Performance when changing the bib record linked to an order.
Some changes have been made to speed up searching Base when looking for a bibliographic record to update an order. Please note this feature requires LDS 2.9.16.
Search Base using Cat. Auto Search Order – In Search Base the system will now only search the databases specified in Configure Alto> Parameter Management> Rules> Bibliographic Search Order> Cat. Auto Search Order. If no databases are specified, then the system will search all the Base databases. Please note this fix requires LDS 2.9.14.
Issuing reserved items to a specific date – If a specific due date is set in the parameters for reserved items, the system will now display the confirm button allowing the item to be issued to that date. Please note this fix requires LDS 2.9.16.
Transit message in return – Now as an item is returned the system will show the spinner to ensure all responses from the LDS are collected. You will be able to navigate away if need be, via the menu.
Release to the live service
This version of Soprano is expected to be released to the live service on Thursday 11th March 2021.
