---- Reported by wizzyrea@gmail.com 2009-06-19 17:34:29 ----


Library 1 has a patron who has 5 books checked out (A, B, C, D, E). We have three branches in our system(1, 2, 3).

A is an item from library 1 (the local branch) with no holds.
B is an item from library 2, with no holds.
C is an item from library 1 with a queued hold at library 2.
D is an item from library 2 with queued holds at library 3.
E is an item from library 1 with queued holds at library 1.

When all items are returned via Return All:
Item A is returned normally (ok)
Item B is returned, but transfer is initiated without staff notification (problematic, but merely annoying)
Item C is returned, but nothing happens. A transfer to fill the hold at Library 2 should be initiated, but is not. Koha checks it in and changes the current location to library 1. (very problematic)
Item D similar to item C, the item is orphaned at Library 1. (very problematic)
Item E needs more testing at this time, but wanted to get this bug submitted. Will add comment to elaborate.


Return ALL items on the patron detail page does not work well with holds/multiple branches.

Proposed ways to fix this:
RETURN ALL items presents each item in sequence to deal with individually (confirm/transfer/return home). Seems clunky.

RETURN ALL items presents all items in an ajax-y way to click click click confirm/transfer/return home). Less clunky, but still... eh.

Other ideas? I'm drawing a blank.
