    Thank you for suggesting this idea, the direction is to enable customers to show more links and offer some configuration options to set preferences.

    Note that this is not something that we can do in the near future since it is a complex change.

    This would also be useful if there's a feature that one library has a Highly Specific need to not display. Instead of Ex Libris creating a config parameter just for them, the library could just create a "display:none" rule for that element.

    I've seen one or two suggestions like this on Ideas Exchange already (eg someone wanted to be able to stop lecturers from editing availability dates) and in our case, when lecturers add an item we'd like to be able to hide the "Save" button so they're forced to "Save and edit". No-one else in the world is likely to want to do the same so we haven't bothered putting the request in - but a general ability to edit CSS would let us solve this specific problem too.

    This is already possible but not entirely intuitive: first you have to collapse the sections, then when you hover over them you get the blue bar on the right that you can click and drag.

    It would be useful if some option was visible when the section isn't collapsed. Eg arrows to the right of the section header, or an option in the "..." menu.

    I agree on the usefulness but it is something that would vary by class/lecturer. Ideally it would allow the lecturer to choose whether or not to display it. So config settings in Alma might be:

    * always on,
    * opt-in (defaults to off but lecturer can turn it on)
    * opt-out (defaults to on but lecturer can turn it off)
    * always off

    Books should definitely be prioritised over book reviews! But otherwise owned editions should be prioritised over non-owned, and full text available over non-full text available.

    We'd then prefer to prioritise full-text over physical, but other libraries may have a different preference so this should perhaps be configurable.

    I'd include in this merging expiry dates (probably with the date farthest in the future "winning").

    A regular use case for us is that we set expiry dates to the roles we give our fixed-term student assistants, but many of them return the following year. Currently we have to manually edit the dates for each of the roles for each of the returning assistants. It would save a lot of time to be able to just update the role, and have the updated expiry dates flow through.

    Our use cases might be a bit different but the general idea is similar enough I'm commenting here rather than starting a new thread.

    The background is that a) we're starting Leganto with a small trial only and b) we have very few, very busy staff, so it's just not practical to have everyone log into Alma every day on the off-chance there's something they need to do.

    We can set up Analytics reports to email, but these will always be about two days out of date.

    So what we need are direct/immediate email notifications, specifically:

    * Our short loans staff need to receive email notifications (preferably to their shared email inbox, which isn't a personal login account) of new books added to lists - we've configured these to automatically get the "Ready for Processing" status so these show up in that tasklist.
    -Alternatively we'll try to encourage lecturers to add a note to library on these items so an email notification of these notes would help. But we can't always rely on them to remember, so a notification on the status would be preferable.

    * Our copyright staff need to receive email notifications of anything in the "Citation has a New File" and "Copyright waiting for approval" tasklists

    Support this - we've had to turn off bX recommendations entirely as with them there, the instructors would never notice the library discussion option.

    This is critical for us too, and any other New Zealand institutions that might join in future.
