Day 2 Part 1
Alma analytics is inconsistent when it comes to producing reports that mix items with a temporary location and items with no temporary location. Because of this you have to force a temporary location onto any LAB review related items that have no temporary location. Doing this makes the 'Part Moved' reports accurate.
Note: Check out the "Helpful Tips" page of this Libguide if you
run into data issues such as numbers looking goofy when
you open the file in Excel.
i. Delete the second column
ii. Make sure the first line of the file is "Item ID"
iii. Scroll down to find the number of rows in file
(subtract one for the header name field)
iv. Save the file with the name LR_NULL_yyyy-mm-dd.txt
v. Note how many items there are in the set.
4. In Alma, create an itemized set of items from the text file.
iv. Make certain that the number of members in the group matches the number of items you noted from step 3v.
5. Combine sets to identify only those LR_NULL_yyyy-mm-dd
items with a blank temporary location:
i. Find the new LR_NULL_yyyy-mm-dd set in
ii. Click the action button and choose Combine sets
iii. Name the set "LR_NULL_yyyy-mm-dd - combined - ALL_NullTemporaryLocation"
With: ALL_NullTemporaryLocation(DO NOT DELETE)
7. Once notified that the job is complete, run the Change physical items job on the set again:
Don’t try to combine these two steps. Alma doesn’t combine things well.
These updates will not be available in Analytics until the next day.
