    Is it possible to have items initially issued for 2 weeks then auto-renewed for 1 week?


    Yes, this is possible.
    In the relevant terms of use, define a 14 days loan in the "due date" policy. In the "Maximum Renewal Period" policy, define 21 days. This is the maximum period of the entire loan, so it will allow for 7 extra days after the original 14 days period.
    Note that this will be used for auto-renewals as well as for manual renewals. It is not possible to handle auto-renewals different than manual renewals.
