    Timeout in Alma - Circulation Desk

    • Product: Alma


    How can we customize the amount of time that a circulation desk operator can work with the loan or return menus, before the window times itself out?


    The steps to update the parameter are:

    1. Go to Configuration > Fulfillment > Other Settings
    2. For the parameter "patron_services_timeout_minutes," click: Customize
    4. Change the value
    5. Save the value

    Please note that this timeout parameter refers only to the number of minutes after which the Patron Services page closes.
    You can configure a value between 1-30 minutes. The default value is 2 minutes

    Additional Information

    Please also note that timeout in Alma's sessions is discussed in another article (Timeout in Alma).
