Follett Announces Key Updates to Its Market-Leading Follett® Destiny Solution


Follett Destiny® 14.5 features improved reporting, Destiny Discover® homepage customizations.

With the addition of key reporting capabilities and new homepage customization options, Follett Destiny 14.5 is giving users a more efficient, streamlined experience from start to finish. The updates encompass the company’s market-leading products for Destiny® Library Manager, Destiny® Resource Manager, and Follett Destiny Discover®.

“We’re listening as our customers share their needs and challenges,” said Nader Qaimari, President, Follett School Solutions. “Destiny 14.5 gives educators features and capabilities that not only will save them time, but also help them better manage digital resources and make smart decisions on behalf of their students.”

The basic reporting features in Destiny have been improved across the board, explained Don Rokusek, Program Director for Follett Destiny® Library Manager. New district reports, for example, give users an at-a-glance view into each school’s resources, and while another improved report allows users to see prices of overdue materials in Destiny Resource Manager.

“These latest updates make it easier to complete a variety of tasks – such as printing labels and exporting data to Excel – as well as gathering valuable data on usage and circulation, which can be used to support funding and curriculum decisions,” Rokusek said. “Customers can spend less time searching for the data they need to create reports and more time with students.”

Additional Destiny 14.5 improvements include:

  • Usage reporting for Lightbox™ titles;
  • The ability to manage the ordering and visibility of collection ribbons on the Follett Destiny Discover® homepage, and easily feature preferred digital resources in a new “links” ribbon;
  • New renewals functionality has been added to Follett Destiny® Resource Manager; and
  • Account information for access to Follett eBooks and audiobooks is automatically maintained with changes to patron information in Destiny.
