  1. Add "Back to results list" when a document has several editions

    We would like to propose an improvement to the search results for end-users in Primo. Our suggestion is to have an easier way to get back to the search results list if a document has several editions.
    Currently, if a user opens a document that has several editions/versions, they have to reset their active search filters (“List of editions/versions”) in order to go back their original search results list. Our suggestion is to have a button that says “Back to results list” instead.

    In addition, we propose that when returning to the results list, the user returns to the same…

  2. Export search results to Excel (or delimited file)

    When a user gets several hundred search results, they would like to be able to download a list of the entire search results. This is a feature that faculty routinely use. They may then have a faculty assistant check out some of the books.

    There is no way in Primo to capture an entire set of search results and do anything with it, such as export.

    The ability to export a set of search results was a feature in the Aleph OPAC. There is no feature parity in Primo. Users have already noted the lack of this feature.

  3. warning message when unpinning a record from the favorites page

    It would be very useful if upon clicking on the unpin icon in the favorites screen, Primo will display a warning message stating that the user is about to delete the marked record/s.
    Currently, clicking willingly or inadvertently on the unpin icon will immediately and irreversibly delete the record/s.

  4. Secondary sorting of records in the results list

    Primo is designed to sort the results list by one parameter only (relevancy, title etc.).
    Currently, it is not possible to define a secondary sort. Thus records with the same ranking will appear in no particular order.
    It would be beneficial to be able to configure a secondary and third sort options. For example, first sorting by Relevancy, secondary by Publishing Year and third by Title.

  5. Allow users to personalize default scope for them

    Option to allow a Primo user to select which scope they prefer to work with when multiple scopes. Two possibilities - allow this to be set for as a saved option for signed-in users only, or allow this to be set as a cookie for guest users and be saved as a cookie on that computer. This could apppear as a "Personalize" selection.

    This will truly empower users - e.g. if they don't want to see Primo Central results most of the time, they will not be hampered by the library's choice of "All" as a default scope. Or if…
