  1. Incluir Miniaturas portadas Primo

    Para mejorar la experiencia para los usuarios , se hace necesario que Primo rescate la mayor parte de las miniaturas de las portadas. De acuerdo a los señalado por la linea de soporte de Primo, este usa el primer ISBN y si dicho ISBN no trae en la metadata de Json el enlace del thumbnail_url, no lo coloca.
    Sería beneficioso para el sistema y para los usuarios que se desarrollara este requerimiento

  2. Allow patrons to disable FRBR + disable FRBR in advanced search

    Hi

    Our patrons run into a lot of problems caused by FRBR.

    Please
    – Add a checkmark to allow the patrons to disable FRBR per search, no matter if logged in or not.
    (like "Include articles without fulltext")

    – Make it a parameter in the patron settings

    – Disable FRBR as default in advanced search


    This could also be used as a feeble workaround for the missing exact search https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/18579556-add-a-true-exact-search-to-advanced-search-type

  3. A-Z ejournals list

    Would it be possible to re-instate the alphabetical groupings of eJournals that used to appear in Primo before Primo VE? This would be in addition to the subject groupings that we now have. The Subject groupings are great, but we have some customers who prefer to search through the alphabetical groupings that we used to have. If it could be something that could be incorporated, but have the ability to turn it off for those that don't want it on their Primo VE that would be great. Different people look for things in different ways and I think having both…

  4. Remove restriction on number of Primo facets value from CDI

    CDI facets are artificially restricted to a maximum of 20 facet values, including for content type, collection, language, and topic (subject). For the Journal Title facet, this is even lower at 10 facet values. The only time more facet values will be returned from CDI records is when local records share the same data and are returned in the results set.
    There is clear evidence from our Primo Analytics data that that our users value this feature, with an average of 1,550 to 1,750 facet filtering actions per day over the last few years.
    The result of this restriction is…

  5. Users should be able to choose the length of the result page between 10 and 100 results per page

    Users should be able to choose the length of the result page between 10 and 100 results per page according to predefined steps.
    The option to do so should be available for unsigned users and should be persisted if a user is signed in.

  6. Advanced search: holding call number

    We would like Primo VE to be able to search for all the 852 subfields in holdings (852 $h to $m).
    Currently this is not the case.

  8. Show more than 10 records in My Favorites

    Actually, in My Favorites 10 records are listed by default. Patrons should be able to define the number of records presented once up to 50 records. That would facilitate orientation and navigation within My Favorites.

  9. Navigation within My Favorites should be more user-friendly

    Navigation within My Favorites is tedious: When a favorite is removed or when the list is relabeled, you always go to the top of the list instead of the original starting point.

  10. Primo VE: need for an option to Show All Items from a location

    An option to show All items from a location should be available in Primo VE.
    Currently if you want to display all items from a location, you have to use the 'Show More Items' button several times which can be very excruciating while displaying newspaper's items.

  11. Brief Record Display in Primo VE

    We have just been updating the order of the icons thinks like Citation, Permalink, RefWorks, etc. When you set this up in Alma the order of the itmes is the wrong way round: The first item you want displayed has to be bottom of the icon list, not the top, which is completely counter intuitive. Please can the icons list sort top is first instead?

  12. Facet 'Other libraries' should be customizable like the other facets

    Hi
    We're in a consortium, using Primo VE.

    Our first two search scope slots are
    – IZ
    – NZ plus CDI

    It is possible to show a facet 'Other libraries', which shows the libraries outside our own IZ.

    But 'Other libraries' can't be customized like a normal facet:
    – it can't be displayed only in the search scope slot NZ/CDI without being displayed in the search scope slot IZ
    – it can't be separated from the facet Libraries and for example put last in the list of facets
    – it can't be collapsed if the facet Libraries is not collapsed

    Showing…

  14. Make the table under Discovery > Configure Views > Full Record Services > Record Details drag and drop enabled

    When a user has more than 5 fields in the Edit Full Display Details, it's extremely onerous to have to click the up or down arrows to move data fields (such as title, identifier, series, etc).

    This table should be drag and drop.

  16. Primo VE: Record elements tag field in file splitter of generic XML discovery import profiles to support X-Path

    In discovery import profiles for Primo VE, generic XML profiles do not currently support X-Path within the Record elements tag of the file splitter.

    This means that XML source files which contain a multi-layered structure within records are not accepted by Primo VE on import. The file then has to be manually transformed to remove the extra layer before importing.

    For example, a XML file generated from one of our external systems pulls in data for some fields from additional tables to the bulk of the record, adding an extra layer to the record e.g.

    root element: <table>
    record element:…

  17. Allow request forms to be submitted without first needing to remove focus from fields

    If a user fills in the comment field on a physical request form in Primo and then clicks on the Request button the form refreshes but does not submit. Either a second click on the Request button is required to submit it or the user needs to click away from the comment field to remove the focus from it before clicking on the Request button.

    We think users should be able to fill out the comment field and click on the Request button to submit the form. There should be no need to click the Request button twice or remove…

  18. Add the 300 Marc field as one that is keyword searchable.

  20. Add Due Date/other Variables to Real Time Availability Status in Brief Records

    November 2020 Primo VE release broadened the Availability Status messages in Brief Results. Our library would like to be able to further enhance the Status messages to include Due Dates, where applicable. Example: add date to Not available - Loan message, something along the lines of Not available - Checked out until {date}.
