Option to turn fines off for a period
Recently one of our library is trying to look at the stocks, hence, they have sent out an announcement for all patrons at the specific to return their loaned items and we informed them that their fines will be waived for that fine free period.
But after raising a Salesforce case, we realised that Alma could not turn off fines for a certain period.
Would an option to turn the fines on and off be appropriate to be added to Alma?

On a case-by-case basis, ALMA needs to be able to have a FINE-FREE Checkin. Your competitors have this feature. PLEASE get on it!!
We also had a situation recently where we wanted to waive fines for specific dates, because we had to close due to snow. The only option it seems currently is to bulk waive all fines. However, this does not suit our requirement. More flexibility would be a real asset
