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 ...
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.
