Tip for: 12.19.16

It’s that time of year: School has been canceled because of the weather. What do you do about items due today? Good news—there is a utility to Change Due Dates.

Change Due Date Utility

The Change Due Date utility in v7, or the Fix Due Date utility in v6, is helpful to globally change the due date for a selected group of items.

  • In Utilities, search for ‘due date’, and select the Change Due Date or Fix Due Date utility.
  • Look at the Selection tab.
  • In v6, add a Select By for Due Date, then enter the date. In v7, simply enter today’s date in the Items Due On field.
  • For v6, under Selection still, enter tomorrow (or the next available school day) in the To Date; for v7, got to the Options tab and enter the New Due Date.
  • Run the utility.

This will find all items due today, and update their due date.

Just to be safe, before running this utility, you could run a Loaned Items report for all items due today, so you know exactly which item/patron check-outs you will be changing.
