New features and enhancements
Local Holdings Record (LHR) MARC 21 editor
For LHR 877 and 878 fields, you can now choose from a dropdown menu for subfield $I (Temporary Location)
When entering data into 877 or 878 fields in the LHR MARC 21 editor, you can now select from a dropdown menu for Temporary Location subfield $I. Previously, you needed to type the Temporary Location data into the subfield $I.
TCP/IP record export
FOLIO libraries only: Some user credential or API key configurations in FOLIO resulted in failed TCP/IP record exports from WorldShare Record Manager
Depending on how your FOLIO administrator specified your TCP/IP record export/import settings, WorldShare Record Manager may have either supplied a success message when the record did not successfully export or the TCP/IP export action would hang. Now, the TCP/IP record exports to FOLIO correctly function.
Dropdown in Enumeration/Chronology column on a Label Print List is limited to 10 selections
When selecting entries under the enumeration/chronology dropdown on a Label Print List, you could only select up to 10 entries at a time. Now, you can add more than 10 for label printing.
Record Work Lists
Preview Record(s) after Edit Action Applied for LBD and LHR entries in a work list produces an error
In an LBD or LHR record work list using a barcode match script, for a given list entry when selecting View --> Prev Record(s) after Edit Action Applied, an error window would appear. Now you are able to see the preview successfully.
