Column picker improvements

14

Here are two column picker improvement ideas. (I'm happy to split these into posts if that is more appropriate).

1. The column picker should remain on screen until dismissed. Currently the column picker closes whenever a column is added or removed from the selection. Because adding or removing multiple columns is so common the user should be allowed to open the column picker a single time and add or remove any number of columns. The column picker could then be dismissed by clicking outside of the column picker or by clicked an "x" or other appropriate close button.

Allow users to sort holdings by any column

1

The user should be able to sort holdings, a-z or z-a, based on the content of any column.

This is particularly motivated by the fact that sometimes it is best to sort by call number, sometimes by part, and sometimes by status, but I see no reason to restrict the ability to certain columns.

Allow staff running reports to select which columns appear

Ultimately what we would like to be able to do is create a report template that had a flag like modifiable when turned on would allow staff running a report to choose to include or remove columns from the report.  For instance we have a title list report that inlcudes: author, title, publisher, call number, circ modifier, and shelving location.  One library runs the report and does not want the circ modifier to appear in the list.   They have the option to run the report without the circ modifier appearing.
