It would be really nice if the "CircConfirmItemParts" added in bug 25261 wasn't all or nothing.
We'd like to be able to force confirm on kits, hotspots, and book club kits but not on DVDs and Audiobooks. All of these have materials specified in our catalog.
Hitting confirm on each DVD and audio check in and out would make our workflows much slower, but we'd like to be able to do it for some items still.
Maybe there could be an option in the item type setup to exclude item types from the confirmation?
+1 on this! This is a great new feature, but it's really easy to come up with scenario's like Lisette's in which a library would like this for only certain item types, collections, etc. Being able to turn this on/off per itype would be a great next step.
We'd also love to be able to limit the verification to just checkin, as opposed to both checkin and checkout. We work on the assumption that if an item's been checked in, then it's been checked for all its parts and so we don't need to do that again when checking the item out. It also prevents items with multiple parts from being checked out by patrons at the self-checks, which can be irritating for them.
Yes!!! 1) Re: Lisette; control feature via itype or ccode would be helpful. 2) We use/want this at check-in. We, too, operate assuming the item is good to go at check-out, so confirmation is unnecessary. But having a toggle to decide if we'd like it to operate at only check-in, or only check-out, or both would be a great "feature."
This would be an extremely helpful feature! Agree with the group that limiting by itemtype would be the preferred way to do this.
