  1. Add library location to advanced search options

    There is currently no way to do a search by location in Primo VE, where a user can choose to search a specific location by selecting one from a pre-populated drop-down menu. Please add this to the Advanced Search options.

  3. Highlight one result from each Resource Recommender type in brief results

    We can create multiple types of Resource Recommenders, but if multiple items within a particular type match the tags a user searches for, multiple items are returned from a single Recommender and some Recommenders are hidden. We would like to be able to highlight one result from each matching Recommender.
    For example, display in Primo seems to support highlighting 3 items from Resource Recommenders in brief results, with additional items displayed under link to "See all [#] suggested resources." We currently have three Recommender types: Library Guides, Databases, and a Custom recommender for Librarians (enhanced version of Person recommender). No…

  4. Subject words also in brief display

    We would like to have the option to show subject words in the brief display mode. This would help users determine if hits are relevant faster.

  5. User management - Admin User can make a default "Patron has institutional record" as "Yes" or "No"

    There is no possibility for an Admin User to set up the external or internal user account to be a default value (in "Patron has institutional record" as "Yes" or "No"). As we mostly create user accounts for our organization, we would like to have "Yes" as a default value. The settings update is currently considered as enhancement.

  7. Add Course Reserve Public Notes to Primo VE record details display

    A proscribed set of Course Information can be displayed in the Primo VE record details, but there is no way to add other notes or information related to course reserve in Primo VE, as there is in Leganto. There is a Public Notes field in Alma's Reading List > Citation > Citation Parameters settings, but this note can only be displayed in Leganto. If the Public Note could be made available for display in the Primo VE record as well it could be used in conjunction with the Course Information display to provide important information to end users -- for…

  10. Actions - email record function - Please give indication an email has been sent

    When emailing a record (via Actions - email ) it would be great if there was some indication that an email was sent. We often get several emailed records from clients regarding the same item – and one has mentioned it would be great to know it’s been successfully sent. Currently the pop box for entering email details just disappears once submitted.

  11. Patron must agree the borrowing request agreement in Primo before booking a Kindle book

    The customer of 86CUHKSZ would like to add a borrowing request agreement in Primo, so when a patron wants to book a Kindle book, the borrowing request agreement must be read and agreed at first, otherwise, the patron cannot book the Kindle book. And the customer would like to have an interface to update the agreement accordingly.

  13. Relais third-node adapter

    There should be a way to search consortium library ILSes using Metalib or a z39.50 third-node adapter. We are currently building a metalib quickset to federate search across the consortium. We hate relais' discovery service so we would like to keep users in primo. Currently, the relais link in the new UI is for known items. We would like to create a consortium based union catalog. Even better would be if this could get accomplished by daily automated harvesting within PCI (leaving d2d's web API to check availability and process the loan). If you think this would require additional resources,…

  14. make sign-in reminder above items list sticky

    for records with large numbers of items attached it would improve the user experience if the banner which reminds users to sign in to place requests was 'sticky' so that it was always visible no matter how far down the list of items they are. for instance, our staff have reported user confusion when browsing for a specific physicval volume of a long-running journal title - they eventually find the item they want but then don't know how to get it because there's no sign in option.

  16. Allow for integration with the PaperPile citation manager to Primo VE

    PaperPile is a citation manager that integrates with Google Docs. We'd love to see citations that are available to be scraped by it in Primo.

  17. Allow the view code field to be editable

    To enable seamless updates to the Primo interface it would be useful for the Code for the view to be editable.

    This would allow you to continue to use the same public address for your Primo instance, but switch the view to a new one by changing the code in the Back Office. For example, it would allow you to switch from a the current live view to a new one.

    Currently the field cannot be edited (see screenshot).

  18. Primo VE : possibility to search /filter by code or label within a label table

    In Primo VE, it is currently possible to search for labels and code, but this just allows you to search for, and access to the good label table. Once inside a given table, it is only possible to filter by label language. We would like to add the possibility to search or filter within the tab by code or label, such as what is currently possible on Primo BO, where you can search and display only the line you are looking for, without scrolling along the whole table or using a Ctrl+F. This would be much more effective for administrators.

  19. fix Primo's proxying functionality so it can handle encoding

    Propose a solution to this problem: When people try to access content from Primo to Artstor, they are being authenticated into our proxy. After initial authentication into proxy, patrons are not linked to the Artstor result; they are shown an error page (Artstor error), or a generic Artstor resource page--not the actual result. Now that they are logged into the proxy, if they try to access the same link from Primo again, they can get to the result in Artstor properly.

  20. Ability to save phone number in "my account"

    I would love it if I could save my phone number in my account so I don't have to type it in every time to send a record to my phone.
