Polaris Post: 03/29/2016

Good afternoon!

Another post will be coming in the near future, as I work to implement other policy changes, but today's Polaris Post is a special edition to alert libraries of the changes coming regarding notices.
P&P > Lend and Send > Overdue Notices
As voted in System Council on 03/22/2016, all notices (overdues and bills) are now sent by the patron library.  This change is effective Wednesday March 29, 2016.
The notices process remains otherwise unaffected (you still get the weekly emails on Wednesday with files to print/mail out).  The Lost Item reports are available to aid libraries in keeping track of lost items.
Lost Items – 4 Month Bills: This is a list of items and patrons for a selected library where the item was due in a particular month.  For ease of use, the default time for due dates is 4 months ago.  You can change this to get reports for older or more recent months.  In addition, the default is for the selected library's items, but you can also see the bills for your patrons.

Lost Items – Recently Lost: This is a list of extant bills which were added in a given month.  By default, this is for items lost during the previous month.  You can look at bills added to patron accounts or items belonging to the selected library.  You can also change the time frame.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments.  Have a great day!
