Pathfinder Central 3rd Quarter Meeting
Monday July 9, 2012
Hays Public Library Gallery
Fixes in the Works:
3.10 Release—allow items to be transferred back home when “IndependentBranches” and “canreservefromotherbranches” are both enabled. (As we had with LibLime—We will share materials, not patrons)
3.8 Release—add the Holds Notes on the Holds Queue display
3.8 Release—Patron Credit Errors
—that manual credits do not update the outstanding amount
—use the Pay tab and never use the manual credit tab again
—Overdue Report display error—cannot click on link to patron record
Long Overdue (Lost) Status
Click ^ (computer icon on bar) for FULL Screen
Generic Password for Patron Accounts—The System does not automatically assign a default password.
—You will see **** in the display for the password—this only indicates that the password is encrypted…there is NO PASSWORD automatically generated.
—MANUAL FIX—When creating a patron account, input a generic password for the account. Have the patron change the password once they log in.
—Password suggestion: library OR read OR books

Handy CKLS Tips
Koha Issues and Troubleshooting
When an item that is checked out is marked lost, the patron it is checked out to is automatically charged a replacement fee. If the item is found and checked back in, then the patron's account is automatically credited the replacement fee.
I have turned Circulation Sounds. This will cause a chime during circulation to help catch when an item isn't scanned in correctly. Should we decide we don't like it, I can turn it off again.
