Presentation Topic Description

In order to collect information about user perceptions regarding Primo load time, I developed a javascript widget to embed into the Primo interface that allows users to report whether or not they felt the Primo results page loaded fast enough. This presentation will discuss how I developed the widget using the custom.js and custom1.css files that are loaded into the Manage Customization Package in Alma, and will share the various reports and features that are a part of the data collection website I developed to collect user reported information using URL parameters. This presentation will also show how I identified specific Primo time variables to collect, and demonstrate to the audience how they can select their own variables to collect for their own reporting purposes.
