  1. In Alma analytics, "Physical Items" subject area, add "Process Type Status" field

    We would like to easily report on how many and which items are currently under each process type status (sometimes also called "work order status"). Currently, this field is only available in analytics in the "Physical Items Historical Events" subject area, and it is difficult to extract the current status of an item. See also related NERS Requests #7177, #7242

    See attached file for clarification of the somewhat confusing terminology in this area of Alma

  2. Add Collection related subject area/dimensions/parameters in Analytics

    Please elaborate Collection in Analytics. We suggest three ideas for that;

    Idea 1)
    Collection can be a separate dimension, with the existing/new parameters below;
    - Collection ID (existing)
    - Collection Name (existing)
    - Collection External System
    - Collection External ID
    - Collection MMS ID (of the collection's BIB itself)
    - ★★★ The PIDs of the collection's direct sub-collections (in different rows, not combined with semicolons; should be repeatable so that the created report can show the hierarchical structure of whole collections)
    - Collection level (the depth)
    - Collection Path (from the collection's top level collection to itself)
    - Collection Description…

    We have begun to investigate this more in depth and thank you very much for your three suggestions of how this can be implemented. In order to decide how best to implement this it would be useful to first know what “business needs” you are trying to address. What types of reports are you looking to create? What information do you need to get and what types of reports do you want?. Note that today the bibliographic details folder already has the collection ID and collection name.

  3. Reporting on historical location changes

    Analytics should allow users to run reports on historical location changes e.g. identify items that were moved from Branch A to Branch B or different locations in the same branch. This information is visible in the Item history tab; it should be made available for management reports.
