How can we improve Alma?

Change order of availability in "Get it" tab

We would like the order of availability in the "Get it" tab to be different. Instead of "x copies, x available, x requests" we would prefer "x available, x requests, x copies". The users frequently misunderstand and think that "copies" are available on shelf.

Hi,

We will introduce a new label with placeholders, such as “($1 copy, $2 available, $3 requests)”. This will enable institutions to configure a different text, for example “x available, x requests, x copies”.

The parameter will be populated by default, but will be empty for existing customers. When configured, it will take precedence over the existing labels.

Thanks,
Moshe

    It would be a great improvement for our users, less confusion!

    This would be a great improvement regarding the information display for our users, they seem to only look at the first number, when it's the availability they are actually looking for!! Yes please:)
