  1. Physical items sort routine by date - enable I J K descending, but A B C descending

    Hi
    We're running into a problem with the Physical items sort routine - Sort according to date.

    For journals, we want to sort the latest item on top, this works correctly with
    Sort according to chronology I/U/K (year/month/day) - Descending

    Example
    https://basel.swisscovery.org/discovery/fulldisplay?vid=41SLSP_UBS:live&search_scope=UBS&tab=UBS&docid=alma9910177740105504&lang=en&context=L

    BUT
    The same sort routine is also used for multi volume monographs.
    We found out that if we only fill out conditions for Chronology I J K, but those fields are empty, the barcode gets used for sorting.
    Which leads to wrong sorts.

    So we had to add
    Enumeration A, B, C as a condition.

    This leads to…

  2. Availability status for webhooks

    The availability status for Primo Search Webhook records (such as for Newsbank) is always "Check for available services." Our users are accustomed to seeing this status when materials are not available full text online, and we would like the availability status to better indicate that full text is available. It would be great if the default display could be changed to "Available online" for these materials or if we had the ability to modify the display only for webhooks.

  3. Permit creation of a stable URL that would lead to a simple search with all records limited by any facets, e.g., location.

    We'd like to create stable links to entire collections for use on our website, guides and course shells. For example, a link that leads to all records with a given location.

    This is currently possible for Advanced Search with a pre-filter. But users are distracted by Advanced Search's space and complexity, which pushes the results down the page. And if there are multiple languages or material types, the pre-filters would be overly restrictive.

  4. Ability to collapse elements in full title display per view and per search scope slot

    Please add the ability to collapse elements in full title display
    - per view
    - per search scope slot

    We are in a consortium, and some information in the full title display is confusing for our patrons and we have no way to hide it.

    We would like a setting to collapse each element of the full title display separately. This setting needs to be configurable per view and within the view per search scope slot.

    Example:

    We have the search scope slots
    - our IZ
    - NZ & CDI

    Section 'Other loan and request options' should be collapsed in…

  5. CDI indexing non-published "articles"

    We are having an issue of posts to the journal/magazine's website being added to our discovery instance as a result of CDI. The linking for these items inevitably fails as the item is not actually part of the journal/magazine and was never published as part of it.

    We would like to ask for such items to be excluded from CDI indexing.

    An example of an article with this problem: https://thediplomat.com/2020/08/was-your-face-mask-made-using-forced-labor-in-china/

  7. Primo - "related titles sorted alphabetically by title" also for Primo direct / classic not VE

    In Primo VE one can have related titles sorted alphabetically by title
    This is particularly useful for multipart, journals, and in general complex record structure. Unfortunately, this is possible only in Primo VE, but not in classic Primo.
    It would be useful if the 2 versions of Primo were aligned also regarding this very useful feature.

  8. Give customers the option to have a custom multilingual file for synonyms and compound words.

    We are a multilingual network, catering to four languages. It is very important to us to ensure that customers find the same resources regardless of the UI language they use. As one of our UI languages does not have a synonyms file, it is currently not possible for us to incorporate synonyms beyond those included by default in our Primo, as this would lead to differing search results for this language. We would like this to be solved by allowing customers to use a dedicated multilingual file for synonyms, compound words etc. that they can customize to their needs.

    - CDI Search activation status
    - We subscribe to only some titles in this collection
    - CDI-only full text activation
    - Do not show as Full Text available in CDI even if active in Alma

  10. CDI article title in English but article is in a different language

    CDI article title has English title, but when article is accessed, it is in a different language. CDI title should be in language of article.
