Preventing Change of Due Date (Recall) when placing Physical Item Request
When placing a physical item request for an item that is checked out, we typically want to recall the item, but there are sometimes exceptions to this. For these exceptions, we would like to have the option, while placing the request, to prevent the recall and simply add the requester to the queue without changing the due date.

This is (or should be!) a standard option to reflect good practice. There are many times we need to recall, but also many times that we only need to have the item held whenever it is returned.
I concur, but for the opposite reason. Normally, we do NOT want to recall, but rather want to be able to hold the item for an interested patron at whatever point the item is returned and to prevent a RENEWAL. Basically, there is a difference between a hold and a recall, and we need both.

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, would also like to see this.
