Description Chris Cormack 2010-05-21 01:24:45 UTC

---- Reported by jwagner@ptfs.com 2010-02-22 19:22:41 ----

Sponsored by East Brunswick Public Library, East Brunswick, NJ, USA.

If a patron claims an item has been returned, the library does not want to keep accruing fines.  This enhancement does not accrue fines after the date the item is marked claims returned, unless the item is found and checked in.  At that point, fines catch up to the current date.  This enhancement uses a new LOST authorized value, and enters the numeric of that value into a new syspref called ClaimsReturnedValue.  The fines cron job checks that syspref; if it is set and if an item has that lost value, fines aren't added during the nightly run.

There is no claims returned value in current versions of Koha.
Comment 2 Katrin Fischer 2016-06-19 22:12:54 UTC
Opting for the new bug in this case, as it's active and has more CC entries.
