Description Katrin Fischer 2011-08-10 12:03:49 UTC
Created attachment 4930 [details]

When adding or modifying a patron with a patron category that is type 'organisation' an additioanl fieldset 'Organisation' with an empty field 'Organisation(s)' is displayed in the patron record.

I see no way to make use of this.

I linked a professional patron to my organisation, but the field stayed empty.
I tried adding a second organisation, but the field still stayed empty.

There is currently no way to link orgaisational patrons together in hierarchies - so why should we display a list of organisations there?

Perhaps this is a leftover from an earlier feature. As it seems not to be working it should be removed. And if there is a trick to make it work it should be documented.

Display problem fixed by patch for bug 6712 - underlying feature is currently broken and waits for reimplementation.
Comment 3 MJ Ray (software.coop) 2012-04-03 17:06:04 UTC
How should it work?

Is this about having patrons grouped into organisations grouped into institutions, or is it about having patrons grouped into institutions grouped into a hierarchy of organisations?

How was it broken? Just by not feeding the organisations to the template? As bug 6712 hid the feature, I'm not sure that I can test it easily.

If the display problem is fixed, isn't this bug fixed? If there is functionality which hasn't been implemented that belongs in another bug.
