Ability to see inventory of matched records in 'Side by Side Matching'
It would be very helpful to be able to see the inventory for matched records in 'Side by Side Matching' when working on records with import issues. Currently, it's necessary for me to have Alma open in a second browser and search for each matched title to see which collection the title belongs to, which then influences my decision on how to deal with the new record. This is shown if there is more than one match, but it would be great if it was shown for single matches as well.

I support this idea, but also think that if it were possible to configure import profiles to limit matching to a specific electronic collection only, then the issue of Match Handling would be made far more straight forward.

This would be extremely useful, strongly support this idea.
Sometimes when Match Handling, we want to take different actions depending on the inventory on the existing record - for example, we would want to merge if there is an existing portfolio for a DIFFERENT collection (in order to create the new portfolio), but if the match is for the SAME collection we wouldn't import at all because it is just a duplicate.
Inventory information does display when there are multi-matches, so it would be wonderful to see this extended to single matches.
