Sorting the On Shelf Pull List
Sorting Circulation Policies

This feature enables you to sort display columns so that you can find easily the information that you need on a screen that contains multiple columns. You can sort display columns on any screen that is built on a grid, such as the Check In screen or the On Shelf Pull List.

You can also sort the columns on the following Administration screens: Circulation Policies, Hold Policies, Circulation Limit Sets, Barcode Completion, Acquisitions User Request List, and Vandelay Import Errors.

You can sort items in an ascending or descending order, and you can prioritize the order in which columns will sort. The following use cases illustrate how to sort items within the Circulation and Administration interfaces.

  4. The next column that you want to sort is the column, Call Number. Right click the column header, Call Number.
  5. Click Sort Next (Ascending).

If you wanted to sort more columns, you could continue the process by clicking Sort Next for any subsequent columns.
