If I search for a resource under Manage Top Containers, it compiles all of the Top Containers for the Resource... but I have no idea how it is organized. To increase usability, I would it to default load sorting the Top Containers by numerically by indicator. I believe most users would want this as well and would reduce one extra step and resulting confusion about this.
There are ways to sort alphanumerically and not have it line up as you described I believe the rationale is, the code would look at the string and break it out into chunks and evaluate from there. So if you have an indicator $$$##$$###, it will look at the first part and recognize it as a string and sort, then it will look at the next part because now it is a number and sort accordingly and so on. There is also a way to tell the system to order numbers even without leading zeros…I am not a coder so I do not know how to code that but I have seen it work. I know that doesn’t give you anything to work with but I wanted to put it out there.
Hi and , the Usability subteam reviewed this and we agree that it would be a useful feature. From the comment history on this ticket, it looks as though this work has already been set into motion. How would you recommend proceeding- would routing to Development Prioritization be necessary at this point? Thanks!
My take, , is since it seems Harvard is working on some improvements in this area and are aware of/active on this ticket, it could likely skip Dev Pri at this time (though might disagree!). That said, if this doesn’t get resolved in a way desired by the Usability subteam, it may end up closed/incomplete and needing to cycle back through the prioritization process for additional work. At least that seems logical to me?
Yes, we have this fixed in our test system and we’ll be ready to pass it-- along with a number of other changes, to Lyrasis for review in roughly a month. We have a little video demo, but haven’t figured out where to put it to share it.
Hi , would you be able to give a quick update on how this work is going? Thanks!
