    Loan Recall Button in the Circulation Module

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Can you please tell us where the Loan recall button is placed in Aleph v18?
    We miss the button from v16.

    The recall button on the "Item List" was removed in v18 (See below the relevant release note):
    The functionality of generation the Recall letter (while generating an hold request) now depends on the set up in tab100 of the following variable:

    1.38 Online Recall
    An option for online recall has been added. If this option is used (depending on the tab100 variable ONLINE-RECALL, see ALEPH Tables Release Notes) then recalls will be triggered at GUI hold request creation. This means that whenever a hold request that requires recalling is submitted by staff, the due date of the loan is changed and a letter printed. The required recall due date is now part of the GUI hold request form and is by default determined by the tab16 'Number of days for recall notice' and ' Minimum guaranteed loan period' parameters. Note that this recall is attached to a hold request creation. Also note that this feature is only in GUI-placed requests.
    The GUI Recall button that allowed creating a recall without a hold request has been removed.
