Description Nick Clemens 2019-06-18 17:54:19 UTC
When viewing the holds page for  biblio in the staff client it initially says:

'Suspend' until [date] - where suspend is a button and date is a datepicker

if you choose a date and hit 'suspend' it then says

'Unsuspend' on [date] - where unsuspend is a button and the date is the date set above, but offers a date picker

I read 'Unsuspend on date' as an option to set the date the hold will be unsuspended - not as 'Unsuspend now' with an irrelevant date displayed afterwards, which is how it seemingly functions.

Does this make sense to others in its current state?

I would propose:

'Suspend' until [date] - and if you set a date and click suspend it becomes

Suspended until [date] then a new column with 'Unsuspend' as a button

Display in catalogue should be like in patrons module :
- Use "Resume" instead of "Unsuspend"
- Use a modal for date entry
