The end of the school year is approaching, and Miss Honey is wondering what she should do about holds since none of them will be fulfilled over the summer. How can she remove holds so patrons don't get any notifications about them over break? Alexandria has a utility that makes this a breeze!
Did you know that we consolidated all of our holds utilities into one back in 20.3?
This makes it easier to do everything in one place.
Go to Tools > Utilities > Titles > General > Remove Holds.
- Use the Selections tab to specify which titles should be included.
- Choose which types of holds to remove under the Options tab. Unless you want to fill one last round of in-stock holds (in which case, use Remove queue holds only), you can probably just remove all holds.
Remove queue holds only. Removes all holds in the queue for selected titles and their copies, which includes suspended holds. View the holds queue for a specific title in its Copy List.
- Remove in-stock and on-shelf holds only. Removes all in-stock and on-shelf holds for selected titles and their copies, but does not remove queue holds.
- Remove all holds. Removes all holds for selected titles and their copies.
- Click Run.
And you're done!
Use the Clear Titles Holds and Clear Title Holds, In-Stock Holds, and In-Transit Holds utilities to remove holds.
