Description Katrin Fischer 2016-12-21 08:55:09 UTC
We had a library reporting that records show up on this report that haven't been checked out within the selected date range of checkout dates.

After looking at the script I think this is because it checks the timestamp column instead of the issuedate of old_issues.

In old_issues the timestamp is the date of return, so that's not right and explains the results the library reported.

Side note: the report does also not seem to count current checkouts as it avoids the issues table?

Bug 17801: Use issuedate for limits in Most Circulated Items

To test:
1 - Have two checkouts in old_issues
    issue 1: timestamp 2020-08-01 00:00:00, issuedate 2019-08-01 00:00:00
    issue 2: timestamp 2020-07-01 00:00:00, issuedate 2019-07-01 00:00:00
2 - Perform a Most Circulated Items search for checkout dates 2020-06-01 to 2020-09-01. Both checkouts appear in search
3 - Repeat search with checkout dates 2019-06-01 to 2019-09-01. Neither checkout appears in search
4 - apply patch, restart all
5 - Repeat search with checkout dates 2020-06-01 to 2020-09-01. Neither checkout appears in search
6 - Repeat search with checkout dates 2019-06-01 to 2019-09-01. Both checkouts appears in search

Indeed, timestamp can not be trusted.
Nice work ;)
