The default receiving status in manage items of receiving workbench is all and it should be not received or should be configurable
As part of the new prediction pattern development it is possible in the receiving workbench to receive new items and filter the 'manage items' section by "all" "received" or "not received".
Currently it defaults to "all" which is not what would be desired because
A. it would show too much
B. they would need to manually search for what they want to receive.
It should default to "not received" because then they can choose the issue they have in hand and receive it. Another option would be to have it always remember the previous filter of the user and use that. But if that is the case it would need to be the previous choice of the user even in a previous session. It should not just remember the current session.

It would have been very useful to have been able to set defaults certainly for the Received status options. My preoccupation is with issues not received rather than those that have been received (received = job done, closure). And so to be able to have a default for items 'Not Received' would have been very, very useful. To be able to set such defaults rids the screen of what is not immediate necessary (ie clutter) and makes for a much better user-friendly experience - particularly with the visual functions and aesthetics.
This function is very much needed.

It would be great if these options were sticky, so that once a user selects the sort routine and received status Alma would remember them for each user for every session. This would be similar to how the column layout configuration is now remembered by Alma. Having to re-sort the list each and every time is aggravating and not ergonomic.

i think that this is a good idea
