  1. Enable purchase requests from Edit Citations page in Alma

    It would streamline workflows where it's decided additional copies are required for stock if a purchase request could be made from the Edit Citations page within Alma. At the moment requests can only be placed to move or digitise the content.

  2. Purchase order line details (subscriptions)

    Under the note tab gets filled up with "The PO Line has renewed automatically on (renewal date) by the system" as each year passes. This note should be in the history tab. The note field should be about important information pertaining to the subscription only.

  3. Update details of multiple SUSHI accounts at once

    Currently to make changes to a SUSHI account you must do each account individually. This means if some detail of our SUSHI credentials changes for a vendor we have to manually make that change on each SUSHI account we have set up for that vendor, which could be 8+ accounts.

    It would be really good if we could select multiple SUSHI accounts and then make a change across all of them, e.g. updating the URL or RequestorID etc.

  4. Auto update to Resource Locate Status

    When we purchase a material thought the request from Leganto, after the item is delivered and processed by Library, the Resources Locate Status is still "Resource Located" but not "Check Availability", it is necessary to make the Alma update automatically.

  5. delete pol

    We really have the requirement to delete a POL attached to a PO in our daily work, we will have to reopen the POL and then cancel it and then delete it, it’s kind of complicated and can we delete it directly?

  6. Receive on order

    The only way to receive an item on order is to go into the Receive function within Acquisitions and this requires that you have a known POL or browse through the list but that is not a viable option for the amount of orders we have open. The bulk of our materials come on approval so the POL is created in the load process and therefore not noted on the invoice and unknown. In order to receive, staff first search Alma for the correct order record and write down the POL. Then they have to go into Receive and search…

  7. Add platform filter to the "Missing Data"

    The "Missing Data" tab under the Load Usage Data section should have a filter for platform. As I set up more usage reports and as I want to check and make sure all the data came through, it has become more difficult to find the rows that I want to review. A filter for platform will help.

    Thank you!

  8. Option to receive from items list

    Please make it an option to receive an issue, without having to navigate away to the specific "Receiving" page, if you are looking at it on an items list. Often I'll be working on items and notice that one of them is not received when it should be, but I can't change that without interrupting my workflow or opening a new window.

  9. Confirmation message when receiving items for continuous titles

    Please consider adding a confirmation message when an item for a continuous title (e.g. print serial) has been successfully received. This messaging--which would be similar to the "success" screen when checking in serials in Aleph--would make the process much clearer for student workers who often handle this task in academic libraries.

    Thanks for considering!

  10. Enable link from Invoice line to live Purchase Order Line so that data can be updated

    The Alma renewals workflow for continuous resources (Subscription POLs) involves creating Invoices and updating the renewal date and other data such as Notes in the Purchase Order Line. This should be possible as part of a unified workflow when invoicing, i.e. adding the invoice line and then linking through to a live Purchase Order Line to update and save the renewal date etc.
    Currently the Invoice Line PO Line link is View Only which means a separate search and action is required to find and update the renewal dates etc in POLs. This is inefficient and wastes time - given…

  11. Acquisition Renewals for NZ e-collections

    We would like the ability to renew a shared e-collection.
    The new FY year price would be displayed in the negotiated license and then a renew button would be available. the library would see the new FY cost and then renew or cancel that subscription.
    Then this renewal or cancel would notify the NZ administrator.
    (similar to the functionality in ConsortiaManager).

  12. Field to add "Charges" in the price.

    We need a field that allows us to add "Charges" in vendor record or in the POL, now these only allow discounts.

    Nowadays we have to assign this charge manually in the POL's list price.

  13. the closed pol cannot be modified

    Currently the POLs could be modified even if the status is closed. In order to prevent the mistake we wish that the closed pol can not be modified and have a view function for the closed POLs.

  14. Expand the options for rolling over different types of PO Lines differently

    We would like to be able to differentiate how print and electronic POLs roll over.
    If either of the following could be done to address this, it would be great.
    Expand the roll over only certain types POLs list from
    One Time
    Continuous
    Standing Order
    To the full list of POL types, or at least to factor in print vs electronic.

    OR, alter the option to roll a single POL over to instead let you roll over the POLs in a public set.

  15. Please allow adding multiple sequences with numeric prefix.

    Now only one sequence with numeric prefix is allowed; if I want to add multiple sequences with numeric prefix, I have to add a random alphabetic prefix and then remove it. Please allow adding multiple sequences with numeric prefix.

  16. Apply Reporting Code from Encumbrance to Disencumbrance

    In a disencumbrance transaction, Alma does not apply the reporting code assigned to an encumbrance to the disencumbrance. Because we use the reporting codes as a part of funds allocation, this practice causes the disencumbrance to be ignored thus overreporting the encumbrance for the reporting code. Please apply the reporting code of the encumbrance being disencumbered to the transaction of the disencumbrance.

  17. Add option to use hyperlink in license terms

    Add functionality to license terms displayed in Primo under "Show License" to include a hyperlink, or clickable link. It would be helpful to be able to include a URL in the list of license terms, that patrons are able to click. Our institution uses an external tool to help determine terms of use and would like to direct patrons to the tool using a link in the License Terms.

  18. Eliminate the confirmation step when editing item records.

    The process of receiving journal items is unnecessarily slowed down by having to confirm every single edit. Clicking on "Save" should be enough to get the job done. Breaking out Receive as a separate step has already added a step to the process. Please consider any and all ways of reducing the amount of time spent looking at blue spinning circles. Thank you.

  19. Shopping cart color change depending or open or closed orders.

    Currently the shopping cart, indicating order/s, is green. It would be helpful if all the orders were cancelled or closed if the cart were another color, say red. If the order or even 1 order of may are active then the green cart.
