    Why does a collection facet returns preferred record from a different collection?


    This is because it is grouped with the filtered collection and has higher ranking.



    We understand that this behavior can lead to confusion, if the record displayed in the result list is not from the collection chosen in the collection facet.
    However, after careful consideration, we have decided not to change this behavior in Primo Central. The reason is that this behavior is overall consistent with the way Primo performs grouping and calculates the preferred record in a group.

    We believe that changing this behavior will lead to further confusion, especially because searches are performed on the entire data from all records and not just one.
