  1. Receiving: continuous vs one-time receiving of items - tabs should retain settings

    In Acquisitions - Receive Items, when either the continuous or one-time tab is selected, the Keep in Department check box should retain its status according to the tab selected, e.g. checked for One-time and unchecked for Continuous.

  2. increase the number of received item per page and make the maximum of item displayed per page controllable

    In the Receive menu, the maximum number of items displayed per page is only 20. Please increase the number to 50, 100 or something. And, please give the option of selecting the number of items to display per page according to user’s preference.

  3. Filter POLs in Receive New Material by Date Sent

    The list of POLs on the Receive New Material page can currently be filtered by vendor and owning library. It would be helpful to also filter the list by Date Sent.

    An operator might have one or more large orders that they wish to receive all at one time, using the Receive All function. Filtering only by vendor and/or library can still include POLs that they do not wish to receive with the others. Filtering by Date Sent could help them narrow the list further and include only the items on the order(s) they wish to receive.

  4. holds

    Add a flag to a title in the receiving queue, if it has a hold associated with it, regardless of the source of the hold. Right now, unless the hold is initiated in Acquisitions, there is no visible marker in the receiving queue, which causes a problem with batch receiving.

  5. Can you put process type as a column in the received items list?

    It would be helpful to add Process Type in the Received Items List so we can see if an issue was claimed, or not published, etc.

  6. Require a barcode for newly received serials

    Serials can be assigned a barcode upon receipt, but it would be nice of Alma would prompt users to provide the barcode if/when a barcode is required rather than merely optional. (We only barcode some titles, so a prompt of some kind would help staff who don't know which titles are barcoded as a matter of routine.)
