[Koha] Default to logged in branch vs "all branches'

Fri Sep 19 02:25:30 NZST 2014

	Sorry for jumping in late here.  For what it is worth, I am one of the advocates for not having the "All Libraries" be the default in most places.  With that said, there are a couple ways I would approach a resolution with something of this nature.  First, I would put another dreaded preference to control this behavior.  As some multi-branch or single library systems may prefer only dealing with the "All Libraries" settings, and other do not, it would be great to have the ability to switch this behavior.  Second, I would make the "All Libraries" settings stand out from the individual libraries.  For example, if "All Libraries" is selected in the notices, perhaps the font or the dropdown box changes color to red or yellow on the main and editing pages.  It should be more obvious than a couple of words on the page.

	Hope this helps.

As many of you already know, there are a good number of areas in Koha where
we have settings for each library, and an "all libraries" default. Examples
of this are the circulation rules, slips and notices, overdue status
triggers, etc. Some librarians would like the default view to be the
library's rules, rather than the "all libraries" rules. The idea being that
this would stop librarians from editing the "all libraries" rules by

The two bugs in question are:

Bug 11625 - Default to logged in library for circ rules and notices & slips

Bug 11747 - Default to logged in library for Overdue notice/status triggers

Please let us know how you feel about this!
