Screenshot of the described problem

If a title has multiple items with different lost statuses, the output of search results in the staff client is misleading because of the way statuses are labeled. This is true if:

- items are the from the same branch
- items have the same call number
- items have different values for itemlost

In the example screenshot 2 Athens DVDs are Lost (lost) and one is Lost (missing). These items should either be grouped by authorized value category ("LOST") or each line should output the authorized value description ("Lost","Missing") to make it clear why they are grouped separately.

Display is still confusing on current master - different lost statuses are not grouped, but labelled the same.
Comment 2 Katrin Fischer 2019-05-04 12:23:15 UTC
I retested in current master and the different descriptions for the different lost values show now. Marking FIXED, please reopen if I missed something.
