Priorities for Next Release

  • The priorities is about what was planned and the progress for the Sprint

    • Going through YouTrack and organizing backlog

    • Working on development in an order that derives the most value for everyone

    • 200 more tickets to review

    • Finish organizing the On Deck board that the R & D Team uses to decide what to develop next & configuration priorities

      • Goal was to do archive cleanup tasks from requests made from EVLD and Fort Lewis

        • 90% done with this goal

      • Goal to finish the Three Wire Winter in the archive for Bud Werner

        • The goal is done

      • Discovery Partner, Sante Fe, is on target to launch on 3/29

      • Loveland data migration is done

      • Red Book in the archive had a bug that was preventing the objects from displaying properly

        • The bug is fixed, and a meeting is setup to work on the specifications

      • Priority for upcoming Sprint is to share work between libraries in the archive

        • Members will be able to see archive projects from other libraries

        • Even if you are not an archive member, if you are a Marmot Member you can turn on the archives.

      • Anne Arundel is our next Discovery Partner.  The kickoff and initial meetings are planned for now. They are the Q2 library

      • Arlington Library App will be worked on for the next Sprint.

    • Pika roadmap available here

      • The permissions should be correct to access the Pika roadmap

      • The columns on the right are things that are being worked on or finished

      • There are columns for the current release and next release

      • The columns further to the left will have less information, and could change in priority

      • Good idea to do a catch-up on sideloading and bugs

Topic for Discussion – Display of hold information for titles with multiple editions

  • Example: Maui Revealed

    • In this example, it shows there are 9 copies of the item and 5 holds

    • Unless you click to see the Show Editions  button, you cannot see that there is actually 1 item with 5 holds

    • This information is misleading to patrons

    • Question: Do we remove the entire message, or just the part with the number of copies?

    • There was no clear answer to this question, so a poll was sent to the Discovery email.
