click reduction

In MARC edit, tab should skip field numbers, indicators and subfields.

7

When adding or editing a MARC record, tabbing through the bib is very tedious.  Yes, you can use your mouse to click to the right spot, but tabbing would be much faster than using the mouse, if tabbing skipped the stuff that you don't usually edit.

Going from the keyboard to the mouse and back again is slow, tabbing & arrowing is faster for entering data.

Add an option to clear an alert message when the alert is triggered.

14

In Horizon, we had the option to clear a checkin message when it was triggered (a separate button from the Ok button.)  The checkin message would then be deleted and that was it.  Now, if we want to clear the message, we have to go in and edit the item.  I don't want circ staff to have to deal with editing items at the desk, so these things usually end up being sent to tech services.

Set a default for Show More Details/Show Fewer Details on the search results screen

6

Now that the preferred library's items show first in the search results, it would be helpful to be able to set "Show More Details" as a default for staff so they don't have to click it for every search.  This could be a search preference in my account.

Copy buckets should accept full barcodes or just the significant digits

Tom at MVLC says that there is code out for review for this, but it has stalled in the review process.

An easy way to clear a hold when it is picked up by someone else

38

It is very common for one person to pick up holds for other people in their family.  You can override the stop to allow the checkout to the pickup patron, but there is no easy way to clear or cancel the family member's hold.  It automatically becomes open again and must be deleted separately by staff.

Be able to clear checkin & checkout popup alerts & notifications with the enter key

17

I know the requirement to click, tab or use a control or alt key function to clear popups is by design, to prevent common errors.  However, it really slows down the checkin & checkout process, especially when one is checking in bucket after bucket of holds & transits.

Libraries should be able to turn this "protection feature" on or off.

Be able to import item templates without having to say ok for each one, or be able to import new and updated templates only.

9

When you import templates, it asks for each existing template if you want to overwrite it.  It would be great if I could say yes to all of them at once.  Or if I could import only new & updated templates so it would only ask me about the updated ones.

Ability to create and edit Item Templates without having to be in an actual item record

10

There has been some work on this and item templates will soon be available through Admin < Local Admin < Item Attribute Editor. However, you will only be able to add copy-level data to these templates. This enhancement is to allow classification scheme and call number affixes to be added to a template here too.
