To be clear, nobody is talking about getting rid of Holdings Maintenance. It has a new name - holdings view - and there have been some changes in the display, some of which are improvements and other changes that are causing problems, some of which are significant. But I haven't heard anyone suggest getting rid of it.

All –

  From a ‘end user’ / power user standpoint (and the admin) PLEASE PLEASE don’t get rid of the Holdings Maintenance view / screen / option!!    Oh my.   We use that for so many things.   It just helps visually to know where a volume is, if it is labeled correctly, if it has copies assigned, and are there others in the system.

PLEASE keep the Holdings Maintenance.  It is one of the BEST things in Evergreen.

    (The other BEST thing ever is the Item Status Display.   NEVER get rid of that either!)

I just had this reported to me, and it does seem to be problematic. Many of our libraries use Holdings Maintenance in XUL as the first step in adding volumes and copies. This works out well because, even if a given library system has no volumes or copies under a given title, the org unit tree for that system appears in Holdings Maintenance and you can easily add volumes / copies to a specific branch. This tree does not appear in the Web Client so adding volumes to a branch requires several more steps as a user is forced to select the branch org unit at several junctures.  Am I missing something? Has anyone else noticed this?
