- As a circulation staff I want to have easy access to order information relevant for any given search in Inventory.
When I find what I'm looking for - the given patron request - then I want to have easy access coming from the Inventory, item record and do not want to repeat my search in another app, e.g. the the Order app..
- Where searching criteria is different seeing information from acquisitions in inventory may allow you to find acq information more efficiently than you could by searching orders directly.
- Understanding the date ordered is a useful reference point for motivating a user to actually go beyond what is displayed and investigate what might be happening with the order. In combination with other data it could be a quick flag that someone needs to follow up on it.
|Include column for POL Receipt Status|
Include column for Acquisition unit |Generally there are other data points at the item level that clearly communicate which group is responsible for an item. Location, holding etc.|
I may have items on the same instance ordered through different vendors
Investigating whether this was a firm order or a standing order
|Where multiple copies are concerned, it will be useful to know which item maps to which order number|
|When viewing the item it would be helpful to see when something has been received. Specifically that item not the POL in general. This also implies whether it is expected or not. |
|Helpful to see Subscription Y/N so that user knows whether an ongoing order is a standing order vs. subscription. This may change the way they follow up on the order.|
|Provide hyperlink to the receiving history||To make it easier to access receiving information and confirm what other "Pieces" have been received. Prevent the need for users to go and run a separate search in the receiving app|
