1. Search inside book text
I think Alfa is one of the most popular book manager for professionals that work with book text rather than read text consistently. So the search inside book reader would be of great help for us!
2. Night mode or colour scheme settings in the reader
I'd like to have a way to change the background and font colours to reflect nighttime reader
3. Allow to create login/password for each user
We are using Alfa eBooks Manager for a business library and would like to provide individual library access to each employee and cancel it when she is fired. I'm sure it will be a killer feature in your software for enterprise libraries.
4. Allow users to create web site plug-ins on their own
Your software provides quite a lot of website integrations, including Amazon, which I really appreciate, but I guess every user has less popular site, she use to buy books book from. And if you create a tool for building integration plug-ins, it would be win-win. Moreover plugin sharing marketplace could be an option
5. Loan feature
I know that I can create custom fields for Loaned/Borrowed books but would like to have dedicated native fields for this task with auto-reminders and opportunity to view the list of borrowed books.
6. Edit metadata in multiple books at once
We have book data in the cards, so why not automate writing these data to files? I'm eager to pay for this feature
7. Custom background for Books view
I like the program, but I wish to set the custom background (color or picture) in the book list
8. Add Android and iOS integration
Would be wonderful if Alfa could scan folders on Android devices and import books from iBooks app
9. Next/Previous buttons in the Book Card
I often need to edit multiple books and have to open every book, save, open next book, save... The buttons to move from one book to another right in the book card would be highly appreciated
10. Enable CSV import to existing books in DB
Currently you can import only new books from CSV file. But if you make it possible to update existing books from CSV there will be a lot of opportunities to edit the database in Excel. You can identify books in CSV by ISBN. Thanks!
