How can we improve Primo?

View Primo as someone else / different types of users

View Primo as "someone else". It would be useful to view our Primo-page as different types of users. Being able to view Primo as an internal user, or a student, or staff member, or an external user, would help us troubleshoot configuration and settings in Alma. Have we activated the right functionality for the different user groups? Have we hidden what we want to hide?

tl;dr: Facebook's "View as" functionality in Primo.

        Good point, Ann, as it is a bit cumbersome to muck about with accounts. The ability to masquerade easily would be a nice one for staff to have. I wonder how that could be implemented just for staff though, as I wouldn't think it'd be something you'd want to make available for users. A snazzy concept for admins though, so I've added a vote :)

        I believe I would prefer the solution Cathrine is suggesting. As you point out, Stacey, the practice of changing your own account and in addition delete/add role privileges is a very time-consuming process. It's also easy to loose track of what you actually did with your own account.

        Sorry if I am not understanding this correctly, but can you not set up test accounts for this sort of display and functionality configuration testing?
        Or briefly change your account to the different user group? Obviously that’s predicated on your role privileges in Alma, but I would assume you would have this level given the nature of the question and the work?
