    Thanks for your suggestion. We are currently reviewing this request and gathering additional details about this feature.

    In the meantime, please continue to provide more feedback and we welcome your votes!

  2. Additional turnaways information requested

    With auto-upgrades, if an eBook is only available as a 1-user license and is in use please could it be reported as a turnaway if someone else tries to access it. Not everyone will fill in the mediated title request so I don't think we are getting a true picture of how often people can't access 1-user titles and we have quite a lot of these. It would also help make COUNTER reporting of turnaways more accurate I would guess? Thanks

  3. Real-time turn away alerts/reports

    Kathleen wants this so she can go in and upgrade immediately. It’s not as helpful to see a turn away report in hind-sight

    Thanks for your suggestion. We have a turnaway report available if you contact customer support, but I can see how it would be much more useful to run on demand in LibCentral. While we continue to monitor demand, please feel free to provide more feedback and votes!

  4. Add country data to the Usage Report export

    As an international membership organisation it is important for us to record which titles are being accessed from where. Adding a country column to the Usage Report would do this - if that's possible?

    Thank you for your feedback on this potential enhancement. We are currently reviewing this request, and gathering additional information. In the meantime, please continue to provide more feedback and we welcome your votes! We will keep the status updated of the project update here.

  5. Add document type 'Textbook' to available search refinements, and within usage reports.

    It would be great to be able to quickly refine the owned content list to textbooks only, and from there extract a spreadsheet of your textbook model titles with relevant information. It would also be great to report on textbook model usage separately and quickly.

    Thank you for submitting this great idea to our exchange! We are reviewing this and keep voting and adding comments and questions on this enhancement, as we continue our evaluation. Much appreciation, Rayna Stowe

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Title Report delivery

    Libcentral's Title Report can only be delivered by email, even if it's a tiny report with ten or a dozen lines. It would be nice if a download option were provided, as with the Usage Report.
