Available Online link should be configurable to link directly to full text from full item record page, not just brief results list
We would like it so the green Available Online link on the item record could be made to link directly to the full text, since we have the green available online link to go directly to full text on the results list (direct linking turned on).
Thank you for posting this idea and bring this to our attention, we are reviewing the option to apply the direct linking behavior in the full record as well for Primo VE customers.

‘Full Text Available’ in full record should take users directly to the resource.
The full record version should have a different HTML class/ID to the brief results version. This will allow us to customise the CSS for the different versions (e.g. colour).

I agree with Stacey's comment that activating direct link needs to add a link out icon so that users know what to expect from clicking there versus anywhere else on the brief results page and not unnecessarily redirect to the database listings on the full results page.

Noting that this is only an issue for Primo VE, whereas direct linking functions as expected for Primo Back Office sites to action an out link to a new browser tab from both Brief Results and the Full Record.
It is also an issue (IMHO) for VE that activating direct linking does not add an out link symbol to the availability status in the UI, so that users can know the expected outcome of an action ie when clicking on a link with an out link symbol, a new browser tab will be opened and, when clicking on an availability status without an out link symbol, the full record overlay will display at the Get It or View It section.
