New Resource Sharing Task Lists  

The Resource Sharing task lists (borrower and lender) are being redesigned and implemented with new layout capabilities. This will greatly improve the efficiency of resource sharing request handling on both the borrower and the lender side for all types of requests. The redesign is done with a  number of concepts in mind, which will be reviewed in this session :

  • Right pane work area that allows inline editing of the in focus request
  • Multiple facet selection
  • Inline handling of note and patron queries
  • Easier search across requests in multiple activity statuses and across assignee responsibilities
  • Sliding panel enables full work on requests without losing the requests list context
