    One document with multiple items, definition of fines/costs for DVD box

    • Article Type: Q&A

    • Product Version: 20


    For DVD boxes an item per each disc is created. There are costs and fines defined for borrowing a record and in case of a DVD box the costs/fines apply for the whole box. Can this be covered in the system? Currently a patron has to pay "double" when he borrows 2 discs from a DVD box.


    Unfortunately there is no solution. The circulation transactions are defined to work on basis of a single item and this can't be changed. The correct way would be to add ONE item for the complete DVD box.
