    Patron deleted - can barcode be re-entered?

    PRN50 patron deleted in error by staff user. Can the record be re-entered with same barcode? Staff gets error, is there a time frame after which the barcode may be re-used?

    As a test, I made a note of a v18 USM50 patron name and barcode, and then I deleted the patron (Patrons -- Delete Patron [CNTL-U] ).

    I then did "New patron" and entered in this same patron name and barcode. The patron was created with no problem.

    [From site:]

    Staff user had logged in with another staff user that did not have privileges. This is resolved.
