Linking bib records based on 830 $x should be optional
Alma currently links bib records based on the presence of the ISSN in the 830 $x. This causes a terribly confusing display in Primo and Alma and is prone to messing up requests. This should be an optional "feature" and not automatically enabled. We do have the option to turn off all related records, but if we use that, we lose all our boundwith relations.
We should not have to delete a valid MARC subfield (830 $x) in order to prevent related holdings record displaying in Alma and Primo.

This other idea is better worded and more broadly addresses the problem: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/33428842-provide-ability-to-turn-off-the-related-record-fun

Agreed. Deleting bibliographic record information to prevent undesirable behaviour is not the way an LMS should work.
We would also love if the related records functionality was optional.
