April 25, 2022

Does your library close up for the summer? You'll want to make sure email notifications are turned off, so your patrons don't keep getting messages all summer. 

Automatic Email Notifications

To turn off automatic email notifications, go to the Circulation Settings tab in Circulation Preferences and uncheck Enable Automatic Email Notifications. Make yourself a reminder to turn this back on once school resumes!

Scheduled Email Notifications

If you have saved reports, you'll also need to follow these steps:

  1. Check for saved reports by going to Tools > Reports. Make sure you have the All Reports category selected before clicking on the Saved tab.
    • If you only need to check email notices to patrons, then click on the Notices subcategory within the Circulation category instead.
  2. Scheduled reports will have a calendar icon to the right of the saved report's name. Check the Options tab for each one.
  3. Unlock the reports page.
  4.  For every report with an "email" format selected on the Options tab, switch to the Schedule tab and uncheck Schedule Report. Save and continue down the list.

If you need help with turning off email notifications, or anything else in Alexandria, don't hesitate to reach out to our support staff at

The Makeover betas are here! Look in Circulation, Items, and Patrons for a purple alert button  at the top of your screen. That will take you to the Makeover beta in our demo where you can play around recklessly.
