[Koha] How could i notice hold

Hi Dagne,


please reply to the list – your question might be interesting for other libraries as well and others can try and help you when I am not around.


The checkin notice is an email with a list of the returned books. You were asking about the hold notices – those should also show up as an option in the same configuration table.


The same table should also show up in every patron account. As I wrote earlier, changes for the patron category will not be made to existing patrons, but only to new patrons. So you will have to update your existing patrons with your new messaging settings.


Best is to test with a test account to see how it all works together and how the notices look like.


Hope that explains better,

Hi Dagne,

you can send out hold notices when the book is available for pickup. What you need to do is enable the EnhancedMessagingPreferences system preference. Then you can configure standard settings for your category types. Please note, the standards will only be applied to new, but not to your existing patrons. You can activate the hold notice in the borrower accounts.


Hope that helps,
