on holds waiting report you click cancel and it tells you that there is a hold for someone else the button below that says submit query which isn't helpful and it doesn't present you with the option to confirm or cancel the hold or a way to print a slip -- all things that are needed in this scenario
A complete and proper fix would be to display the hold confirmation window right on this page, just as it might appear on the check-in or transfer screen.
A quick and easy fix might be to include a link which passes the barcode number to the check-in page. Then the hold confirmation screen would only be one click away.
I'm up for a correct fix :)
Kyle, you've got comparable functionality for automatically cancelled holds waiting for another signoff over on bug 14364. Could that work be expanded to cover manually-cancelled waiting holds?

Bug 4948: When cancelling a waiting hold on returns.pl, looks for new hold to fill without rescanning barcode
1) Place two or more holds on a record
2) Check in the item
3) Confirm the hold
4) Check in the item again
5) Cancel the hold
6) Koha should now display the modal asking to confirm the next hold
without the need to rescan the barcode!
