  1. Allow for custom workflows in reporting

    Some institutions have custom workflows that cause ILLiad custom reports not to work properly for statistics. Ticket #7411 requests that we find a way to accommodate requests not going through "Request in Processing" on the lending side.

  2. API functionality include renewal requests from patrons

    The ILLiad API is great because patrons can view all their requests local and ILL in one place but this is really read only. It would be very helpful for the API to also allow for renewal requests or to support a renewal request via NCIP.

  3. Ability to remove loan information from web pages.

    Many libraries take advantage of NCIP integration with their ILS and thus manage loans (due dates and renewals) directly with their ILS, thus patrons are encouraged not to log into ILLiad web pages to perform those tasks. However, there is no easy way to remove or hide that from the web pages.

  4. Set web session timeout by patron type/status

    From customer: We have a faculty member complaining about the web session. We have it set at 10 minutes since so many of our patrons use shared/pubic workstations. Is there any way to individualize web session times by patron type?

  8. Ability to delete and correct pdf - same as tif images

    Ex. Borrower received article on 7/13 and that one was delivered to web, but then they received it again on 7/16 from the same lender. That time it was a duplicate, and it was stuck at 'unmatched' in the OdysseyReceived table in the database, so every time they hit Electronic Delivery it would come in for them to match it and deliver it.

    Usually if a site receives a wrong TIF file that is unmatched, they should use the "delete all" button in the electronic delivery screen in the client. That will change the OdysseyReceived table entry to "Deleted" and…

  9. Client fields for Transaction vs Database Fields - all should be available

    There are several fields in the Transactions table of the ILLiad database that show up on the Borrowing Request form, but not on the Check in from Lending Library form, or vice versa. Examples: "Priority Shipping" shows up on Borrowing Request form, but not Check In form "Handle With Care" shows up on Check In form, but not Borrowing Request form. These items also do not show up on the list of fields available when customizing form layouts. Is there another way to add them to a form? If not, is there a reason for this inconsistency?
    User would like…

  10. ILLiad / Aeon integration - reduce clicks by streamlining processes

    It would be ideal if when Aeon staff cancel an Aeon request received from ILL / ILLiad the request would also auto-cancel in ILLIad as well, so the ILL staff would not have to cancel once more.

  11. Allow the document type to be set on default ILLiad web forms

    Use case: A library would like to offer the option for patrons to request a loan in ebook format and process through the Occam's Reader addon. We have set this up as an option with an Item Info field currently, but it would be helpful to be able to use Document Type where this info seems to live more naturally. The other workaround considered was changing the default loan form for GenericRequestLoan but this seemed like a lot of extra work (include_menus, OpenURL Mapping, Validation, etc.) just to add a new value. So if we ever get to make changes…

  12. Allow ILLiad to receive a renewal request once it has been requested in ILS, so that ILLiad can request the renewal from the lending library

    If items from other libraries are checked out to users in the ILS, when that user places a renewal request, ILLiad needs to know about it so it can ask the lending library for a renewal.

  13. 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.

  14. Update lending pages to same style as the other Updated Default Pages

    This is necessary because there are multiple ILLiad lending pages that need to be completed for new web tune ups. The changes between the default pages and the updated defaults are different enough that it would be difficult to repeat the changes for each customization as they come in. It will be much easier to have the same starting point for lending pages as we do for borrowing pages.

  17. Make Wanted By/Service Type field on request form consistently say Wanted By

    This will allow that field to save when edited. The Service Type label is very very old and doesn't reflect any database field names.

  18. Allow borrowing articles to deliver immediately via trusted sender and auto bill the default amount to the user

    If every user is always charged $x for an article, there is no reason for staff to mediate those. The billing could be added and the article delivered to the user.

  20. Treat Checked Out to ILL Staff the same as Checked Out to Customer in the staff client

    Currently, Checked Out to ILL Staff behaves like a processing queue in the staff client versus like Checked Out to Customer. So Request Sent shows as an option versus the standard options for a checked out item.
