Winter break is just around the corner, which means it's time to heckle your patrons about returning their stuff on time. How can you notify patrons about coming due and overdue items at the same time? We've got a report for that!

Using the Coming Due Items Notice report for both coming due and overdue items is a breeze:

  1. Go to Tools > Reports > Circulation > Notices > Coming Due Items Notice.
  2. On the Selections tab, click on the arrow to the right of the Patrons with Items Due selection. Then click on Date Range.
  3. Leave the first date field blank. (This way, overdue items will be included as well.)
  4. Enter your ending date in the second date field. We suggest making this the last day before break.
  5. Make any other necessary selections (policy, grade, homeroom, etc).
  6. On the Options tab, choose in which format you'd like to send the notices. 

    Check out our documentation on the Coming Due Items Notice report to see what all of the different formats look like!

  7. If needed, customize the chosen format's checkboxes and notice text.
  8. Click Run.

If you chose to email the notices, you don't need to do anything else but wait for those books to come in! However, if you chose a paper format, you will need to download the notices from Operations Management wrench icon with red dot before printing and distributing them.


Happy holidays!
