

  16. Allow Address number field change

    When a new lender address is created, an address number is automatically assigned and that number cannot be changed. Please allow that field to be edited in case we want to re-arrange the order of our addresses. Some addresses are used a lot more often and we want that to be 1 or 2 but cannot right now. Thank you.

  19. Add an automated password reset for staff ILLiad client passwords

    Allow staff to reset their own passwords when they forget them for the ILLiad client (similar to user password reset functions via web). "Forgot Password"? for the client interface rather than another staff person having to go into Staff Manager to reset it manually.

  20. Make barcodes more usable/searchable in the ILLiad client

    Expand the ItemNumber field in ILLiad to accommodate multiple barcodes for multi-volume sets. Add ItemNumber to the default Number search in the ILLiad ribbon for easy access. Add ItemNumber to fields searched by TN/ILL # search on Check Item In interface.

    All of the above would allow more efficient handling of borrowing returns when paperwork with Transaction is missing.
