  1. Ability to select which ILLiad field that RAPID call numbers and locations populate.

    We love the electronic links and holdings information that RAPID auto-populates in our ILLiad lending requests, but we currently use our call number and location fields differently in our ILLiad instance. It would be great to be able to decide which fields the links and holdings information from RAPID would populate.

  2. Pre-populate the ILLiad loan request form with values from the patron search in ReShare

    When a user gets an "End of ROTA " notification from the PALCI/EZ Borrow system (on REShare platform), pre-populate the ILLiad loan request form with the values from the patron's search.

  9. Ability to reorder web Alerts so they appear in a different order on the web page

    Ability to choose the order in which the alerts appear on the web pages. This includes the #SYSTEMALERTS, #USERALERTS,#STATUSALERTS alerts.

  10. Add an automated password reset for staff ILLiad client passwords

    Allow staff to reset their own passwords when they forget them for the ILLiad client (similar to user password reset functions via web). "Forgot Password"? for the client interface rather than another staff person having to go into Staff Manager to reset it manually.

  11. Make barcodes more usable/searchable in the ILLiad client

    Expand the ItemNumber field in ILLiad to accommodate multiple barcodes for multi-volume sets. Add ItemNumber to the default Number search in the ILLiad ribbon for easy access. Add ItemNumber to fields searched by TN/ILL # search on Check Item In interface.

    All of the above would allow more efficient handling of borrowing returns when paperwork with Transaction is missing.

  12. Option to "Undo Conditional"

    We would love to have an option to "Undo Conditional" for those times when we realize too late that a conditional was unnecessary. This would be helpful if, for example, we send a "Non-circulating" conditional before realizing the request is for an article, or conditionalize for "Not as cited," then we find the citation. There are any number of situations where we may miss information in a request and send a conditional, then realize it was unnecessary. Even if this is only possible until the Connection Manager runs, it would be a very useful feature. Thanks!

  14. Collapse the Electronically Received, Checked Out Items, and Outstanding Requests menus and all their items on the main patron web page

    Ability to collapse the listings under a link for each of under the categories of Electronically Received, Checked Out Items, and Outstanding Requests on the main page rather than listing all possible requests under each category. This would match the style for "Cancelled" and "Completed Requests" and also take up less room on the main page if the patron has a lot of requests in one or both categories. Otherwise, the patron needs to scroll through all three (3) category listings to get to the bottom of the listing.

  15. Make sure all accounts that log in with past Expiration Dates must go through the Expired Users page and update their information

    Users with old expired stub accounts are not prompted to update their information when logging into their ILLiad accounts again. The account status goes from Cleared=NEW to Cleared=NO, and ExpirationDate isn't checked/updated because the account was technically already created.

    We need ILLiad to check whether an account is expired or overwriting an existing expiration date. Having a patron from 2012 able to submit requests without updating their contact information or preferences is a real problem for us -- patrons can and do change their email addresses, and we allow patrons to choose to have loans delivered to their home if…

  16. Billing Manager: send .pdf invoices via email

    Billing manager is great for print invoices, but we would like a more integrated way to send email invoices through Billing Manager. Currently, we generate the invoices and then have to break them into individual .pdfs before sending via email or regular mail. It would be great if there was a one click solution to just send the invoice via email to each library.

  17. Adding a notification about no ILL number matches

    Adding a notification to when a No ILL Number Match comes in to ILLIAD to be received. Currently there is no notification about unmatched items. So I have to set reminders a couple of times a day to go in and check the electronic delivery screen to make sure I am not missing anything.

  18. Conditionally display due date on All Requests web page

    On the All Requests page in ILLiad patron web interface, make the display in the “Request Finished” (or similar) status appear without the due date, while the others retain them.

  19. Use regexp to parse values for OpenURLMapping

    This would allow staff users to specify certain pieces of a parsed values in OpenURL to be imported into the ILLiad record with a clean data format.

  20. Allow for different error messages based on response from LDAP server

    This would allow site administrators to configure different status line responses for login attempts based on the LDAP error response so that patrons can know if they had invalid credentials or exceeded login attempts.
