I have set up three new item status: "15 minute loan", "half hour loan" and "one hour loan". But, the fines are not being configured? I made the fines very high because the directions say "The sum refers to a full day. In order for it to refer to an hour, take the hourly amount that you want, multiply it by 24, and place the resulting sum in this column".
I have also made my fine method in column 14 of tab16 "A - open minutes".
But, I still do not see fines. Why?
(I also added the statuses to tab15. And, just for checking how it works, I made a "one minute loan". The "one minute loan" we do not plan to use, but I made it so the circulation librarians can check how it works.) Look at my tab16, what's wrong?
For the benefit of all, I will include the lines from your tab16 here. Everything is defined perfectly. The reason it does not work is because after changing tab16 you must wait for new due dates and fines to take effect after 24:00 (midnight) or you can drop z301 in util a 17 1 (very carefully). Do util a 17 1 for z301 and it will work.
Also, please note that in $alephe_root/aleph_start you have a parameter "setenv fine_factor_fix" which you can use to have your fines automatically multiplied by a number.
Also, you can check fine configuration via UTIL F 2/10
Here is the tab16:
!* Item status 43 Fifteen minute loan
16A 43 ## ## + 00000000 00 + 0015 0000 99900 020 010 A
!* Item status 44 Half hour loan
16A 44 ## ## + 00000000 00 + 0030 0000 99900 020 010 A
!* Item status 45 Hour loan
16A 45 ## ## + 00000000 00 + 0100 0000 99900 020 010 A
!* Item status 46 One minute loan
16A 46 ## ## + 00000000 00 + 0001 0000 99900 020 010 A
Here is the tab15.eng (Hebrew is same, just translated):
15A 43 ## L Fifteen Minutes Y Y Y Y Y N N Y Y 00
15A 44 ## L Half Hour Y Y Y Y Y N N Y Y 00
15A 45 ## L One Hour Y Y Y Y Y N N Y Y 00
15A 46 ## L One Minute Y Y Y Y Y N N Y Y 00
Here is tab18.eng (Hebrew is same):
16(2) SAK50-ALEPH>>grep "Late return" tab18.eng
! 0003 Late return - fine is defined in tab16 ! 0014 Late return of routed issue
0003 ##### ## Y Late return
0014 ##### ## Y Late return of issue
