How can we improve Alma?

Persistent search box to display recent searches for all search types eg. PO line

Currently the persistent search box only allows re-running a recent repository search in the recent history drop down. It doesn't remember recent searches for other types eg. Order line, Users, Vendors etc. It would be very useful to remember these searches as many people work in different areas that don't use repository searches that often, but perform other searches.

        In the December 2017 release notes, we can find under Administration and Infrastructure - December 2017 Enhancements:
        "For non-repository searches (PO lines, funds, and so forth), which do not use the new UI's enhanced recent searches feature, you may now be able to select a previous search string using your browser history. The enhanced recent searches feature is still available for repository searches."
        This is not exactly the same way it works for repository searches (not area specific), but this December 2017 enhancement is a nice step forward.

        We were thinking this, but to exclude User searches for privacy reasons.

        I think this would be very helpful

        Very nice idea! Unfortunately, I'm out of votes :-/ However, I will promote it internally.
