Item Status Requirements Discussion (Cross-SIG)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

. What is the current thinking around item status (Emma presents some use cases and options)
. What should be considered when deciding whether something should be or impact an item status vs some other item flag or property? What are the functional implications we should take into account?
. What workflows haven't we discussed still that may impact item status?
. How should item status(es) display in inventory, codex etc.
. Prioritize and discuss remaining workflows and decide how best to handle

. Review status requirements
. Differentiate status (e.g., available), flag (e.g., damaged), and dynamically computed information (e.g., overdue) - feasible?
. Test models against use cases & workflows for acquisitions, lost items, in-transit items
. Test models against the idea of custom statuses - what challenges do each present?

. Goal: have model to recommend to SIGs, understand model's impact on current designs, have heuristics to draw on in the future for what should be a status
