Serials

Automatically generate date call numbers from existing serials data

8

The Serials module understands publication date and publication frequency. It would be nice if that data could be used to auto-generate a call number rather than us users having to fill it in manually every time.  If a magazine is issued weekly, auto-fill February 2, 2017, etc.  If monthly, February 2017.  And so on.

The date format could be set by using receipt template style codes.

Make incorrect spellings & obsolete dates delete-able in Manage Issues interface

9

When adding a new issue in Serials Batch Receive, previously entered incorrect spellings are available in the Call Number field drop-down menu (such as "Galmour" for Glamour). Also incorrectly entered dates and way obsolete dates are still available in the the date drop-down menu in Holdings Maintenance. It is time consuming and frustrating to have to scroll through information you're never going to use every time you add a new magazine.

Allow user to actually cancel Receive/Move Selected operation midway through.

7

If you accidentally pick the wrong issuance to receive, there is no way to stop the process.  The Cancel buttons on the barcode and call number pop-ups don't actually cancel anything, they just force the issuance through with default-generated values.  Then you have to set that issuance back to expected and start over.  This is a tedious process.

Add Part When Receiving Serial Issuance

13

If units are created when receiving serial issuances, the user should have the option to add a part in addition to a barcode and call number.  If parts are used for patron placed holds, each issuance will need this data.  Staff should not have to input this data separately in the volume editor.

Edit individual entry or screen on the caption and patterns wizard

The idea here is to change one thing instead of having to walk through the whole wizard.

Strict barcode for periodical issues

7

It's too easy to enter incorrect barcodes in Serials mode. We need something like the "use check digit" functionality in the unified editor to save us from our sometimes inaccurate scanners.
