Customize Items Out Display for Lost, etc.

Items which are LOST, LONGOVERDUE, or CLAIMSRETURNED may now be displayed in the top/main list of circulations instead of the bottom list in the staff client patron Items Out interface. Similarly, such items can be removed from the display once the items are checked in even if the transaction is still open (fines are owed, etc.).

Apart from organization, this has two additional effects:

  • If all 3 types are hidden once checked in, the interface becomes a true items out interface, instead of a combination of items out and special circumstance checked-in circs.
  • If, in addition, all types are configured to be displayed in the top list, the bottom list is hidden from the UI (since nothing would display there), which creates more screen space for the main items out list.

New Library Settings

  • Items Out Long-Overdue display setting (ui.circ.items_out.longoverdue)
  • Items Out Lost display setting (ui.circ.items_out.lost)
  • Items Out Claims Returned display setting (ui.circ.items_out.claimsreturned)

The value for each is a numeric code, describing which list the circulation should appear while checked out and whether the circulation should continue to appear in the bottom list, when checked in, regardless of the state of the transaction.

  • 1 = top list, then bottom list
  • 2 = bottom list, then bottom list
  • 5 = top list, then do not display
  • 6 = bottom list, then do not display

Hint: to hide the bottom list entirely, set the value for all three settings to 5.

Adjustable font size in the staff client catalog

When using the staff client, the font size in the catalog can now be increased/decreased by using the CTRL key with + (to increase), with - (to decrease), and with 0 (to restore default font size). Font sizes can persist via a setting in user preferences.

Standalone Mode Shortcut

The Evergreen installer now includes a shortcut that launches the staff client directly into standalone (offline) mode.

User Setting Defaults

For use during Patron Registration, we can now supply default values for User Settings, under AdminServer AdministrationUser Setting Types.
