Allow users to show/hide Angular grid menu entries

Bug Description

Evergreen 3.7 / Wishlist

Given the number of entries in the actions-for-selected-rows (<eg-grid-toolbar-action/>) Angular grid menus, it would be helpful if staff had the ability to hide (and re-show) selected menu entries.

The show/hide settings can live within the existing grid preferences structure, so no new workstation settings would be required.

The grid configuration menu would get a new action (e.g. Edit Actions Menu) that opens the menu in an editable format where users can select to show/hide individual entries.

From commit:

Adds a new Angular Grid configuration menu entry labeled "Manage Actions Menu", which launches a new dialog which allows staff to show/hide individual entries in the grid toolbar actions menu / context menu. The new menu action is disabled when a grid has no toolbar actions.

As with other Grid changes, the user must still click Save Grid Settings to persist the changes.

Just noting we deployed this locally to production and staff are very happy with it.

The new Manage Actions Menu is nice and appears to be working. Much of the admin interface has either edit/delete actions. However, this feature is quite nice in tidying up the Holdings View of a bib record. I have tested this code and consent to signing off on it with my name, Erica Rohlfs and my email address, <email address hidden>.

Testing this in 3.8 and have found that the selections are not sticky. I would expect that selections would remain until deselected.

Using a staff account -

1 - opened Holds Pull List. From Manage Actions Menu, deselected all Item actions. The selections updated in the Actions menu. After refreshing the screen (and in a separate test closing the pull list and reopening it), the selections did not persist.

2 - opened an item record > holdings view. Deselected actions, changing the action options for that record. Performed another search, without closing or refreshing that tab, and the deselected actions reappeared in the menu.

I just tested this in 3.8.0 and it is working for me.

Thanks for providing your steps, I don't see that they include clicking 'Save Grid Settings', which is required to make the selections stick per Comment #1:

"As with other Grid changes, the user must still click Save Grid Settings to persist the changes."

Does that fix the issue?

Hi Michele,

D'Oh! Yeah, saving is always good, and solved all the problems. Good thing to note for training at least, that the behavior is *not* like other check/uncheck settings, such check in modifiers and similar toggles.
