How can I prevent the “Phone number” field from being mandatory in the Alma user and patron record? Every time I save a user and patron, if I do not have the phone number present I get a message “The field Telephone 1 is mandatory”. We do not use this field in our library and therefore we want to make this field optional.
Mandatory fields for user registration and Alma user management are set in Alma > User Management > Configuration Menu > Mandatory Fields > by type of user record.
For more information, see the Mandatory Fields section in User Management Activities.
