  1. Allow to fill RapidILL requests with URLs instead of files

    When staff users try to use the workflow step "ship digitally" and indicate a URL instead of uploading a PDF, the request is closed at the Lending side but the patron never receives any notification and the Borrowing request stays pending.
    After checking with ExLibris, it seems that Rapid/Alma is not currently designed to be able to fill RapidILL requests with URLs (instead of files).
    This would be very helpful though, especially in case of large files.

  2. Rapidill lending requests: Locate item on loan

    We often get scan lending requests from Rapidill for items that are on loan. It seems that the Rapid locate mechanism should be improved.

  3. Ability to throttle the number of lending requests

    We would like the ability to throttle the number of lending requests our institution gets. As a larger institution, we receive about 150 lending requests a day during the school year. We know RAPIDILL staff can do this for us, but we can occasionally have a student out sick and that dramatically decreases the amount we are able to scan. If we could cap our print holdings requests ourselves quickly, this would help us especially during the summer or holidays.
