  1. Improve functionality of the patron's search results webpage

    We would like to see improvements to the ILLiad search results webpage. These improvements would benefit all users, but particularly those users with a large number of requests or lengthy user history. Some suggestions provide by users:

    A method to reorder results in ascending and descending order.
    A method to limit/filter results by various values, such as Document Type.
    A method to limit/filter results by date received and/or date finished.
    A method to sort requests alphabetically, such as by title or author.

    Thanks!

  3. Restrict access to Policies Directory in Staff Manager

    We would like to restrict access to the Policies Directory in the ILLIad client by adding permission levels to staff users. Currently this link is available to any staff including student workers who are using the ILLiad client to process requests. We have recently had an issue with a student worker changing our Policies Directory without our knowledge.

    The change would inactivate or hide the link to the Policies Directory if the user's permissions did allow for that access.

  5. Incoming Lending RapidR to reflect default Renewal setting in Customization Manager

    Incoming Lending RapidR requests in ILLiad are set to be "No Renewal" by default. We wanted to change it since we now allow renewals, yet our Loan labels print as "No Renewal." A borrowing library pointed out that it is confusing when they process Receives.

    I was told by OCLC and Rapid (Exlibris) that RapidR requests do not reflect the "LendingRestrictDefault" keys for Renewals, Photocopying, and Library Use Only in Customization Manager.

    I wish Lending RapidR requests could reflect these default values the same as OCLC Loan requests in ILLiad.

  6. SymCirAddon - final step should be removal of bib record created

    The final step in this Addon should be the removal of the bib record when held item is returned (Checked-in) or when due date is reached (if the item on Hold is not picked up by the patron).

  7. Allow copyright payment via CCC for document delivery requests, not just borrowing requests.

    Currently document delivery requests aren't hooked up to CCC, so we cannot submit CCC payments for doc del requests via ILLiad, and instead have to manually log into the CCC via a browser and manually input the requests for which we are paying copyright fees. It would be helpful if doc del requests could follow the same workflow as borrowing requests for the CCC integration.

  8. Auto due date/overdue reminders should continue, even after an item has reached "very overdue"

    If an item gets to the stage of "very overdue" in ILLiad and then the item is renewed, I've noticed that ILLiad's auto-reminders stop going forward. It would be nice if they continued to be sent, adjusting for the new due date, regardless of the previous overdue history

  9. staff manager

    We know this exists in the Aeon staff manager, but don’t see a way to do so in ILLIad. This is a functional gap between the two products.

    We would like to be able to display the Description field in the columned display. We find it useful when reviewing staff accounts in order to address staffing changes, etc.

  10. Allow borrowing library to update OCLC Status to RECIEVED if still in CONSIDERING status

    It would be really helpful if borrowing libraries could update the OCLC Status to Received if the lending library forgets to update the request to Shipped, but the borrower receives the item anyway. We then have to contact the lending library and hope that they update the status to Shipped before the request expires. Even having a warning message pop up in ILLiad when trying to check the item in that says the status is CONSIDERING would be incredibly helpful.

  12. Customize List of Queues in Route Button Dropdown List

    {Submitted by Kerry on behalf of customer}

    UC Boulder would like the ability to customize which queues appear and in which order they appear in the Routing button's dropdown list in the ILLiad Client. The site does not use many of the default queues that appear in the dropdown list and wishes that it was possible to make their more frequently used queues easier to access.

    They would like to be able to:

    General Wishes:
    *Suppress default queues.
    *Rearrange the order of all available queues, without the forced separation between default queues and custom queues.

    Unicorn wish:
    *Have the ability…

  13. Allow the use of an FQDN instead of IP Address in Customization Manager for Odyssey and ISO

    We have a custom CNAME that we redirect when we replace a server so that we don't have to update links. It would be so much easier if we could use that instead of the IP Address in Customization Manager when configuring Odyssey and ISO so that we don't have to go in and update it when doing a server replacement.

  14. Settings to disable patron info sent via ISO ILL messages

    Some libraries have been migrating away from Worldshare and Illiad, but would like to remain connected to their ILLiad partners using ISO ILL via Illiad.

    It would be helpful for ILLiad libraries to have settings within the customization manager that help manage borrowing request information sent to these partners--particularly in relation to patron information.

  15. CrossRef

    Develop CrossRef as an addon, for when a partial citation is provided without a DOI. An article title search can be conducted in CrossRef; being able to then copy and paste the DOI into the DOI field would helpful. If the article title could somehow be automatically exported to the addon and then the selected CrossRef DOI be imported into the request DOI field, that would be even better!

  17. Connect to local catalogs in WorldShare

    We were formerly with an ILS that could be connected to within ILLiad using the Z39.50 option, but since switching to OCLC WorldShare's Discovery catalog there is no option to be able to search our local catalog within ILLiad. Atlas should consider adding an option for the Discovery tool to be added and work the same way the Z39.50 worked.

  19. Show WorldShare's "Lost" button in received borrowing loan requests

    WorldShare has a "Lost" button that appears on all all Received loans (including overdue items and those in any renewal status, even renewal denied). When you click the "Lost" button, the item moves to "RECEIVED_MISSING" in OCLC, which makes it much easier for the lending library to close the transaction once they receive the replacement payment for a lost item.

    It would be helpful to have the ability to choose "Lost" on the OCLC record directly within ILLiad, in the OCLC ribbon alongside Complete/Receive/Not Received/Return/etc.

  20. Add a refresh button to the ILLiad user - Requests tab.

    It would be nice if you could refresh the status and number of requests in an ILLiad user (request tab) without a close/reopen.
