    January 2023 Release

    Remove Cancel Action from Order History for Available Ebooks

    January 2023 Rialto NGS-8324

    Prior to the January release, Ebook cancellations for available Ebooks were allowed, with the Cancel action displayed in the window for a brief period or until the user refreshed the page. If the page wasn't refreshed when the Cancel action was momentarily present, their cancellation request was typically rejected as the order was already processed. Now, the Cancel action has been removed from the Order History page for Ebooks that are currently available. No changes occur for the Cancel action for print books, or Ebooks that are not yet published.

    Notification for Rejected Cancel Order Requests

    January 2023 Rialto NGS-8316

    Rialto users now have the option to be notified when a Cancel Order request is rejected. By default, the pop-up is enabled for all users that have permissions to cancel orders. To configure the settings to receive an email as well, or to turn off the pop-up, select "market" from the bell icon in the upper navigation: 


    Cancellation Rejected from the Notifications customization screen. 

    For more information on notifications in Rialto see User Notifications. 

    Rialto Configuration Page

    January 2023 Rialto NGS-6731

    Rialto administrators can now access a configuration page to customize Rialto features and staff display to suit their policies and needs. The configuration page can be accessed through: Configuration > Market.  From here, four options are present:

    • Other Settings
    • Cart Routing
    • Rialto Vendor Codes
    • Purchase Request Form


    Configuration > Market

    Other Settings brings up a mapping table, where you can configure a number of settings that will impact your staff's experiece in Rialto.

    Cart Routing from here you can define the values that will display to staff under the "Cart Routing" field in the cart, orders awaiting approval page, and order history. If not previously enabled, once a value is created and saved the "Cart Routing" option will appear to your users. 

    Rialto Vendor Codes from here you can map Rialto orders to another specific vendor or account code in Alma.

    Purchase Request Form from here you can define the settings for a purchase request web form that can be embedded in your institution's pages. This web form allows for unauthenticated users to generate and submit purchase requests. 

    See Configuring Rialto Settings for more details. 

    Show/Hide Suppressed Holdings

    January 2023 Rialto

    By default, Rialto is configured to show holdings that are suppressed.  Additionally, titles with suppressed holdings can be excluded from queries used in Title Alerts, Selection Plans, etc.  Some libraries choose to suppress--rather than delete--holdings that are no longer available.  For these libraries, suppressed holdings should not display in Rialto or be factored into queries.

    Rialto can be configured to either hide suppressed holdings from the holdings view and not consider them in holdings queries. This configuration can be accessed by administrators from the new configuration page, under the Other Settings table. 

    Duplicate Title Alerts

    Rialto Administrators and Super Selectors can now duplicate title alerts so that they do not have to recreate a complicated query. Users who can create and manage title alerts have a new action to duplicate them. A duplicated title alert creates a copy with the same query, cart fields, and all other parameters, excluding an applied interested users. The duplicated title alert is named "Copy of [original title alert name]" until users rename the title alert.

    Display Treatment Date in Offer Details

    January 2023 Rialto NGS-7207

    Rialto users can now view the "treatment date" (when the New Titles team has completed record enhancement) in the offer details so that when creating feeds or searching by "Treated X Weeks Ago", they can see why a resource was retrieved. A new field "Treatment Date" in the Details section of Offer Details is displayed.

    New Platforms Available with the New Invoicing System

    January 2023 Rialto

    Over the last few months, we have been rolling out the new ordering and invoicing solution for Rialto customers. Many of you have already moved to the new invoices and the rest will move soon. For those of you already live, the following new platforms will be enabled in mid January. Your key Rialto contacts will receive an email with the specific date for your institution. The platforms are:

    • EBSCO (if available in your region)
    • JSTOR
    • Bloomsbury

    No action is required to enable this update. The listed platforms will be activated automatically based on your invoicing configuration. If your configuration combines platforms, these will now be included in your existing invoices. If you separate invoicing by platforms, you will now receive an invoice for each platform using the new invoice format.
