How to suspend borrower?

Librarian can set the status of the borrower to Suspended.

There are several ways to apply this status.

Questions:

How does the Active Status field work? What happens if I forget to type in Active in the status field of a library patron? Will they not be able to check out a book?

You only use this field when you want to suspend the borrower (it will display warnings when the suspended borrower is trying to process check outs). Status field value could be Suspended, Active, or empty. You can process all check out transactions for the selected borrower if the value of this field is empty or is set to Active.
