E-Book titles - Display "Not Available" phrases in RED LETTERS
Can you display the "Not Available: No sales rights in your region" phrase in the Title Details tab and the "Not Available" phrase in the title record, in RED LETTERS. Presently they are in black letters and hard to spot. I consider these phrases as a Status or a Cancellation, which you display in red or orange letters.
Thank you all for this feedback. This is now live in Authorize Orders, and will be extended across to the other pages as well.
To Julie's point, you are absolutely right, and we do hope to remove them from the OASIS search results at some point, unfortunately we are not technically able to do so in the interface just yet, but it is absolutely on the list.
Yes, this is a big concern for our institution. When at the “Express Checkout” screen in the ordering process, ebook options for a title that are not available in the US should display a warning note next to it. For example the option could look like this when selecting the down arrow: Ebook Central Single user (2020) **Not available in the United States** $125.99
I tend to check prices and options from this screen as a last effort to find the best deal for our libraries. It i problematic to have to go back and order titles and reconsider funding allocations.

Yes, it would be nice to know when an ebook is not available in our region before we order it rather than having to place an order and then our order being cancelled. It would be much easier to know up front.

I agree, but I would go one step further and say -- if you can stop titles from creating an API order - you should be able to stop them coming up when people are searching for a title to order it. I assume that most users are not searching Oasis for titles NOT TO ORDER.
