Fines in Grace Period should let users decide to calculate or not.
According to the policy that our institution laid down, Fines in Grace Period shouldn't be calculated.
If overdue fines count $5 a day and grace period value is 3, then patron returned an item in 4th day after due date, the patron should pay only $5.
But in Alma, we cannot set grace period that won't calculate fines. Hope to add this function to let users decide grace period fines calculate or not and make alma more flexible.
As of July release the grace period can be set to not be included in the fine period at all.
For more information please see Alma release notes:
It is good chance to flexible over coming days. We should care its patron till high price

We have the same requirement. We do not fine patrons for the grace period, no matter the item is returned in grace period or not. This was supported in Aleph. And we wish this can also be supported in Alma.
