Allow direct linking from database records without impacting other records
Database records in the database list behave as other records in Primo.
You click on a post from the database list/brief display, the record opens itself, and from there you can click on the database link.
While this makes sense for regular records, this is a bit unnecessary with database records:
- not many more details are displayed on the detailed view.
- when looking up a specific database, the only interesting information is the link itself.
Many users reported that this extra click was annoying as what they want is to access the database. Some of them, especially within medicine, use Primo only to find databases which they will use as a search tool, and they are not used to bibliographic records and the way they work in Primo.
Primo is currently not designed to divide the direct linking option between regular and DataBase records, which is what we are requesting now: doing so would allow us to switch on direct linking for database records while regular records remain unchanged.
