The joint enhancement team of the ELUNA and IGeLU Primo Working Groups has discussed the results with ExLibris Product Management, who assigned complexity points to the 20 top-voted results.
For each annual Primo NERS round, the community is allocated enhancements worth 100 complexity points.
We have decided that a second round of voting is required to determine this year’s most popular enhancement requests. The complexity score of each request is indicated in the NERS description.
This final round of voting will run from August 13 through August 31, 2020.
Each member organisation should designate someone to vote using NERS and will need to use their IGeLU organisation ID and password (NERS login)
Each member organisation has 100 voting points which can be distributed as you wish between the enhancements. You are welcome to vote in the 2nd round even if you missed the first one.
You will find that the ballot consists of 13 entries. 7 of the 20 top-voted requests have been removed from voting, either because the feature is already supported or planned, or because the request was rejected by Ex Libris Product Management. Details are below:
|Request ID||Title||Votes, round 1||Reason for removal|
|6723||Add print journal holdings to Primo holdings-file||2671||This request was removed from this year’s ballot due to its size, cross-product requirements, and overlap with the implementation of CDI across the Primo customer base. We encourage the requestor to resubmit this request next year, when any issues related to CDI rollout will have been resolved.|
|6696||DOI searching||1899||This request has been removed from the ballot because it is currently supported, with CDI containing CrossRef as a data source. Users can choose to expand “Beyond my collection” to search for DOIs not found in a default filtered search. This will retrieve the article, and Alma General Electronic Services can be set up to direct users to ILL, and auto-populate the form, if no full-text is available.|
|6729||Prevent Autocomplete-suggestions from non-activated sources in PCI/CDI||1739||This request has been removed from this year’s ballot due to cross-product requirements and overlap with the implementation of CDI across the Primo customer base. We encourage the requestor to resubmit this request next year, when any issues related to CDI rollout will have been resolved.|
|6680||Missing Form Label for Searchbox & Missing Search Button Label||1099||This request has been removed from the ballot, as resolved in the August 2020 Primo Release.|
|6719||Email Saved Search||931||This request has been removed from the ballot, as the November 2020 Primo release will include a “Share” option which fulfills this use case.|
|6583||FRBR group static preferred record presentation||513||This request has been removed from the ballot due to its size and complexity. The request would require major re-development of FRBR in both Primo and Primo VE. Note: there is a bug for Alma/Primo customers where Alma-E records are not being considered against Online Availability configuration during the preferred record evaluation. This will be resolved in an upcoming release.|
|6711||Access to full search logs in Primo Analytics||510||This request has been removed from the ballot as it is not possible within the current Primo infrastructure.|
As always, the Primo NERS voting is for both deployment models: Primo VE and Primo (with a Back Office).
