Add the ability to batch change the expiry date of items on the hold shelf
It can be useful to manipulate the Expiry date of items on the hold shelf. However you have to do this per item. It would be good to be able to batch update all items due to expire in a given period to a new value.
This would save so much of our time, now more than ever we realized the need for flexibility.

I agree, this would really be a huge help, especially in Covid times when you dont know when the library will really open again and you have update the whole bunch several times!
ExLibris has not been able to figure out why Alma is generating the wrong hold expiration date for our Resource Sharing requests. This would be a huge help! For the past several months I have been updating the expiration for every single hold I put on the hold shelf individually. It is a pain!

This is useful.
Many users would benefit from hold shelf period extensions - it is a frequent request for staff to manually change the period to meet the customer's availability - subject to there not being any further requests, of course.
Automating this for a user/group of items on the hold shelf would be convenient.
You could also see a use case for the customers to have the ability to 'request extension' somehow too.
