  2. Send an email to specific library staff member once an Invoice or Purchase Order is paid for

    I would like a function that you could alert a library staff member once an invoice or purchase order is paid for. Sometimes, library staff need to know that an order has been paid for so they can turn on access or know how much is left to spend on a fund. It would be a neat functionality that a letter can be generated from Alma directly to a library staff member once the PO has been paid.

  3. Allow institutions to configure their own Packaged PO approval rules

    Could we please be provided with an option to disable or configure the auto approval rules of POs containing non 'Purchase/Purchase no Letter' POLs.

    Institutions currently only have control over PO Line level approval rules in Alma and PO rules are limited as per the documentation - https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/010Alma_Online_Help_(English)/020Acquisitions/020Purchasing/060Approving_and_Sending_POs

    "A PO with PO Lines that are not one of the following Acquisition methods will not go to Waiting for Approval:
    • Purchase
    • Purchase No letter"

    Providing us with the option to configure these options ourselves or via support requests to include/exclude specific acquisition methods will give us more flexibility to…

  4. Finished claiming job does not give the library the option to check which vendors received a claim letter

    When a claiming job is finished running in Alma you can view “events” from the finished job. This gives a line for each claim processed in the job, and lists three different identifiers: JOBID, POLINEID and VENDORID. None of these identifiers are searchable for the library, and the library then have no option to control what letters were sent in that specific job. If the identifiers listed in the job events were changed to the PO line reference and the vendor code the library would have the option to find the relevant POL and vendor and…

  5. Ability to aggregate claims to one vendor should be made available for Legal deposit

    For the acquisition method “Purchase” the letter “PO line claim letter” is used, for the acquisition method “Legal deposit” and “Legal deposit - without letter” the “Legal deposit claim letter” is used. For the “Purchase” acquisition method an additional claim letter is available “PO Line Aggregated Claim Letter”, which in the event of there being more than one claim to the same vendor aggregates these into one letter. The same is not available for legal deposit. This means that when we have one large vendor (ex: supplier delivering on behalf of many different publishers), which is common for legal deposit,…

  6. Custom License Terms: HTML to open in new tab

    We have created a custom license term that uses HTML as the value to represent a hyperlink. Currently, the hyperlink resolves the current browser tab to the target URL. It would be preferred that the target URL open a new tab in the same browser, or a new window.

    Ex Libris' support team has confirmed that they are not currently supporting hyperlinks opening in new tabs/windows.
    We have tested using target="_blank" parameters to open in a new tab and adding the rel="noopener noreferrer" parameters, removing quotations in various places, and placing the target in different places in the string --…

  8. Add a new privilege to the "Purchasing Operator" role which will prevent users with this role from being able to delete items

    This Idea was submitted by ExLibris to check the community support for the following enhancemnet:
    Currently, users with "Purchasing Operator" role can delete items, the existing logic behind this is, when a PO line is created (even before it is received), there is a need for the Purchasing Operator to be able to delete the item in case of an error on the order.

    This Idea suggest to add a new privilege to the Purchasing Operator role which will prevent this user from being able to delete items - the new privilege should be enabled by default to maintain existing…

  9. Claiming at Item Level

  10. License field for Purchase Order Line value

    We would like a total values field on the Summary tab of a License that gives us the total cost of all the PO Lines which that license covers. This would tell us quickly the expenditure value of each license in Alma and enable us to prioritise license workflows by expenditure value.

  11. Ability to make financial adjustments to previous fiscal years after rollover

    We would like to be able to make financial adjustments to prior fiscal years after rollover occurs. We want to complete rollover in a timely fashion to be able to continue business as usual, however our University's closing occurs later than we complete rollover in Alma and there are times when I need to adjust Alma to match any last minute general ledger changes.

  12. Allow public display of the AcqWorkOrder type to be customized

  14. Rollover PO lines that are fully invoiced but not paid

    Example:
    1. A PO is created and gets fully invoiced in mid-December.
    2. In January the fiscal period closure happens. Said PO does not get rolled over (as it's fully invoiced).
    3. Sometime later in January the invoice gets paid.

    The conflict lies in step 3: In Alma the payment is linked to the fund from the old year, while our financial department actually payed it from the fund of the new year.

    One possible solution would be in step 2 to also allow rollover of PO lines that are fully invoiced but not paid yet.

  16. Display new Library Review request in the Task List

    Hello, I am a new customer so this may already be possible... but it would be a great help if whenever a new Library Review is requested to be able to quickly see it in the task list.
    It would also handy if you could run a report of all completed reviews. Thanks

  18. Option to configure interested user notification for ebooks to be sent when activation task changed to Done rather than when Activated

    We would like the ability to configure when our interested user notifications are sent for ebooks. We would like the option to send these when the activation task is changed to Done in the Electronic Resource Activation Task List instead of when the ebooks are activated. This would give us the opportunity to check the ebook portfolio links and bibliographic records for our Rialto purchased ebooks before the notifications are sent to the interested users.

  19. Allow default filter settings in searches to be customised

    Dear creative minds,

    There are many search bars in ALMA that have default filter settings. Depending on personal preference and work tasks, the default is not always practical. Time and time again I need to change the filter settings to my particular preference or need. Not efficient in terms of mouse clicks and time!

    This issue is conspicuously time and click-consuming when one tries to add a closed PO line to a portfolio, collection or associate it to another PO line. The default filter is set to 'Active' PO lines, so closed PO lines will not be searched. One needs…

  20. Allow the rollover of a set of POLs or the results of an Alma Analytics query

    It would be nice to be able to roll just a set of of orders, not individual POLs, or specific types of POLs. In our case, we have two libraries that prefer to have their orders rolled over on encumbrance, and the remainder on expenditure plus an FPC factor. We tried doing this this year by separately rolling the specific library's ledger and then associated POLs, but it took days. I think the issue is that it is trying and failing to roll every other active POL, and then just failing on those that do not yet have active funds.…
