  1. Add access permission to Expenditure and Usage Report

    For tracking costs (of user groups defined by access permissions sets) a additional column of the user access permission in the reports (exports) would be helpful.

  2. Allow Title Reports to merge across multiple consortial holdings

    We have books we've DDAd and own directly. In addition we have two different consortia that we have owned/subscribed books through. I want to be able to generate a single report (and choose the columns myself) that merges ALL of our institutional "holdings" - owned, subscribed, DDA, ATO. Right now I have to download all of them separately and then merge them myself, and since the subscribed is huge (and I can't pick the columns so I get them all), it is unwieldy to work with in Excel.

  3. I'd like to analyze usage by series-titles, as well as individual titles and publishers.

    Currently I have no way of determining which series are most used by users without looking title by title. I'd like a quicker and easier way of determining which series have gained and lost usage year by year - so as to identify which series titles should be acquired or left out of selective purchasing.

  4. allow for more attributes to be passed in reports

    there are more elements that can be extracted from the info our users pass you to authenticate that could be added to reports, for example role (undergrad, grad, faculty, staff) or school (Medicine, Engineering, Business, etc.).

  6. Improve COUNTER 4 and COUNTER 5 Reports

    ALL COUNTER 4 and 5 Reports
    Please find a way to alphabetize the titles in all COUNTER 4 and 5 reports properly so that initial articles are ignored (e.g., a, the). For example, A Practical Approach to Cardiovascular Medicine should sort under P rather than A and The Craft of Scientific Presentations : Critical Steps to Succeed and Critical Errors to Avoid should sort under C rather than T.

    COUNTER 5 Reports
    The COUNTER 5 TR-B1 Report lists titles in an apparently random order as the default. Please change the default to alphabetical order.

    The COUNTER 5 TR_B1 Report doesn’t…

  8. To generate the reports to get the titles by the ‘disciplines’ like Arts & Humanities

    Hi,

    Good Morning!

    We are not able to get to the discipline level when generate any of the reports. Example: Arts & Humanities. You do have fund codes, subject headings like Science, Medicine, Pharmacy etc. and LC call numbers in certain reports but we need get the titles grouped under a particular discipline.

    Please add the functionality to generate the reports to get the titles by the ‘disciplines’.

    Thanks!
    Have a nice day ahead!
    With best wishes

  9. Develop a possibility to get necessary usage data automatically through REST API.

    We would like to reduce a manual work of downloading usage data every week for our internal reporting system Tableau. So we suggest developing API (or even xAPI) service for getting data automatically.
