  2. When choosing a lender

    When choosing a lender when hovering over a symbol have the state pop up along with the Universities name. Will expedite loans when we can choose institutions within a specific area.

  3. Add a button or link to get addons from the client

    Like the "Get Add-ins" button in Outlook, it would be nice to have more visibility in ILLiad for the addons that directly links folks to the addon directory in the docs.

  4. Printdocumentspath etc - Allow for the use of cloud based drives like Box, Dropbox, OneDrive

    When ILLiad needs to access shared documents like those often in the PrintDocumentsPath, allow for the use of cloud drives like Box, DropBox, and OneDrive.

  5. Allow multiple different email templates based on different reasons for Disavowing patrons from Patrons to Clear

    We've had a spate of local users accidentally filling out Proxy forms, as well as unaffiliated users trying to create accounts using the Proxy form. It would save a lot of time and confusion if we could select reasons and different pre-made disavow templates like we can elsewhere in ILLiad

  6. Expand the borrowing statuses in which patron cannot cancel.

    Not sure if this goes in the web interface. We have some custom queues we use for items that we've already ordered and do not want to have the ability for a patron to cancel. Right now can only specify cannot cancel if item is in the "Request Sent" status.

  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.

  8. Phone field in the address book add extension field or allow for more characters

    The current field cannot accommodate phone extensions; they get cut off.

  11. Find a way to remove duplicate odyssey articles

    Sometimes folks have lots of extra articles cluttering up the Odyssey Received folder. Would be nice to have some way of identifying duplicates and removing after a user specified time.

  12. Bring back the autofill when typing in notes

    ILLiad used to autofill notes that had already been used in the current session. You could just type the first few letters and the note would come up.

  13. Adjust API to allow non-boolean values to be posted into the Rush field.

    After working with the developers, it was discovered that the BillingServiceLevel table determines the dropdown options for the Rush field in the Transactions table, but the API can only take Yes or No values when creating a transaction. We would like the API to take the same values that are possible using the web and staff client.

  14. Groups functionality--tie group with Lender address records

    It would be helpful if assigning a library to particular group would also update values in the lender address record such as the Default Shipping Method or Billing Categories or Priority Shipping.

  15. Add the ability to anonymize ILLiad transactions

    There have been requests for a tool to allow sites to anonymize ILLiad transactions similar to the old break the user link scripts. Would like to be able to preserve stats while maintaining confidentiality for patrons.

  16. Adjust note fields to fit content

    I always have to adjust the column width of the notes in ILLiad so that I can actually read the notes. ILLiad should adjust the width automatically to fit the content so that the Note Date and Added By fields are only wide enough for that data and the actual Note field is wide enough to allow staff to read the notes. Specifically I need to look at the notes when returning borrowed items, but this feature would be helpful on every screen.

  17. Remove editing options for admin Lending and Unmatched user accounts.

    Johns Hopkins had a mishap where the Lending user for one of the shared server sites had its NVTGC changed in the Location dropdown in the Staff Client. This moved all of the site's Lending requests into the other site's view. Perhaps we could consider removing the ability to edit the "Lending User" accounts and the Unmatched accounts.

  18. Re-design how RUSH requests are auto-routed and assign service level

    Lending to Rush University (Docline symbol ILURUS/OCLC symbol IDL) and every request comes into the Awaiting RUSH Request Processing queue inaccurately assigning a service level to Docline tickets that don't have that service level. Ticket 5397

  19. Support automatic / silent installation of the ILLiad client

    Please provide a .msi installer to allow modest customization and easy silent installation via different system management systems e.g. AD, SCCM, KACE, etc.

  20. ILLiad / Aeon integration - ability to send a note with the request

    When sending a request from ILLiad to Aeon, we can only send the request and information in the fields. It would greatly improve communication if we could add a Note to the request when sending it (similar to a Conditional or Cancellation message).
