How to: Backdate a discharge transaction

When you backdate a discharge, Voyager uses the backdated date as the discharge date for the transaction, affecting the accrual of fines/fees.

Known Issue: Call slip filled by system (Due to staff override)

Known Issue: If all of the criteria explained below are met, sometimes a call slip can be filled by the system (because library staff perform an override that gives permission outside the call slip client).

Background Information:

I-Share Call Slips during Winter Break

With the end of the semester and holiday closures fast approaching, all I-Share libraries need to remember to extend the dates for all of your library’s call slip queues to cover the days your library will be closed.
 
The more libraries that follow the directions in the Best Practice, the better service all patrons receive.

How To: Removing Item Temporary Locations and Item Types from Reserves Items

I can’t change or remove the reserve location of an item record in cataloging? What’s wrong?

(posted 11/14/2016)
If the “Temp. Loc.” and “Temp. Type” fields are grayed out for the item record in Voyager Cataloging, this means the item record is on an active reserve list for Voyager Circulation.

How To: Manage Old "In Transit-Discharged" or "In Transit-On Hold" Item Statuses

Overview

Both the "In Transit-Discharged" and "In Transit-On Hold" item statues are an integral part of Voyager's internal functionality. These two statuses are used by Voyager to facilitate the shipping of library materials from one location or one library, to another. Voyager expects the system to work as a closed loop; when an item is not processed following the workflow that Voyager expects, some of the In Transit statuses can linger in the system. The steps below discuss how to clear old, lingering In Transit statues.

Voyager 9.1.1 and Windows 10

February 24, 2016; Revised August 30, 2016

As noted on the Voyager Version 9.1.1 System Requirements page, Ex Libris only supports running Voyager client software on Windows Vista Business and Enterprise Editions, Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit, and Windows 8 32-bit or 64-bit. Using Voyager client software on other versions of Windows may work but would be considered "unsupported" by Ex Libris. If problems arise, their suggestion would be to run the software on supported versions of Windows.
