Description Owen Leonard 2011-08-04 17:25:35 UTC
This minor change is being pulled from the batch of changes in Bug 5436 since it is unrelated to patron attributes.

This seems to be a matter of preference or library workflow, rather than a bug... changing this universally seems likely to displease as many as it would satisfy.

Could some libraries weigh in on this issue? Is the usual intended patron destination from the returns page the checkout page, or the patron's details?

Francois, laurence, Stéphane, Nicole,

What do you think of Ian's comment: when you're in return screen, do you think we should always return to patron page when we click on patron's name, or we should reach check-out page ?

I agree with Ian it can be discussed. But not discussed forever : if we can't find an agreement, then we let things like they are today

oups, sorry, I didn't wanted to set "passed QA", please answer question 1st !
Comment 6 Owen Leonard 2011-10-07 15:35:04 UTC
I'll copy here my comment on Bug 6905:

In all other places in Koha the templates make an arbitrary decision about
which page to link to--circ or detail page. 

I would say let's set up a preference which would be more or less global: a
"PatronDefaultView" preference to match the BiblioDefaultView one.
Comment 7 Ian Walls 2011-10-19 18:06:16 UTC
I endorse Owen's proposal; it will give us the more consistency across the system, and empower libraries to optimize their workflows.  Either this bug report will need to be altered to cover this new plan, or a new bug report will need to be filed for this feature.
Comment 8 Paul Poulain 2011-10-24 11:40:11 UTC
Updating version : This ENH could be in Koha 3.8
Comment 9 Paul Poulain 2011-10-25 15:05:37 UTC
Bug versionned for master. entries will be made against rel_3_8 once the patch has been applied (see thread about that on koha-devel yesterday)
Comment 10 Marcel de Rooy 2011-11-14 11:44:09 UTC
From the above discussion I conclude that we are waiting on a new patch introducing such a preference. In the meantime I change the status to Failed QA in order to keep the signoff queue clean.
