Receive on order
The only way to receive an item on order is to go into the Receive function within Acquisitions and this requires that you have a known POL or browse through the list but that is not a viable option for the amount of orders we have open. The bulk of our materials come on approval so the POL is created in the load process and therefore not noted on the invoice and unknown. In order to receive, staff first search Alma for the correct order record and write down the POL. Then they have to go into Receive and search by POL. It would be far simpler to be able to receive within Alma searching. Maybe there is a better workflow for this that we are not aware of but currently we think this is the only way to receive on order items.

We would also find this feature really useful - it would be a lot simpler to receive directly from the POL record or for there to be at least a link to receive for that POL.
It would also be useful if the POL in the receive record was clickable, to allow navigation back to the main POL interface.
