    Our continuous item receiving is done by student workers, making it more likely that they will accidentally receive the 2021 issue instead of the 2020 one and need to undo that mistake. The myriad numbering issues with periodical orders also makes it more likely that this type of order will have MORE receiving errors than books.

    Having a unreceive option, or an option to set the status back to "not in place" is very needed.

    It is confusing to have a column identified as something other than the data it represents in troubleshooting a report.

    It would be very helpful to see that an item is overdue. That could help us deal with some problems immediately instead of trying to email a student and get contact with them. At the end of the semester, it is particularly difficult to get students to notice emails, so to be able to say, "hey, this was overdue" before the student leaves the area would be great.

    I would prefer a font color change or alert at the top of the page. Pop-up notices tend to cause more problems because student workers do not pay attention and scan another barcode which clears the pop-up but doesn't return that book.

    In the Alma New UI, it is possible to add the edition statement to a physical titles result list, however in the physical items result list the edition is not included in the line of Type / Creator / Imprint.
    In dealing with a long list of items it would be very helpful to see which edition of a work the item is from, either in a separate line or combined with the Type / Creator / Imprint. If we have two editions of a multi-volume work having that field included will help identify which volume the description is based on without clicking the title to see the full record and then clicking back. It would also be helpful when looking at a list of items to know which edition we have if we do not know the year of a particular edition.

    I'm interpreting this request to mean, it would be nice to have more specificity in who gets a message sent in the Borrowing Activity Report Job.

    Part of our end-of-semester operations is to send several reminders to undergraduates of the items that they have checked out. To do this without spamming our graduate, staff, and faculty, we run a report of the users in these categories. Export those users and then import them to Alma as a set. Run a job to turn off the Activity Report for these users. Run the Borrowing Activity Report Job manually. Run a job to turn ON the Activity Report for the non-undergraduate groups. The process would be greatly expedited if we could select a user group to receive the notice in the Borrowing Activity Report Job. It would also be helpful if we could set the schedule by type of user (Faculty are scheduled to receive it once a month, students are scheduled to receive it once a week, for example.)

    Another way that we could send these notices more efficiently is if the Update/Notify Users job included Activity Report in the "Send notification to user" options.

    Failing to get traction on this idea, I made a crude TamperMonkey script that does the same thing: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ppSPWDmU4MskLuHX7z-evBDBYf2BbvN5WzgrOU00mFA/edit?usp=sharing
