  1. Borrowing receival - adjusting hold shelf letter

    Automatic update of letters sent after receipt of an ILL (Borrowing Requests > Receive), the FulPlaceOnHoldShelfLetter for all kinds of requests, when using (one of) the following two fields:
    - Entered request cost
    - Reading room only

    If these fields are filled in/checked, it would be ideal if the letter contains an extra sentence about costs and/or consultation options (no loan, reading room only). Now we have to send a separate mail about this.

  2. Provide User Preferred Name option to Resource Sharing Partners

    Currently Alma supports User Preferred Names within Alma. We would like to extend this information to our Resource Sharing partners so that any communication on the partner's end to our patrons refers to our patrons preferred name if so defined just like it is handled in Alma.

    It would be preferable that on a partner by partner configuration that we could select what user's names are used in NCIP communication.

    Option 1. Name (this is how Alma is currently setup now).

    Option 2. Preferred Name (this would use the preferred name instead of the name in the NCIP response when…

  3. allow auto-renewals for NCIP resource sharing borrowing requests

    According to the documentation, "Automatic renewal is possible only for ISO partners" you can check this in the following link:

    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/010Alma_Online_Help_(English)/030Fulfillment/080Configuring_Fulfillment/060Resource_Sharing/010Basic_Resource_Sharing_Configurations#Configuring_Workflow_Profiles

    Auto-Renewal should be allowed for other resource sharing partner types.

  5. Limit RS Digital requests to a certain number per day

    It should be possible to limit scan requests to a certain number day.
    Currently, it is only possible to limit to a certain number of active requests (which is confusing for the patrons).

  6. Borrowing requests: comment (from Primo) should not be transferred to request note field but to the Note field

    The content of the comment (from Primo) was transferred to the "Request Note" field (=Request Attributes).
    We didn't want that to happen.
    The content should go into the "Note" field (=Resource Information).

  7. When printing a shipping slip, you should always have the option of selecting "quick print" in case the receipt printer isn't functional.

    "Quick print" allows you to print the slip from a regular printer, but this option isn't always available. I've been typing the information the borrowing library will need in a Word document and sending that along with the book. It's impossible to generate a barcode this way, of course.

  10. Lending requests - requests shipped as physical non-returnable should automatically get status Request Completed

    Now when there is an lending request in Alma and we choose the option "Ship non-returnable" then such request gets a status "Shipped physically". We suggest that such request should automatically get status "Request Completed" because it was shipped and such request is completed according to our workflow.
