    Trying to change due date for a loan, the error message is:

    "The loan due date cannot be changed".


    "Standard opening hours" were not defined for the library to which the item belongs.

    The steps are:

    1. Fulfillment Configuration Menu > You are configuring: <the Library>
    2. Click: Opening Hours
    -- Currently this library doesn't inherit open hours and shows none
    3. Add 7 days with opening hours information
    4. Click: "Apply Changes"
