Tip for: 02.06.17
Last week we followed Mark’s adventures with overdue fines, and you became a financial expert in Alexandria, right? Well, we all know things don’t always go so perfectly easy, so let’s start some ‘What if’ scenarios. What if Mark brought a $1 bill to pay the 50¢ fine and you don’t have change?
An easy way to deal with this is to add the money as a credit first, and use his credit to pay the fine.
How to add a credit:
- In Circulation, bring up Mark as the Current Patron.
- Go to the Charges tab, and the History subtab (v7) or the Credits subtab (v6 Web Librarian only).
- Click Add Credit or + at the bottom.
- In the dialog window, enter a Credit Amount of 1.
- Click Process or OK.
How to pay from credit:
- In the Charges subtab, select the overdue fine.
- Click Make Payment.
- Enter .5 in the Pay from Credit field.
- Click Process.
That way 50¢ pays the fine, and the other 50¢ is available as credit on his account for next time.
