  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. Add Codabar barcode symbology support to the Alma Mobile app

    Our library is in the process of migrating to Alma and we have hundreds of thousands of items with Codabar barcodes on them. We would like to use the Alma Mobile app to reduce paper and increase efficiency, but the Alma iOS app does not currently scan the Codabar symbology.

    We are considering options such as purchasing Bluetooth scanners, but as there are other apps in the Apple App store which do scan codabar barcodes, it seems like this feature could be added to the Alma Mobile app. And this would be very helpful.

    Thank you for this idea!

    We are currently working on a new version of the Alma Mobile app and will be adding iOS support for Codabar barcodes within the next year.

  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. 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.

  9. Add Analytics Functionality to Alma Mobile App

    In order to check items on shelf against report-lists from analytics we would be thrilled, if we could create and check Analytics reports directly within the Alma Mobile App.

  11. Add Item Fulfillment Note pop-up window to Mobile App

    When scanning in barcodes using the Mobile App, there is currently no functionality to provide a pop-up note when an Item Fulfillment Note exists. We use this note to indicate any additional loose materials that belong with the item.
