RELEASE NOTES

WORKFLOWS and iBISTRO CORRECTIONS

and iBISTRO ENHANCEMENTS

October 2009
WORKFLOWS CLIENT


  1. Browse Call Number Search Result Always Highlighted the First Call Number/Item Linked to a Title

When an entry is selected from the call number browse hitlist, the wizards will

locate a corresponding call number in the View pane and highlight either the exact

call number node or its first item if there are items attached. The same selection will

be carried over to the call number/item tree on the Call number/Item tab of the

detailed display.

This change affects all catalog searches when browsing by call number in cataloging wizards and circulation wizards.
2. Intermittent “Unavailable for Display” Message in Search

If multiple users searched simultaneously and used different libraries or library

groups to limit their searches, the users were occasionally receiving "Unavailable for

Display" messages when attempting to view the details of a record returned in their

search. For example, the first user performed a search against All libraries, then a second user performed a search limited to the Main Library. The first user may have

received the "Unavailable for Display" message if they selected a record from their

hitlist that was not held by the Main Library.

This happened in both WorkFlows and e-Library and has been corrected.
ACQUISITIONS


  1. Correct Totals Display for the Quantity Ordered and Quantity Received Fields on the Order List Summary Tab

If an order search in the Display Order wizard produced a list of many orders, and the user clicked the Summary tab to view a summary of all orders, the totals shown

in the Quantity Ordered and Quantity Received fields sometimes displayed as

negative numbers.

The Display Order wizard has been changed to that the totals for the Quantity Ordered and Quantity Received fields on the Summary tab in an orders list are correct.



  1. Quantity Loaded Field Updated Correctly When the Automatically Set Date Loaded for Items Received Wizard Property is Selected

If the Automatically Set Date Loaded for Items Received property check box was

selected and the Date Received property was set to TODAY in the Received Orders

wizard properties, the Quantity Loaded field was not updated when an orderline

was received. As a result, the received title would display a status of ON-ORDER

when the title displayed in an e-Library search results list.

The Receive Orders wizard has been corrected so the Quantity Loaded field is updated properly when an orderline is received. The title will now show the correct status when the title is displayed in the e-Library.


  1. Date Loaded is Not Set for Items Not Received in a Partial Receipt

If the Automatically Set Date Loaded for Items Received property was selected in

the Receive Orders wizard properties, and an order was partially received, the Date

Loaded field for the items not yet received was being set to the current date.

This has been corrected.
CATALOGING


  1. Library Heading for Holdings Not Displaying When Other Copies Were In Shadowed Locations

In the WorkFlows clients and the e-Library (iBistro), when the holdings were displayed for a title that had some copies in shadowed locations, the Library heading line was not displaying. This made it appear as though some of the copies belonged to the preceding library in the list. This has been corrected.


  1. Full Record Displays Correctly for a Browse Search Results List With a Single Title

If a browse search in the SmartPort wizard generated a search results list with one title, the following message displayed when the user selected the title and clicked Display to view the title record.

Specified result set does not exist

When the user clicked OK to close the message, a blank screen displayed instead of

the selected title record.

Now the message will not display when the user’s browse search produces a results list with only one title. When the user selects the title and clicks Display, the full title record displays correctly.


  1. Bibliographic Records Imported through SmartPort Now Display UNAUTHORIZED flag in WorkFlows.

When importing bibliographic records via SmartPort, after the record is saved and then viewed in a cataloging wizard, tags under authority control with unauthorized headings were not displaying the |?UNAUTHORIZED flag. This has been corrected.


  1. Dynamic Indexing Was Not Updating Title, Call Number, and Item Records in Certain Instances

The dynamic indexing (indexing that makes record changes immediately visible to

the user) was not working in the following instances.

• When any item was transferred to a different title

• When a floating item’s library was changed at check in

• When an item or call number record was deleted

Now, the dynamic index is updated after any item transfer to a different title, call number/item removal, and check in of a floating item.


  1. WorkFlows Java Client Was Automatically Re-using Copy Numbers for New Items

Previously, the WorkFlows cataloging wizards were automatically reusing copy numbers for new items. Instead, the wizards should use the next highest, unique and unused copy number for the call number. The user does have the option of manually editing the assigned copy number and re-using a copy number.

The cataloging wizards have been corrected. Now, when an item is created, the next highest, available copy number is assigned. Users can then manually edit the assigned copy number and re-use copy numbers, if desired.
CIRCULATION


  1. Unable to Limit User Browse Searching by Library

The User Search helper, browse searches were not limited successfully by library or library group. This has been corrected.


  1. Total Checkouts Count Incorrect When Printing Circulation Receipts

When printing receipts from the Checkout wizard or Renew User wizard and using the Print Checkout Totals, users noticed that the total number of checkouts was not

accurate. This occurred when items were renewed during the checkout process.

The Checkout and Renew User wizards have been corrected.


  1. User Search Helper Browsing Enhanced

Previously, when browsing user records in the User Search helper, if a library staff member searched a term or name that retrieved more than 300 hits, the helper could

take up to two minutes to respond because it was attempting to retrieve all search

results from the server in one response. Or, the helper would display a “Response

truncated” message and a shortened, un-alphabetized list of user records would

appear.

Now, the browse search will initially return 50 hits. To move through the remaining results, the library staff member will need to use the Forward and Backward buttons that appear just above the search hit list. The User Search helper only retrieves more search results from the server as the staff member browses forward, and this should reduce the helper's response time.


  1. Cursor Focus Not Set in Item ID Field After User Blocked Override

When checking out items to a patron, after the library staff member typed an override for a blocked user ID, the cursor focus was not re-set to the Item ID field. The staff member had to move the cursor to the field to checkout the next item ID. This occurred when the following Checkout wizard behavior properties were set as follows:

• The Display User Blocks In Separate Window property was cleared.

• The Automatically Restart Checkout On Item ID Error property was selected.

This has been corrected.


  1. Bill Library Incorrectly Set as Checkout Library When Creating a Bill

In the Bill User wizard, when a library staff member created a bill for an item

currently on loan to another user, the library in the bill record was incorrectly set to

the checkout library for the current loan. It should be set to the login/station library.

This has been corrected.


  1. Lose User ID When Billing a User and Have to Cancel Lost Bill

Previously in the Mark Item Lost wizard, when staff attempted to mark an item lost after having received an “Item is already marked LOST” message, the wizard

became unresponsive and had to be cancelled. This has been corrected.


  1. Records Are Currently in Use in Checkout Wizard

Previously in the Checkout wizard, a “Records are currently in use” system message appeared, even when the records were not in use. This has been corrected.
iBistro CORRECTIONS


  1. Item Status Changed to Unavailable When User Cancels an Available Hold

If the user cancelled an available hold in iBistro the hold status was changed to Inactive, and the item status was changed to Unavailable. As a result, the following situation occurred.

• Because the item was immediately returned to its home location, the item could

be listed in the output of the List Onshelf Items with Holds (Pullonshelfhld)

report while the item is still physically on the Holds shelf.

iBistro has been changed so that when a user cancels a hold, the hold status is set to Inactive, and the item status is set to Available.


  1. iBistro Was Unresponsive and Would Not Start Up Again

When a user displayed a patron’s checkouts it caused the e- Library to be nresponsive and display the following message.

UNABLE TO PROCESS REQUEST

It was determined that the user part programs contained “memory leaks” and could not allocate memory usage correctly. This has been corrected.


  1. Review My Account Display Refreshes Correctly After Removing Holds and Reservations

If a user logged into Review My Account and cancelled a hold or a reservation, the

Review My Account display did not refresh correctly. The list of holds did not refresh to reflect that the hold that had been cancelled. If the user continued repeatedly to try to cancel the hold the following message eventually displayed.

#UGMust be all digits

The Review My Account pages have been corrected so that when a user cancels a

hold, the list of holds refreshes and shows that the hold or reservation has been cancelled.


  1. Item Info Field Displays Location of Available Copies

If a title had more than one copy, and a copy was unavailable, the location of the

unavailable copy would display in the Item Info field on Item Information tab instead of the location of the available copy.

Example: A user searches for the title The Summons. The title has two copies. The first copy is available, and the second copy is checked out. The search hit list displays an entry for the title and shows that one copy is available in the stacks.

If the user clicks the Details button on the hit list entry, the Item Info field on

the Item Information tab displays the following text.

1 copy available in Material has been checked/charged out.

The Item Info field has been corrected to show the current location for available

copies of the title.


  1. Slowness in iBistro Corrected

This issue happened when an iBistro URL with a bad session number (such as

when the session had expired, after a halt/initialize/run, or using the browser's

Back button after the previous user logged out of their session) was sent to the

server. The program sometimes would stop responding instead of displaying a time out error page.

This has been corrected so that the session number gets set to 0 when the one

specified in the URL is invalid. Now, the “session timed out” error page displays

immediately.
iBistro ENHANCEMENTS


  1. Updated Interface to iBistro Includes Support for Local Cascading Stylesheet

The iBistro interface design has been changed to include the following enhancements.

• New look and feel using Standard CSS and JavaScript files instead of inline JavaScript. The new interface is consistent with the SirsiDynix Enterprise interface because of shared cascading stylesheets. The new interface can be used across various library types, instead of the iLink interface being used in academic sites and the iBistro interface being used by all other sites.

• Support for the use of local cascading stylesheets, so the look and feel can be customized for specific libraries or logins.

• Faster response time, since many graphics have been eliminated and color changes are now configured with stylesheets and not in the page files. For example, virtually all of the buttons are now just text.


  1. Tabbed Display Replaces the Review My Account Display

The Review My Account display has been redesigned to include tabs so the user can more quickly access the desired information.


  1. Account Summary Tab

The Account Summary tab displays information about the user’s current library

transactions. This tab shows the amount of unpaid bills, the number of current checkouts, and the number of overdue items. This tab also displays certain alert messages, such as the user’s status.


  1. Checkouts Tab

The Checkouts tab shows a list of the user’s checkouts and allows users to renew

items. By default, the tab is configured to display only current checkouts. If the user does not currently have any charged items, this tab will not display.


  1. Holds Tab

The Holds tab shows a list of holds that the user has placed, and whether the holds are available or unavailable. Users can cancel holds, edit holds, suspend holds, or activate holds on this tab. By default, the tab is set to display on active holds.

An “in transit” message will be displayed for a hold if the requested item is in transit to the pickup library.


  1. Bills Tab

The Bills tab shows a list of unpaid bills that have been assessed to the user’s

account. Bill information includes the reason for the bill, the amount of the bill, and

the date the bill was added to the account. For bills associated with items, the title

and author also display. Fines for items that are still checked out will not display on

the Bills tab until the items are returned. If the user does not have any unpaid bills,

the Bills tab will not display.


  1. New Option to Configure Station Library for e-Library Holds

When placing a hold in iBistro if the patron did not log in to iBistro the WEBSERVER login’s library was used as the workstation library for placing the hold, instead of the library associated with the patron’s user ID. The WEBSERVER login’s library did not necessarily match the patron’s library, and this was an issue for sites that do not honor holds for patrons at other libraries.

Now, the patron’s library is used for placing iBistro holds. When a patron does not log in to iBistro if the patron places a hold on an item, the library associated with the patron’s user ID will be used as the workstation library for placing the hold.


  1. Added Ability to Link to Full Details from My Account Lists

When a user logs in to iBistro and moves to the My Account/Review My Account or My Account/Renew My Materials page, there could be long lists of truncated title or author information for the items listed. Now, a Details link will appear next to the Title or Title/Author information. If the user clicks the Details link for an item, the Full Details of the record in the catalog will display. If the user clicks the Go Back button, he/she will be returned to the My Account page without the need to log in again.


  1. Added Intransit Message to Holds List in My Account Pages

After a user logs in to iBistro and moves to the My Account/Review My Account or My Account/Renew My Materials page and views theHolds list, he/she can now tell which items are In transit to the pickup library.
