Find out about our Alexandria Makeover, coming early 2023! Betas are available now. 

September 14th, 2020

You told us, and we listened! With your feedback, we updated Patron Details to be more efficient and helpful than ever before. Have you given it a try yet?

Along with the reorganization, we've made Patron Details interactive! Say you want to renew an item or forgive a charge for the patron whose Details you're viewing. Simply click on that section's heading (i.e. "Items Out" or "Charge Summary") to be taken to the right place in Circulation. You can also click on a title to make it the Current Item.

Take a look at the When are my books due?—Send Patron Details to everyone tip to learn how to use the Send Patron Details Email report.

We'd again like to thank all of those who took our survey on Patron Details. Your insights were integral to its redesign! If you'd like to regularly give feedback on what's coming next in Alexandria, consider

The new and improved Patron Details is only available on v7. Still on version 6? Learn about switching to Alexandria 7!

    Please put the patron's grade back in view when in Circulation. We shouldn't have to go to details to see this.

    1. Hi! Grade will be included in the Current Pane Pane with the Makeover. Thanks!

      Hello! You can view Patron Details without cover art by unchecking the Include cover art checkbox at the bottom left-hand side of the dialog.

    We dont have a receipt printer and end up having to print the patron's details when shipping books. Is it possible to add optional text to the Print Details function?
