Reporting on historical location changes
Analytics should allow users to run reports on historical location changes e.g. identify items that were moved from Branch A to Branch B or different locations in the same branch. This information is visible in the Item history tab; it should be made available for management reports.
we will review this again
I have a salesforce case open 00803127 - Andrea (Ex Libris) agrees this is not possible she has advised -
The "Item went into transit" information which is available on the “Physical Items Historical Events” subject area is for temporarily changed information but not for permanently changed information like a location change.
I would like to report on the permanent location changes within analytics as this information is view able within the history tab of each individual item.
Thank you for this suggestion.
Here is a comment and inquiry. Your response will be greatly appreciated.
It is assumed that if an item moves from one library to another library or from one location to another location in the same library then it is "transited" (meaning it went into transit and was eventually scanned in at the circulation desk of the destination library or location).
The "Item Historical Events" dashboard at "/shared/Alma/Item Historical Events/Dashboards" uses the subject area "Physical Item Historical Events".
Currently there is a folder in this subject area which is called 'Item went into transit".
It includes, among others, the fields "Transit from library" and "Transit to Library".
This can be used to find items which were transited from one library to another library.
Do you want us also to add "Transit from location" and "Transit to location" to this folder?
If you want something different than "Transit from location" and "Transit to location" to this folder then please elaborate and explain.

I will take a look however, was advised by Andrea Hell Ex Libris this was not possible and to raise an ideas exchange.
