Fine for failing to pick up request
We would like to have a fine automatically applied when a patron fails to pick up a request. The fine should be applied after the last pick-up date has passed if the request has not been picked up or cancelled. It should be possible to determine for which locations/user groups the fine will be applied.
A new 'Purged request fee' will be configurable for Hold Request TOU, similar to the one that already exists for booking requests. When the Expired Hold task list is used with one of the 'Reshelve', 'Transit' or 'Activate Next' functions then the request TOU will be consulted, and a fee will be created accordingly.

I support this! Adding this simple feature would save a considerable amount of work time in the bigger picture as this is something we do daily at our library.
