Q

Is there a way to catagorize My Recent Returns either alphabetically by author or title?

Answer

Thanks for asking! Unfortunately, I found the following in the "More Info" section of my own 'Recently Returned' shelf: 

  • If your Recently Returned page has more than 100 titles, the sorting options do not appear, and the list will be sorted chronologically, with the most recently returned title first.

I know I'm not a typical library user, but I think I cracked 100 titles within a month of activating Recently Returned. If the same is true for you, I'm afraid that only the default chronological sort is available. If I get a chance to suggest a change to that as an interface enhancement, I certainly will. 

You could, hypothetically, use the 'printable view' of your list and copy them over to an Excel document or similar spreadsheet 50  titles at a time - but I won't even pretend to call that a reasonable replacement for a built-in sort function. 

Thanks for contacting us, and sorry for the inconvenience! If there's a particular title you're trying to find again we may be able to help you run it down another way. Feel free to email back or call 402-444-4800 with further questions.
