    SA/Circ: Incorrect due time for hourly/minutely loan on exception date

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.2

    Problem Symptoms

    • Hourly or minutely loan charged on exception date calculates loan according to circulation policy matrix
    • Apply Fixed Due Time For Overnight Loans is checked
    • No Overnight Loans In Effect time specified in the policy's circulation calendar.

    Defect status

    Issue VYG-4534 is currently in Development.

    Replication steps

    1. System Administration > Circulation > Policy Definitions > Policies Tab check boxes for Apply Fixed Due Times for Overnight Loans and Count Closed Days/Hours/Minutes for Loan. [NOTE: in Voyager 8.2.1 and 8.2.2, replicable without Count Closed Days/Hours/Minutes for Loan checked.]
    2. Create a matrix in this policy definition that has 2 hour loan period.
    3. Create a calendar that opens at 08:00 AM and closes at 08:00 PM. Do not supply Due and In Effect times.
    4. Add open exception date to calendar for today. Set close time within two hours of present (e.g., if it is 10:30 AM set close time 12:00 PM).
    5. Add calendar to policy definition from step 1.
    6. Log into Circulation at happening location in policy definition from step 1.
    7. Charge item out to patron that matches matrix item type/patron group from step 2. Instead of truncating due time to exception date closing time, remaining loan time is added to open time following day. (e.g., charged at 10:30 AM / exception closing at 12:00 PM / open tomorrow at 08:00 AM; due time given as 8:30 AM tomorrow).
    8. Remove the exception date and instead make today's close time within 2 hours. Repeat steps 6 & 7. Due time appropriately truncates to closing time today.


    Manually edit due date for hourly loans with loan period extending past close on Exception dates.
