    Why can expired patrons place requests?


    • Product: Alma


    Why can expired patrons place requests, although they cannot checkout materials?


    The ability to place a request by a user whose Patron Role has expired can be controlled with the switch check_for_expired_account.  When "true", requests can't be placed.

    Alternatively , if you were to remove the user’s patron role, or add a block, these users will not be able to place requests.

    Additional Information

    Find out more in "Configuring Other Settings (User Management)". 

    Regarding the implication of Expiry Date for the User record - find "Expiration Date", in: "Managing Users".
