    Alerts on the Metadata Editor

    Translatable
    When you open a record to edit it, Alma checks the record for a variety of characteristics such as missing information, invalid information, duplicate records, and so forth. If an issue is found, it is presented as an alert.

    You can also view the record issues by selecting the editor split mode icon to display the alert details in a pane next to the record.

    Note that when you have two records open in split mode and then select to view the alert details in split mode, the non-focused record collapses vertically to the left or right (depending on which record is the focused record), to allow for the Alert details to appear in the right pane. In the following example, the record on the left is focused, so the record on the right collapsed vertically .

    In the following example, the record on the left (not focused) collapsed vertically to the left, and the focused record that was previously on the right shifted to the left to allow the Alert details to appear in the right pane.
