  1. 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.

  2. Primo VE link should open in

    In Primo Classic, main menu links have an option to open links in current windows or new window/tab. In Primo VE links open into a new tab, it would be good to have the option to open a new search in the current window.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Allow API retrieval of a user's saved searches

    We would like the ability to retrieve a user's saved searches via API, in order to allow for the user's searches to be displayed with other user information (e.g., in a library website user account).

    There is an existing API, in the DevTools' Network tab as
    /primo_library/libweb/webservices/rest/v1/savedSearches?vid=..., which requires a Guest or User JWT.

    However, this API has not been added to the API Gateway for public use. We would like for this to be added to the API Gateway.

  10. Import excel file to Journal Search Category labels

    Journal Search Categories are possible to export as an excel file. It should also be possible to import the excel file, after editing it in excel. That possibility already exists for the Journal search labels. Why not for Journal Search Categories also?

  11. Allow custom scopes for CDI records, for an "articles only" drop-down search profile

    Currently, custom scopes that allow for setting conditions include only local data from Alma, and do not include any CDI records, even if blended with CDI. This means it is not possible to create a search profile with a custom data scope of with "Resource type: articles". Instead, in order to limit a search to only articles, the user must use the facets on the left-hand side of the page. I think this is a common search parameter that should ideally be available in the drop-down menu to the right of the search bar.

  14. Primo VE - Local Resource Type order to match Primo BO functionality

    When defining Local Resource Types in Primo VE, there is no option to adjust the order that the rules are checked, unlike in Primo BO. Being able to define the order of rules can help arranging them from most specific to least specific.

  15. Add a Deploy button to all screens that require a deploy

    So may times we forget or don't know that a deploy is required for a change to be implemented into production.

    1. It would really nice that any feature that requires a deploy a deploy now button be included on the screen (some sections already have this feature)
    2. It would be even better if there was a banner at the top of the admin panel if there were changes that require a deploy to implement pending so that Administrators can easily see that a deploy is required.

  16. Differenciate display of GetItOther depending on search scope slot

    We're in a consortium, with the search scope slots
    - IZ
    - NZ + CDI

    In both search scope slots we want to display the call numbers of all consortium libraries in the full title display.

    It is possible to collapse the call numbers from outside our IZ:
    https://www.carli.illinois.edu/products-services/i-share/discovery-interface/custom_package_collapsegetitother

    But we'd like to differenciate:
    - collapsed in search scope slot IZ
    - open in search scope slot NZ + CDI

  19. Display all editions of FRBR items even when using scroll wheel or right button

    In brief display in Primo, we can choose what will be displayed when a user clics on an FRBR title :
    - a single item / a single edition in full display chosen by an algorithm ;
    - or the list of all editions in brief display. This is what we have chosen to display, so our users can't miss the fact that we have several editions of the same book.

    But it actually only works if the user uses the left button of a mouse.

    When using scroll wheel or right button, you always have an item chosen by…

  20. Provide system performance metrics

    The Ex Libris Systems Status page only provides simple up/down and planned maintenance information. While this is important, it does not help with other issues, such as slow response time.
    We would like to have access to system performance metrics, including volume of API calls and response time. This could be set up as more detailed information linked from the system status page, or perhaps as reports in the analytics system.

    Although I'm entering this as a primo improvement, it applies to all hosted products.
