Configure fields included in Course Information
We would like to be able to modify the default configuration of Course Information field displayed in the details view of the full record in Primo VE, adding to or deleting the default elements (Course ID, Department Name, Course Instructor Name) or changing their order. For example, an institution may want to include only Course ID and Instructor Name but not Department Name here. This is not currently possible.

Yes. This would be helpful

It's great to be able to add course information but for many reasons we need to have the ability to tailor the fields that are shown to enhance the user experience. This really is key and without the ability to tailor what is shown we will have to make the choice not to present any additional information, which is a loss, rather than an enhancement.

Agree that this should not really be an enhancement request it should be possible out of the box. The documentation is misleading as it suggests that this data is handled separately - there are separate switches for each. We have just spent a long time switching off different ones to try and remove instructor information from the display only to find out that it's not possible to do that

Very much interested in this to happen. As Salihin mentioned, I agree that this should not even have to be an idea or enhancement - should be possible out of the box as all those fields are separately stored in Alma. I am baffled why they are pulled together as one field in Primo VE without having the possibility to split them. I have recently raised a case (#00835289) but was dismissed by saying it is not possible and got directed to this ideas exchange. Hope that Primo VE product management takes notice.
Our library would also like this enhancement.

This should not even have to be an idea or enhancement in the first place. Individual course information i.e. Course Code, Course Name and Course Instructor should be able to be displayed according to institutional needs
