Another new report, Item Count, has been added to Crystal Reports. This report will give a count of items by collection code and shelving location. You can also choose to have the report subtotaled by either collection code or shelving location. The report is designed to help with collection planning, shelving and remodeling planning and item count tracking.
For more information about the reports and directions on running the report, see the About link for the report on the main ILS Reports page.
Two new “Popular Holds” reports have been added to Crystal Reports. They will list the top holds placed at the library or libraries you choose. There are two reports “Popular Holds – Books” and “Popular Holds – Other Materials”. The Books report creates lists for the top adult and the top juvenile books. The Other Materials report creates separate lists for Video, Sound (non-music), Sound (music) and Software. The report was originally requested by Eddie Glade at Portage County so they could have a weekly “most holds placed” list.
For more information about the reports and directions on running the reports, see the About link for the reports on the main ILS Reports page.

All other statuses available in the drop-down menu can be assigned as a status within Periodicals. This is not a new problem, but it was not listed on this page in the past (2/11/2015). (SCLS Support Ticket 2570) [BUG]

2/10/2016 Items with item-level holds that are in-transit are displaying on the receiving library's Holds Queue report. If an item is in transit to a library and staff place an item-level hold on the item, that item will display on the Holds Queue report of the library that the item is in-transit to. This is a bug that was previously fixed in 2013 (SCLS Support ticket #1559) and has started again. LibLime was able to replicate the problem so the developers are working on a fix. (SCLS Support ticket 6508).
1/26/2016 FIXED. 7/1/2014 List of show/hide columns is not aligned with edge of list of items display. When viewing items in the Batch Edit Items tool, the Show/Hide columns list runs across the entire page, forcing scrolling to select columns in the list of items below. This is not a problem in Chrome. It seems to be related to Firefox 30. This issue has been reported to LibLime. (7/1/14) (SCLS Support Ticket 985) [BUG]
A new "Use by Bib" report has been added to Crystal Reports. This report is designed to let you know the use, both past and current year, of all items attached to a specific bibliographic record. Enter the barcode for any item still in the system and the report will give you the usage information for the current year and all past years for all items on that bib record. The report was originally requested by Eric Norton at McMillan to help determine if lost or damaged items should be replaced.
