      Hi,

      Can you elaborate on what the issue is ? Long Vendor reference numbers can be saved on the POL.

      Thanks,
      Moshe

          Hi,

          Is this the same as the 'Add 'activation note' to purchase order screen for electronic orders' idea ?

          Thanks,
          Moshe

            Hi,

            Please note that there's a 'Send Activity Report' option in the Manage Patron Services page that allows to trigger a report for a specific user. Would that be useful ?

            Thanks,
            Moshe

              Hi,

              Can you add more information about the workflow you would like to implement ?

              Thanks,

                Hi,

                You may be able to request without specifying a specific laptop by using the 'Request Another Issue' request option.

                Thanks,

                What would be purpose of having both options ? When would the patron expect to see an item level option as opposed to a title level option ?

                  Yes, as you noted it is working correctly when the loan is issued for the first time, and it should work the same for the renewal.

                  Hi,

                  The loan due date is expected to take into account the loan TOU's Closed Library Management Policy, so that the patron gets a due date on an open day. Is that not your experience ?

                  Thanks,
                  Moshe

                    Hi,

                    Why can't the library relations be used to limit the delivery options ? Also, the Fulfillment Unit's 'On Shelf Request Policy' can be used to limit requests on available items, for example for pickup in different campus only. Can that not be useful for this requirement ?

                    Thanks,
                    Moshe

                      The lender due date does not reflect the loan due date. Rather, the patron loan due does take into consideration the library calendar, so that the patron does not receive a due date that is a closed date.
                      Is that not your experience ?

                        What happens if you configure the lower priority copies to be at a Fulfillment Unit that allows requesting only non available copies (the FU's 'On Shelf Request Policy' attribute) ? Would that not achieve the purpose of having the FU's copies be selected only if other copies are not available ?

                          Hi,

                          Are you familiar with the 'Close Lost Loan' job ? You can create a set of long lost items using the 'Create Fulfillment Sets' utility, and then run the 'Close Lost Loan' job to delete the loans.

                          If a 'Return' action is done, the loan is indeed expected to be discharged from the patron’s account.

                          Thanks,
                          Moshe

                              Hi,

                              I am not sure I understand - what do you mean by 'search for more than one POL' ? What about the current search option does not match your requirement ?

                              Thanks,
                              Moshe

                                Please note that support can set up Restore Jobs Profiles that would limit the job to work only on specific temporary and/or permanent location. This may help solve your requirement.

                                    What would be an indication that the request is on a waiting list ? What action in the system would be a trigger for that ?

                                    Thanks,

                                    Hi,

                                    Are you familiar with the 'Will Supply' action?

                                    If you enable this option on the Borrowing workflow profile, then the lender can send this message to the borrower, notifying the borrower that the item will be supplied later. The request status on the borrower side will be affected.

                                      Hi,

                                      The embargo limit is configurable in the 'Block Preferences' (Fulfillment Configuration menu). You can use this option to configure this block to be overrideable. See https://www.screencast.com/t/M0mzQ8x3gC

                                      Thanks,
                                      Moshe

                                        Hi,

                                        If you set a recall period of many days (say 1000), would that not result in no change in the due date when recalling ?

                                        Thanks,
                                        Moshe

                                          Hi,

                                          Are you familiar with the 'Change PO Lines Status' job ? This job can be run to batch delete PO Lines,

                                          Of course, the normal limitation to deleting a POL apply. A PO line cannot be deleted if:

                                          * It is linked to an invoice line.
                                          * It is attached to a PO and has been sent to a vendor (if the PO has not been sent, the PO line can be removed from the PO and then deleted).
                                          * It is a main PO line and one of the PO line resources was received or activated (even if the PO line is in review)

                                          Thanks,
                                          Moshe

                                            The place in queue is visible when looking at the lending request's Manage Fulfillment Options page - see https://www.screencast.com/t/JTWfN4i3v .

                                            Thanks,
