configure the order of the holdings records in the GetIt tab
It would be very useful to have an option to configure the order of the holdings records to be displayed in Primo (e.g. according to the loan period) as opposed to the current situation where the order is random.

Thank you for your comment, however these configurations do not pertain to our need.
We have one central library with various locations with distinct loan periods. We would like to be able (as stated in the Ideas suggestion) to configure the order of the holdings (not the items) according to loan period (and if possible to have a second sort order according to availability, but this seems presumptuous :)).
I did see your suggestion and our Ideas do seem to overlap. It would be great to have the flexibility for each library to configure this based on the specific library needs (A-Z, loan period, etc').
Perhaps it would be possible to consolidate these Ideas, thus increasing our chances. If this is acceptable, I will ask Exlibris and update you. Please don’t hesitate to mail me in person: email@example.com

The sorting of items in a holding is adjustable (see below). Instead, holdings are sorted by "their proximity to the patron, according to the library IP address." . We want a sort by library location (A-Z), and I filed an separate enhancement for this: http://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/17908981-sort-of-holdings-by-location-a-z-in-primo-getit
For configuring the order of the holdings' records, as you request here see ALMA:
