Specify time period for SUSHI harvests
When you manually request a particular SUSHI account/report to be harvested by Alma, by default Alma requests any data which it hasn't already loaded for that account from the last 12 months. If there are multiple months in sequence missing, Alma requests the data for these months together as a single SUSHI request.
This is an inflexible system.
Instead, at the point where a user requests a harvest, Alma should ask the user to specify the time period they would like to request.
This would have several advantages:
- We would be able to use SUSHI to harvest usage data from greater than 12 months ago.
- When troubleshooting data errors, we could ask Alma to harvest just a single month at a time.
- We could avoid duplicating usage data which has been loaded into Alma manually.
- We could avoid harvesting the most recent month's data if the vendor hasn't yet made it available.
