  2. Include Display Status in any call to the API that returns a Transaction Status

    Currently, Display Statuses are not returned with Transaction Status information when using the API.

    Our library is using the API to integrate ILLiad into the patron account interface; it would be very helpful to be able to use the Display Status table to mask the queue names.

  3. Proxy User Functionality

    We have teaching assistants/administrative assistants/research assistants who are asked to request materials on behalf of an other ILLiad user. It would be helpful if a proxy account could be created for these assistants to create the request, but for the primary user to be responsible for the item (loan) and notified of delivery (article).

  4. Skip Library Button

    It would be nice if there was an option to skip an institution in your lender string if it's been 3/4 days (for example) and the library has still not even opened the request. At present, if your patron is in a hurry, you have to cancel the entire ILL request and send out a new one to omit the library that is seemingly unresponsive.

  6. Checked out items

    When you were in a patrons record you used to be able to check a box and see everything that was checked out to them and now it is no longer available it would be great if that feature came back.

  8. Allow us to adjust the number of times a journal is requested before it appears on our copyright list.

    If CONTU is not law, and our institution decides that 10 requests is the definition of replacing a subscription, we should be able to change a setting in ILLiad so that we can easily follow our own guideline, rather than ignoring the list and reconciling all titles at the end of the year.

  9. Include the Renewal button for each request on the ILLiad Main Menu by default

    Renewing is more streamlined if you can see the Renewal button for each request on ILLiad Main Menu. Please include in the next batch of default web pages to be released, or as an easy alternative.

    Currently possible with additional web work.

  10. Ability to upload request from Reference Citation service

    Our researchers often use Reference Citation services such as RefWorks, EndNote or Zotero to create bibliographies. We would like for them to have the ability to upload a batch/list of items from a service like this or from an excel spreadsheet.

  12. Disable trusted sender at the TN or patron level in borrowing

    I'd like the ability to disable trusted sender (thereby having to download and send an article to the patron manually) for specific transactions or specific patrons, not just specific lenders. Disabling trusted sender at the TN level would help for cases where the patron has specifically requested a color/high resolution/accessible copy. I prefer to review these files before having them reach the patron so they don't feel like their request was ignored if the message was missed by the lender.

    I think being able to disable trusted sender at the patron level would help smooth relationships with patrons who are…

  13. Search for Update Stacks Searching and Check-In from Lending Library

    Change the search option in the ribbons for Update Stacks Search and Check In from Lending Library to be on search field that searches both TN and ILL Number, similar to search option on the Check In from patron form.

  14. DOI - improve DOI searching options

    Instructor wants to just put in a DOI for an article request and feels that since that is a unique identifier for an article that it should be all he needs to enter. Make this work unmediated, either via an enhancement or via an addon, that would be really great! Ticket 5983

  16. Lender Addresses with Invoices that are Active

    Lender Addresses linked to Invoices that are Active (even those marked Paid) cannot merge with another address. The only option currently is to manually change or delete invoices first. Please consider allowing Paid invoices to not be considered "Active

  17. 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.

  18. Time zones

    Let users of the client set their local time zone, so that it can be reflected in the History of requests

  19. 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.

  20. Connection Manager

    Make sure the Connection Manager does a full check of the Pending status during each cycle run and not just after midnight or after a service restart. This is from ticket 10049.
