We recently received an upgrade to our Koha sandbox. Links to the sandbox can be found on the ILS web site Training page. Koha now displays the full library name and the agency code when checking in transit holds. You can try this out yourself in the sandbox. This is the development project we contracted to fix SCLS Support Ticket 40354.
I also would like to bring your attention to a substantial improvement in the way that holds management works from the staff side. This is the completion of our first post go live development project which was contracted to improve the following:
You cannot place holds on titles with a large number of holds (e.g. Smokin' seventeen, The King's speech (DVD)) in the staff client. You can place holds on these titles in the PAC. Also, you cannot view the holds lists or change pickup locations for these titles. (SCLS Support Ticket 39880)
LibLime has provided us with documentation for the new holds development which you can find on the Training page under the Testing Documents section. Holds management will look quite different, so now is a good time to read the document and try out this new functionality in the sandbox before it is added to our production database. [Note: as of right now the sorting feature has ascending and descending order reversed. We have reported this to LibLime.]
