Hi All,
We at Round Rock would like to co-sponsor a development that would allow a library to specify the number of purchase suggestions a patron can make in a specified number of weeks.  The weeks would be rolling.
Example:  Library specifies that patron can have 3 purchase suggestions in 4 rolling weeks.
Patron A submits a suggestion on November 28.  They then submit another 2 suggestions on December 14.  Koha will not allow them to make another suggestion until December 26.  If they submit a purchase suggestion on December 26, Koha will not allow the next suggestion until January 11.
Bywater estimated this development at $2,500.
Is anyone interested in co-sponsoring this with us?
