    Dear community, this idea was reviewed and accepted, below you can find the suggested design, please feel free to comment if you have further suggestion:

    1. It will be possible to sort the interested users list using arrows. The hold requests will be activated as per the order in the interested users tab.

    2. A check mark for ‘Loan to first interested user’ will cause the received item to be automatically loaned to the first interested user when the item is received.

    3. It will be possible to print the list of users (in the proper order) when the item is received

    Thanks,
    Noam Fass | Alma product management team

    I find it absolutely astounding that you still can't sort the interested user list. It's such a basic function of any good LMS.

    If a patron has been waiting several weeks for a book on order, and another patron comes along and is added to the list, we want the first patron who requested the item to be the first person on the list. Currently Alma adds people any which way, meaning someone who has been waiting months might end up at the bottom of the list.

    For journal circulation, it is really important that the right people receive the journal in a timely fashion. Without the ability to sort the interested user list, we've ended up with people who are interested in browsing a journal for fun, listed before those requiring fast access to articles in the journal in order to do their job.

    I don't know of any library that would want their interested users to be sorted randomly, with no ability to move names around if/when required.

    I really hope this is something that will be fixed by ExLibris soon.

    I agree, this seems like an uneccessary step. Once the patron has been selected from the list, we should not have to click 'go' as well. The selection has already been made.

    The solution approach will be to add a link from the user contact info pop up to the user record. This link will be available for users that have a role that allows viewing a full user record.

    By having this link added to the user information pop up we will have added to the many places where user information is displayed.

    I have noticed there are several ideas suggested in the ideas exchange regarding linking a patron's name and/or ID to their record in Alma.
    These include:
    - 'Link patron loan to patron record' (posted 25/05/2016)
    - 'Hyperlinking from request queue/holdshelf to patron record' (posted 21/09/2017)
    - Ability to view patron data via patron ID link in resource sharing' (posted 11/01/2018)
    - Linking patron name to patron record (posted 29/01/2018)
    Linking from the patron name to the patron record would assist workflow significantly in many areas of Alma. It seems to be an ongoing theme in the ideas exchange and I hope ExLibris will consider this enhancement in the near future.

    When an item is returned in Alma, the screen displays the patron name, which is hyperlinked through to their patron record.

    I wondered whether this feature could be incorporated into the Active Hold Shelf and/or the Resource Request Monitoring list and/or the Request Queue as well. Currently these pages display the patron name, but the name is not hyperlinked to their record (see examples attached). It would be extremely useful to be able to go directly from the Request Queue to the patron record, or the Active Hold Shelf to the patron record in order to loan the requested item without going through the ‘manage patron services’ search.

    Hyperlinking the patron name so we could go directly from one page to the other would significantly improve workflow for us.
