    "Request a different issue" - how to change the label of this type of request?

    • Product: Alma




    Regarding request named: "Request Options: Request a different issue", showing in the Primo Get It tab at the top of the frame -- is it possible to change the default wording for this link?



    The Request a different issue link will appear in Primo Get It if the item has a description or the resource holding has a summary holdings field. This will enable requesting items that may have not been cataloged. 

    The label "Request a different issue" can be changed in Alma, from: Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > Labels. The label is called: c.uresolver.getit2.request_different. 

    The change is immediate (just refresh the search result in Primo).
