    How to set up override for Max Number Items Borrowed limit

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.0

    Question

     

    How can we check out items to a patron who has already reached their max number of items borrowed limit?

    Answer

    Operators can be allowed to override the limit in Circulation Security Profile settings. This will allow any/all operators linked to that Circulation Security Profile to override those patron blocks.

    1. Go to System Administration > Security > Circulation Profiles > [choose profile] > click Edit
    2. Go to the Patron Blocks tab
    3. Move the following blocks from "Available Patron Blocks" to "Operator May Override" column:
      1. Charged items limit
      2. Charged Items Limit for Item's Item Type
      3. Charged Items Limit for Policy Group for Item's Item Type
    4. Save
    Operators who do not have override permission will see a "Supervisor ..." button when the block message appears.
    1. Click "Supervisor ..."
    2. Operator with override permission ("Supervisor") enters operator ID and password
    3. Supervisor may override block
