The LibCal team has been hard at work on new Appointments features and has a few other improvements to share!
Booking limits for Appointments have arrived. We’ve added the ability to set daily, weekly, monthly, and/or yearly limits on the number of appointments that can be booked by each patron/student.
In February, we also added the ability to list Appointments by location on the LibCal homepage, Hours page, and individual event pages. This means, students and patrons can easily jump to the type of appointment they'd like to book, especially if they are not sure of the name of the appropriate person to meet.

February's release included an exciting update for the E-Reserves item request form.
We’ve made the E-Reserves request form more user-friendly by getting rid of the accordion collapsible sections, indicating required fields with a red asterisk, and changing how the “Type” choices work.
Additionally, you can indicate whether these fields should be required or hidden.

The LibAnswers team has been hard at work refreshing the Reference Analytics codebase! The February release also includes a mobile chat improvement.
We’ve refreshed the entire Ref. Analytics code base, with the goal of updating code and improving response times.
In this release, we improved how chat widgets open on mobile devices. Now, most chat widgets (everything except for embedded chat widgets) will pop open in a new tab/window when viewed and accessed on handheld mobile devices.
Also included in the February release:

The LibInsight team had a few things to share in February!
The “New Account” and “Import LibApps Accounts” functions were moved to their own pages for easier use. In Admin > Manage Accounts, admins will find three tabs - Existing accounts, New Account, Import LibApps Accounts.
As a processing and performance improvement, the following dataset types now only accept uploads in .csv (Comma-Separated Values) format:
This means fewer issues as a result of extraneous data hidden within the file you're uploading! To save any Excel file as a .csv file, go to File > Save As.. and choose Comma-Delimited file.
