Serials receiving: "set current unit" should be "sticky"

8

When receiving issuances in serial control view, you should be able to select a default setting for the "set current unit" option.  This setting should be "sticky" and not change from session to session.  In general, libraries either create copies for serials or do not create copies.  They should not have to change this setting each time they log in.

If this setting cannot be made "sticky" it would be helpful if it were made a local setting.

We actually create copies for some titles but not all. For those we do not create copies, we are forever forgetting to change the setting to no unit. Then we have to delete the copy and try again. What would really be helpful if you could set an overall default and then change the setting for specific titles.

We received a quote for this project as part of the March 2014 RFP. The development committee ultimately decided against recommending this project. Since this project purely affects the staff client interface, it might be best to hold off until serials is moved to the new web client.
