Enable search and browse also for item call numbers, not only holdings
We switched to Primo VE some months ago and are really missing a call number index that shows all our call numbers, in items as well as in holdings.
"Item Call Number – is it in Primo VE search indexes?
• The item call number cannot be added as a Primo VE search index.
• Of the three call numbers only the “Holding Call Number” can be added as a Primo VE search index."
Our call number index is set to "callnumber.4 – Shelving control number call number", our item call numbers are type 4, but they are missing in the call number index.
No hit in call number index search for
UBH Bc I 50
UBH Bc I 51
UBH Bc I 52
Can not be found in the call number index under UBH AL VII 42:1993
We know that it can be done in Alma (see screenshot), but we need the function also in Primo.
In addition to the index search, please also index the item call numbers for simple and advanced search.

While you're at it, please also make the public note field in the item searchable https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/43984086-index-item-level-information
and the library https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/39421237-add-library-location-to-advanced-search-options
We migrated from Aleph. This is a step backwards.
