How to configure mandatory and optional fields for user and patron records
- Article Type: General
- Product: Alma
How can I prevent the “Phone number” field from being mandatory in the Alma user and patron record? Every time I save a user and patron, if I do not have the phone number present I get a message “The field Telephone 1 is mandatory”. We do not use this field in our library and therefore we want to make this field optional.
Mandatory fields for user registration and Alma user management are set in Alma > User Management > Configuration Menu > Mandatory Fields > by type of user record.
For details see file "Mandatory Fields Configuration" on Customer Knowledge Center under:
Alma > Product Documentation > Alma Online Help > Administration > 040Configuring User management > 030Mandatory Fields Configuration
