    Yes I agree, it has caused workflow issues for us. I am reluctant to add the extended role for everyone who needs to manage holdings. It is an auditing risk and we are audited on a regular basis.

    Exactly! It's a "contains" search not a proper "starts with" search, which is most useful for call number searches

    A date oldest is also relevant to some readers

    This is possible in Millennium and Sierra. Now that we have a shared view forward between ExLibris and III, perhaps we need a separate section of ideas for the functionality that could now be incorporated into Alma? I have a list.

    Thanks Itai. While this would be fine if I was only to copy from Alma, I want to COPY multiple fields from systems such as the LibrariesAustralia Cataloguing Client or MARCEdit (or Notepad), which are plain text MARC editors, and then PASTE those multiple fields into Alma, which is not currently possible. They all end up in the one field with the tags inside the field.

    I went to run this job today and realised this job does not exist in Alma, which was very disappointing. I have a batch of physical items that are still in transit and were never scanned in when they went to the reading room and I can't just zap them and fix the problem like I used to be able to do. Another job for the devs to build.

    This is so clunky. I had to google the documentation.

    That's an interesting idea but for our use case, all of the copies are available and are in the same library. We just want to have a priority associated with each location code so that particular locations within the library are assigned to users in preference to other locations if both are available.

    YES! I would love a priority list of location codes so that legal deposit can be issued as a lower priority than the lending copy and rare books lower still. We had this in our old LMS and it worked a treat.

    Sort by time stamp would be useful too

    Browse by call number of many formats, browse by classification fields and browse by all other indexed fields.

    YES. We export records out of Alma to globally update them and then re-import them but we don't want the suppression tag to change, either all suppressed or all unsuppressed, we want them to just stay the same as they were already.

    Being able to APPEND information to the end of an existing note without wiping out the other contents would also be really helpful
