  1. Default currency in POL from the vendor

    When we add a vendor in the POL, we would like add by default the first currency associated to the vendor.

  2. Allow Material Supplier, List Price, ISBN and Fund to save when saving orders that have not been sent

    If you are interrupted when creating a PO line, either because you are disturbed or because there are insufficient funds in the budget, Alma saves the information you have already put in. At the moment, it saves the PO line itself but removes the ‘Material supplier’, the ‘List price’ and the ‘Fund’, so that I’m starting off worse than from scratch because two of those three things are already included on my template when I create a PO line anew. If I change the ISBN, this also reverts back when a PO line is saved, and the Reporting Code also…

  3. Include the ISBN/ISSN dropdown box in 'Other Service' PO lines

    We regularly need to order additional copies of ebooks, for example, if credits run out. If we are getting these from the same supplier, we don't want to create a duplicate portfolio, so we want to add an order without creating inventory. Using the order type 'Other Service' would be ideal, however there is no option to include the ISBN in the order, which vendors depend on for identifying the order via EDI. It would be great if this function could be added to 'Other Service' orders.

  4. Add "Expected receipt after ordering (days)" to PO template

    It makes more logical sense to add a relative date ("Expected receipt after ordering (days)" to PO template) rather than a fixed expected date ("expected receipt date") in the context of a PO Line template.

    This change would lessen the likelihood of false claims because the date in the PO Line template is a date in the past.

  5. Auto refresh function for the total price of a PO

    The customer of 86THU would like the total price of a PO could be updated automatically when the POLs were added or removed before clicking the Save button. For example, if you sum up some numbers in Excel, the total will be updated in real-time when you add or remove any numbers.

    Case number: 00681105

  6. Make POL in associated PO Line tab clickable

    In the "Associated PO Lines" tab of a POL record, make the associated POL a link that could be clicked to bring the user to that POL.

  7. Change the way the Receiving Note is updated in the Update PO Lines Information job

    Currently this job fully replaces the information in a receiving note. We would prefer that the job either append or pre-pend the information we would like to add to a receiving note. It is usually not a one for one replacement, but rather a common detail of additional information we need to add. Often, we can't use the job, since we still want any information already in the note to remain there.

  11. POL can support different currency

    Currently, Alma can only support one currency for all POLs in one PO. We would like to Alma can allow POL to use different currency under same PO.

  12. When adding invocie line, Secondary Reporting Code and Tertiary Reporting Code which is empty in POL will be set to a default value from the

    For ‘add invoice line’ operation after typing the POL number the system will bring the POL’s information such as total price, reporting code, Secondary Reporting Code and Tertiary Reporting Code, which is good. But we want the information for Secondary Reporting Code and Tertiary Reporting Code to override the information from configuration > acquisitions > purchase order > Secondary Reporting Code/Tertiary Reporting Code. Even if the POL’s Secondary Reporting Code and Tertiary Reporting Code are empty, which currently will be set to a default value from the configuration.

  13. Allow batch deletion of POLs

    After we set up our Alma Ebook Central integration, thousands of technical PO lines were created for our triggered DDA requests. We already had POLs for these titles, so we want to delete the duplicate POLs. Currently, they have to be deleted manually. Please create a job that allows you to delete POLs in batch.

  14. Identification of Reply vs Response in Communication tab of POL

    It would be useful to be able to easily identify a Reply vs a Response when looking at all of the 'Answers' associated with a Communication in a POL. Perhaps an arrow could indicate which direction the communication occurred ? e.g. an arrow pointing to the left ('out') if it is a Reply from us to the vendor, or an arrow pointing to the right ('in') if it is a Response from the vendor. See attached for screenshots.
