How can we improve Alma?

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.

    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.
