    Force choice of "Currently at" a desk or department - how to?


    Can Alma be configured to display menu "Please choose your current desk/department" that will direct users to select a location at login (i.e. whether to enforce the operator to decide which Circulation Desk or Acquisition Department to be connected to when connecting to Alma)?


    This is set up in:

    1. Alma Configuration > General > General Configuration > Other Settings
    2. Parameter > force_location_selection_on_login

    Additional Information

    If set to "true" the system will open a dialog box during logon, requiring staff users to select a location immediately after logging in.
    If set to "false" the system will automatically set the physical location to the user’s last specified location.
