Goal: WeCat demo - Searching functions
|WeCat demo live|
Screenshots of functions were added to Attachments in this wiki.
Scan function allows the user to browse the index.
Managing user views can be done using the drop-down menu at the top right corner. There are up to 16 available for configuration. One can be set as a default. User accounts determine which view is seen by the user. This allows for some modifications in a local view, but changes do not affect the master record.
Primary Indexes (Title, Name, Subject, etc.) are the most used indexes. Within these there can be an additional subdivision using the Secondary Index.
Boolean searches can be performed in the Search field.
There is a "Collection" function in MARCCat that is used for purposes similar to what the MM group of FOLIO is discussing including a "Package" function for.
There are many additional functions, some that may not be needed in FOLIO:
Charlotte asked if we could have a trial version of WeCat available to the group. Tiziana will make available a test installation.
Laura asked for clarification on the user views feature. (The details are now included in the notes above)
Lisa asked if results lists can be exported into a .csv file. They cannot right now. This could be covered by their Reports function, however.
Planning of the work
- Tiziana Possemato/Annalisa Di Sabato: send out the first document showing the next feature will be discussed (Searching module in WeCat)
- Tiziana Possemato will make a test installation of WeCat available for the group
