  1. Fix Enum and Chron concatenation function in item editor and description templates

    When editing/adding and item and entering Enumeration and Chronology information for serials, there is a function to "generate" (concatenate) a description of the issue. For some reason, it ignores the "Chronology J" field in this operation, and it should include it.

  2. Ways to track the history of changes in Physical Locations configuration

    We need a way to know if there is any change made in Physical Locations. It could be an email, or adding columns like Last Updated Date.

  3. When Managing In Process Items ability to sort list of items into shelf order

    When managing in process items in a work order department we may want to take a device with this list to a shelf of items in call number order e.g. damaged items shelved in call number order or theses ready to be shipped for digitisation. Call number is available as a field, but it's not possible to sort by it (ideally we'd want to sort by normalised call number.

  6. Add Material Type column to Item List

    It would be great if we could see the item Material Type when we are in the Items List.

    Can we add an item Material Type column? If people don't want to see it they can eliminate from view.

    This is especially helpful when there are multiple item material types with the same call number, location, and no Description. If we had a Material Type column we could tell right away which item was which material type.

    Here is what it looks like now in our Alma. This title has two fiches and one CD-ROM. I can't tell which is…

  7. Add the ability to display the MMSID number in the results list from a physical item search

    Add the ability to display the MMSID number in the results list from a physical item search. Having to open the bib or export the results to get the MMSID is inefficient.

  9. Alternative way to withdraw items from ALMA

    It would be useful to have a withdraw items button displayed when a library needs to withdraw items from its collection. When viewing items from the search results page, instead of clicking Actions and choosing withdraw item from the drop down menu - can we have a button next to the existing move items button for a quick withdrawal of items.
    Regards,
    Heather.

  10. 96214i

    I would like to suggest that when the cataloger has to create an item and adds barcode, that certain details like Copy ID and Inventory Date are automatically input and saved. Currently when the barcode is inserted, it saves automatically and leaves the page immediately. This delays our work, as we have to go back to edit the item again and insert all other details.

  11. Make item record note field labels configurable

    Currently the labels on the fields in the physical item notes tab are not configurable. We would like to be able to change the labels for these note fields.

  12. Creation Date should be displayed in the Item Record

    Please add the item record's Creation Date to the fields displayed in the item record. An appropriate location would be the History tab. It is currently possible to find the creation date only through Alma Analytics. While the Receipt Date can be a clue to the item's date of creation, the dates are not necessarily the same. Furthermore, the Receipt Date is populated automatically only when receiving an item through Acquisitions, and inputting the date manually when creating an item in the Metadata Editor is an extra step which can be overlooked and may not be applicable (or justified by…
