  1. Printing Multiple Requests from a Queue--Simplify Process

    Ability to select and print multiple requests from a queue without having to navigate through the merge template process. While it is possible to use the Print Selected Requests option from the Process ribbon, the process requires manually opening a template and completing a merge process.

    Ideally, the process would work like other batch printing processes where users are prompted to view/edit a word merge template.

  2. Streamlined patron load/registration functionality and updating of records

    Add functionality to reduce the amount of information a patron has to enter upon registration if the institution already has that info via some other authentication system or other service/database while still getting it into the patron record. Also update patron records if the data in the primary source changes.

  4. Have the Patron ID number viewable on the request page.

    Currently, you can only see the patron's name, address, status, delivery methods on the patron tab in Borrowing. You have to use the "View User" button to access the patron's ID number. This would help eliminate a step when you need the ID number for accessing library accounts and fines in an ILS.

  5. 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.

  6. Make "terminal" statuses customizable

    We have some statuses that are effectively terminal (eg "Supplied via consortial system"). However, these will remain in patrons' Active Requests in the web interface forever, unless they are moved to Request Finished or Cancelled by ILL Staff. It would be great to be able to add to what statuses are considered no-longer-active.

  7. Ability to have separate Lending constant data for different formats

    Ability to create separate Lending constant data for different formats. Life for example, only lend a/v for less time than a regular book and renewal versus non renewal. Then when update, click on a drop down menu for the constant data and scan in all items that apply, then process that queue. Then can do other formats the same way.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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"

  19. 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.

  20. 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
