    We would also very much like to see this change. It is too easy to accidentally scan items more than once for check-in and skew your in-house statistics. We want to start collecting this data but have put it off because of this issue.

    Agree that this would be most helpful for laptops and other technology items that need to be reset or maintained in between loans. Great idea, Paul!

    I just wanted to give this idea another bump. My library has added iPads to our circulating items and want to have them available for one academic quarter, with an option to renew for one additional quarter. We want patrons to come into the library with the item in order to renew. If we could configure our auto-renewal rule to omit the iPads, it would be very useful. I see a comment from Moshe about using TOUs to "limit" renewals, but I don't see a way to configure allowing manual renewal while prohibiting automatic renewal? Just adding a parameter to the auto renew rule to select for physical location would be so much cleaner. Thank you!

    Yes, this is extremely important! I have never come across a library, academic or public, that allowed renewals on all materials in all locations. Even public libraries usually restrict renewals for bestsellers, etc. We have a collection of short term loan textbooks and course materials that are not eligible for renewal, but all the other collections in the library are. We have been doing auto renewals for our general collection for about a year, and patrons love it. We would hate to have to take that away from them.

    The 'Claimed Returned' action will be available for lost loans. It will change the loan status to 'claimed returned'.

    A customer parameter will determine whether the change to claimed returned should trigger a 'Find Item' action (and refund the lost item fees) + change to 'claim return', or only change to 'claim return'.

    Agree! Please give us a one-click solution to change "Lost" status items to "Claimed Returned", just as we can with "Normal" status.

    Hi,

    It will be possible to configure the system (with a utomatic renew rule output parameter to say whether to send an email to the patron when renewal takes place.

    If emails are sent, they will be sent in an aggregated manner (single notice for all renewed loans)

    Hi there, my library is also very interested to know when this will be implemented. Automatic renewals are very popular with our patrons, and a great many of them ask us repeatedly why they do not get a notification when the renewal is successful. Thanks!
