    Intota: My Intota

    • Product: Intota

    What type of information can I expect to see in the My Intota area of Intota?

    My Intota provides an easy starting point for doing your everyday work. From My Intota, you can quickly:

    • See all your library's time-sensitive notifications and tasks, and access associated activities.

    • View your tracked databases and associated activities, and filter your resources in multiple ways to give you the best view for the task you are working on.

    My Intota

    In addition to My Intota being accessible directly from the home page, it is also available within the top left Resources menu, making My Intota easily accessible wherever you are in Intota.

    The Intota home page itself provides a view of notifications and tasks, however the page is limited to displaying up to 3 items in each section. Use the View All link at the top of the My Intota section to view all notifications and tasks.

    The rest of this document provides details about working within My Intota:

    Activities Tab

    Use the Activities screen to view all notifications and alerts, along with associated actions:

    Activities tab

    By default all your notifications are displayed. Use the Type column filter (highlighted above) to display notifications of a particular type. Select All Types to display all notifications an alerts.

    The first column on the left, Date, is the date Intota generated the notification. By default the oldest items display at the top, click the arrow icon to sort from newest to oldest.

    The Type column identifies the kind of notification or alert. These can be:

    • Resource Renewals

    • Purchase Renewals

    • Renewal Decision Dates

    • License Renewals

    • Upload alerts regarding recent batch activity for:

    • Automated Holdings updates

    • Knowledgebase Notifications

    • Termination Notifications

    • The Resource column displays the relevant provider/database/holding, click on the resource to go to its details page in Intota.

    • Due Date is when the notification expires. You will see dates that span 45 days (from 30 days prior to the Due Date, up to 15 days after the Due Date if action has not yet been taken). Once action is taken, a notification or alert no longer displays.

    • The Actions column displays the relevant step to take in Intota, click on the link to go to the appropriate page in Intota.

    • The right side Export (CSV) link lets you export in CSV (comma separated value) format.

    My Intota displays notifications and alerts based on your Intota account permissions. For example if your Intota permissions are set up with access to licensing tools, but your permissions do not include managing your holdings information in Intota, My Intota will display relevant items related to licenses, and My Intota will hide upload alerts.

    Databases Tab

    Use the Databases tab for quick access to all your subscribed resources and associated activities such as viewing titles and making payments:

    Databases tab

    By default all your resources are displayed. Use the various column filters (highlighted above) to display only those resources relevant to the work you want to accomplish.
