  1. Add Loan Information to Fulfillment Set Export

    When Create Fulfillment Set is used to create a set of items that are Overdue, Lost, Claimed Returned etc it would be very useful for the loan and borrower's information to be included in the exported spreadsheet.

    Currently only the Process Type and Due Date are included. Including the Loan date, Patron's name, Primary ID, and Preferred email address would allow staff flexibility in contacting patrons by mail merge or manually.

  2. Change Opening Hours calendar 'Apply Changes' from link to button

    Currently the 'Apply Changes' link on the Open Hours configuration page is easy to miss. Since it is so crucial to click this when editing timings (such as End of Term), it should be more prominent. I would suggest making it a big button right next to Save, that will be greyed out if there are no changes to apply.

  3. Customization of the search categories

    The customization of the search categories to be displayed in the Advanced or Simple Search is solved very very awkwardly. 3 clicks for each category is just too complicated.
    My suggestions:
    - Make activation switch directly operable
    - Make list sortable by activated terms
    make
    - Checkboxes for the terms in both columns for advanced and simple search
    - Improve the explanation in the KB, because
    translating "dc:Title" with "Dc Title" has no added value. An explanation that dc:title B is e.g. DUBLIN CORE title would be super, so that one knows what one activates there.

    Please improve at least…

  4. Display purchase request approval/rejection reason in purchase request alerts in citations

    We think it would be helpful for the purchase request approval/rejection alerts for citations in Alma to include the approval/rejection reason. This would appear in the Type field of the alert in addition to the "Citation Purchase Request Approved/Rejected" text (like how the rule used to approve/reject copyright for a citation appears after "Approved" or "Rejected" in the Copyright Status field).

  5. Add vendor information to Order Now Letter

    Currently in the Order Now Letter the vendor information is not output in the XML, which is automatically generated when submitting an order.

    With adding this feature, the ordering person could then also receive the information by e-mail from which vendor the resource was ordered.

  6. Make "Always show current location" the default

    Please either make "Always show current location" checkbox ticked by default or allow a system configuration to toggle whether it is force displayed. It is always more useful to see the location than not.

  7. Save Facet Settings

    There are facet settings/searches we tend to run more than others. It would be really excellent and save a lot of duplicated work if it was possible to save certain facet configurations or bookmark the search so we could quickly access it again later. Would be even better if those searches could be shared among our staff, like how public sets are.

    An example would be having a saved Request/Process type facet filter so we could quickly see what items were needing to be shipped physically, but there are any number of facet searches that it would be fantastic to…

  8. Show Job category in the Manage Patron Services screen

    In our library patron accounts for Alma are imported from an external patron registration system, including Job categories. Nice. But in Alma the Job category is not shown in the Manage Patron Services screen. We would like to have it show.
