Ideas in the Planning Stages

Select multiple items from search results to place holds

23

Our patrons would like to be able to select multiple items from a search results page and place holds on all of them rather than having to go through several steps for each one.

(Also - place them on a list as in http://masslnc.org/node/3132, and also print the selected ones or export them as a CSV)

Edit Activation Date option while Placing Hold

17

When placing a hold that the patron does not want in a while, please create an option to edit the activation date right on the request page.

"I was creating a list from the PAC the other day. What a pain! I would love to be able to check the items on a single PAC page that I want and THEN load them to a list. Any chance?"

Provide a way to search report templates by title, keyword and tag

22

We have lots of report templates and despite our best efforts to label them and organize them into folders, it's still hard to find the right one.  It's actually pretty easy to run a report once you have found the right template, but I think the complications of trying to figure out which template you need is a real barrier for our users.

Need Ability to Place Multiple Holds Simultaneously

38

We need the ability to place multiple title level holds simultaneously on a bib record. The most common use cases are for patrons (or staff, for that matter) needing multiple copies of a title for a book discussion group or for classroom use. Read more »

Alternate patron names

22

Patron Records: We would like the ability to store one or more alternate name fields. This would make it easier to find records under former names or different configurations of the same name

Improve workflow for marking items damaged / clearing damaged status

22

I'd like a button on a drop down from CIRCULATION called "working with damaged items" Here, you'd have the ability to BILL THE LAST PATRON. I'd also like that function to have the ability to easily scan in and clear the items from DAMAGED (make them "reshelving") rather than having to go to ITEM STATUS to clear each time. Too many steps now.
