A new budget, GIFT-DEFAULT was created
The staff did not create this budget.
How/why was it created?
The GIFT-DEFAULT budget is generated by the system in the case of an order with:
- Method of acquisition = gift
Z68-METHOD-OF-AQUISITION = "G"
- the estimated price = 0.00
Z68-E-PRICE = 0.00
- the budget is blank
In order not to have all gifts in the library system assigned to budget 'GIFT-DEFAULT' it might be considered to create e.g. annual budgets for gifts, such as GIFT-2012, GIFT-2013 and assign them using the 'Encumber' functionality.
This could be useful in large systems with many gifts to avoid performance problems and easier creation of statistics for gifts.
