Description Nicole C. Engard 2010-07-06 20:33:31 UTC
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?
