It would be great if the patron who requested the book is automatically put on the hold list for the book so that they can be the first to receive the book they requested - it also means that they know when the book has arrived.  Read enhancement request 1886 for example of this.

I think it would be nice to add a hold option to the suggestion form in OPAC.
Let the patron decide, if he wants to get the book once it has been acquired.
Comment 2 Katrin Fischer 2011-10-04 14:27:53 UTC
Updating bug - placing a hold for the suggesting patron is not possible in 3.4 and not in the queue for 3.6. 

(16:23:08) kf: wizzyrea: what about a checkbox 'place a hold for me on this suggeston'?
(16:23:18) kf: in the suggestion form? in opac especially
(16:23:28) wizzyrea: that is another great idea
(16:23:36) wizzyrea: or "if this item is acquired, place a hold"
(16:23:41) wizzyrea: but you'd have to be using acquisitions
(16:23:54) wizzyrea: or have a way to link the suggestion to an eventual bib outside of acquisitions
Comment 3 Wendy Sharkey 2016-01-15 16:18:22 UTC
This seems like a good idea to me and would solve the disconnect between suggestion and hold.
Comment 4 Barbara Johnson 2019-06-09 16:36:58 UTC
Automatic holds for suggestions would make our patrons very happy.  We use staged files to import our orders so we would need a connection between acquisitions and suggestions (similar to request in bug #19538)
Comment 5 Barbara Johnson 2019-06-10 19:57:30 UTC
That should have been bug #19358
