  1. Improvement to Borrowing Turnaround Times Report

    Currently, the report is generated with Articles, Loans, Overall, and Overall w/ Manually Processed tabs. The Articles, Loans, and Overall tabs are generated with the data of transactions that are automatically processed. What we need is a way to generate this same report with all of the articles regardless of automatic or manual processing (same with loans). With this data being lumped into the Overall w/ Manually Processed tab it is unhelpful when trying to discover total articles or loan turnaround times (not both together).

    What is most desired is a way to decide if the report is generated with…

  2. Extend database field length for ISSN

    Extend the max field length for the ISSN/ISBN field beyond 20 Characters. Users sometimes copy/paste an ISBN with a prefix (e.g. ISBN: 1234567891234). If they do that with a 13-digit ISBN, the last digits are cut off.

  3. Include more high contrast skins in ILLiad

    Customer requests more high contrast skin options for ILLiad. "in general if there is a dark background a light font is better. Dark on dark is difficult to read." More details and pictures in ticket 8724.

  4. Limit Number of Library Symbols added to the Lending String with Custom Holdings

    Add ability to customize the number of libraries that are added when using Custom Holding to create the Lending String.

    Many libraries want to create shorter lending strings (less than fifteen) so that requests are not out for potentially weeks before being filled. Currently, in order to create shorter lending strings you have to manually add library symbols or remove library symbols after using custom holdings to auto-generate a string.

  5. Address validation for shipping

    UPS and FedEx will charge for address corrections. https://www.ups.com/us/en/help-center/sri/glo-addcorr.page
    https://www.franklinparcel.com/what-is-an-address-correction-charge/

    Would be nice to have an address validation app to check addresses and flag incorrect addresses for review before shipping to save on address correction

  6. More ItemInfo and UserInfo fields

    Consider increasing the number of ItemInfo and UserInfo fields to more than 5 each. We have already used up all of the ItemInfo fields and have had to re-purpose existing fields to collect the additional information we need in our borrowing requests.

  7. Bring Back UNDO Shipped for all requests

    Is it possible to have the ability to UNDO Shipped brought back, or have another way to undo a request?

  8. When manually routing a request to a new status, display the name of the new status in the confirmation message

    In the "Confirm Manually Change Status" box, the only message is "Are you sure you want to manually change this status?"

    If this included the new status (eg "Are you sure you want to manually change the status of this request to ____?") this would improve the confirmation process and help to catch when staff accidentally click on the wrong status in the dropdown menu.

  9. 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.

  10. Change how system auto-creates and inserts due date for Lending requests

    At Stanford, we often page books from one site to another and this can take a bit of time. We want the DueDate to reflect when we mark the book as Shipped, instead of when we first open the request. It would be beneficial if changes to this functionality also improved the client's ability to deal with server addons or workflows that bypass opening the request form, entirely, since those requests can wind up missing the due date on pull slips.

  11. Integrate WSILL IFM Refund in ILLiad

    WSILL allows libraries to initiate refunds when erroneous charges are applied. Now that Undo Shipped is not an option for IFM requests, this functionality is needed.

  12. Add a verification when cloning requests

    After clicking "Clone to Current User" have a pop-up window/box that asks "Are you sure you want to clone this request?" Several times I have accidentally cloned a request when I didn't mean to.

  13. Ability to make OCLC borrowing requests from a custom queue

    The functions to create an OCLC borrowing request are not available until the request is opened from the Awaiting Request Processing queue. It would be helpful to be able to create OCLC requests from a custom queue eliminating extra steps for processing items that might routed to a custom queue for review.

  14. Option to rename Custom Holdings Groups

    Currently, Custom Holdings Groups cannot be renamed; instead, a new Custom Holdings Group must be created with a new name. The option to rename groups would be useful especially when formal groups change their names (e.g., RLG to SHARES), or when staff are re-thinking the organization of their locally-designated custom holdings groups.

  15. Consistency with overdue notice schedule settings & disabling notices

    Currently LendingReminderDaysBeforeOverdue and BorrowingingReminderDaysBeforeOverdue adding value of 0 will disable lending reminders. However, in the other keys for scheduling the overdue notices, a 0 value will send the notice on the day the item is overdue.

    It would be helpful if these keys worked the same way and all allowed the ability to disable the notice if you want to send less than three notices with the automated service.

  16. ISSN/ISBN automatically added on "request sent" page

    When sending a borrowing request in ILLiad, have ILLiad bring the ISBN/ISSN from the record selected over from the work form to the main request page, as it does with OCLC numbers/titles. This would help ensure accuracy with the standard number and assist with collecting stats.

  17. Allow for staff to login to the ILLiad client via LDAP or SSO

    From customer: If we could automatically/programmatically create Staff User accounts in ILLiad and have the option for them to authenticate via LDAP to the ILLiad client, that would be really convenient. (Or if there was a Single Sign-On option that used the computer's Windows credentials to authenticate staff users).

  19. Make a library's loan period visible on the borrowing holdings screen

    When creating a holdings list, currently borrowers can see the institution name, days to respond, and fees for lending institutions. It would be nice to see the library's loan period for items in this area.

  20. See last opened request

    Could there be a way to see a list of the last 5 or so requests that a staff person opened? We sometimes forget to place notes or verify a piece of information before it gets routed to the next step. Titles or usernames are not always remembered correctly to find the request again. Even just the last request opened would be helpful.
