Description Christopher Brannon 2016-10-26 19:18:06 UTC
We recently ran into an issue where old transactions were uploaded from offline circ.  This caused a BIG MESSS.  Mistakes will happen.

It would be great if there was a setting in Koha to limit the number of days old a file can be when uploaded.

Even better would be the ability to revert the operations completed by a .koc upload.
Comment 2 Liz Rea 2018-08-28 01:46:57 UTC
Or prevent duplicate files from being uploaded, period.
Comment 3 Christopher Brannon 2018-08-28 16:26:34 UTC
Perhaps a unique key should be included in the file, and Koha should keep track of these keys to show that it has been processed already.
Comment 4 Liz Rea 2018-08-28 23:00:49 UTC
The feature we brainstormed over (not at all a complete idea) was a feature rather like staged marc imports, but for KOC files.

i.e. you upload a file, it is staged, you can see what's in it and what will happen when it is applied. You can apply the file to the catalogue, and also have the option to reverse the actions it has taken, with full accounting in the case of fines.
