The marc modification templates have no way of checking or changing indicator values. This seems like a pretty big oversight.
As an enhancement to Koha's Marc Modification Template, it would be extremely helpful to include indicators as part of this process. A lot of libraries would like an easy way to remove their 7 indicators in 650 tags.
+1, would love to see this
This would be such a great time saver. Currently we have to create a report to capture the correct bibs, export them, update and import them back in. It would be great to be able to do it in Koha instead.
This is an oversight I'd like to see change. Indicators are a part of the MARC field afterall.
This would be SO helpful!! There hasn't yet been one instance that I've been able to try using the MARC modification templates because every way they'd be helpful for us involves essential information from the indicators, changes to the indicators, etc.
Are you working on this one Hayley? Would be lovely to see some code.
I am in the process of trying to get client sign off on some work that'd been done in this area.
Anyone feel free to pick it up in the meantime if you have some time!
If the field we are adding has indicators that are significant, this would enable user to do this action in Koha. Without it, I would need to use MarcEdit to change the indicators, so I might as well use it to add the field at the same time. If we can do this in Koha rather than outside of Koha, it would vastly streamline the process and allow users without MarcEdit experience to change bibs by simply selecting the correct Marc Modification Template.
Another alternative would be if one could add a run a macro as an action in the marc modification template, since we can change indicators using a macro.
