Please! I fully support this suggestion. There is too much clicking between the brief record screen and the detailed record screen when evaluating search results. Further, if an article is available in a number of databases, the user must also scroll down past the online links to find the abstract/article description. When doing library instruction, I find that these extra steps break our focus on evaluation of search results.

Please disable the auto-send of the activity report upon renewal! This has been a source of confusion at our college as well. As a relatively new Alma user I spent a fair bit of time trying to find a configuration screen to turn this off, to no avail. I was pleased to see that other users were equally frustrated with this.
Our preference is to generate this report as follows:
-a scheduled job
-upon request through via the patron services screen
Best to all!
