    Voyager Short Loan won't allow bookings in adjacent time slots

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



    In Voyager Short Loan, if there is an existing 2-hour item short loan from 2:00 to 4:00, the next available time is 5:00, when it should be 4:00. Why is this?


    Double-check the setting in SysAdmin>Circulation>Miscellaneous for the Short Loan Time Buffer value and ensure it is set to 0.

    The documentation (Table 5-6 in the System Administration User's Guide) states:

    "Short Loan Time Buffer: The length in time used to separate the end of one short loan booking and the beginning of the next. This makes the item unavailable for short loan requests during this time."

    Additional Information

    This functionality was added in Voyager 8.
