This is not currently in our near term development focus so it has been moved to the longer term backlog while we focus on items in the development focus.
Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.
Hi, this was put in the backlog in 2015, just wondering where we stand with this now please Talis?
This would be really useful! To be honest I'm surprised we can't filter by types of alerts as there are some that do not need checking sometimes.
With New List Edit the Delete warning is already much stronger, however, this specific request has come up in feedback and we plan to address this with clearer messaging about the impact on Digitisations. This is not currently scheduled but we will update as this moves to the top of our priorities.

This is a great idea and should be something Talis should implement as soon as possible. Library notes are useful 'notes for library staff' for tracking updates to a bookmark for a range of issues, including:
a) purchasing of items - we add library notes to say when and what has been ordered. Such as what licence an eBook is, or whether there print copies on order and as such, that is why the bookmark is not linked to an item in the catalogue. The review notes are handy, but review notes are accessible to view unless you are in the review screen, which is not something we always are. Library notes also appear on a range of reports which can be useful - review comments are not.
b) Library notes can be used as a way of tracking the progress of an item, for example if it is not yet published, or if it is on order for digitisations.
As part of the acquisitions process we'd add a library note to the bookmark, and it would be great if this was possible from the review screen so reduces the need to edit the list, find the bookmark and then change the note.
There are also good reasons to change the student note when ordering new stock (or not), for example stating that both eBook and prints are available, or that the item is not held by the library and forwarding them to inter-library requests.
We should also be able to change the importance of items from the review screen.
Basically, you should be able to edit a bookmark in every way from the review screen without having to manually go to the list, edit the list and edit the relevant field there. Users should not have to keep switching between two interfaces to achieve this. You can already edit the meta-data from the review screen, and presumably that would have been an even greater ask than this.
