Miss Honey has a new procedure for picking up holds, but patrons keep forgetting to only come during certain hours. How can she remind patrons of the new pickup hours each time they have holds ready? Well, with Alexandria, she can customize the text of her automatic in-stock hold notices!
While Alexandria comes with default text for various notices, we realize you may need to change the text to suit the needs of the moment. You can change the text for the following notices:
- Circulation Letter
- In-Stock Hold
- Recall (v6 only)
- Reservation Notice
- Overdue Suspension Notice
- Patron Suspension Notice
- Account Access Information
- Email Signature
- Circulation Notice
- Circulation Notice Email Subject
- Refund Letter
- Damage Letter
- Subscription Claim Letter
Whether you use v7 or v6, here's how you can edit the text of a notice:
- Go to Preferences > Circulation.
- Click on the Letters tab.
- Select the letter you wish to edit.
- Edit the text.
- Click Save in the upper right-hand corner.
And voilà! Now your patrons will be in the know on what's happening at your library.
Immediately check out in-stock holds
