Q. Electronic Delivery Utility (Formerly Odyssey Helper)
Electronic Delivery Utility (Formerly Odyssey Helper)
What is it?
Electronic Delivery Utility is a feature that allows you to process scanned articles in batches for document delivery and lending.
How does it help?
Batches of scanned articles are sent in a network folder. This reduces the work of delivering and updating each request individually, saving your staff a great deal of time. As a result, it shortens the time to complete article request processing.
There are two keys you may want to set to tell the Electronic Delivery Utility where to look for files: ElectronicDeliveryUtilityImagesPathDocDel and ElectronicDeliveryUtilityImagesPathLending. These keys tell the Electronic Delivery Utility where to save the scanned files that will be processed by the Electronic Delivery Utility. Odyssey Defaults
One of the perks of Electronic Delivery Utility is that it will automatically apply billing charges when needed. In the Lending process type, just click on the Auto Bill Default button before delivering the articles.
By default, Electronic Delivery Utility stores its sent files in a Backup folder (found within the OdysseyHelperImagesPath directories). Keep an eye on this because it can begin to take up a lot of storage space. To easily empty this periodically, simply click on the Empty Backup Folder button. Try doing this once a week.
