    GIFT-DEFAULT budget

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02


    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


    - the estimated price = 0.00

    Z68-E-PRICE = 0.00

    - the budget is blank

    Additional Information

    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.
