    > for the first one you have to click 'include', before you can exclude it

    Just found out that this behaviour is not consistent – for some facets Exclude works as expected, also if you only exclude one (Primo VE).

    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    Excluding several facets at once is possible, but for the first one you have to click 'include', before you can exclude it.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    Change background of the exclude icon (thank you, FF):

    .available-facets .section-content .md-chips .md-chip .md-button:before
    {background-color: #fff; }

    Example https://basel.swisscovery.org/discovery/search?query=any,contains,css&tab=UBS&search_scope=UBS&vid=41SLSP_UBS:live&lang=en

    ----

    If somebody knows how to right align the icons, please let me know.

    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    Change border colour of the include check box:

    md-checkbox .md-icon {
    border-color: #DDD;
    }

    ---

    Change background colour of 'Apply Filters':

    .multiselect-submit .multiselect-submit-inner .md-button.md-primary, .prm-positive-bg {
    background-color: #008488;
    }

    .multiselect-submit:hover .multiselect-submit-inner:hover .md-button.md-primary:hover, .prm-positive-bg:hover {
    background-color: #A5D7D2;
    }
    ---

    Change the colour of the exclude icon:

    .available-facets .section-content .md-chips .md-chip .button-exclude {
    color: #ECECEC;

    There's another problem with the UX as it is at the moment:
    When you do an OR selection by putting a checkmark left to several facets at once, this only works correctly for facets within the same facet type.
    If you combine facets from different types, the search that is done is AND, not OR.

    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    "making the filter options static - including the persistent (lock) option- would go a long way to improving the usability of facets for users."

    This is also true in Primo VE.

    Yes, this is bad UX.

    "Has activity" should be the only option, anyway (until they're all shown on one page).

    Via the Alma mailing list:

    Cross your fingers: this got to place 5 of the 2022 NERS voting, round 2.

    There's an additional UX aspect to it:

    Our default sort is 'Relevance'
    https://basel.swisscovery.org/discovery/search?query=any,contains,gr%C3%BCne%20heinrich%20gute%20schriften%201945&tab=41SLSP_DN_CI&search_scope=DN_and_CI&vid=41SLSP_UBS:live&lang=en&offset=0

    Once the patron clicks on the first title, the sort changes to 'Date - newest' without the patron actively changing the setting – this should just not happen.

    (Also wrong: why do I see the author's name three times?)

    Another example:
    https://twitter.com/th_schmid/status/1501923145804140544

    I search for his terms, with the additional step to re-sort the list of versions to 'Relevance' -> what he's looking for is shown as hit number 10.

    https://basel.swisscovery.org/discovery/search?query=any,contains,gr%C3%BCne%20heinrich%20gute%20schriften%201945&tab=41SLSP_DN_CI&search_scope=DN_and_CI&sortby=rank&vid=41SLSP_UBS:live&facet=frbrgroupid,include,9037558257009394094&lang=en&offset=0&came_from=sort

    => But when I switch from FRBR Generic to FRBR Preferred *, Primo VE is perfectly able to show the work the patron is looking for, see screenshot.

    * we probably won't do that, because it's confusing in other ways

    Only made it to rank 60 in NERS 2022.

    If you have a case open with Ex Libris about this, please add that it's a parity issue and needs to be fixed for Primo VE.

    Thank you.

    In Primo VE there is no option to sort the FRBR versions by Relevancy

    > I believe this a flaw in Primo VE design

    I completely agree.

    If I switch from FRBR Generic to FRBR Preferred, I get to see "the highest ranked record from the results set" in the short title list.

    This is the record that should be the FIRST title in the list of versions, also with the Generic setting.

    This is very much not the case.

    > An alternate approach to this might be to enable "search within" the FRBR group titles,

    I do not agree. I search for something = I only want to see results that contain my search terms.

    There should not be an additional step "now show me the things I actually was searching for".

    This makes our catalog basically a joke. We are a university library and you can't search for an exact title.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    I think the way FRBR groups work at the moment is not logical and should be changed.

    > a user is searching for ... Homer's Iliad translated by Richmond Lattimore

    https://basel.swisscovery.org/discovery/search?query=any,contains,Homer%27s%20Iliad%20translated%20by%20Richmond%20Lattimore&tab=UBS&search_scope=UBS&vid=41SLSP_UBS:live&lang=en

    114 versions found.

    It's ok to bundle different versions in a FRBR group, but only those works that contain the search terms.

    Even advanced search isn't helping.

    And the author facet isn't helping because it can't show more than 50 entries and Lattimore is not among them.

    Hi Jesse

    As a workaround, have you tried
    Ranking configuration – Resource type boosting?

    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Product_Documentation/020Primo_VE/Primo_VE_(English)/040Search_Configurations/Configuring_the_Ranking_of_Search_Results_in_Primo_VE

    "To specify a negative boost, enter a value between 0.0 and 1.0 (such as 0.01)."

    ---

    At least in Primo VE the change should take effect almost immediately, no need to re-index.

    My guess is that this was hardcoded in 2018, but no longer is.

    Could the idea be closed to free the votes?
