E 5: Resetting Due Date

Description:

Resetting due dates is done within the Items Out view of the Patron Status workform.

Note:

Please refer to sections D1: Patron Registration and Status Workforms Overview and B4: The Polaris Find Tool – Patron Records of the manual for information on how to search for patrons and how to access the Patron Status workform directly.

Instructions:

  1. From the Patron Status workform, click the Items Out view icon or select View, Items Out.

  2. This will yield the Items Out view of the Patron Status workform.



    Tip:

    For each check-out, the Item Barcode, Title, Author, Due Date, Call Number, Material Type, Renewals, and Assigned Branch is displayed.  The default order is by Due Date, however, check-outs can easily be reordered by clicking on the heading of the corresponding column.



  3.  If resetting the due date of a single item, select the item and click the Reset Due Date icon; or right-click and select Reset Due Date; or type CTRL+ALT+D.



  4. The Reset Due Date pop-up containing the current due date for the item will appear.



  5. Use the arrows to navigate through the months and select the appropriate date from the calendar.



  6. Click ‘OK’.
