Aleph v. 23 Upgrade: New Features/Functionality

This guide will provide training for the new features and functionality that comes with the upgrade to v. 23.

New Patron Checks

Hold Request Checks

There are many more check routines to block patrons from placing holds. In version 23, it is possible to block a patron from placing a hold if they have global or local blocks, if they have overdues, if they have reached a maximum number of overdues or overdue recalls, or have hit a maximum cash owing amount. There are also different ways to count how a maximum number of holds is reached. If you are interested in changing your hold policy please contact the Help Desk.

Restricting Cash Limit Related Check Routines to Specific Cash Types

If you block patrons based on how much they owe it is now possible to be choosy about which charges you want to count toward the block. i.e. you can now block patrons if they have more than $50 in overdue fines without counting the replacement cost of the items. If you are interested in changing your cash related block policies please contact the Help Desk.
