    Resource Management - March 2017 Enhancements

    Authority Headings Display Options

    Authority headings display results for preferred/nonpreferred records (using F3) can be expanded with new configurable options to provide greater detail. In cases where the standard authority headings results display a limited amount of information, it can be difficult to determine which record to select when more than one record appears with the same information in the authority headings results list. With this new capability, more detail can be displayed, eliminating the need to click View for multiple headings records in order to make the correct choice/selection. See Working with Authority Headings Rules for more information.
