Add 'search' feature in e-shelf
Users should be able to search for references in their eShelf lists based of any <search> field contents in the PNX and wherever the references may be (not sensitive to folders).
In NUI, it's really hard for users with many pinned items to find anything in the e-shelf.
If items in e-shelf could also be exported to Excel (like search results as suggested here: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/34593799-export-search-results-to-excel-or-delimited-file) this would absorb the missing search functionality.

This is a major user with the loss of the heavily-used folder and annotation features (pseudo-reference management for higher education users is expected for large numbers of items).
Design consistency in Ex Libris products would be welcomed here - you can search my collection in Leganto for example.

This is now a significant issue in the new UI: users with longer lists (favorites, loans) can't find items.
When a user has more than 10 items in a list (favorites, loans, historic loans, requests), and they want to find a particular item using Control+F, they will get zero hits if their item is not in the first 10 items in the list, because the system only loads the first 10. They have no way to find the item unless they load the entire list. The only way to load the entire list is to scroll to the end of the page (i.e. the first ten), then scroll again to the end (the next 10), etc. until they have gone through the entire list, 10 at a time. For users with longer lists, the system performance slows down somewhere over 100 items, so it takes longer and longer to reach the end of the list.
Use case: A user has 200 saved favorites. They remember they saved an item in the past with the word "dogs" in the title but they don't remember anything else about it. They go to their Favorites and use Control+F to search "dogs" and get zero hits and think the system is not working, or their memory is failing, when in fact the title is in their list but is number #197. If they happen to know about the system behavior of loading only 10 at a time (highly unlikely), they have to scroll down in 20 batches to have their entire list load, and then they can use Control+F to find the title.
Requirement: there needs to be a way for a user to find items in a list, or to easily see/obtain the entire list. One possible solution would be a feature that allows you to export your entire list to Excel.
