    • Product: Voyager
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare

    Question

    Is it possible to purge all notes that were last saved before a certain date?

    Is it possible to batch delete patron notes without deleting the patron record?

    Answer

    It's not possible to batch delete patron notes, but you can batch overlay the existing set of patron notes with new ones. 

    • XML export utility can export by patron ID.
    • Set patron notes to Overlay - which means whatever is in the XML patron record as patron notes will replace any existing patron notes.
    • If there are multiple patron notes, only the notes in the XML record will remain after import.
