  1. Expired Hold Shelf to Alma mobile

    It would be practical to get the Expired Hold Shelf lists to Alma mobile so we didn't have to print them on paper.

  2. Add check-out function to Alma mobile

    I think it would be useful to add the check-out function to Alma mobile. Sometimes the circulation desk is busy so it would be helpful if library staff could check-out books for users from a mobile device.

  3. Include storage location ID field in pick from shelf API's for display in Alma Mobile

    See this email thread from Alma-L:

    Hi Caroline,

    We would need to enhance the data returned in the pick from shelf APIs to include the storage location ID field in order for it to appear in the display in Alma Mobile.

    Would you put this on the Idea Exchange (http://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com) and let others comment on your idea? We would like to find out if other customers would also like to see this field in the Pick From Shelf display.

    Best regards,

    Mike Dicus
    Alma Product Manager

  4. Additional inventory functionality for Alma App

    At Northwestern we need to do regular checks of library carrels to make sure that books are checked out to each carrel. Since moving to Alma our process for doing these checks has become more labor intensive as we must perform several steps to check (1) if the item is on loan and (2) who it is on loan to.

    It would be helpful of there were an option to scan in an item and immediately view current process type and if on loan, the patron name. Unlike Scan in Items, this action would not result in an action on…

  7. Add Fields to Scan In on Alma Mobile

    We'd like to use the Alma Mobile application to do some small inventories in the stacks, but we need the call number and description fields in order to do that.

  10. Scanning books with Alma Mobile to do Shelf Report

    The idea is to allow staffs to scan the barcodes of a batch of books on the shelf to automatically create a list that will upload to Alma Shelf Report, so we can check misplaced books, missing books, and books that have not been added to Alma, etc. This eliminates the need to create an excel list of barcodes, a desktop laptop, and a handheld scanner. Shelf reading will become faster, more streamlined, and more accurate.

  11. smartphone

    In those rare instances when ALMA (or an IT system in general) goes down, is it possible to have a smartphone app (with cut down features) that would allow the issue and return of books using the camera to read a barcode. The data could be held locally (on the phone) until the system returns and the new issues/returns uploaded to the full system?

  12. Display note/comment field and requestor information in Alma Mobile

    It would be very helpful to have the note/comment field from requests display in Alma Mobile, particularly useful if the note/comment directly effects how, why, when, etc. the item is pulled.
    It would also be helpful to have the requestor information (ie their name) display in Alma Mobile, especially if multiple patron requests are being fulfilled at one time and/or they are pre-pulled items that just need to be filed on a hold shelf.
