  1. Search Slot/Scope/Profile Usage in Primo Analytics

    We would like to be able to report the total number of searches that have been performed in each search/slot/scope/profile that we have configured in Primo. Currently the only report in Analytics that has Search Scope search information is the Zero Results Report.

    This information will provide invaluable information about our user behaviour and will help us in the customization of the Primo interface to meet the needs of our clients by assisting in decisions regarding adding or removing search profiles/scopes.

    • 'pin' \ save to eshelf all items of a specific search

      Add the ability to 'pin' all results of a specific search, without having to manually select them.

      The classic UI has the option to save all items in a specific page to eshelf, this is missing from the NUI and it also doesn't offer a full solution. Users asked for the ability to add all results of a certain search to their eshelf with one click.

      • Add Jump to Last & Specific Page Options to Primo Search Results Paging Bar

        Our users are asking for the option to jump to the last page of the search results in Primo. They would also like to get to a specific page number in the Primo search results paging bar by typing the number in there. First and last page options are basic functionalities of pagers and users expect those.

        • Add a field ISSN and E-ISSN that are separated but can be matched for Dedup / F

          For more efficient DEDUP of ejournal and print journal.
          The dedup test mach ISSN, but the ISSN of printed journal record is usually different from the e-ISSN of the electronic journal record, thus there is no match between two these numbers.

          • Add next and previous arrows to detail display

            Instead of forcing the user to close the detail display to then click on the details of another record, the idea would be to add next and previous arrows or buttons to the detail display to allow the user to see the next or previous records details.

            • course reserve

              Course Reserves:
              Requested Enhancement: Offer interface with drop-down menus for Course Title, Course Department, and Course Instructor (similar to drop-down menus in Voyager)

              Currently users can search for course reserves, but there is not a good mechanism to browse. Offering drop-down menus would easily allow users to see what was currently on course reserve by course title, department and instructor.

              Thank you for considering

              • “My Favorites” pin should indicate number of records in favorites

                In the Primo New UI, there is the “my favorites” pin icon at the top right of the screen (screenshot below of the pin). We ran some usability surveys and found that users would like an indication, via the icon, that something is there. Like the number if pinned items and/or a different color indicating that something is there.

                  • Put useful data into the RSS feeds created by Primo

                    Technically RSS feeds created by Primo are working. But from a content perspective the feed is a mess.

                    Let's start with the feed header:

                    Primo delivers <rss version="2.0">
                    The standard specification are at http://www.rssboard.org/rss-specification . It was published in August 2002. The RSS 2.0 specification is copyrighted by Harvard University and is frozen. Please use RFC 4287 also known as Atom.
                    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4287
                    It is simply the better option for may reasons.
                    http://www.intertwingly.net/wiki/pie/Rss20AndAtom10Compared

                    The description of the feed is <title>Records from Primo</title> .
                    As a user I would like to see my search terms in the feed title - like in…

                      • Add PMID search funcitionality

                        We're switching from Summon to Primo. There was PMID search functionality integrated with the Summon search (i.e. you did not have to default to a Citation Linker search to conduct a PMID article lookup). It would be extremely useful at our institution to include PMID lookup from the default Primo search scope rather than to try to educate our users to use Citation Linker when doing a searching using PMIDs. As mentioned, our users have already become accustomed to searching PMIDs in Summon, so it was a bit of a surprise that this functionality wasn't included in the default Primo…

                                It would be very useful if upon clicking on the unpin icon in the favorites screen, Primo will display a warning message stating that the user is about to delete the marked record/s.
                                Currently, clicking willingly or inadvertently on the unpin icon will immediately and irreversibly delete the record/s.

                                  We have had requests to include the Advanced Search on the Browse and A-Z pages. If one wants to run an Advanced Search one has to return to a new (basic search) search and then click Advanced Search. I had submitted a SF case but the response was that this is not a functionality available in Primo. We believe this would improve usability.

                                  • Change the "Guest" button to a "Sign In" button.

                                    The new Primo interface has a "Guest" label/button which you have to click to get to a "Sign In" button. This is ridiculous. This confuses a "who you are" label with a login button. There is nothing intuitive about this. Users have to click twice to login.

                                    • Primo - Pay Fines Link - don't show when there are no fines

                                      The Pay Fines in Library Card/Account section of Primo displays even when a user has no fines.

                                      Clicking the link takes the user through to our payment provider allowing them to attempt to pay a fine/fee of zero.

                                      It would be a notable improvement to the user experience if this link only displayed when there was actually a fine/fee to be paid.
