  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. 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.

  3. Add a Mark Found/Scan Now button to borrowing requests

    This button is in Lending and DocDel. Often we find items online or they are delivered via Email from the lender. It would be so much quicker and easier to open the request and hit a Mark Found Scan Now button to import the document instead of going out of the request and opening the Electronic Delivery/Borrowing Scanning. It would save a number of clicks and steps and time.

  5. In ILLiad 9.1, allow locally controlled automatic logins to the OCLC Service Config from the ILLiad interface.

    It seems that in ILLiad 9.1, the OCLC Resource Sharing Settings Module (containing access to Custom Holdings Paths and Groups, Direct Request, etc.) will be replaced by a link out to the OCLC Service Configuration to access that content.

    That link out will prompt users to log in with their OCLC Service Configuration. Could we allow automatic logins, that are set locally (to some users but not others)?

    The automatic logins would save time for those of us who update Custom Holdings fairly frequently.

    The ability to locally control which usernames get automatic logins to the OCLC Service Config would…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  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. 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.

  10. 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).

  12. Add RequestType to default IFM ILLiad reports

    Purdue University needs to break down IFM charges by RequesType for internal reporting. Having this in the default reports would be very helpful. We'd like to see it for both Lending and Borrowing.

  13. Enable auto-population of citation information thru the users' Lending login

    To better serve former Loansome Doc users (as well as others), it would be helpful to have the ability to auto-populate the citation information thru the lending login. This feature exists in the borrowing login. It's easier for our patrons and more accurate for our staff than having patrons fill in the information manually or email it to staff.

  14. 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.

  16. Enable automatic Odyssey coversheets for borrowing

    There is currently a function that allows a custom coversheet to be inserted automatically before Odyssey sending for Borrowing & Document Delivery, but not for Lending. It would be great from the lending library’s standpoint since we’d be more compliant in terms of copyright & licenses if we could include the Title 17 notice there, and any usage restrictions. It would also be great for the borrowing library’s standpoint since Odyssey is a more direct delivery method than Article Exchange

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. ILLiad stub accounts made when users fail to complete the registration process should be assigned to an NVTGC in use.

    When an ILLiad stub account gets made due to incomplete registration it should not be assigned to a site not in use like "ILL." Allow users to configure what site/NVTGC those stub accounts should be assigned to.
