Monday Minutes Batch Functionality in the Staff Search

In this week's Monday Minutes, Kelly and Jessie discuss a new feature from 20.05. This enhancement adds three new options to the staff interface catalog search results for users with cataloging permissions to perform batch edit, batch delete , and merges. The choices are found in an "Edit" menu which is disabled by default. Checking any boxes in the search results table enables the button.

Staff permissions

Staff members would need the following permissions to perform batch edit and deletion of records.

Edit catalog (Modify bibliographic/holdings data) (editcatalogue)

  • Edit catalog (Modify bibliographic/holdings data)(edit_catalogue)

Use all tools (expand for granular tools permissions) (tools)

  • Perform batch deletion of records (bibliographic or authority) (records_batchdel)
  • Perform batch modification of records (biblios or authorities) (records_batchmod)
