To configure receiving departmental validations, you must have the following role:
- Acquisitions Administrator
- General System Administrator
You can activate validation checks for barcodes and brief bibliographic records of physical items. These checks are processed when a user exits the Received Items List. When activated, a dialog box validation warning message is displayed in Alma if a barcode is missing or a record is brief. See Receiving Physical Material. (For more information regarding brief records, see Working with Brief Record Levels.)
You activate receiving department validation checks on the Receiving Department Validations mapping table page (Acquisitions > Acquisitions Configuration > Configuration Menu > General > Receiving Department Validations). For more information on mapping tables, see Mapping Tables.
