---- Reported by mdhafen@tech.washk12.org 2006-05-31 05:57:47 ----

A little code could remove one click from the circulation process.
My idea is like this: if a barcode is entered and not copy found associated with that barcode, then circulation could check if a patron is associated with that number instead.
Switching patrons would be as easy as entering the patrons cardnumber straight into the copy barcode input field.  This would work as long as cardnumbers and barcodes where never the same.

neat idea, could perhaps be implemented in a future version as a separate global nav filter with new template designs.

Hmm I wonder if you want to have a go at ressurecting this Michael?

I'm not really fond of this feature.  If there is any overlap at all between copy barcodes and patron barcodes this feature breaks.  So I'd be fine with this feature dieing.
