  1. Populate the partner_code XML field in Resource Sharing Shipping and Return slips with Alma library code

    Situation: We are using a 3rd party logistical company to deliver the Rapido requests from Swiss libraries around Switzerland. After the shipping or return slips are printed in Alma, libraries are filling in the logistical details in the 3rd party system by picking the destination library from a list of libraries.

    Idea: We would like the XML field…

    See this documentation that provides code needed to add to the letters:

    Best Regards,

  2. Add borrowing library to Change Rapido Request Terms Letter

    Use case: When a rapido request can’t be fulfilled by library A and is rejected > Rota starts. If there is a change in costs, time, and so on the patron receives the Change Rapido Request Terms Letter e-mail. Theoretically, they are then allowed to cancel the request in Primo. If they are too late (which will probably be the case) they have to contact the library.

    Problem: There is no contact detail of the borrowing library attached to the request in the letter XML, only the name of the IZ-level entity. Patrons do not have enough information in the…

    Upon review, I am updating the status to already supported. I am understanding the need to be that the borrowing library's contact information be included in the letter that is delivered to local users. The letters can be customized to include a library's contact information. 

    I am linking a few resources, there is a lot of content about letter customization.
