  1. Out-of-Print book availability

    One of the more frustrating aspects currently when selectors order back titles is that the titles frequently end up unfulfilled. When ordered in a competitor's system these titles would have been sourced through a rather robust out-of-print network of vendors that ensured availability for these back titles (such as Alibris or Abebooks). It would be great to see such a service incorporated in Rialto so that these titles do not go from ordered>>back ordered>>backorder duration reached, order canceled.

  3. Streamlined platform license activation

    Rialto administrators should be able to request activation for new platforms from within Railto. This will streamline the process for setting up new platforms that we'd like to order from.

  5. Add fields to Market Search export

    Current behavior: When you export a list of titles from a Market Search, the spreadsheet includes only three fields: title, author, and language.

    Desired behavior: When you export a list of titles from a Market Search, the spreadsheet fields should include: title, author, publication year, publisher, binding, material, ISBN13, classification, license, and price.

    This would match the behavior of exporting to Excel from 'My Lists' or 'My Feeds.'

  7. Option to share list with all Rialto users

    Currently, individual users must be assigned to shared lists. This is a huge waste of time in large libraries where there are more than 30 users with specific Rialto roles. Ideally there would be an option to share lists with all rialto selectors, orderers, admin, etc. The option can even define groups based on user roles. This option should also work when a list should no longer be shared. Instead of clicking on a few dozen Xs, there should be the option to revert the list back to private.

  9. Hide vendor notes from selectors

    Remove the ability for selector roles to be able to add vendor notes, as this can delay orders and notes tend to be added by approvers.

  10. Display list owner name when viewing detailed information from the "In Other's List" tag

    When looking at an item that is on another's list, one can hover over the tag to see the name of the list that the item is on. It would be helpful if the name of the owner of that list was also included in the information to facilitate communication about the title if necessary.

  11. Added detail to badges

    We sometimes see the badge "in your institution" for an item in the marketplace, but when looking at the detailed holdings information, it's actually a different edition or format. It would be helpful to have an alternate badge in those cases: something like "in your institution- mismatched ISBN", "in your institution- alternate edition", or "in your institution- alternate format". This way, we could tell at a glance whether we owned the exact edition or format we're looking to purchase.

  12. Add vendor account information to the EDI file

    Currently, EDI files for Rialto do not include the vendor account information, requiring us to manually enter this information for each invoice. This requires numerous extra clicks in order to close invoices. Per Alma's documentation, this information can be automatically populated using the RFF+API input field. We would like the EDI configuration updated to include this field.

  13. Separate finalizing stage from Purchase Request form page with confirmation message and link to create new request

    Currently, the finalizing stage is completed on the same page as the rest of the form. However, I believe it would be more effective if the message of finalization appeared on a different, separate page, where the patron doesn't see the request fields. This separation would provide a clearer distinction between the completion of the form and the finalization process.

    Additionally, I recommend adding a link in the finalizing stage page, that allows the user to create a new Purchase Request.

    I believe these enhancements would improve the user experience and make the process more transparent and user-friendly.

  14. Have more control over the Shelving Library/Location drop down list

    Currently the Shelving Library/Location drop down list cannot be changed and it appears to be in order of when a library was created in Alma.

    We would prefer the order to be either:
    -alphabetical order
    -alphabetical order, with the logged in users home library at the top (as is the order when placing requests in Alma fulfillment).
    This would make it easier for selectors to find the library they want to order for.

    We would also like the ability to exclude libraries from this list. Currently our eResources library displays.

    We will take a look at the out-of-order library list in Shelving Library/Location.  This appears to be a defect--in the future you can report these to Support directly if you'd like.


    Regarding hiding libraries, you can scope your user roles to the relevant ordering library/libraries and it will only show libraries and locations that that ordering library has "Acquire For" relationships with.  See: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/010Alma_Online_Help_(English)/030Fulfillment/080Configuring_Fulfillment/020Fulfillment_Infrastructure/010Libraries

  15. Reporting code selection

    After the March update, we are seeing a drop down with radio buttons for the reporting code field. You must select the reporting code and then click off of the drop down in order for the drop down to disappear. This is not efficient when working through the orders. Since this is new behavior implemented by the Rialto developers, we would like to have the ability to disable this feature and regress back to the original behavior which is being able to select recently used or selecting the code then having the drop down disappear after the selection.

  16. Ability to configure purchase forms in Alma

    Add the ability to configure the purchase forms used in the cart by selectors.

    At the moment you can change what fields are viewed as default by your institution but they can be reselected by an individual user creating their own view.

    For example we do not use item policy and we do not want all users being able to send notes to vendors from this form.

  17. Continuous, dynamic DDA deduping based on Alma holdings

    Currently, if a book is in our DDA pool, and then we acquire it in another Alma collection, the book remains in our DDA pool (allowing us to trigger a book we already have) unless we follow a tedious manual process for identifying and removing such books from the DDA pool. This enhancement would make it so our Alma holdings "talk back" to LibCentral, so if we get a new book, and if that book is in our DDA pool, it is automatically removed from the DDA pool in Rialto, Ebook Central/LibCentral, and in the Alma repository.This would reduce the…

  18. Trouble with one-time orders when invoice line total price is lower than the PO Line total price

    For Rialto one-time orders, if the invoice line total price is lower than the PO Line total price, Alma does not update the order and invoice correctly. Alma does not release the remaining encumbrance, nor does it update the Invoice Status to Fully Invoiced and the POL status to Closed. You can run three Alma jobs to release the encumbrance and fix the statuses, but we believe 1) Alma should do this automatically instead of requiring customers to run jobs or 2) Ex Libris should offer the ability to release the encumbrance just like it does now with continuous orders.

  20. Automatically remove titles that no long meet DDA Selection Plan criteria from Rialto DDA pool, Ebook Central/LibCentral and Alma repository

    When a DDA title increases in cost so it exceeds the maximum cost we set for our DDA, it becomes untriggerable and inaccessible on the Ebook Central platform, but the title remains in our DDA pool in Rialto and our Alma holdings, so users can find the title in Primo but cannot access it. Removing these titles requires a cumbersome manual workflow. This enhancement would make it so titles that no longer meet our DDA selection plan criteria are removed from our DDA pool automatically in Rialto, Ebook Central/LibCentral, and in the Alma repository.This would ensure users don't discover inaccessible…
