  1. User expiration by status

    Ability to control user expiration based on User status i.e. I don't want Faculty accounts to expire. Or only expire undergraduate accounts.

  2. strip extra characters out of PMID field when receiving from Pubmed via OpenURL

    The OpenURL generated by Pubmed has the PMID field sent as:
    &rft_id=info%3Apmid%2F26824237
    which puts extra info in front of the PMID value. This means staff have to touch each request and clean it up before searching it. It would be great if the OpenURLMapping table could have an option to strip characters from a value or some other means to clean up that field when it carries over.

  3. Import complete information (esp. Publisher) from OCLC into ILLiad when sending request

    Currently ILLiad imports the title field from sent OCLC requests. It would be great if it imported more info such as the journal publisher. We are constantly asked for details of how many Publisher X or Publisher Y journal articles were requested through borrowing. We can't provide the info because the patron doesn't supply it and ILLiad doesn't import it (and manually doing it for our volume of requests is too time consuming).

  4. Hard to tell when Editing vs Copying a row in Customization Manager tables

    When working in the OpenURLMapping table, we noticed it really is impossible to tell if you're in the "Copy" or "Edit" mode because the ID value doesn't show up in either of them. We'd expect it to show while in Edit mode, but be blank in Copy mode.

    In general, when working with a table in the customization manager, it gets very confusing when you think you hit Copy but then worry you may have hit Edit instead since the opened row says "Edit Row" either way. If there was some way to indicate better whether you were in Copy…

  6. iOS app for ILLiad on iPad

    Please develop an ILLiad app for iOS on iPad. It would greatly ease some of the difficulties our workers have doing their job remotely.

  7. Copy Layout & Grid Settings - Separate Borrowing, Doc Del, and Lending

    In the Staff Manager, please adjust the granularity of the Copy Layout & Grid Settings by Borrowing, Doc Del, and Lending. If I make major changes to the Borrowing layout, I'd like to be able to copy those changes to the relevant student employees & staff, but not overwrite their layouts in DocDel and Lending. It would be very helpful if we could indicate which layouts to change and which to retain in these different areas of ILLiad.

  8. Warning re: Multiple Pieces in Web Circ

    Add a prompt or warning when an item which has multiple pieces is updated to Mark Returned in Web Circ so that staff are alerted to the fact that more than one items should be returned with that request.

  9. Allow deletion of unmatched electronic delivery

    Sometimes items with a status of Delivered to Web will reroute back into electronic delivery. The item is then stuck in the "No ILL Lender Match" box and can't be be deleted or permanently rerouted back to Delivered to Web. Each time this happens OCLC support has to manually delete the transaction. ILL staff should have the ability to delete. Or, the bug that reroutes transactions back into electronic delivery needs to be patched.

  11. Improve design of Customization Manager for Shared Server Sites

    Because a user selects a site in the Home ribbon, it is not clear that tabs and configurations made for Z39.50, Notification Templates Server Addons and DSP apply to all sites.

    This used to be more clear when these options were available at the Ribbon level.

    It would also be helpful to remove the ILL selection option from the Home ribbon for Shared Server installations to avoid confusion when editing key and table entries.

  12. Upgrade Forgot Password to Forgot Login

    some users do not recall their username, so we are wondering if the Forgot Password feature would ever upgrade and offer other options such as allowing input of email address or alternative options between forgot password vs. forgot username and etc.

  13. staff password complexity description

    Add a field to the StaffPasswordComplexity field to allow a plain text description of the regular expression. A user should able to view what the password requirements for staff passwords are without having knowledge of regular expressions.

  14. Clear browser cache

    Grant us the ability to clear previously entered browser data and the web cache within the "Docline request web browser window" in the illiad client, perhaps at the very least add a back button?

    This lack of functionality can be particularly problematic with Docline's new multipath sign-on feature. A user in the illiad client could enter a "valid" login, like say their facebook, google, or institution's SSO credentials, which would pass thru the gateway, but still wouldn't be authorized with Docline. Locking them out docline but having no easy way to change their credentials to the "correct" login.

    So far…

  15. Stop the Electronic Delivery Utility from trying to deliver hidden files/files that haven't fully saved yet

    We recently set up an external software to add OCR to our files; the workflow is to save the files to an input folder, and for the software to process the files and move them to the OdysseyTemp File folder for Electronic Delivery Utility to update ILLiad and deliver. This should work really well -- except Electronic Delivery Utility frequently tries to deliver the files before they have fully saved. It fails, and then will not try to process the files again unless you close and re-open the program.

    We've also seen Electronic Delivery Utility fail to deliver larger files,…

  16. ILLiad Aeon integration: send scan files back to ILLiad for request fulfillment

    We use ILLiad to Aeon integration to facilitate Special Collections scanning for ILL lending. When we send a scan request via ILLiad to Aeon, we would like the ability for Aeon to pass the .pdf back to ILLiad for request fulfillment. Currently, Aeon staff have to email the .pdf to ILL staff in order for the file to get uploaded to ILLiad for ILL delivery. This would be similar to the Ares/ILLiad integration: we pass scans to ILLiad from Ares for scanning fulfillment through OpenURL.

  17. API method to get requests based on other parameters besides User

    Extend the Web API to include methods that will return data of requests made on parameter like RequestType and RequestDate. This would enable the interfacing of ILLiad data with other database systems.

  19. Auto update for Custom Groups

    Auto update of Custom Group when using exact name of the OCLC Group Access Capability (GAC), such as ACOV. Manually adding individual codes for all of us seems redundant.

  20. Enable an end of semester due date change function

    It would be great if I could, through the Customization Manager or the client, set a Due Date Override so that I could make everything due before the end of the semester for specific patron groups (Undergraduates go far away over winter break and don't give their stuff back, but Staff are here year round)
