  1. "Time Period" facet / filter > needs Reverse Alpha Sort

    The "Time Period" facet / filer has sorts by numeric occurrence and by alphabetical sort; however, since many of the terms in the subfield are dates, the ability to find current dates requires you to scroll through way too many entries, since it begins with 1 AD. Request to provide a Reverse Alpha Sort (most recent - call it what you may) - so that users can on demand begin with the current era and work backwards.

  2. User defined facet

    Please add the feature "User defined facet".

    As Summon over Alma user, we feel current default facets sometimes are not enough to filter library records. For exmaple, there is no way to filter Print Journal. If Summon prepares "User difined facet", we can provide the detailed library records via Summon to our patrons.

  3. Ebook Usage Report

    We can see e-Journal usage by title on 360 usage report but for e-Books, we only see Database lebel usage.
    It would be better if we can check e-Books title lebel usage.

  4. Add "Include matches in Full Text" to "some suggestions to improve your search"

    It would be helpful if user can re-search by "Include matches in Full Text" on the "some suggestions to improve your search" screen that appears when there are zero results,

  5. custom panel collapse by default

    Allow for the custom panel to be collapsed by default. Instruction Librarians feel that displaying custom panel's create too much distraction on screen.

  8. Support subscriptions with embargoes or rolling cutoff dates

    Right now, if a database collection you subscribe to includes journal date ranges like "to X years ago" Summon/CDI doesn't recognize the cut off date and simply includes the whole subscription up to present in your search index even though the articles are not accessible. When you click a link, it's up to the content provider to determine how to handle the incoming link. ProQuest Research Library, for instance, will not even show you the citation record, but a search error instead. Ideally, CDI would be intelligent enough to handle these rolling cutoff dates and only include recent articles as…

  9. Integrate Summon with Sierra for Live Catalog Updates and Deletes

    Instead of sending the daily updates/deletes in Sierra catalog, having a process that preform this task instantly will improve the search results immediately and will free library staff to do other pending tasks

    Would love to be able to search the Summon Idea Exchange by date of submission? Possible? What's the latest hot enhancements from say, the last three months rather than the last three years?

  11. Toggle on/off for search results autoload

    Many users prefer the scroll to autoload search results. As convenient as that is, it is reportedly posing a difficulty for those who must use screen readers at our institution. They need to be able to load one page at a time. It isn't important if the citations per page is 10, 20, or some other number just as long as they can page forward and backward in the results. I would like to see a way for users to toggle on/off autoload for search results. If that is not possible, then adding a way in the admin console to…

  13. Log Changes to Permissions

    Changes to Client Center Accounts permissions, i.e. 360 Link Admin Console, are currently not logged in 'View Changes'. We do not have a way to check the history of any permissions changes on the account at this time. Having this feature will help us minimize unnecessary confusion and misunderstanding.

  15. client center

    The Client Center staff-side user interface needs to be updated. It looks and functions almost the the same as it did when we first used Serials Solutions in 2004. It's slow and fails accessibility testing.

  16. 360 Resource Manager - Contacts

    With many providers moving to URL-based customer support portals, it would be great if the 360 Resource Manager Contacts area had a URL field to record the support portal URLs.

  17. KBART exporting of 360 collections

    We have the ability to import KBART files into 360 but lack the ability to export collections data in the KBART format. As a result, when libraries need our collections as KBART files we must map the 360 export to a KBART template. Allowing for KBART exporting would simplify this.

  18. Merge audio book holdings into the 'book' record in the same way as print and e-books

    Audio books should be treated in the same way as e and print books and added to the master 'book' record as an additional holding. Currently we have to add audio books as a separate content type so they will always appear as a separate record to the print or e copy and won't be retreived by clicking on the 'book' content type.

  19. Separate out translation for 'Full Text Online' to be independent from full text content link label

    Request to separate translations out so we are able to change the facet label 'Full Text Online' independently without affecting the labels for our content links. We want our content links to use the same phrase as our other institutional systems, 'View online'. However, the phrase does not make grammatical sense as a facet label. At present these two labels are controlled from one phrase, 'Full Text Online' in translations.

  20. Accurate date of publication

    Some times we have unclear publication date for a book, and in such case, we set eg.[19--] at 260$c in Alma.
    Summon calculates it to 1900 and displays it at result page. We would like to display it as 260$c without no change.
    Also eg.[201-] and Kanji notation [明治頃] as well.

    Thank you very much for your cooperation.
