If I understand this correctly there could be a reason why we may want to adjust a persons place in a queue for an item. I guess the reason is not important as there could be multiple reasons. 1 example might be staff requiring a book to be on restricted loan in Semester 2. However we are happy for students to borrow the item for the 2 months prior to this. So I would place a request and put myself 2nd in the queue with a Move permanently request.
Would be a very useful feature. Currently queue manipulation is all or nothing with us using higher privileged accounts to push things to the top of the queue

This would be a great addition. We've had a discussion about this today and believe it previously showed as either a column or a popup indicating overdue and the fine associated. So not sure if true why it was removed but it would be very handy.
We are often asked "This is overdue - what's my fine"
It is much easier to discharge the item, see the fine associated and be able to convey that rather than having to do the extra steps required to either used book details to click on user or ask for patron card to check the record.
Definitely a great addition to Alma and would be a welcome addition.
