When the word "user" is included in a default value in a MARC subfield structure of a tag in a framework, the surname of he user login creating record is inserted in the place of the word "user."
Create the deafualt value in the framework
-In MARC frameworks.
-Select a MARC structure of any framework to edit.
-Select the subfields to edit.
-Select the Edit Subfields button.
-Select Display more constraints of any subfield tab.
-Include "user" in the default value.
(make sure hidden is st to 0).
Create a new record
-In Cataloging, select New Record with the edited framework
-Go to the tag with the default value.
-The surname of the user with which you create the new record will be in the tag in the place of user.
Hm I am not sure user = surname makes sense to me - what if you have more than one staff member with the same surname? and why not use surname as the keyword?
I think for 'user' i would expect the username (opac login) to be inserted in the record.
I think that this is related to http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=7045
Hello, this is still an issue for libraries. We would like to be able to use the actual text "user" without it transforming into the surname of the librarian modifying the record.
