  1. My Account - Previous/Historic Requests

    Our previous resource sharing system allowed clients to view previous/historic Requests however Primo only allows active resource sharing Requests to be tracked and viewed. Can the functionality available for Primo's My Account Loans view please also be applied to Requests so previous/historic requests can also be viewed by clients.

  2. Request physical book when e-book is also available at home or other libraries

    No request or resource sharing option is available when the home library has an e-book. There are many scenarios where a patron may need a physical book and they should have the ability to request one from Primo.

  3. Add Reserves "Reading List" to facets navigation panel.

    This would allow a clean up project for a multiple location library system. It would bring reserves more closely aligned with standard cataloging by basically using the Course as a high level catalog record (think bib level), Reading List as middle tier (holdings level shelving location). By combining the Course to one entry with the reading lists showing shelving, it would take our records from five courses and five reading lists per class offering to one course with five reading list. This would help clean up database space and form more consistency across locations.

  4. Allow combining of facets in the search results

    Please create a way to view multiple physical library locations using the facets on the results page (e.g., see attached - General Collection and General Collection Oversize). Most electronic databases allows the user to hold down the CRTL key and select multiples, but that doesn't work in Primo. The 'Exclude' feature is nice, but it would be fabulous if Ex Libris could add an 'Include' feature. Please?

  6. Create a link for users to report an issue

    There are some institutions that have added functionality where users can report a problem for a specific record. It would be great if this could be offered through Primo. Users would click on an icon to report their issue. In the back office, there would be the option to configure the url for the hyperlinked icon. It would be even better to add logic where you could configure the link in relation to the type of record (CZ, NZ, IZ). This builds on the idea on reporting an issue for CZ records.

  7. Allow Barcode Copying in Primo

    We would like to be able to have the barcode information not get automatically re-hidden so that we can copy barcodes from Primo. This would be particularly helpful for quick reference without having to enter Alma.

  8. Best bets

    Summon has a best bets feature which enables you to have links to Library Opening Hours if that's what someone searches for. Primo doesn't have this, so we are going backwards in customer service when we implement this. Please can you replace Primo with Summon or at least bring Primo up to the same standard?

  9. My Favourites/ My Favorites: Drag and drop labels to saved items

    It would be helpful to users if they could drag and drop existing labels to add them to records they've 'pinned' in My Favourites.

    Once you have a large number of pinned items and labels drag and drop would be quicker and easier than opening the 'edit labels' block for each record.

  10. Enable users to send an enquiry about an existing resource sharing request from My Library Account to a tasklist in Alma

    Currently if users have an enquiry about their resource sharing request they have to contact us separately via email or phone. Since they can see their current requests in My Library Account, it would be great if they could click on an option e.g. 'Send an enquiry about this request' in My Library Account, enter in their query, and Submit. This would then populate a tasklist in Alma (similar to Notes functionality in Leganto/Alma) that resource sharing staff could action and reply to. This would bring this communication workflow into Alma.

  11. Export ISSN, EISSN, DOI and PMID Separately

    Using Export to Excel or CSV, we are able to export Identifier, but ISSN, EISSN, DOI and PMID are grouped together in one field.
    It will be more user-friendly if each Identifier is splitted into separate fields as shown in the attachment.

    Also I'd like to ask you one more favor.
    It would be great if "https://doi.org/" is added to DOI to access easily like https://doi.org/10.1109/5.771073.

  12. Add Generic Record Actions

    In View Configuration > Brief Record Display > Record Actions, implement the function of adding generic icons to the Full Display.

    It should be possible to add:
    - An icon file
    - A label
    - A URL template(if possible using variables)

    This would decrease the amount of programming necessary to add new features and expand on the amount of information that can be added(Eventhough you can already add a lot of features)

  13. My Library Card: add sort by date option to requests list

    it is currently only possible to sort the requests list within My Library Card by status or title - our users would very much appreciate the option to sort by request date as well - thanks for considering!

  14. SFX: Allow users to create local targets with parent-child hierarchy

    In SFX, parent-child hierarchy is quite common in global-type targets as shown in Fig.1 attached below. The advantage of this feature is that it can well display the natural logical relationships between parent-targets and child-targets. However, when creating local targets, parent-child hierarchy is not accessible and all the locally created targets are at the same level, whether they have logical relationships or not. So it's highly suggested that parent-child hierarchy should be an option when users create local targets.

  15. Option to extend Held Shelf Expiry Date

    We would like the option, within My Account for the user to be able extend the Held Shelf expiry date of their requests. They would click on a button and, if no-one had already requested their item the system would automatically extend the Held shelf expiry date (it could do this by an agreed period - for example 2 days and if, required an email could be sent to Library Requests staff to alert them)

  16. See Attachments from Alma in Primo

    Users should be able to see, in a clear format, their attachments that are sent out in Alma. This would be helpful because we could attach policy specific things to their accounts and they'd have a record of what notices were sent out to them.

  17. Dynamically replace spaces with underscores in Primo generated URLs

    Currently, URLs generated while using Primo can result in broken URLs based on the presence of spaces in information such as library names. A good solution would be to program Primo to dynamically replace spaces with underscores, resulting in non-broken URLs when doing things like copy/pasting into an email.

  18. Add 583 data from holding record to Primo GetIt tab

    Currently, Primo can be configured to display additional holdings information in the GetIt tab: 867, 868, 561$a$u$3, 563$a$u$3, 541$a$b$c$d, and 852$t. We would like to also display the 583 $u and $z. 583 is a note about an action taken (in the past or future) on the holdings, and $z is a public note. Examples of 583 notes would be decisions to move to storage, dates of digitization, use in exhibits, decisions to discard or retain, etc. Since $z is a public note, we would like Primo to support displaying the public note.

    Our particular use case is to display…

  19. Add Library pre-filter to Primo VE Advanced Search

    It would be helpful if users could pre-scope their search to a particular library in the advanced search, rather than waiting to filter with the post-search facets.

  20. Embed copyright notice in the resource sharing form to reduce clicks
