Search Groupings & Results Views

New Search Grouping Options are available in Illume (SHAREit V6) to allow for Clustered (matches on just Author & Title), Merged (matches on Author, Title, Publisher & Date) & No Grouping (no matching or merging records) search result views.

These can be used in combination with the Gallery & List Results Views to customise your Staff & Patron search results.

Want a Staff view that's closest to SHAREit V5? Try setting your Staff defaults to "No Grouping" and "List". Check-out the different options available below:
