  1. Allow key-based SFTP for pipes

    When configuring pipes in Primo it is possible to use SFTP as the harvesting method, but there is no option to use keys for authentication, only to specify a password.

    This is in contrast to when setting up integration profiles in Alma, where key based authentication is possible.
    Please incorporate a system similar to that used in Alma into the SFTP configuration for pipes in Primo.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Ability to run blank search with limiters in advanced search without "*"

    The idea is explained here: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/35373859-ability-to-run-blank-search-with-limiters-primo But the ExLibris solution is to use "*". This idea suggests a possibility to search with limiters in advanced search without any search syntax like double quoted asterisk. Just blank with limiters.

  8. Options for applying Primo Dedup process selectively

    We want options that can prevent two Alma BIBs from being merged by Primo Dedup Process.
    It could be an option per pipe or local record, or any better method. (Related SF Case# 00872193, etc.)

    e.g.)
    * Alma-P : Dedup OFF
    * Alma-E : Dedup ON
    * CDI : Dedup ON
    .
    .
    .

    Currently Primo runs dedup process for all records. (Please correct me if I am wrong.)
    It is a necessary and useful function for electronic resources - especially for articles- but sometimes not for local print materials.

    Catalogers decide whether to maintain separate BIBs or to merge…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Field labels in Brief Record Displays

    It would help the user to make sense of what they are reading in the Brief Record Display if we could include labels for some of the fields -- particularly for "Subject" and "Is part of".

  13. Mask Patron ID

    Currently, only the password is masked in the sign-in form in the new Primo UI and we'd like the Patron ID (username) to be masked in the sign-in form as well.

    Thanks,

  15. 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.

  16. Provide an option for users to see all items in an electronic collection

    Alma allows us to make the bib record for an electronic collection like Wiley e-Books viewable by customers in Primo. We would like the contents of the electronic collection to be displayed when the user clicks on the electronic collection name in Primo.

  17. Users should be able to choose the length of the result page between 10 and 100 results per page

    Users should be able to choose the length of the result page between 10 and 100 results per page according to predefined steps.
    The option to do so should be available for unsigned users and should be persisted if a user is signed in.

  18. Add Code management or a "lock/check-out" feature for PrimoVE customization package in Alma

    Add Code management or a "lock/check-out" feature for PrimoVE customization package in Alma

    It is currently possible for two staff members to download the "Current View Customization Package" in Alma to make updates to PrimoVE at the same time. When the second person uploads the package they will unknowingly overwrite the other person's changes. It would be great to implement versioning and/ or a way to "lock" the option to customize the package when another person is working on it.

  19. Pre-load images

    Patrons have reported latency for loading search results in Primo. And our observation shows that:
    - Images are always loaded at the last and it normally take a few seconds to be loaded completely
    - The thumbnails are likely meaningful only for books (book covers) while other types are loaded with default icons
    Our suggestion: Pre-load image for non-book items (e.g., article, video and etc) in hope to improve user experience with search.
