James is right, this will change the default expiry date for a
category. However he is also right this won't change the expiry dates
of existing patrons.
At the moment (in Koha 3.4.4) we have batch item modifications and are
tidying off batch biblio modifications. But there is currently no tool
for batch patron modifications.
If you have access to your database though, (or know someone who does)
you can ask them run some sql like like this
UPDATE borrowers SET dateexpiry = '2012-01-01' WHERE categorycode='A';
You might like to check bugs.koha-community.org to see if there is an
enhancement request for batch modifying patrons, and if not add one.
September 22 is the cut off date for new features for 3.6.0 so there's
still time :)
