Description Andrew Fuerste-Henry 2021-07-23 11:51:17 UTC
The syspref RestrictionBlockRenewing determines whether or not a restriction prevents renewal of an item via the intranet. There is not currently a way to allow patrons to renew their own items via the OPAC when restricted. For libraries applying restrictions automatically via the overdues process, this can be overly restrictive. Some libraries would prefer to give patrons the option of renewing on the OPAC, thereby clearing their own restriction.
