Default 'Has Activity' instead of 'All Institutions' in My Library Card
The new ability to toggle between "All Institutions" and "Has Activity" in the My Library Card feature is helpful. It would be more helpful if the default were "Has Activity" instead of "All Institutions" (or if libraries could configure which of the two options they would like to be the default in their PrimoVE instance). Patrons need to know information about where their current loans originate from, and are not usually looking for a list of all the libraries they've ever borrowed from. Most do not even notice the ability to toggle between the two options, so the default should be the option that most patrons are looking to make use of.

This would be particularly helpful if the other option, to list all the active loans from every institution in one list, is not implemented yet.

"Has Activity" should clearly be the default.
Alice Creason commented
This is important in a consortial environment like ours where patrons have a list of a dozen or more institutions on their account. We often have to explain to patrons how to find their current loans because they get confused.
Debbie Campbell commented
Yes, I agree that it would be very helpful for patrons if the default selection was the "Has Activity" filter.
