  1. Allow API to update existing users

    This is similar to the request to "update user account by pulling user data from org directories via Single Sign on"

  2. Creating a customization key for choosing where temporary files are stored.

    Discovered there is trouble merging templates from shared drives, so being able to choose temporary files to go to another location would be ideal.

  3. Improve user experience on first create a group in Groups Maintenance

    When no groups exist, the Groups Maintenance interface has no active options.
    https://www.screencast.com/t/iXDdQokIBG9G

    Users must start typing in a group name in order to activate the options in the ribbon. This functionality is not very intuitive; it is different than the functionality experienced after the groups have been added; it is also different from the way that similar functionality is designed in other parts of the product.

    Having all ribbon options active prior to adding a group would provide a more intuitive experience for the user.

    See support ticket #10412

  4. Ability to display borrower group on Lending requests

    The borrowing library's shipping options and address # are displayed; given this, it seems like we should be able to display their Groups as well.

    This would make it easier to check for consortial memberships when verifying max cost or shipping methods.

  5. Allow ILLiad to pull in Language code or other info from OCLC records

    If ILLiad could include the language code from a record (when available), it would help us know who to refer to when we needed assistance and to get better statistics on what languages we are supporting.

    Similarly, pulling in subject headings would be really useful for referring to our liaison librarians and for consideration with acquisitions funds; right now we have to base these off of the department of the requester, but we're missing cross-departmental opportunities this way.

  6. When non-OCLC library creates an LWeb account, have a registration workflow built in to check legitimacy before they can submit requests

    We want non-OCLC libraries to be able to create their own accounts, and to be able to make that process more transparent. However, right now, anyone can create an account and immediately place requests.

    After catching some illegitimate requests entered in this way we made a routing rule to review LWeb requests, but it would be better to have the workflow built into the system, so we can better manage approving, expiring, blocking, and communicating with non-OCLC libraries.

  7. Set the addon interval per server addon

    It would be nice to be able to set the interval or specific time(s) that each server addon runs, rather than have them all run at the same interval. Some that I have only need to run once a day, while others need to run constantly.

  8. Unattended configuration of Atlas SQL Alias Manager

    There is currently (according to Atlas Systems support) no method for setting a logon.dbc file as the default for ILLiad (and related applications) in a scripted/automated/unattended manner. When setting up large numbers of computers, this would be a handy feature.

  9. expanded off-times (lower case) flexibility.

    Copy RAPID's off-times where we can set off times by time as well as by date. We also had a need for a more immediate closure before the 24 hour limit where we had to close for a hurricane. It would have been nice to set the non-lender status closer to the event instead of putting it a day later.

  10. Add Captcha challenge to login and password reset pages

    Captcha might prevent the recent scripted logins which are resulting in fraudulent lending requests.

  11. Book Chapters - send Article Constant Data instead of Loan

    Ticket 6277. Book Chapter requests are using OCLC Loan Constant Data instead of Article. Would like to use article constant data for book chapters.

  12. Alert when an installed add-on is updated

    If an installed add-on has a new version, be alerted (via either a popup in the client or even via subscription through email).

  13. Title in Borrowing Check In from Lending Library

    From the Check In from Lending Library screen you can update most of the information before checking in. For some reason you can't currently change the title without opening the request. This causes any changes that have been made to the request (due date, restrictions, special notes) to be lost. I need to change the title regularly to remove notes to the lending library that we often put in the title field. Being able to delete these notes from the Check In from Lending Library screen would be very helpful!

  15. When choosing a lender

    When choosing a lender when hovering over a symbol have the state pop up along with the Universities name. Will expedite loans when we can choose institutions within a specific area.

  16. Add a button or link to get addons from the client

    Like the "Get Add-ins" button in Outlook, it would be nice to have more visibility in ILLiad for the addons that directly links folks to the addon directory in the docs.

  17. Allow multiple different email templates based on different reasons for Disavowing patrons from Patrons to Clear

    We've had a spate of local users accidentally filling out Proxy forms, as well as unaffiliated users trying to create accounts using the Proxy form. It would save a lot of time and confusion if we could select reasons and different pre-made disavow templates like we can elsewhere in ILLiad

  18. Expand the borrowing statuses in which patron cannot cancel.

    Not sure if this goes in the web interface. We have some custom queues we use for items that we've already ordered and do not want to have the ability for a patron to cancel. Right now can only specify cannot cancel if item is in the "Request Sent" status.

  19. Ability to have separate Lending constant data for different formats

    Ability to create separate Lending constant data for different formats. Life for example, only lend a/v for less time than a regular book and renewal versus non renewal. Then when update, click on a drop down menu for the constant data and scan in all items that apply, then process that queue. Then can do other formats the same way.

  20. Phone field in the address book add extension field or allow for more characters

    The current field cannot accommodate phone extensions; they get cut off.
