How can we improve Alma?

Keep suppressed records without items that have received more than one purchase request

We have detected this case that we consider is an incorrect behavior of Alma.

When a purchase request is generated, a non-visible bibliographic record is created. The problem is that if a second purchase request for the same document is generated, Alma automatically makes the bibliographic record visible, even though we still do not have copies of it. Therefore this record appears visible in Polibuscador but without funds.

We request that the bibliographic record should only be visible when the issue or copies are available to the user, meanwhile, even if more than one purchase request has been made, it should remain suppressed.

        Hi Ana,

        I noticed not quite the same but a similar problem. When a new PO line is added to an electronic item it automatically creates an extra portfolio. I am voting for this suggestion because purchase order line should be indifferent to pre-arranged setting to an item. It shouldn't incur anything but just add a PO line. That's all.
