    Loan Receipts are not printed or emailed from Alma - how to solve this?

    • Product: Alma

    Question

    Loan Receipts are not being printed or emailed to patrons, even though the loan receipt letter ("FulLoanReceiptLetter") is enabled. How can we resolve this?

    Answer

    1. Confirm that the relevant Circulation Desk configuration has "Creates loan receipts" checked.

    2. Confirm that staff click the "Done" button after loaning item(s) to the patron. The letter is sent only after the 'Done' button is clicked, as this signals the completion of the session. 

    The button is located in the upper right-hand corner of the 'Manage Patron Services' screen:
