:22Allow user to generate requests from Order line


  • If you are creating a request from an order, are there situations where it's actually very important that it's the specific item that your ordering going to the user? 
    • Martina: For her, not usually
    • Sara:  For 5 colleges: If a prof wants it, and they don't want to take another library's copy for the whole semester. 
    • From Kristin Martin to Everyone 12:25 PM
      Like a patron request?
      Are you trying to distinguish between item-level requests and title-level requests?
    • From Ann-Marie Breaux to Everyone 12:30 PM
      Title level holds are coming. Was not released in Lotus, but I believe it's being released in MG
    • From Sara C  to Everyone 12:36 PM
      Yes, both options would be great! 
    • From Lloyd (Marmot Library Network) to Everyone 12:37 PM
      If I had to pick one, title level first.
    • From Kristin Martin to Everyone 12:37 PM
      But what happens if it's the only item?
  • Do you ever have multiple requesters for a particular order?
    • Martina: From her experience, it happens, but not often
    • Dung Lan: Happens occasionally
    • From Lisa Smith to Everyone 12:47 PM
      Yes, we sometimes have multiple notifies for a single order; it doesn't happen often.
  • What we are talking about here is a hold request.. ? Just want to confirm that is the type of request. No other type would be wanted when placing a request,  
    • Ann-Marie: Holds are the only one that is applicable 
    • Holds, Pages, and recall are the only three types of requests
    • Dung- Lan: Sometimes the requester wants to be notified it's available but do not want it held. 
    • From Sara C  to Everyone 01:00 PM
      I know Smith does this now, and we would like do it as well ...
  • Dennis: 
    • Types of requests, only concerned with hold
    • If we are going to have a default, it will be a title level request with the user having the ability that they want it put on hold. Ability to say the particular item being ordered is to be held for a specific person/use. 
    • Do not need a request to have the ability to have multiple requesters. 
    • Comment on wiki page or slack
    • From Dennis Bridges to Everyone 01:04 PM
      Allow User to generate requests from Order line 
    • Dennis will be away Friday
    • Ann-Marie: Want me to start a conversation about importing MARC items?
    • Dennis: Yes
