I am not sure that makes sense to have this new button in the toolbar. We already have a link to "Fines" in the left menu.
Or in "More"?

Moreover you should check if the logged in librarian has the borrowers permissions to display this button (CAN_user_borrowers)

Ccing Owen to get his opinion.

The experience from our library says the we absolutely need this - fines management is last bottleneck in our circulation proccess.
Yes, it can maybe live in "More", but I wanted to make this button split button, with posible values... so it would end with 2 clicks and 1 page reload less for inserting a fine manually...

But we never needed the button "Duplicate" on patron toolbar...

The best way could be to make the toolbars configurable, similar to table columns?

You are right, I'll

Good idea ;)

I could see the "Fines" button being a dropdown with "Pay fines," "Create manual invoice," and "Create manual credit." What would you have as the default action for a split button?

Whether or not "Create fine" becomes a button, menu, or "More" menu item I suggest that we also make "Edit" into a split button with "Duplicate" and "Add child" as the secondary actions.
