    I agree. The resources staff need to be able to quickly set up and take down import profiles as we get many types of files coming in from different vendors and they sometimes need slightly different profiles. Yes, import profiles are a very powerful tool and they need to be managed carefully. However resources staff have access to other equally powerful tools eg Normalization Rules and I am sure that each library has worked out how to work with them and which staff have access to them and which ones do not. We should not have to get systems admin staff to have to set up import profiles for profiles we may only use a couple of times for particular files. Systems admin staff should be configuring more long term parameters, eg opening hours, terms of use, etc, etc.

    It probably has not been done because there is an extra layer beneath 'Citation' where you have to select the citation style you want, i.e. APA, MLA, Harvard, etc. All the other actions you can perform on all the pinned items are straightforward. Citation would be a little more complicated because of the choice of citation styles. However, it is worth having the feature even if ExLibris has to do a bit of work to add the extra layer for the choice. It has my 3 votes.

    I agree. I do understand some results pages do not have results that have MMS IDs associated with them but most do not.
    The idea title implies that it is only from Manage Sets Results pages. The idea is for *all* results pages in Alma. For me, it is usually Search Results pages that I look at.
    With the MMS IDs we can then take these and input them into Analytics. At the moment, I can only do this for barcodes (and maybe a few other things). But if I could use the powerful Advanced Search to get a set of MMS IDs, then I could put these into the filter - MMSID - contains any. Then Alma Advanced Search and Analytics can work together using the strengths of each other.
