    Aleph 21 GUI : User name formating in fast patron registration

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18


    When entering a new patron via the GUI (fast patron registration, version 21) the name in Address Information / Address details gets printed name, title (with a comma in the middle)

    In version 18 we had Title Name. Can this be changed?


    In Aleph 21 there is no option to enter the Name in the way it was in Aleph 18.

    This problem is only solved with Aleph 22 with the introduction of 2 patron fields: z303_last_name and z303_first_name.

    Additional Information

    Problem description for Aleph 22 following the Eluna enhancement request (Eluna-2010-circ-02)
    In v.18, there were two name fields in the fast patron registration form--first and last name. These two fields were combined into one name field in v.19. This causes patron names to be entered inconsistently in the fast patron registration form and therefore, it can be difficult to find the patron name in the patron list.

    More information about this change can be found in our documentation center Aleph > Technical Documentation > Version 22 > Release Notes (New Features), section "Two Patron Name Fields (First Name and Last Name)"
