Viewing all locations

Viewing all locations

I would like to propose that objects from locations other than the Current Location are visible in the locations module.

At the moment the Objects tab in the Locations module only displays objects that have that particular location as their Current Location.

Would other users find it useful for there to be the facility to have three sets of objects tabs, one for each type of location - permanent, temporary and current? I would expect that some users might choose not to display all three.

Of course, you can look up other locations by attachment but the above facility would make the information on what was in a particular location more readily accessible.

Absolutely. I too am very keen to see this facility.

I would prefer to see permanent, temporary and exhibit. However, the point is that it should be possible to see all the location types. This makes collections management planning much easier -- not just where the object *is*, but where we expect it to be when it comes off exhibit.

Re: Viewing all locations

Hello Julian and JP,

I have added the requested tabs to the EMu 3.2.02 release. There are now three "Objects" tabs in the Locations Module. They are:

- Objects - objects with current location
- Objects (Perm) - objects with permanent location
- Objects (Temp) - objects with temporary location

Note these tabs will only be shown if your catalogue supports the required attachment (that is, your catalogue has a field for Current, Permanent and Temporary Location).

Regards

bern.
