* Currently the loan receipt is printed on a small docket printer at the Service Point.
* Is it possible to get ALEPH to e-mail the receipt to the patron instead?
Yes, this is possible:
1. To configure that a printout should send by e-mail you need to make sure that the XML file of the printout contains the e-mail address to which it should be send.
form-print-method EMAIL S
(if there is no specific loan-receipt.trn translation file then the global.trn will be used)
As a result, when printing a loan receipt, the XML file will contain a tag <email-address>:
## - XML_XSL
<email-address>firstname.lastname@example.org</email-address> << see here
Then, to configure that the GUI should send the receipt by e-mail to the specified address, set col. 4 in circ\tab\print.ini to "M" (= Mail) or "B" (= Both):
