Miss Honey decided that some of the younger grades need different rules and settings than some of the older grades–like how many items they can check out at once.
She can use Patron Policies to set up preferences for different groups of students, and so can you!
Creating a new patron policy
- Go to Preferences > Policies
- Click Add at the bottom of the Patron Policy column
- Give it a name – ex: Lower grades, 1st-3rd etc.
- Add a shortcode (shortcodes are between 1-4 characters and are usually an abbreviation of the name, ex: 1-3 or LWGD)
- Leave the Statistics Group as Current Policy
- Click Add
Once your new patron policy is created, go to each of the tabs (Checkout, Overdue, and Other) and set up the rules for that group of patrons. Then click in the top right corner. Use these same steps to create any additional policies for other grades.
