  3. Docline/ILLiad

    It would be so nice if ILLiad/Docline would integrate better. Processing Docline requests in ILLiad is too much back and forth. it would nice to see a pop-up notification when requests are unfilled in Docline or if it worked like special messages in OCLC.

  4. Allow FORMSTATE tag to persist through webpage workarounds.

    When a workaround is used on the webpages to display something outside of the usual ILLiad workflow, it breaks the tag and doesn't allow OpenURL to route the user back to their request. Ideally, the formstate would persist through the workaround, and the user would be routed back to their request instead of dropped onto the main menu.

  5. 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"

  6. 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

  8. Simplify renewals processing in both borrowing and lending

    Can the due date in the "Renewed by Customer to MM/DD/YYYY" queue be copied automatically into the Due Date Field in the Transactions table so staff don't have to do this manually (and and NCIP message be sent too if needed). If we do automatic renewal processing in Lending, when a request comes in can it have it's due date automatically updated rather than staff having to push a button?

  10. Add a back button to DOCLINE ribbon

    Add a Back button on docline ribbon. It is unclear that users can hit the backspace button - especially since this kind of functionality lends itself more to "browsing" so people might want to go back to a previous screen.

  12. Ability to batch delete notes from a request

    Sometimes, when interacting with different pieces, the system will add hundreds of copies of the same note (usually one every ten minutes) before a staff person catches that it got stuck. Then, these many duplicate system notes make it hard to see actual relevant notes. Currently notes can only be deleted one at a time which is not at all feasible in these cases. It would be great to be able to select multiple notes on a request and delete them at the same time.

  13. 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.

  14. Enhance the MARC record display in WorldCat searching

    It would be great to add features from OCLC Connexion's MARC display to the display of MARC records in ILLiad. We'd like to see the value in 040 subfield b (language of cataloging) displayed in a column in search results to quickly narrow down the potential correct record for an item. It would also be really helpful to right-click on a MARC tag to go to the OCLC site for a definition of that field. Modeling the MARC display after the great features in Connexion would really help with efficient searching.

  15. 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.

  17. Printdocumentspath etc - Allow for the use of cloud based drives like Box, Dropbox, OneDrive

    When ILLiad needs to access shared documents like those often in the PrintDocumentsPath, allow for the use of cloud drives like Box, DropBox, and OneDrive.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
