It would be nice to have a "date removed" field for DDA titles. As titles are removed between file loads, patrons occasionally come across a record that has been removed from ProQuest but not from the catalog yet because the monthly file has not been created yet. If a title had a note of when it was removed from DDA, that would help clear up these problems. It would be similar to the "date added" field, but would be "date removed from DDA".1 vote
Is it possible to implement alerts on recently added titles according patron's search terms? Referring to my experience this could also help promote DDA. Thanks.1 vote
We would like to be able to profile by readership level, so that it is easy to filter out non-academic content which we do not want to acquire.17 votes
This idea is still under review by the product team. We will continue to update our customers on the Idea Exchange. We appreciate your comments and votes as we evaluate and triage your great ideas! Best, Rayna
We have a DDA with ProQuest and an autofeed for ProQuest content in OCLC collection manager. It occured to us that when the credits points of a non-linear book are spent before the 325 days of usage have been reached and the publication is temporarily not available the title remains visible in OCLC discovery as 'purchased'. Ideally the title should be migrated from the 'purchased' to the 'DDA' collection during the time the title is not available, and moved back to the purchased collection as soon as new 'credit points' have been assigned1 vote
For the extended access at 1U and 3U we would like to use the mediated process, but here the user is not informed that the title is actually already purchased and therefore moderated.
We would like to refer to the purchased/owned title before or during the moderating request.7 votes
It would be great to be able to export the Librarian comments in an CSV file. It would help librarians to analyse the comments and to communicate to stakeholders, for e.g. why DDA titles got rejected.2 votes
We would like the ability to customize our autopurchase hierarchy, because our preference of Access Model does not match the Purchase Hierarchy for Ebook Central
Also, we require the ability to exclude select Access Models so they are never purchased.14 votes
This idea is still in the review stage. We appreciate the continued votes and comments on this idea (as well as others), so continue to engage! We will keep the status updated, so stay tuned. Best,
Currently the message field on a request form for mediated-DDA is optional but many administrators want users to put comments. So I request administrators can select it's optional or mandatory.10 votesmegan.marion responded

Thank you for your feedback! We are currently reviewing this request, and gathering additional information about this feature.
Currently we can put only one type of customized text for each field. We need a functionality to put text by every language so that the appropriate customized text would be displayed if any languages are selected.4 votes
Users would like to have noted the date a title was added to a DDA list.
