    Adding Additional ID's with Fast Patron Registration

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    FastPatronRegistration=Y in circ library.ini file
    Create new patron and enter information into all the ID fields.
    The Additional IDs are added (check in the Additional IDs node in the left pane).
    But, when you search the patron list no information displays in the ID column.
    Why does this happen?

    The column Patron ID is empty only for Patrons which don't have an Additional ID 02.
    If most of library patrons do *not* have an additional ID of type 02, we suggest
    (1) don't set the tab100 flag PATRON-LIST-ID-TYPE=02 and
    (2) add Additional ID manually in Circulation GUI if it necessary.
    This setup allows sort in Patron List by Patron ID 00 (System number).
