Homebound/Outreach Module

14

We serve a lot of homebound/outreach patrons for whom staff are responsible for providing RA selection rather than just recommendations.  Having a module that would allow staff the ability to maintain a brief circulation history with the option for staff to enter notes/ratings based on feedback (patrons would have to opt in, of course) would be exceptionally helpful.  That circ history would just be a yes/no on having previously borrowed rather than a detailed history.

Hemlock Mobile Android App Improvements

5

We do an annual patron satisfaction survey each year, and each year, more patrons ask for an app - the Hemlock app created by Ken Cox is a good start and we hope to roll out a PINES-branded version soon. However, there are a number of additional features that we feel would provide added benefit to patrons: Read more »

Offline / Standalone Client: Add ability to automate offline patron download

8

Add the optional ability to schedule an automated download of the offline patron list in the background while logged into the client. This would save staff from having to remember to do it manually on a regular basis.

Offline / Standalone Client: Remove bad scan without starting over

6

If there is a mis-scan, add the ability to remove it without having to start over (the current "Delete Selected Transation" button does not function - it just gives an error that says "Not Yet Implemented.").

Please add the capability to add more status codes to Evergreen such as Display.  We would love to be able to add these codes now and in the future.

Articles ignored in sorting

14

When sorting by title, "A", "An", and "The" are used when they are the first word, which is NOT helpful when trying to locate a title (reports, item status, patron record - holds and items checked out, and there may be other places). Read more »

Allow users to open search results in new tabs

14
I'd like to be able to open item record pages from a search into a new Evergreen tab. Often in a search I have several items from a page of results that I want to compare, or just be able to view them concurrently. As it is, the only way I've found to do this is to run the same search in multiple tabs, which is time-consuming and unwieldy.

Option to Set Default Search View to "Basic"

4

In the staff client, there are currently options in "Workstation Administration" > "Set Search Preferences" to choose a default search library and to set your workstation's default search view to Advanced, Numeric, or MARC Expert.  I would like to see an option to set the workstation's default search view to the "Basic" search.

Notification of Online Payments for Billed Items

7

If a patron pays for a billed item in person at a library, the staff can record the item that was paid for and send a reciept to cataloging to have the item reordered. If a patron instead pays for the lost/billed item through their account online, no notifications are sent to inform library staff that the item is permanently out of circulation and not going to be returned. If these paid items could be documented in a list and a report sent to library staff so we can know which items to reorder that would be helpful.

Establish a consistent interface in the Evergreen staff client

5

I think Evergreen needs to be consistent throughout, about where it places function buttons such as "Print", "Modify", etc.. This could be done by creating what I call a style sheet, not to be confused with CSS, with which developers need to conform if they want their submissions accepted. It's a very long term project, but why not do something like set up a committee to work out a draft to be submitted to the larger community for approval. I know a consistent interface would make my job easier.
