When I look at my Transaction Archive, I cannot see books that are on someone's wish list. I thought you used to be able to see a W or WA if someone was wishing one of your books.  Has something changed?  I now have to check the individual title to see if anyone wishes a book.

I don't remember it ever showning it on the transaction archive but then I never paid much attention. I use the TBR Pile to list the books I own and that tells you if there's a wisher or not.

It's also on "my bookshelf."  The books you have posted have a check mark to the left.  If they are not posted, but in your transaction archive, they have a line thru the check mark.  If they are WL, it is noted to the right.

The BIR list also shows if someone is wishing for it. Both those books that are wished for and those that members have on auto request.

As mentioned above, the feature you're looking for is on your bookshelf and your Books I've Read list.

If you aren't seeing your "on hold" books on your bookshelf -- the ones you received from other members -- try changing the "view" option on your bookshelf from "posted books" to "all books."   (The default when we mark a book received is to have it placed on our bookshelf on hold.  If you don't see the "hold" books on your shelf, it could be that you chose not to have them placed on your bookshelf when marking them received.)
