New features and enhancements
Report Designer time out extension
The time out in Report Designer has been extended from 10 minutes to 20 minutes. This will allow users more time to author queries and save them to their repository without being timed out of their session too quickly.
WorldShare Reports and Report Designer interfaces and standard and custom reports are now available in French.
The user will select Français in the WorldShare interface:
The list of reports in WorldShare will be translated, as will report headers, criteria, and columns. When the user navigates to Report Launch Pad to query a universe, field names and definitions will be translated to the French language.
Support for non-Latin bibliographic data
Effective 21 June 2018, Non-Latin bibliographic data stored in WorldCat 880 fields will display in Cataloging Reports and Reports created in Report Designer using the Cataloging universe or LHR Item Detail universe. Prior to this release, bibliographic fields containing multibyte characters in non-Latin scripts would result in <>. appearing in reports.
Acquisitions - Custom Order and Invoice fields
The Acquisitions Universe now contains objects for Order Item and Invoice Item custom fields. Order Items and Invoice Items each contain 20 Custom Field Label objects and 20 Custom Field Value objects to utilize in reporting.
Please see Custom fields for more details on the usage of custom fields in Acquisitions.
Each Field Name corresponds with an Analytics Field ID. The Field Name will appear in the Item Custom Field Label for the corresponding Analytics Field ID.
Option names will appear in the Custom Field Value object of the corresponding Analytics Field ID.
Circulation Item Inventory Report - Empty values
After this release, zero-date or empty fields in the Circulation Item Inventories file, previously represented by a 0001-01-01 date or “N/A”, will now be empty strings. Additionally, all values containing a pipe “|” character will be escaped to “^” to maintain the pipe “|” delimiter for the file.
Acquisitions staff and vendor notes on renewed subscription items
When running a report in the Acquisitions universe the Staff Order Item and Vendor Order Item notes fields will now populate for all renewed subscription items if “This order item and all prior and subsequent renewals” is selected. Prior to the release, the Staff Order Item and Vendor Order Item notes fields were only populated on one subscription item for subscription item renewals.
