Questions: How can I add fields to the Manage Loans window. Our librarian wants to be able to look at the category so she can see if the item is on the shelf before she sends out reminders. Having to go back into the main window to look that information up seems rather cumbersome. We may consider upgrading to the current version if the feature is added, but I couldn't find it in the trial version. IT Volunteer

I want to create a report with the overdue books, the date due and the call number. I don't see the CALL number as a field I can use in the report. I do see DEWY, but I have put all my CALL numbers in the CALL field. Is there a way I can copy all of my CALL numbers into the DEWY field automatically so I can show that when I run the report?
