    New Icon for List item with Comments

    Now an icon will appear on items in lists that have comment activity. This allows for at-a-glance awareness that an item has conversation and may be of particular interest.

    Default Settings for Interested User

    December 2021 Rialto NGS-5577, 5595

    When adding a interested user to a cart item, staff can now save additional clicks as the user will be notified by default. The type of notification is based on the format of the item:

    • for electronic items, the "Notify when available" option is applied.
    • For physical items, the "Notify when received" is applied. 
    • For physical items, the "Place on hold" can be applied as well, if needed.

    This is possible only when an email address is available for the interested user. When it is not available, the interested user is added without the notification option.

    In the collapsed view in the Details pane, the icons for the selected notification types appear only when they are selected. When the notification type is not selected, the icon does not appear.

    "Order Date" Reflects the PO Line Creation Date

    December 2021 Rialto NGS-4325

    In the Order History page, the "Order Date" now displays the creation date of the PO Line (the date when the order was submitted to ProQuest) instead of the date when the order was first added to the cart. In addition, dates were added after the actions Selected, Approved, Rejected.

    Note that if you did the action, only the date when it was performed is displayed, without the user badge.

    This action takes places only on orders assigned to the user. Orders assigned to other users cannot be unassigned.
