Created attachment 78312 [details]
this is what Koha produces from a patron list of 3 people when only 1 could be deleted.

Currently, the patron deletion tool will not delete patrons who has fines and/or checkouts.  Unfortunately, the tool does not indicate the patrons that were not deleted because of these constraints.  It would be nice to have Koha identify the # of patrons that were requested to be deleted, the number of patrons successfully deleted (with possibly a list) and the number and specifics of the patrons that could not be deleted due to checkouts/fines. This would give clear indication what was accomplished with this tool for libraries.  The current functionality of entering patrons that have checkouts/fines that have been requested to be deleted, Koha all but ignores those patrons and doesn't say anything.  For example, if I had a patron list of 3 patrons and I requested Koha delete this entire list of patrons.  If 2 of those patrons had fines/checkouts, Koha would only display 1 patron deleted.  This would not be a link to the patron that was deleted - just a simple number.  

In addition, the manual does not have correct information regarding this tool - as it indicates - this is quoted from the 17.11 manual : 


Patrons with outstanding fines or items checked out are not saved. They are not completely removed from the system (they are only moved to the delete_borrowers table), but this tool does not provide as many checks as one may desire."

I marked this one as duplicate of 24483 even though it's newer because the title is more specific and the description has a test plan.
