Description Chris Cormack 2010-05-21 01:16:23 UTC

---- Reported by jransom@library.org.nz 2009-12-10 21:45:33 ----

When registering or updating a patron, should be able to enter in the number of days advance notice to be given, and digests only. The fields are there but no way of editing them.

Ahh, this is actually a probably setting up the notices.
There is no interface to set whether something is available by digest, or in advance, it has to be done in the database currently.

If they are set, then you can interact with them fine in the members page.

So the bug is actually in the newsletters

There is still no way to specify those options (days in advance, digest) from the interface in current master.
The necessary sample data has been moved, so it's now mandatory on installation. Options could only be used with advance and item due notices so far. 
Can this bug be closed or should we leave it open for a better solution?

I am not sure if I understand this bug report correctly - but I think this is working alright.

Which notices can be sent out as digests or in advance is hardcoded, as it needs to be implemented in the code. When you install Koha with all mandatory information, this is set up correctly. Due and Predue notices have options for a digest version and only advance notices can be sent in advance.

You can define a standard setting by patron category and then change it for each patron during editing or updating.
