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


    How to control whether "Currently at" choice is imposed upon 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. >Confirguation >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 specify their physical location.
    Otherwise, the system will automatically set the physical location to the user’s last specified location.
