Add starts with functionality to Call Number field in the advanced search
"starts with" functionality should be added to the Call Number field in the advanced search in Primo.

Using Alma Analytics is also a workaround. But I expect a "starts with" functionality for the readers / patrons not just staff.
For call numbers, the browse index could be a workaround, but it only shows holdings, not items: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/43401771-call-number-index-include-item-call-numbers-not
The "starts with" functionality in the call-number field in the advanced search does not work. And users find the "contains" functionality unhelpful.
Primo VE: 'starts with' in advanced search should also be possible for Author, Series and Subject, which can be browse indexes

This seems like more of a 'bug fix' than an enhancement. At the very least it should not act like this.
'When choosing 'call number' then 'starts with' the interface switches the index to 'title'.
