May release : deletion of empty holdings.
the May release introduced a change concerning the deletion of empty holdings:
The 'Delete Holdings' link in the 'List of Holdings' page, which was formerly visible to users with the 'Physical Inventory Operator' role, is now visible only to users who have the 'Physical Inventory Operator Extended' role.
This change is a problem because not all the operators can have the physical Inventory Operator Extended role: this role allows operators to delete copies and it is quite dangerous.
It would be better for us that operators with the physical inventory role keep the permission to move copies from an holding to another and then delete the empty holding. (let’s think of a correction of call numbers)
We propose the creation of a second Physical Inventory Operators’ role :
One without the possibility of delete empty holdings
and another one with the possibility of delete them.
So that, according to the job that operators have to do, they could keep doing the work deleting empty holdings

Yes, I agree. The change introduced by may has cause workflow for us
Claudia Burattelli commented
I agree, performing shelf maintenance we often move copies from a holding to another and were satisfied with the possibility of deleting empty holding with the simple inventory operator role. The change introduced by May release worsened our workflow
Lynne Billington commented
Yes I agree, it has caused workflow issues for us. I am reluctant to add the extended role for everyone who needs to manage holdings. It is an auditing risk and we are audited on a regular basis.
