Code Release: New LibCal, LibGuides, LibAuth, LibInsight, LibWizard, LibAnswers, and LibCRM features coming your way!

We’re not sure how this happened so quickly, but it’s already August! Many of our customers are in “back to school” mode, finishing up projects and getting everything ready for the new school year. That means here in Springy-land our support and training teams are sprinting to help all of you with everything you need to start the new school year right (and just start August on the right foot, if you’re not one of those getting ready for a new school year)! What better way to start August than with a bunch of new features? …maybe by having some ice cream while reading all about them? Mmmmmm….

These releases are on their way to you next week, and will be live in all regions by the end of the day on Friday, August 9.

Read about: LibCal | LibGuides & LibAuth | LibInsight | LibWizard | LibStaffer | LibAnswers | LibCRM

LibCal

We’ve been busy working to bring you the following LibCal features and fixes across every module in the system!

Billing

  • Record a payment note when cancelling/refunding an in-person payment. The payment note recorded when the cancellation is made will show in the payment details modal for an event registration or equipment/space reservation.
  • Override the cost of a booking on the admin side during the equipment/space booking process. Head to Equipment or Spaces from the main menu and make a booking in a billable equipment or space category to access the new cost override field.
  • ‘Status’ and ‘Payments’ columns are now part of the Event Explorer CSV export if the event is billable. Go to Calendars > Event Explorer for a calendar that has a billable event. After searching in the Event Explorer, click the ‘Export Data’ button to see these two fields in the CSV output.

Appointments

Features
  • By popular request, we have started to add more granular user permissions to LibCal! There is now an account level permission to restrict Regular users to only be able to run the Appointments booking explorer for themselves and no other users.  Head to Admin > Accounts > Edit Account > Permissions Tab to change this setting.
  • Also by popular demand, since we recently added cancellation information to the Spaces booking explorer, we’ve added it to the Appointments booking explorer as well! Head to Appointments > Booking Explorer to view who cancelled an appointment and the date and time of the cancellation.
  • The appointment cancellation process now allows additional notes to be sent in the email that the patron receives when an appointment is canceled on the back end of the system. Head to Appointments > My Appointments to cancel a booking and send additional notes in the ‘Admin Cancel Email to Patron’ template. (NOTE: The {{{ADDITIONAL_INFORMATION}}} token must be present in the ‘Admin Cancel Email to Patron’ template for this field to appear in the email.)
  • New email template: ‘Rescheduled Email to Patron’. Previously if an appointment was rescheduled, the system would send the confirmation email to the patron, without specific information that it was a rescheduled appointment. This new template improves communication with patrons by specifically stating the appointment is a rescheduled one. Head to Appointments > My Settings to configure this new email template.
  • When making an appointment booking on the admin side of the system where you are choosing a specific group, the categories dropdown now shows the categories in two distinct sections: ‘Supported Categories’ (the categories that apply to the selected group) and ‘Other Categories In The System’. Head to Appointments > My Appointments and make an appointment booking, selecting a group, to see this in action.
  • The ‘Directions’ field will no longer show on the public appointments confirmation booking page if no directions exist or pertain to availability set for an appointments user. Previously, the field descriptor would show but there was no information after it.
Fixes
  • We’ve corrected an issue with the Appointments email template previews where any HTML inside the template would display as code in the preview.
  • We’ve corrected an issue where the public Appointments booking page would show availability (although it could not actually be booked) on a day when there is none available for a group using the ‘Show Group Nickname’ option.

Events

Features
  • We’ve added a new system generated email to notify event owners when a patron cancels an event registration.
  • Events that require registrations have new options for when registrations close: 15, 30 and 45 minutes before the event. Head to a Calendar that has an event requiring registration (add a new one) to see these new options.
  • We’ve improved the end date selection field when creating an event to automatically default to the start date selected for a recurring event. Previously, the end date would default to the current date. Head to a Calendar and set up a recurring event in the future to see the new end date default selection.
  • After saving or publishing an event using the Publishing Workflow, you’ll now return right back to the Publishing Workflow page instead of the calendar.
  • When viewing Event registrations, the ‘View User History’ modal now has a column displaying the date of the event in addition to the registration date that previously displayed in this modal. Head to a Calendar, choose an event that requires registration, then click ‘Manage Event’. Click the ‘View User History’ icon for any of the event registration records to see this additional field.
  • Phone numbers and barcodes (if applicable) now display in the Event Explorer and its related data export. Go to Calendars > Event Explorer and search for an event where the registration form includes phone number and/or barcode. When clicking the ‘Show’ button on the event record that is returned, the phone number and barcode fields display. Click the ‘Export Data’ button to see these new fields in the CSV output.
  • The Event Explorer now has an option to include the event description when using the ‘Search’ field. Without this new option selected, the ‘Search’ field will only search for events based on the event title. Head to Calendars > Event Explorer to see and use this new option.
  • We’ve added missing language keys for the public events calendar for when multiple calendars are selected as well as the the filter options for the number of selected filters and the “Filter by Type” verbiage. Head to Admin > System Settings > Language Options > Custom Language > Events Pages to configure these new language keys.
Fixes
  • We’ve corrected an issue where editing the ‘registration close’ value for an event series would reset the start and end time of individual events that differed from the original event series start and end time.
  • We’ve fixed an issue with the full calendar widget where the ‘Audience’ list did not appear when selecting filters to hide.  Head to Calendars > Widgets, then select the ‘Full Calendar’ widget where you will now be able to hide specific audience filters.
  • When a patron cancels an event registration, they will see the relevant event details on the public cancellation confirmation page for confirmation.
  • On the public event card view, locations with commas now properly display.
  • We’ve resolved an issue with cancelling event registrants from an event series where the patron was not registered for all events in the series. Previously, when trying to cancel a registration in this scenario, an error would appear not allowing the registration record to be deleted.
  • If an event’s booking form has phone number included, the waitlist will now sort initially by registration date/time instead of the phone number column. Head to a Calendar and choose an event that has phone number included in its booking form and waitlist records exist to see the corrected default sort.
  • The Upcoming Events widget now properly processes the max number of events value.
  • We’ve fixed the calendar color options selected for the admin view of a calendar. Previously, the colors selected did not apply to the calendar. Had to a Calendar, click on the ‘Settings’ drop-down and select ‘Color Options’ to set the colors for the calendar.
  • We’ve corrected the ‘Today’ language token so it will correctly apply to the public event calendar view.

Equipment & Spaces

Features
  • Select an event template when creating an event from a space booking. Go to Spaces > Availability and click on a booked space in the grid. In the section that displays the booking details, click the ‘Create Event’ button. If any event templates are set up in your LibCal site, an option will appear to select a template or create an event from scratch.
  • You can now remove Hours templates that are no longer in use without affecting any of the stats reports. Head to Admin > Equipment & Spaces > Manage Hours Templates to remove any template from the list that is no longer in use.
  • We’ve enhanced the Confirmed Bookings calendar to include the ‘nickname’ for a booking (if one exists) on the initial view of the calendar. Head to Spaces > Confirmed Bookings to see the ‘nickname’ associated with a booking on the initial view of the calendar.
  • We’ve added support for booking lead times for K12 (a.k.a., school libraries) sites. Head to Admin > Equipment & Spaces, click on the Spaces link for your K12 location, click ‘Edit Category’ for any space category and then on the Booking Limits tab, where you will find the booking lead time setting.
  • We’ve added the Booking ID for both the Equipment and Spaces Booking Explorer exports. Go to either Equipment or Spaces, click on the Booking Explorer tab, run a search, and then click on the ‘Export’ button. The Booking ID will now be included in the CSV output.
  • We’ve added any notes that existed in the Room Bookings to display in the Spaces module for any bookings that were migrated over during the Room Bookings to Spaces migration process.  Go to Spaces > Availability, find and click on a booking that was migrated from Room Bookings. When the details of the booking load, the notes (if applicable) from Room Bookings will now display.
  • We’ve improved the Equipment ‘Fines’ page by adding the show/hide columns, Excel, PDF, and CSV buttons to be used in conjunction with the datatable results returned from searching on this page.
  • We’ve added a language token for the verbiage that displays on the Equipment/Spaces public booking cancellation page.  Head to Admin > System Settings > Language Options > Custom Language > Equipment & Spaces to customize:
    • “Click on the ‘Cancel Booking’ button to cancel an individual booking”
    • “Click on the ‘Cancel Booking’ button to cancel an individual booking or the ‘Cancel All Bookings’ button to cancel all.”
  • We’ve enhanced the public page equipment search to re-load all items on the page if a search is cleared.
Fixes
  • The availability grid for the Equipment module is now properly displaying longer padding windows associated with booked items.
  • We’ve corrected an issue where if the ending hours for an equipment item was set to 12am and later, the reservation would automatically put the end time to the next day’s opening hours.
  • We’ve corrected an issue where inactive spaces were adding to the ‘Time Available’ data when running stats for a space category. Go to Stats > Spaces and then run the report for a space category where there are inactive spaces. The ‘Time Available’ value will no longer include these spaces.
  • We’ve corrected an issue where, when pulling data through the API, an extra millisecond was being returned when a custom time was in use for a space or equipment item.
  • We’ve fixed an issue where, when creating a recurring booking, bookings that were not created because of a clash would still show up in the booking confirmation email.
  • We’ve corrected an issue when a space or equipment category was set up for both 2-step verification and mediation.  The confirmation emails will now include the mediated booking dates and times.

Misc Fixes

  • We’ve fixed the Google Maps integration for Hours locations on the public pages. Head to Admin > Hours and modify the settings of a location or department to set the latitude & longitude or place id values. Next head to Admin > Look & Feel > Homepage Editor or Hours Page Editor to display the Google Maps integration on the public pages.
  • We’ve corrected accessibility errors when an ‘Error 404’ page is viewed.
  • We’ve corrected an issue when LibAuth rules are in use and are set to auto-populate the First Name field.
  • We’ve fixed the LibApps signature option for event and appointment email confirmations. Head to Admin > System Settings > Email Signatures to allow users to set their email signature using the signature set up in their LibApps profile.

LibGuides & LibAuth

We have a small series of fixes for LibApps and LibGuides this month! We’ve been working to tune up the back end, but you’ll also notice these changes:

Accessibility

  • We made the contrast of the homepage sidebar buttons WCAG 2.0 AA compliant.
  • If you assign a custom language to a group, that language designation is correctly assigned to all guides contained in that group. Some of you reported that the language tag was getting flagged by your accessibility checkers.
  • We removed a duplicate ID from the system and group homepages. If you target #s-lg-index-cols to style guides lists on your group or system homepages, please see the table below for details on what to look for in your custom CSS. Protip: now you can customize the homepage guide lists separately if you’d like to!

#s-lg-index-list-types
By Owner list
#s-lg-index-list-owners
All lists
#s-lg-index-list > section > div

LibAuth

The LibAuth updates this month center around the SIP2 authentication protocol. We’re seeing a lot of use of this from you, and are pleased to bring you some additional related features.

  • We added a toggle that allows you to honor or ignore any blocks returned from your ILS. If you’d like to allow patrons who are blocked for too many checkouts/fines to book LibCal rooms, now you can!
  • We’ve extended group permissions to SIP2 configurations. If you would like to restrict LibGuides or LibCal resources to particular groups of patrons, now you can!
  • We’ve enabled LibApps login for SIP2 configurations. You can use this if you would like your staff to log into LibApps using their SIP2 credentials.

Additional LibGuides fixes and features

  • We’ve added the Export All button to the Guides Statistics reports so that you can download an entire report.
  • We’ve improved the password reset process to make it more secure. Now when you reset your password, an email is sent to the address you provide.
  • We fixed the Tags filter in the LibGuides community site.
  • We’ve changed the classes used when you create a table in a blog post, so that they look the same as tables that you create in other LibGuides content. When adding or editing a table, simply use the Class dropdown (on the Table Properties screen) to choose the Bootstrap Table class(es) you’d like to use. The default is to have a table with borders.
  • We fixed a couple of issues with search results that were causing Subject names to appear more than once, and for the page results in Bento search results to have the wrong links.
  • We fixed an issue with LTI widgets that was causing links to open in the same window even if a new window was specified by your LMS.

LibInsight

We have been busily recoding the back end of LibInsight to improve performance and modernize the code. We’ve also got this list of smaller improvements to bring you:

COUNTER-related updates

  • We removed the link to the now-defunct COUNTER Release 4 validator.
  • We made several improvements to scheduled SUSHI fetches. Specifically, we delete a schedule when a provider, dataset, or platform using the schedule is deleted. We also added some validation for the “Recurring Until” dates.
  • When you copy a platform from one dataset to another, you’ll now copy any invoices and licenses that you’ve added to the platform. This includes invoice line item details, and file attachments, as well as license file attachments.
  • We added some error information to the emails you get when a SUSHI fetch fails. This will help us in troubleshooting.
  • We have added the &platform parameter when retrieving SUSHI files. Some vendors require this to differentiate among the platforms that they provide.
    screenshot showing new platform field in the sushi provider dialog

Additional fixes and features

  • We improved the interface for choosing more than one value when adding a filter in custom dataset analysis.
    screenshot showing additional help text to assist with selecting more than one value in a filter
  • We changed the Last Login field on the accounts screen so that it uses the timezone set in System Settings. It’s pretty awesome that people were logging in from the future, but we decided to go for accuracy instead. 😉

LibWizard

Abracadabra: magical new features such as the LibAuth integration and the Certificate of Completion are coming! (Thank you for your patience with those two features!)

LibAuth Integration

If you subscribe to the full version of LibWizard (i.e., you can create Forms, Surveys, Quizzes, and Tutorials in your system), you can put any form, survey, quiz, or tutorial behind a login, allowing only users at your institution to access it. Once a patron is successfully authenticated, their name and email address can also be automatically populated in to fields in your form (etc.).

To use this new feature, first make sure you have a LibAuth configuration for your institution’s authentication system set up in LibApps. (LibAuth Documentation) Once that’s set, go to LibWizard > Admin > System Settings > Advanced > Enable LibAuth Integration. Click the word Disabled to change it to Enabled, then select the configuration(s) you want to use. Click Save. Now you’re ready to use it on forms, surveys, quizzes, and/or tutorials!

While editing an item, go to [Item] Options > Basic Info > Enable LibAuth Authentication and choose the authentication config you want to use from the dropdown. If you’d like to map users’ name and email to fields in the form (etc.), select the fields to map them to in the “Map user info to fields” section just below the LibAuth option.

Screenshot of LibAuth Integration Settings

This is just the beginning! LibAuth integration opens up a floodgate of potential new and exciting features, like only allowing a user to take a quiz once or allowing users to save a tutorial and continue where they left off at a later time. Make sure you sign up for blog notifications (top right side of this page) so you’re one of the first to know about new integrations!

Don’t subscribe to the full version yet, but interested in finding out more? Check out our guide on the differences between LibWizard and LibWizard Lite, then contact our amazing Sales team for a trial / pricing information!

Certificate of Completion for Quizzes and Tutorials

Create a Certificate of Completion that users can save, print, or email after they have completed a quiz or tutorial. Customize the certificate through the use of tokens, which automatically fill in the appropriate data for that item. Available tokens include the name of the quiz/tutorial, the library name, date, and grade.

To enable Certificates of Completion, edit the quiz/tutorial’s “Thank You” screen and go to the “Certificate of Completion” tab to enable and customize it.

Other New Features

  • Randomize Quiz and Tutorial Questions
    Make quizzes and tutorials more robust and deter copying by randomizing question order.
  • Re-Ordering choices and options
    Need to change the order of choices in dropdown or checkbox fields? No problem! Just drag options around in whatever order you choose.
  • Allow multiple answers in Grid questions
    Make the grid option behave like checkboxes: allow multiple answers per row!
  • Progress bar for Forms, Surveys, and Quizzes
    You can now enable the progress bar so users can track how far along they are, just like you can in Tutorials.
  • New button/modal widget
    Want to add your Form, Survey, or Quiz to a webpage, but don’t want to embed it right in the page because it takes up too much space? No problem! Use this new widget to add a button to your page, which pops up a modal window when clicked.
  • Field Rules in Tutorials
    Show/Hide any fields in your tutorials based on patrons’ response. Want to show hints when patrons are struggling? You can! Hide tutorial topics that patrons already know about? Check. The possibilities are endless….

Fixes

  • Reports:
    • Usability improvements such as freezing the top row (field name) so it stays visible when working with long reports.
    • Keyword Filtering submissions was reworked to more easily filter through a lot of data.
    • Performance improvements for forms that have a lot of submissions.
    • The Date field now displays in the same format you selected for that field.
    • You can now filter by date and/or submission’ metadata (e.g. IP and referrer) in addition to the usual filters.
  • Concurrent editing check: if you click save for an item that was edited by someone else after you initially opened it, you’ll get an error message instead of overwriting their change.
  • Want to right click a link for a form or report and open it in a new window? Go for it – now you can.
  • Various accessibility fixes.

LibStaffer

This release we have a couple of fixes and some exciting info to share. First, the fixes!

  • We’ve corrected an issue where manually typing in dates into the date search on the Dashboard for ‘My Upcoming Shifts’ and ‘Open Shifts’ would not return any results.
  • We’ve corrected an issue with Autoscheduler and scheduling a maximum of 2 shifts per day with non back-to-back shifts.

Now the excitement! Although we will not be releasing any major features or functionality for LibStaffer in this release, we’ve been working meticulously behind the scenes to bring you an awesome new feature that involves a lot of back end work. Multi-language selection is coming! The feature converts all of the system generated text in LibStaffer (including the public calendar view and public calendar widget) to the language selected. We will initially support a select few languages, then take requests for additional languages for inclusion in future releases. Your help with creating the translations is always welcome and appreciated!

Upcoming LibStaffer Training Sessions:

LibAnswers

We’re continuing to chug away at Co-Op related functionality, but have several fixes to share in the meantime:

  • Admin-level users can no longer delete their own accounts – this prevents the situation where an admin is cleaning up site records and inadvertently deletes their own account, which effectively locks you out of the site (oops!). To see this in action head to Admin > Accounts and note how you can’t delete yourself. 🙂
  • In an effort to make it easier to locate the LibAnswers queue question form, we’ve added links on various admin settings pages (including the overall Admin list of queues) to help you locate where the public question form lives. To see this in action, admins can head to Admin > Queues.
  • Previously in Reference Analytics, if you filtered a list of transactions by a search term in the internal note field, and then exported those results, the resulting export was returning all results. We’ve updated this so that now the export will return just the filtered results.
  • When logging into LibChat, the Settings tab is now the default tab you see (vs. the Chat tab). This change relates to upcoming Co-Op related functionality. Review / select what you want to monitor and head on over to the Chat tab!
  • We fixed an issue in the chat widget builder – the {{ domain }} template tag will now work properly in widget builder view. It’s always worked correctly in the live widget itself, this issue only impacted viewing the widget in the widget builder.
  • We’ve fixed an issue where, in some cases, if you had LibChat running on one computer and then signed yourself out and then in again from another computer, you could show as “offline” to internal departments. This has now been fixed, so online/offline toggles should now work as expected.

Upcoming LibAnswers Training Sessions:

We have a bunch of LibAnswers sessions for you this month, including sessions at some different times than our usual! See our whole calendar for the month of August for dates and times. Sessions include:

  • Planning Your LibAnswers Site Workshop
  • Setting Up Queues & Answering Tickets
  • Personal Chat Settings & Views
  • LibChat Setup & Answering Chats
  • Best Practices for FAQs
  • Customizing Your LibChat Widgets
  • …and more!

Also check out our recorded sessions!

LibCRM

While the list of new features and fixes may be short for this LibCRM release, a lot has happened on the back end to improve the structure of the system. The back end updates mainly relate to overhauling the back end API (not visible to customers), which will help us improve and create fantastic new features and functions in the future.

Projects

No more do you have to create projects from scratch. Instead use the powerful new Project Templates option, which allows you to create and copy templates! Head to Projects > New Project > and check the “Is This a Template?” checkbox to create a new template. Once the template is created, you can then head to Projects > Template Projects to see the full list and edit or delete them. Click the name of the template to add related tasks. When this template is used to create a new project, all of those tasks are copied into the new project – a huge time saver!

Other Updates & Improvements

  • Data Imports now better handle errors and duplicate records.
  • Reports: In this release we focused on Custom Fields Filters in Projects. We made improvements to the date type field and fixed where the system was not removing selected conditions and/or values when a new search is performed.

[Back to Top]

That’s it for this round of updates from Springy HQ. We would like to thank you, our user community, for sharing all your great ideas with us! We love making them a reality and look forward to bringing you many more improvements in 2019. We are always here for you if have any suggestions or questions.

LibGuides and LibApps Updates Coming Your Way!

LibGuides Update

We have some great updates coming by the end of this week to LibGuides, LibApps, and LibAuth to go with the official changing of the seasons. Happy fall to our fellow Northern Hemisphere denizens, and Happy Spring to our customers on the other side of the world!

To kick us off, we’re pleased to announce that you can now Export All Rows for LibGuides Homepage and Guides statistical reports. So many have requested this that I’m sure there will be fireworks and bonfires in celebration. 🙂  To export your results, just run a report from Statistics > Homepage or Statistics > Guides, then click the Export All button. No more paging through results! Just download and slice and dice to your heart’s content.

Also new in LibGuides:

If the database that you’re adding to a guide is hidden, you’ll see text indicating that:
screenshot

Ability to edit the friendly URL of a blog post! Note that guide blogs must have friendly URLs assigned at the guide and page level for this feature to appear:
screenshot of the post edit screen

Ability to add Primo as a search source for LibGuides. Now you can add search results from your Primo system as a tab or Bento box in your LibGuides system. This will be available from LibAnswers search in a future release.
screenshot

We try to do at least one accessibility fix each LibGuides release, and this one is no exception: If your databases’ descriptions are set to “hover over title” or “hover over (i) icon,” those pop-over descriptions aren’t read aloud when databases appear on a guide. Thanks for letting us know, Ken! We’ve fixed that in your honor. ❤️

We also have a swarm of little fixes to report:

  • AZ Import > vendors are added and updated properly.
  • AZ.php > the correct container class is applied when you use a custom footer.
  • Accounts > Email options > Help ID has been corrected.
  • Names now appear underneath profile boxes on the A-Z and Subject pages.
  • XML exports sent to Summon now use the correct “last updated” date for guides.
  • Accounts > Add > Contributor level is no longer grayed out.
  • The Guides list filters properly when you have an apostrophe in a group name.
  • We corrected an issue with password-protected reserves documents and the www version of a domain.
  • Discussion Boards: Regular level accounts can invite patron accounts from the guide edit page.
  • Guide edit > add editor > we fixed the ability to create a new Editor account from here.
  • Custom metadata has been added to guides rendered via widgets (and therefore to LTI).

We have also done a ton of performance and optimization fixes all across the codebase, so you’ll see things like the Assets data table perform better.

Also don’t miss this month’s Brunch ‘n’ Learn: “LibGuides Lab Work-In: Hands-On Help for Your Staff.” Check out this and other LibGuides training sessions live, or watch recorded videos.

LibApps

We have made a couple of improvements to LibApps as well. Now when you export all your LTI instances, the Content column just has the name of the matches content rather than the HTML link.

We also made it so that if you request that we remove your custom SSL certificate so that you can start using Let’s Encrypt (free!), there’s no gap in HTTPS coverage.

LibAuth

Over in LibAuth, we now support the Location attribute for SIP2 Connections, updated Federation metadata to use SHA256, and fixed an issue where the General pane of the LDAP configuration screen was not saved when you edited the login form tab.

Gearing Up for Fall with Additions to LibGuides

LibGuides UpdateSummer is winding down here in the Northern Hemisphere, and we know lots of folks are getting ready for back-to-school. We’ve been getting ready, too! In addition to some back-end performance improvements for LibGuides, we area also pleased to tell you that we have a few features and fixes to report for our August release. This code release has already gone out to all regions, so all of the things below are ready and waiting.

Blog Tune-Up

We’ve made a few changes to blogs inside LibGuides! Whether you use the System Blog or you have blog pages added to your guides, you’ll notice:
  • The addition of an anchor link for every post that will jump you down to the comments section
  • On the edit side, the addition of each post’s public URL near the title, for easy copying-and-pasting.
  • Blog post authors will receive an email each time a comment is left (unless they’re the commenter!)
  • A larger compose area when writing a blog post, as well as a rearrangement of some of the elements on the compose screen for better usability.
  • Images within blog posts are now automatically constrained within the post’s container, and book covers have the same CSS selectors as they do when added to a regular guide page.

Get Secure with HTTPS

We’ve been writing a lot lately about HTTPS and security. If you haven’t changed your LibGuides site to require all traffic to go over the secure HTTPS protocol, now’s a great time! We recently made a security change for blogs which also applies to Discussion Boards, if you’re a LibGuides CMS subscriber. All pages that accept user input (like blogs with comments, and like discussion board threads) are now required to be secure.

To require your site to be secure, log into LibApps and go to Admin > Domains & Certificates > click the padlock icon for your site > Force HTTPS > click the Required button. Before you do, you’ll want to review your content and make sure that all your media/widgets, images, and other embedded content are changed to https, if it’s supported. This FAQ will tell you more about what to do.

Getting Right to SSO

It’s now possible to take users directly to your SSO login form, if you would like the public side of your site to be protected by this additional security. If you have set up a site-wide LibAuth rule to restrict the viewing of the public side of your site AND you also have one (and only one) LibAuth configuration set up, users will be taken directly to the SSO login page, rather than to the LibApps login page. Read more about restricting access to your site with LibAuth.

Updated LibAuth Code

Speaking of LibAuth, we have completely rewritten the back-end in order to make it faster, more extensible, and easier to add features to. Have a wishlist item for authenticating your users inside Springy products? Drop us a line!

Small Fixes and Features

As they used to say on TV, “But wait, there’s more!” We have a few additional updates to share:
  • Accessibility: The A-Z list no longer contains duplicate IDs when databases appear in the main list and the sidebar.
  • When an account is created, the name of the person who created the account is included in the Welcome email sent to the new account holder.
  • You can now export all Database and non-Database assets using the Export All button, regardless of how many assets you have in your system.
  • You can now export your LTI Instances using the Export All button–even if there are thousands of them!
  • You can identify media/widget asset code more accurately when using the filters on Content > Assets.
  • Protecting a site, guide, group, or any combination of those works correctly in LibAuth now, even when you’re using a guide as your custom system homepage.
  • The Domains & Certificates table appears appropriately when using IE11. (Please keep your browsers up-to-date for functionality and security reasons! 🙂 )

New LibAuth US Hardware Coming Your Way!

Update image

Just a quick post to let you know that on Wednesday, July 18, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time, we will be moving the US LibAuth server to new hardware. We’ve chosen this time because it seems to be the slowest time for all our US and Australian customers using this server. There will be up to 5 minutes of downtime while we make this change, which means that logging in via LibAuth for US customers may be unavailable during this time. No other application or function will be affected. The IP address of the server will NOT change, so if your use of LibAuth relies on letting a certain IP address through the firewall, you can rest assured; that will still work.

Fetch, LibInsight, Fetch! Good LibInsight!

LibInsight Update

It’s nearly Independence Day here in the U.S., and your friends at Springy have a firecracker of an announcement for you: SUSHI scheduling! You can now schedule the automated harvesting of supported SUSHI reports, on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annual basis, to your E-Journals / Databases or eBooks datasets. Gone will be the days of retrieving one file at a time (but you still can, if you want to!). Just set it, and forget it, until it’s time to analyze. You will receive an email each time a file is successfully harvested and added to your dataset, or if a fetch fails for any reason.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • Your SUSHI credentials from e-resources vendors.
  • The list of reports that are supported by each vendor. We support DB1(r4), DB3 (r3), PR1 (r4), JR1 (r4), BR2 (r4), but not all vendors make all of these available via SUSHI.
  • A LibInsight E-Journals / Databases dataset, or an eBooks dataset, with platforms added.
    Protip: Be sure to specify your SUSHI provider in your platform information. This will mean that the SUSHI provider is pre-selected when you set up a new SUSHI schedule. To get to Platform Information quickly, click Datasets in the orange command bar and look for the cog icon.
To set up a new schedule, go to that dataset’s Record Data page, choose a platform, click Schedule Future SUSHI Harvesting, and click Add New.

Please see our help documentation for E-Journals / Databases and eBooks datasets for complete information on when your scheduled SUSHI files will be harvested and added to your system. If you’re not signed up for today’s Getting Started with LibInsight training session, check out past recordings, and keep an eye on our training calendar for more upcoming sessions.

ICYMI – Other Recent Updates

Here are some additional features and fixes we’ve added to LibInsight:
E-Journals / Databases & eBooks Datasets
  • It’s now possible to add Cost Data for future years.
  • Regular users with a dataset Admin permissions are now able to add platforms.
  • We added support for SUSHI harvesting from Thieme, Adam Matthew Digital, Lexis/Nexis, and Springer Nature.
Custom Datasets
  • If your custom dataset’s timestamp is set to “Show One Date Only,” and the field is set to “Show Time,” a time picker is displayed rather than a date picker.
  • We fixed a couple of issues with chart labels.
  • We now accept dash-delimited data in addition to slash-delimited data. (Slash dot dash dot!)
Dashboards
  • You can add a chart to a Dashboard graphing “Entered by” for the records in a dataset. Useful if Reference transactions or Instruction session data are entered by lots of different people.
  • Numeric fields used in Dashboard charts are SUMmed rather than COUNTed.
  • If a field is used in a Dashboard, you will not be able to delete it from its dataset until you remove it from the Dashboard.
  • LibInsight now uses HSTS, and all API endpoints are HTTPS.
Other Stuff
  • If you delete custom chart colors in System Settings, we’ve restored the defaults for you.
  • You can now download all library data from your Gate Count dataset in Analysis, rather than one library at a time.

Mid-year LibGuides Updates are Coming Your Way!

LibGuides UpdateWe have been working hard at Springy HQ to bring you some exciting LibGuides updates and improvements. This month we’ve worked quite a lot on the back end (and are working on a complete rewrite of LibAuth!) to make various pieces of LibGuides work faster and more smoothly, as well as these features and fixes. This code update will be released to all regions by the end of this week. If you don’t see them yet, it means we haven’t updated your region’s servers yet. 🙂

Security & Privacy Updates

reCAPTCHA on the password reset page – Forgot your password? No problem! Now when you need to reset your password, you’ll see that familiar “I am not a robot” checkbox that you’ve probably seen in lots of other places. This added layer of protection will prevent bots from successfully submitting this request.

screenshot

Updated New Account page – Now when you create a new LibGuides account, you’ll be taken to a page dedicated to this process, rather than seeing the information in a small pop-up box. This additional real estate lets us display our privacy information, so that you be advised how we use cookies and the IP address of the new account holder. For more information on how we utilize these, read our privacy policy.

Code check for Media/Widget assets

Have you ever pasted some code into a widget asset and gotten some really unexpected results? Sometimes code copied from another site contains incomplete HTML or is missing a closing tag or two. Never fear! We’ve implemented a check when saving new widget code. If you happen to write or paste HTML code that is missing a tag or that contains tags that will mess up your guide, we’ll warn you!

Smaller fixes and features

  • We updated our back-end processing for importing information from Serials Solutions.
  • We fixed a bug that prevented database description popovers from closing after a database opened in a new tab.
  • We fixed a bug preventing the yearly guide stats from updating on the system homepage.
  • We fixed an error preventing people from subscribing to a blog from a secondary site domain.
  • All new LibCal, LibGuides, and LibAnswers app installations will be set to require HTTPS.
  • We fixed an issue with the character counter for guide custom JS/CSS code.
  • When you publish a previously-saved draft blog post, the page now refreshes properly.
  • We fixed an issue that caused the assets data table to break if you assigned dozens of subjects to an asset.
  • We removed outdated export buttons from the Content > Guides page. Use the Export All features to export this information.

Privacy-related Updates and More for Your Mid-May

LibGuides Update

Coming this week! This month’s LibGuides & LibApps code release includes a slew of privacy-related updates. We recently announced updates to our privacy policy and tools per the upcoming enforcement of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. If you’re new to the GDPR, the enforcement date is May 25, and we at Springshare took the opportunity to review our privacy policies, procedures, and functionality. Check-out our full GDPR compliance plan and policy.

As part of this week’s updates, we’re adding in new privacy control features and we’re extending these “GDPR tools” to all clients around the world, not just our clients in the European Union. Any library, anywhere, using Springshare tools can take advantage of these new features.

Alert your users to how their information is used with a Privacy Alert Banner

We’ve added a new tab in Look & Feel that allows you to enable a small banner that shows on your public pages. The default language is short-and-sweet and also links to a longer Privacy Statement that details cookies and how we use information to collect statistics. This is a dismissible banner similar to ones you may have seen on other websites. It’s off by default; turn it on by going to Admin > Look & Feel > User Privacy Alert.

screenshot

You’ll also see privacy information displayed on your Account settings page, and if you use Patron Accounts, your patrons will see this information on their Account settings page. Patrons will also see this information on the Self-Registration screen, if you have Self-Registration set up.

Being GDPR-compliant also means providing a way for you to opt-in to the emails that you receive from us. Now when you go to your Account Settings page, you’ll be able to opt into the three types of emails that we send: our semi-regular Newsletter (full of tips and tricks as well as news!); our Promotions emails; and word of upcoming webinars, online training, and SpringyCamp events. We hope you’ll opt in for all three! We’re commited to only sending you one email/month in each of those three email cateogries. You can change your options at any time by going to LibApps > My Account.

New to Image Manager—Location Mappings!

Afraid to delete an image because you’re not sure whether it’s being used inside LibGuides? Never fear! Easily see where your images are used, regardless of their location! When you go to Image Manager, you’ll now see a number below each image. Click on the number to see where images are used. Potential locations are:

  • Guides:
    • Rich Text content
    • Gallery Boxes
    • Blog pages > posts and comments
    • Discussion Board Pages > posts and replies
  • System blog > posts and comments
  • System & Public Discussion board > posts and replies
  • Assets*:
    • Database thumbnails
    • Link thumbnails
    • Document thumbnails

You’ll see the mappings when you open Image Manager from LibApps or when editing content in LibGuides.

* Book covers generally are retrieved from Syndetics or Amazon and so are not included here.

screenshot

We will include the locations of images used inside your LibCal and LibAnswers sites, if applicable, in a future release.

Blog Subscriber Management!

Dying to know who has subscribed to your system or guide blogs? Us too! Now you can view the list and, if necessary, unsubscribe email addresses. Just click Blog Management on any admin-side Blog page to view and manage your list.

Accessibility Update: Resource Icons

We made a change last year that saw blank ALT text added to Resource Icons. We heard from several of you who pointed out that while these are small, they tend to convey meaning, and sometimes even are linked, which means our move to declare these little beauties “decorative” was a move in the wrong direction. We’ve fixed that! The title of a Resource Icon is now used as its ALT text, and icons (and their links) are screen-reader and keyboard accessible.

As a reminder, your mileage may vary depending on your browser, operating system, and screenreader. We test with widely-used accessibility checkers, browsers, and screenreaders, but accessibility is often a moving target. Did we miss something? Let us know! (link opens in a new tab).

Small Fixes and Features

  • When only one expert is assigned to a subject, that person’s full profile box is shown.
    screenshot
  • Profile boxes added as custom boxes to guide templates now show the person’s correct title.
  • The A-Z databases page was changed so that it does not load Bootstrap when the admin has specified that Bootstrap should not be used across the site.
  • We corrected a name spacing issue that was interfering with LibraryThing widgets.
  • Since the Email Me button in a profile box is a mailto: link, we now validate email addresses entered there.
  • You are now able to edit link assets when you have filtered the assets list by URL contents.
  • We implemented the new Google logo for the Google Search content type, as well as added a missing ARIA label.
  • We added the white background to the LibApps menu, when viewed on a mobile device.
  • We corrected the processing of Gallery Boxes so that all slides do not show momentarily in Internet Explorer, and all Gallery Box content loads more speedily.
  • Notification emails for blog posts now contain a full URL rather than a relative one, which was confusing some email programs.
  • We inadvertently changed how A-Z database search results were presented. They’re now back to a single list, sorted by Relevance.
  • Resource icons order has been restored to sort by the order in which they were added.
  • In keeping with common practice, RSS feeds for blog pages now return the first 10 posts, rather than the entire blog feed.

Brand New Season, Brand New LibGuides Features

We are excited to bring you some big new LibGuides features by the end of this week, just in time for Spring (or Fall, depending on where you are!), including the ability to put your entire site behind your Single Sign-On system with LibAuth authentication, search-and-replace for E-Reserves Items, and a bevy of other fixes.

Read on!

screenshot

Full SSO for Your Guides with LibAuth

Coming this week is the ability to place more public LibGuides pages behind your SSO with LibAuth, whether it’s a single guide, a restricted group of guides (LibGuides CMS only) or your entiresite. We’ve got you covered whether you are required to hide your entire site from the open web, would like to provide access to a group of guides to your campus, or make a single guide available just to one constituent group.

You can set up a LibAuth connection using any of the supported configurations: SAML/Shibboleth/ADFS, CAS, LDAP, SIP2, your own hosted script, or either the InCommon or UK Federation. Securing a guide, group, or site is done in two steps:

  • Set up and test your LibAuth configuration in LibApps at Admin > LibAuth Authentication
  • Set up the desired restriction in LibGuides at Admin > System Settings > Access Restrictions > LibAuth Authentication Rules

Let’s Encrypt Automation

We’ve written a lot lately about site security, and this post is no exception. Coming this week is automation for the installation of Let’s Encrypt certificates for LibCal and LibAnswers sites. Need a secure site but can’t really shell out for a custom security certificate? We got you! Just change your custom domain’s DNS to point to the correct secure endpoint, and we’ll do the rest.

For more in depth information about Let’s Encrypt, read this blog post.

Filters for Non-Database Assets

We’ve updated the Assets page with new filters so that you can search your growing repository with ease! Search not only by type, but owner, subject, URL, and even for code contained in your Media/Widget content. Want to know how many YouTube widgets you have? No problem! Want to see the vast array of Animal Husbandry resources you have? A cinch! Just go to Content > Assets and search to your heart’s content.

screenshot

Profile Box: Random Settings!

Are you one of those folks that used the rotating box code to show off a selection of your guide owners in LibGuides v1? Well now you can do that in LibGuides v2! After adding a profile box to your guide, you can set it to display a random profile each time the page is loaded. You’ll see two options: one will display a random profile selected from all profiles in your system, Admins, Regular, Editors, and Contributors; the other will choose only from profiles that own published guides.

screenshot

E-Reserves Items Search & Replace

We have added E-Reserves items to the Search & Replace tool. If you’ve discovered that a title was recorded incorrectly and you’ve re-used the item in every. single. English. course. for the semester, you can save a slew of clicks by using S&R.

It works like the other S&R tools: you can search for E-Reserve item name, description, URL, and the fields that are particular to the various E-Reserves Item types, like Article Title and DOI. Head over to Tools > Search & Replace to get started.

screenshot

Smaller Features and Fixes

We are also including a bunch of smaller features and fixes that we’re sure you’ll love!

  • Gallery boxes added as custom boxes to E-Reserves course pages display properly.
  • If you uncheck “use this image in my guide” while uploading a new image to Image Manager, the Upload New Image button persists after upload.
  • The mSite builder “site visited” cookie is now 2 minutes instead of 2 hours.
  • We fixed the ability to add an IP restriction from inside a guide as well as from Group settings.
  • We added missing content types to the Add Content Item dialog on the Content > Assets page.
  • Editor account levels are now able to delete rich text content items on guides they edit.
  • In Tools > Data Exports > XML, the Download icon is not available until the file is ready to be downloaded.
  • Links to guides submitted via publishing workflow are no longer relative.
  • An error in the search sources was fixed, allowing EBSCO Discovery Service contents to be retrieved.
  • We removed the outdated “scheme” attribute from meta tags.
  • We changed the way that guide titles sort, so that whole and decimal numbers are sorted properly.
  • We added the URL to the export for non-database assets.
  • We changed the text for the unsubscribe links in blog post emails to be more accessible.

Some Impending LibGuides Updates to Warm your January!

We’ve been kindling the fires of Midwinter (will we see you there??) up here at Springy HQ by coding up some great winter features you can use to spruce up your LibGuides. Just for funsies, we’re throwing in an update to LibAuth configurations, too. 🙂 These features will be live in all regions within a few days. Check ‘em out:

LibAuth supports uploading authorized values

Screenshot

Click to Enlarge

If you use LibAuth groups, you now have a couple of ways to automate the population of the Allowed Values field for your group attributes. Head over to LibApps > Admin > LibAuth Authentication and click the edit button for your LibAuth configuration. You can either upload a CSV file containing your Allowed Values, or you can specify a URL from which we can fetch the Allowed Values, which we’ll do nightly. What does this feature do for you? You might have a group of rooms in LibCal that are only bookable by current students from a certain college, or by patrons who meet certain requirements. Use this field to let LibAuth know which people are allowed to book.

Additional customizable language keys

All of the below have been added to Admin > Look & Feel > Language Options > Language Customization. Don’t see one of these for your language? Kindly shoot us an email, and we’ll add it for you. Please include a translated phrase in your language that is as close to the English original as is possible. You can customize it further in your system if desired.

Interested in contributing translations for the public side of LibGuides in a language that’s not currently available? We’d love your help!

  • Screenshot of the AZ list

    Click to enlarge

    Key 373 is the phrase “Alt. Names/Keywords” that is used for that field in your A-Z Databases list. When you change this key, the changes will be visible on the public and admin side, for consistency.

  • Key 375 is the label “Popular” that appears next to Database assets that you’ve designated as such.
  • Key 387 is the text of the tooltip that appears when you hover over the website/blog icon in a profile box.
  • Key 376 is the word “for” in Database search results.
  • Key 275 is the word “All” that appears at the beginning of the alphabetical browse listing on your A-Z Databases page.
  • Key 123 is the phrase “Last updated” that appears when you hover over a guide’s last updated date on your system homepage.
  • Key 380 is the button text that appears next to the guide sort options on your system homepage guides list.
  • Keys 362 and 365 pertain to the Courses tab on Subject pages and apply only if you have the E-Reserves module.
  • Keys 100, 376, and 322 pertain to information shown on system search results screens in Bento Box format.
  • E-Reserves item modals now correctly display your customized language when you view an individual e-reserves item.

API response changes (LibGuides CMS only)

We’ve made some small changes to the v1.2 API used for creating and updating database assets. If you’re using these API calls, you’ll now be warned if it contains errors. If your API call is successful, we’ll let you know which fields were updated. For more information, please see the documentation for each API call in LibGuides > Tools > API > v1.2. Here is a sample successful call showing all the fields that were updated. Please note that GET requests for A-Z assets were not changed.

Screenshot of API response

E-Reserves updates!

  • When you have item search turned on, “Documents” becomes the default tab.
  • When you do a search but then click to another section of E-Reserves, your search terms are cleared, and you are presented with the entire list of available items.
  • When an item appears in more than one course, its name is spelled out in search results, rather than the phrase “View Item.”
  • In E-Reserves > Settings, you can specify whether the proxy setting is on when creating new items.
  • When adding a new E-Reserves item, required fields are marked with a red asterisk.

Other small updates

  • Email notifications sent to subscribers of your blogs will contain the blog name in the subject line.
  • We replaced the orange “loading dots” with ones that move at an accessible refresh rate.
  • If your custom SSL certificate is expiring in under 60 days, we will email you. We will email you again 7 days before it expires, if you have not renewed it. Please note that this email is sent to the person who uploaded the certificate files.

Things we fixed

  • Sites with guide titles using CJK characters display correctly when displayed in an LMS via the LTI tool.
  • Regular-level users can edit database assets that they own.
  • You can add a book to a blog post by just pasting its ISBN into the Add Book dialog.
  • When you check “Show entire post” for a blog widget, the “Show Images” checkbox works properly.
  • When you add a Database asset to a guide, the Description Display preference is preserved, unless you choose a different option.
  • When you go to a specific page in our support site and log in, you’re taken to the proper page instead of the support site home page.
  • We optimized the query behind the LTI Instances page; it’s super, super fast!
  • We fixed the “Filter by Owner” menu on the A-Z list so that it includes everyone.
  • The number of profiles listed on the profiles page matches the number of profiles displayed.

LibGuides Update: E-Reserves Item Search, Patron Login with LibAuth, LibAuth Setup Wizard, and a Ton More Updates!

E-Reserves Search

Check out this giant present for your holiday celebrations!

Or if you’re not into December holidays, Happy 2018 from Springy to you! 🙂

There are a ton of new features for you to explore in LibGuides this month.

Log into LibApps patron accounts with LibAuth

If you head over to LibApps > Admin > Manage Patron accounts = and if you see accounts listed there, those users can now sign into Discussion Boards and Blog Comments using your local authentication layer (LDAP, CAS, AD, etc.).  If you don’t see any accounts listed there, good news, you can batch import! This way, your users can actively participate and comment in your LibGuides system using their trusted and known local authentication layer and without having to remember yet another login. Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Go to LibApps > Admin > Manage Patron Accounts to create accounts via import, or to LibApps > Admin > Manage Patron Accounts > Settings to enable self-registration.
  2. Set up your LibAuth configuration.
  3. Be sure to set the “Allow logging into LibApps using this authentication?” option at the bottom of the screen to “Yes.”

LibAuth Setup Wizard

If your institution is a member of the InCommon Federation or UK Federation, you can now set up a LibAuth connection in just a few clicks. Just choose your institution name from the setup drop-down, and we’ll create a configuration for you, pasting in your metadata URL and filling in machine-readable attributes. If you’re not a member of either federation, or you wish to use a different protocol outside federation setup, no problem! Just choose to set up a configuration manually. We continue to support SAML / Shibboleth / ADFS, CAS, SIP2, LDAP, and a self-hosted script of your own creation.

Let’s Encrypt support

We are pleased to announce support for free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates. Similar to the certificates that we manage for Springy domains (e.g., libguides.com), these short-term certificates for your LibGuides domains will be installed and renewed by us at no cost or bother to you. Simply change your site’s domain to your desired custom domain, and we’ll do the rest!

Already have a custom domain? No problem! We’ll be requesting and installing Let’s Encrypt certificates for LibGuides custom domains  in the coming weeks. If you prefer to upload your own SSL certificate, you can still do that, no problem! Sites that have already uploaded their own certificates will not be changed, although you are welcome to switch from your own certificate to Let’s Encrypt. Please contact support to get started: support@springshare.com.

Let’s Encrypt certificates are currently only available for LibGuides sites with custom domains but will be coming to LibAnswers and LibCal custom domain sites in the near future.

As always, we manage the SSL certificates for your LibWizard, LibStaffer, and LibInsight sites.

E-Reserves item search

Now you can provide a deeper search of your e-reserves content! Go into E-Reserves > Settings > Search and enable item search to see new tabbed search results on your E-Reserves pages that includes all E-Reserves items. Search results include courses like they always have, but item search retrieves documents that are not assigned to a course as well as those that are. Visibility dates and access rules (passwords) for courses and items are also enforced.  The new enhanced display also shows you which Subjects courses are assigned to.

If you don’t want item level search, just head to E-Reserves > Settings > Search to disable the item level search.

Screenshot of e-reserves item search results

E-Reserves page URLs are “savable”

Want to send a link to your e-reserves courses by Instructor? By Subject? Now you can! Any URL that you navigate to on your public e-reserves pages is now savable and shareable. Bonus: this extends to search results, too! You can create a search retrieving exactly the desired subset of courses and documents and forward that on to the appropriate audience. Pssst, we heard you! We’ll be making this change for the LibGuides system and group home pages in a release coming up in a few short weeks.

AZ fixes and features

There are two new filters on the A-Z Databases management page: Asset Owner and Last Updated date. Use these to search for a subset of databases maintained by a certain person, or to make sure that updates have been done timely.

Screenshot of new filters on the AZ management page

Additional AZ Fixes and Features

  • Login credential updates save correctly
  • Column filters on AZ settings page work correctly
  • Counts of popular databases are correct on the Analyze Holdings page
