  1. Make links in Collection descriptions appear as hypertext

    In Alma Digital collections, you can put a bunch of text in a collection description, but URLs always appear as plain text in Primo.

  2. Navigation within My Favorites should be more user-friendly

    Navigation within My Favorites is tedious: When a favorite is removed or when the list is relabeled, you always go to the top of the list instead of the original starting point.

  3. 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. Make the table under Discovery > Configure Views > Full Record Services > Record Details drag and drop enabled

    When a user has more than 5 fields in the Edit Full Display Details, it's extremely onerous to have to click the up or down arrows to move data fields (such as title, identifier, series, etc).

    This table should be drag and drop.

  8. Primo - Set up display logic rules - document type level

    Set up display logic rules not at the level of a target or a service but at the level of the document type:
    in particular, no more link or SFX service to be displayed when document type is dataset or patent, it seems SFX does not know how to process datasets metadata.

  9. 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…

  12. My Account - add Leganto Courses and Reading Lists

    Users log in and expect custom information for their account in Alma. Why not display their active courses and reading lists?

  13. 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.

  14. Make location choice mandatory on the resource sharing form

    If a user has the option of choosing between multiple pickup locations in their resource sharing form, make this field mandatory and the location drop down menu read:

    Choose one: (<--- default choice is no choice)
    Location 1
    Location 2
    Location 3
    Etc.

    Right now, the default is based on a setting that could be, for example, the patron's home library. What I'm specifically requesting is that the default is "Choose one" and that the choosing be mandatory.

  15. A-Z ejournals list

    Would it be possible to re-instate the alphabetical groupings of eJournals that used to appear in Primo before Primo VE? This would be in addition to the subject groupings that we now have. The Subject groupings are great, but we have some customers who prefer to search through the alphabetical groupings that we used to have. If it could be something that could be incorporated, but have the ability to turn it off for those that don't want it on their Primo VE that would be great. Different people look for things in different ways and I think having both…

  16. 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.

  18. 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,…

  19. Configure collection discovery to display in shelflist order

    We are using Collection Discovery to create new books browsing for our top subject areas but it would be great if they could display in shelflist order so like books group together.
    What we really want is a low maintenance bookshelf browse feature which auto populates with new resources and removes the old. Anyway, display in LCC or some shelflist order would be good, even if the call number is hidden (because many are ebooks and it might confuse patrons).
