  1. Allow API to truncate field lengths needed for acceptance

    The way the API currently functions is that if an entry in a field is too long for the database to receive the call falls. It would be nice if the API was able to truncate the field to the appropriate length so the call would still go through but the offending field would be automatically trimmed to the needed length.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. Allow API to Add, Remove, and Update records in the UserValidation table

    Stanford U is locally hosted and has a custom job that imports users directly into the Users table. This job will update users based on any change event triggered in the Registrar's database. It creates many users that never end up using ILLiad. We would like a standard method of creating a process that pushes users into the UserValidation table and can update users, regardless of their being in the Validation table or in the Users table.

  9. 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"

  10. 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.

  11. Improve user experience on first create a group in Groups Maintenance

    When no groups exist, the Groups Maintenance interface has no active options.
    https://www.screencast.com/t/iXDdQokIBG9G

    Users must start typing in a group name in order to activate the options in the ribbon. This functionality is not very intuitive; it is different than the functionality experienced after the groups have been added; it is also different from the way that similar functionality is designed in other parts of the product.

    Having all ribbon options active prior to adding a group would provide a more intuitive experience for the user.

    See support ticket #10412

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Set the addon interval per server addon

    It would be nice to be able to set the interval or specific time(s) that each server addon runs, rather than have them all run at the same interval. Some that I have only need to run once a day, while others need to run constantly.

  15. Unattended configuration of Atlas SQL Alias Manager

    There is currently (according to Atlas Systems support) no method for setting a logon.dbc file as the default for ILLiad (and related applications) in a scripted/automated/unattended manner. When setting up large numbers of computers, this would be a handy feature.

  16. expanded off-times (lower case) flexibility.

    Copy RAPID's off-times where we can set off times by time as well as by date. We also had a need for a more immediate closure before the 24 hour limit where we had to close for a hurricane. It would have been nice to set the non-lender status closer to the event instead of putting it a day later.

  17. Add Captcha challenge to login and password reset pages

    Captcha might prevent the recent scripted logins which are resulting in fraudulent lending requests.

  19. Alert when an installed add-on is updated

    If an installed add-on has a new version, be alerted (via either a popup in the client or even via subscription through email).

  20. 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!
