    Create Work Order linked to the Circulation Desk

    • Product: Alma



    How to create a Work Order which can be processed at the Circulation Desk (e.g. enabling students to process binding items)?


    Set Up the Work Order:

    1. Be at the Institution or Library Level. Note that if the Institution has one operational library (besides the Resource Sharing Library) - it is best to add the Work Order on the Library level.
    2. In: Configuration > General > Work Order Types
    3. Add Work Order Type > Fill the menu; decide here if the Work Order will recall loans
    4. In (...) Actions - Manage Statuses. Add any status (work order stage) such as Binding, Repair, Restoration.
    5. Because of the next step, it is not needed to add a Department

    Link the Work Order to the Circulation Desk:

    1. Configuration >  select the Library level
    2. Fulfillment > Circulation Desks
    3. Edit > in Work Order Types (tab) > add the Work Order Type.
