[Koha] Koha Routing List Email Alerts

Hi there,

I came across this just the other day. :)

The way it works is as follows:

First, configure your subscription to have an entry in the Patron 
Notification drop down (See screenshot 1 I have attached)

Then, log in as a user of the opac, search for that serial, then click 
"More details" at the bottom of the record. You should then see a link 
"Subscribe to email notification on new issues"

Staff can then see who has subscribed in the serials interface - by 
clicking on Subscribers next to Patron notification (see screenshots 2 
and 3 I have attached).

This functionality of patrons receiving email when a serial is received 
is actually independent of the routing lists, and patrons cannot 
actually be added to the subscriptions by a librarian from the staff 
interface (a severe limitation of the feature, in my opinion).

Nicole - It would be cool if this were in the manual, I think this 
feature is currently undocumented.

I hope this helps,

Liz Rea
