Include storage location ID field in pick from shelf API's for display in Alma Mobile
See this email thread from Alma-L:
We would need to enhance the data returned in the pick from shelf APIs to include the storage location ID field in order for it to appear in the display in Alma Mobile.
Would you put this on the Idea Exchange (http://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com) and let others comment on your idea? We would like to find out if other customers would also like to see this field in the Pick From Shelf display.

Subject: [ALMA-L] Alma mobile app customization
I work at an off-site storage facility that uses the Storage Location ID field to locate our materials in our warehouse environment. This field is crucial to pulling materials in addition to call number and unique barcode. However, the Alma mobile app as is doesn’t include that Storage Location ID field. Right now it includes the ISSN which I was hoping we could replace with the Storage Location ID field.
Has anyone at their institution edited/customized what is displayed in the app to pull materials?
Is this a change we buy from Alma? Is this hiring a programmer to change coding?

It would be nice if this was exposed on pull slips too, but it is not...
Full functionality would make this a great way to only use Alma to manage the remote storage location. We have built an API to put things into trays, but now we can't easily pull the materials!

In addition to the Storage Location ID field added, the list would need to be able to be arranged by that field to aid in retrieval.
