How can we improve Alma?

Sort record type and date columns in Library calendar opening hours

Every year we need to reset our calendar events, exceptions and sometimes we even tweak our standard opening hours.

This job would be much easier if we could sort the entries in our opening hours screen (Fulfillment > Library management > Opening hours) by record type, valid from (date) and valid to (date).

        I am using the new UI. I just completed my winter and spring break calendar exceptions for 8 libraries.

        Please leave the record type column alone. The Standard Hours are at the top now. The Valid From column is in chronological order for me already. I start at the top and edit the exceptions for the next time that exception rolls around. I have descriptions on my exceptions to remind me what they are.

        I have to do exceptions 4 to 5 months in advance. In my main library I have 85 calendar records, 78 of which are exceptions. I will admit when I use days of the week to define exceptions, they appear out of order, but the valid from column keeps them in enough of an order for me. I only use specific days if I can cut down on the number of exceptions.

        This lack of functionality is extremely frustrating (for example, when Monday is listed 15 lines below the rest of the entries) and makes a tedious task even more tedious.
