  1. allow all fines (closed and open) to show in patron's library account online

    Patrons can only see active fines in their library account, but they need to be able to see all closed and paid fines as well so they can review what has been charged to them and what they have already paid. This is key especially when fines are exported to the bursar office since those are marked as 'closed' and students can no longer review them!

  3. Add "(full text resources only)" and "(full text and non-full text resources)" suffixes to list of results in Primo Central

    We think it would be helpful if the wording directly above the list of Primo Central search results could be changed. For example, for a search for "fish" it would be great if it could say something like:

    Results 1 - 10 of 897,789 for Primo Central (full-text resources only)

    when the checkbox is unticked and:

    Results 1 - 10 of 1,194,353 for Primo Central (full-text and non full-text resources)

    when it is ticked.

    This would prove a useful insurance in particular for users of mobiles/devices. Indeed, embracing of Responsive Web Design at an increasing number of institutions is likely…

  5. "XML View" in "Send to" section of record display

    Librarians often need to look "under the hood" of what is being displayed in the OPAC. It would be great if "Send to" section of the record display included a link for displaying the PNX record.

  6. Ability to save phone number in "my account"

    I would love it if I could save my phone number in my account so I don't have to type it in every time to send a record to my phone.

  7. Backoffice REST API and Hooks

    Alma provides a growing number of API's for process orchestration and Hooks will come soon.

    Primo only provides REST API's which are mainly used for Frontend interaction.

    Primo is missing API's and Hooks to control Tools, Pipes, Processes and Schedules to implement fully automated workflows for Alma or other ILS.

    I would be great to see such API's and Hooks soon, please vote!

  8. Export search results in ISBD format

    It seems that Primo does not permit (as, I.E., Aleph) the export of a search in ISBD format: doing this would be a great thing at least for our patrons

  9. Allow upload of SVG image files via File Uploader

    We have had some design work done for us and were supplied with a number of SVG format image files. The current Primo File Uploader does not support SVG format image files, but it should.

  10. Create Primo UI design competition.

    Hi All,

    most of the ***** sites look quite dull, mostly OOTB look with few enhancements. How about running a competition "The best Primo UI design"?

  11. System generated email: include the domain name in the body of message

    Currently system generated emails from Primo do not indicate which server they originated from. We have two servers, production and staging, and we think this is a common setup. In order to know which server the email came from one has to view the message headers. It would be helpful if the emails automatically included the domain name in the body of the message.

  12. e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting

    e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting. There is no indication available and when copying large amounts of items it is unclear as to whether they have been added to the clipboard or not so the user cannot tell when it is time to paste.

  13. Relais third-node adapter

    There should be a way to search consortium library ILSes using Metalib or a z39.50 third-node adapter. We are currently building a metalib quickset to federate search across the consortium. We hate relais' discovery service so we would like to keep users in primo. Currently, the relais link in the new UI is for known items. We would like to create a consortium based union catalog. Even better would be if this could get accomplished by daily automated harvesting within PCI (leaving d2d's web API to check availability and process the loan). If you think this would require additional resources,…

  14. Truncation within parenthesis

    We would like Primo to work with searching with truncation even within parenthesis, like this:

    "soccer injur*"

    would return for example:

    soccer injury
    soccer injuries

  15. add a check box feature in the "Refine my Results" lists on the left column in each facet

    The value of the faceted search is that it leads the searcher quickly and efficiently to the desired result. The checkbox facet type lets users select multiple values.
    We would like to add a check box feature in the "Refine my Results" lists on the left column in each facet, as is already being done in the "More options" links therein. The reason for this request is that in our opinion, the user will notice from the beginning this option exists in the facet, and it will facilitate his search. Some users don't click "More options", and thus they will…

  16. Modify message and add hyperlink in "Request" tab in search result

    "Title Request Limit" is not be used in our library but misleading message "Patron has exceeded requests limit" is shown in result list "Request" tab of Primo after user logged in. As a result, we would like to modify the message and hyperlink that will be more user friendly. Hyperlink is not supported to add. We would like to change the message to 'Click "Holdings" to check "Request Options"' as well as "Holdings" is a hyperlink. Tab will be switch to "Holdings" tab after user click the link.

  18. Persistent "Number of results to display" setting

    As a user, I would like the "Number of results to display" setting in the "My Account" area to be persistent for my user account.

    Currently, this setting is dependent on a browser cookie and/or system cache. As a security measure, many users clear caches and cookies when they close their browser. This results in the setting reverting to a default value when they next log in to Primo.

    Having this setting directly associated with a user's Primo account would provide a more consistent user experience.

  19. Add link "Back to results list" on the e-Shelf

    This is the use-case I want to improve:
    A user is constructing complex queries and collecting some records.
    From time to time she wants to check the e-Shelf and then continue skimming trough the results list.

    ¡There is no simple navigation path from the e-Shelf back to the results list!

    There are 2 less-than-ideal solutions:

    1/ repeating the query from tab "This session's queries" (flaws: it is cumbersome to find the corresponding query and too much clicks are necessary)
    2/ the back button of the browser (flaws: the yellow e-Shelf star icons are not up to date and too much…

  20. Display "Sign in to check request options" message/link on a higher level

    Display the "Sign in to check request options" message/link on a higher level than for each location? That would make it much more visible for customers, instead of having to click on individual locations drop down links.
