Support PO activation without requiring items

A new Activate PO Without Loading Items option in the PO allows staff to activate the PO without loading copies into the catalog.

Differentiate between cancelled and "delayed" lineitems

In the ACQ user interface, it is now more clear to users when a lineitem has been fully cancelled or if it has been cancelled temporarily (e.g. back-ordered).

When a lineitem is cancelled, but "keep_debits" is true on the cancel reason, the lineitem is in effect delayed instead of truly cancelled. This is now more obvious in the interface with different row styling for cancelled vs delayed lineitems. We also always show the lineitem cancel reason (label) next to the non-title attributes in the lineitem list display.

Opportunistic Acquisitions In-Process Copy Overlay

Improves existing acquisitions copy overlay code (which matches and overlays using specified IDs) by adding broader matching criteria. By selecting the new option, Auto Overlay In-process Acquisitions Copies, the system will potentially overlay copies which:

  • have associated lineitem details (that is, they were created by the acquisitions process),
  • that lineitem detail has the same owning_lib as the incoming copy’s owning_lib, and
  • the current copy associated with that lineitem detail is In process.

Printing PO Names on Purchase Orders

The Print Purchase Order option now prints the PO Name in addition to the PO ID.
