Bug fixes

Acquisitions type is correct when requesting items via Tipasa

The Acquisitions Type is being set correctly when requesting items via Tipasa. Previously, when creating purchase requests in Acquisitions from Tipasa, the system would set the Acquisitions Type to Subscription, even if the item was a One-Time purchase. This required staff to change this manually for all purchase requests. Now, when creating purchase requests via Tipasa, the items are created with the proper Acquisitions Type based on the Material Format of the item.

Parent fund displaying in Analytics reports

The parent fund of all funds are properly displaying now in your Analytics reports.  Previously, some reports were omitting the parent fund for some libraries. This data was re-added to Acquisitions and is now in Analytics as well.
