  1. Idea Description
    This idea is based in part on one submitted back in 2019 by Andy Helck.  Create an endpoint that will provide the list of records included in a specified review file from Create Lists.  I essentially envision this as the API version of the bool_set SQL table.

    Idea Value
    This would provide outside systems the means of retrieving lists of titles that staff maintain within create lists and can provide a means for services to access data without having to work out how to create Json queries.

  2. Idea Description
    Fix the URL Checker "print" option to email, which can be useful to embed URLs and forward them to work on offline, but the columns on the report break the URLs and the report is useless since the full URL is forced to break based on a fixed pre-determined length of column.  This would help both interactive / custom reports as well as a larger report of the list of errors. In example provided, anything not underlined in "blue" that wraps to a second line is a broken URL that will not launch.

  3. Idea Description

    Automatically clear the jarcache directory in the Sierra Desktop App installation files after an upgrade or provide an option in the SDA settings to enable this.

    Idea Value

    The jarcache directory is updated the first time the SDA is launched after a Sierra upgrade.  After several upgrades the directory becomes bloated with old .jar files. It makes sense for the jarcache directory to be cleared as part of the first launch of the SDA post upgrade. This will ensure a fresh set of jar files.

  4. As a library worker using the Sierra staff client, when I have a review file open or selected, I want some navigation that will take me directly to Global/Rapid Update to work on that review file.

    Idea Value
    I am constantly creating review files then editing them in Global or Rapid Update. This is a big part of my job. I don't know how many times I've gotten to Global/Rapid Update and I can't remember the number of the list I'm working on. It would be great to have navigation in Create Lists that would take me directly to Global/Rapid…

  5. Idea Description

    Currently within create lists there is a option to add records to a list that can be accessed when viewing the contents of a review file.  This opens a search window where you can then pull up a record and add to the review file once you've found what you're looking for.

    It'd be nice to open up this function and make it accessible outside of Create Lists such that from any record you can click on an "add to list button", which would bring up a window of existing review files of the relevant record type and…

  6. Even if III isn't able to provide a full-fledged editing interface for Load Profiles, add a mode in which we can view Load Profiles and Put PC to back them up. That's so much easier than having to setup FTP to the site, which our IT prohibited when I first gave up on it. This should apply to both m2btabs and m2bmaps.

    Idea Value
    Make it possible to backup load profiles on PC, which would enable much easier documentation of the variety of load tables and maps, and the load profile menu.

  7. The patron record payment lock time should be reduced or have the ability to be overridden. Four hours is an excessive amount of time for a record to be locked. If a patron record is open for more than, say, 15 minutes (or even 5 minutes), the other session is probably not in the midst of making a payment.

    Idea Value
    Patron record locks are unexpected and embarrassing for staff that encounter them when the patron is in front of them wanting to pay or have a fine, fee, or other charge paid or waived. The patron is confused and…

  8. The Load Tables are a critical point for any data management of a library. While many functions and features have been migrated from character-based system access to web access or within the SDA, this feature has not changed. Programming with what seems like a unix-based editor reminds me of the "dark ages" of programming.

    Idea Value
    Many times the syntactical error or omission of a line in my load table editing sessions happen because of the UNIX-like environment where editing takes place. Increased modernization of the editor would streamline the process.
