Include call number for physical items in Excel / CSV Export
Thank you for adding the option to export results in Primo to Excel and CSV.
Please could the call number for physical items be added as an extra column in the export. When clients export results from Primo, their intention is also to look for those items that are physical on the shelves and without the call number, they again have to access each record's link to obtain the call number.

We are looking to have the call # and physical location added to the Excel export for VE as well. I don't believe the suggestion for adding the AVA field for display applies to VE?

Our researchers are looking for the ability to include call number in the Excel file export, so that they have quick reference to location within the libraries. We would support it being added, based on this user need.
Thank you very much, Stacey https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/users/195318681-stacey-van-groll for your input. Will investigate adding the AVA field for display in order for it to be included in the Excel export.

Hi Natasja, you should be able to do this by adding the AVA field for display. We have a local practice of using LC in the bib record and then adding a Local running call number at the holdings level when we shift items to our off-site Warehouse. So, a little different use than yours in open stacks. I've already had a Local Call Number field for display, but just from the 090 in the bib for resources without LC. To date I've only grabbed both the AVA and the 090 for search data, just in case it's the only information a user wrote down from a record, but am now adding the AVA also for display as well, so that it is included in the Excel Export.
