Improved facets in Alma - Include/Exclude plus the ability to select multiple facets
After searching in Alma, it would be great if we have the ability to further refine searching with facets that allow for the selection of multiple selections, as well as offering the ability to exclude or includes. For example, when searching a POL now, my facets for Status include In Review, Waiting for Renewal, Waiting for Manual Renewal, etc. I would like to either exclude two facets, or include 5 facets, but now I have to select one facet, review, then clear that facet and select the next one.

Thanks!! It may also be useful to include the Facet fiscal year in the “Fund code” search in Alma

I would love to be able to exclude Closed PO Lines when I am looking at a big list but keep all the other statuses available to view.

I'd like to add that this is important for repository searching as well, especially in the Community Zone. There are often several variations of an interface name, and it would be enormously helpful to be able to choose, e.g. all the variations on Taylor & Francis at the same time instead of having to guess and check.

Agreed! Same for the Renewal Date facet in Acq, Renew list. The current menu is unhelpful and needs to allow selection by specific dates. A slider would work. It is especially true around FY end when we are trying to focus on this fy renewals, but the next fy titles are impossible to exclude.

This is one of my biggest frustrations, thanks for suggesting it.
