Good morning, all!

    No, not quite. The mistake is understandable. I struggled how to
explain it myself and had to settle on this convolution.

    I used to be systems librarian for Innovative Interfaces' InnoPAC (III)
and later Sierra ILS. III required that check-in boxes for serials be set
up before the issues be checked in. Since this was a tedious task, III
eventually amended the ILS to let us set up multiple check-in boxes (called
extrapolation) in one sitting. Once the boxes were set up, we could check
in multiple boxes in one sitting.

    I've been looking for an analogous operation in Koha, but I have been
unable to see one. The multi-receive allows for checking in, marking late,
etc. multiple check-in boxes in one sitting, but it does not for setting up
the check-in boxes initially before the issues are checked in.

    Unless there is something I don't know. Does anyone have an idea?

    In my original exchange, on 6 May 2022 at 13:24 [JST], I wrote:

I think what you're talking about is called "Multi receiving" in Koha. From

    Many thanks.
