Hi Christopher,

What I would do in that situation is check in the item, if there is a 
hold, click "Ignore", put the item in quarantine, when it gets out of 
quarantine, check it in again and confirm the hold. That way, the item 
is removed from the previous patron's file, but no email is sent out 
right away.

Otherwise, I don't think it's possible to change the waiting date.

Best regards,
