  1. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Time zones

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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"

  13. 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.

  15. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
