  2. Make the 50-item limit on Saved Items in Summon configurable.

    You can only save 50 items in the saved folder in Summon. It is not configurable.

  3. There is no way to mass unapply database filters (except by clearing all filters).

    When you apply database filters to a search term and then start a new search, those databases still show as selected and you have to untick them one by one. The only way to clear them is either manually or by using "Clear all filters", but that also clears other filters such as fulltext online, etc.

    Can we have an option to mass unapply database filters?

  4. Allow the brief results from your catalogue to be configurable

    It would be useful if the fields available in the brief results could be configurable. It would be useful to be able to either remove fields altogether, or to at least have labels displaying, such as "Series" , "Pub Date" etc

  6. Summon over Alma: Change Alma Service Page UI language by Summon UI language

    For Summon over Alma clients, Summon is the only OPAC for patrons. At present, only 1 direct link rule can be set. The link rule to Alma Service Page has language parameter, but it cannot be set by Summon UI language differently from Primo. We'd like to request that Summon has the feature to set multiple languages parameters by Summon UI language. Currently, from Summon English page results, Alma service page displays Japanese UI. This is inconvenient for English patrons.

  7. "Automatic holdings management" process for database "eBooks on EBSCOhost" (CZZ)

    We buy single title e-books from ebsco regularly and have to activate the titles manually in the Client Center (database "eBooks on EBSCOhost"). It would make things much easier if there is a "automatic holdings management" process for this database.

  8. Workable automatic authentication of ExLibris books purchased in Summon

    Can we please have an automatic authentication system for ExLibris books we purchase that works? The current system does not work.

    We have had significant problems with a delay between purchasing a books via ExLibris and these books being searchable in our Summon- backed library site (books purchased on 22.9 are still not viewable on 2.11 - despite countless emails and tickets).

  9. Set up ‘search within’ functionality for ProQuest One Literature in Summon

    Would it be possible to set up 'search within' functionality in Summon for the One Literature database? I understand that this is not currently possible at present so have been recommended to suggest this via the Ideas Exchange.

  10. Provide cloud storage with a login for saved items

    It is confusing for the saved items to disappear. It would be great if users could log in to Summon to save their items.

  13. no automatic loading service in 360 core client centre

    In 360 Core client centre, we really miss the functionality of activating the automatic loading service for (pe.) Elsevier, Jstor, Ovid/LWW, Proquest etc.
    In SFX en Alma, this is available.

    Does anyone this missing too?

  15. Allow for the ordering of EJP results

    We'd like to be able to decide how results should show up in the Journals search: a specific example (see attached image) would be if you are searching on "nature", then the journals with "nature" in the real title (as opposed to the Alternate Title) would rise to the top. Right now they come back in alphabetical order and we feel this is counterintuitive - more helpful would be how results in most other places come back, with relevancy rankings incorporated.

    Please note: We know that you can remove alternate titles in the search results, but we'd like to retain…

  17. Fix EZproxy rewriting on altmetric links

    Citation count links to Web of Science and Scopus are rewritten under an EZproxy session but links to altmetric are not. The stanza needs updating: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Summon/ProductDocumentation/OverviewofTheSummonService/TheSummonAdministrationConsole/Summon%3AWeb-BasedProxy_Support

  18. Database recommendations based on content type facet

    Currently the database recommender is powered by tags (and an algorithm based on the result set?). We would like for the content type facet to also power database recommendations. For example, if the music facet is selected, Naxos is recommended. If the standards facet is selected, Standards Australia is recommended. The new database facet assists with this to a degree, but it is not foolproof.

  19. Increase limit on collected search strings in OBI usage statistics

    OBI usage statistics keep track of the 200 - 500 search strings per month performed by users. These are available in the Summon Popular Searches report available in OBI.

    It would be useful to have access to a more complete list of search strings each month though, in order to perform analysis such as subjects of interest to users or search trends over time.

    This enhancement request proposes to increase the amount of search strings recorded. A preferred options would be to allow institutions to set how many search strings would be recorded per month (ie. ranging from none to…
