In the Manage Reservation window you can:
Click Manage Reservations.
All reservation transactions are displayed.
Click Show/Active to display only active reservations: A reservation is active when RESERVEDUNTIL is assigned and greater or equal to today's date.
Print or email reservation notices.
Activation of reservations is automatic. The program sets activation according to the reservation date when the reserved item is checked in.
The reservation activation for a selected item is updated when you delete or edit a reservation in the Manage Reservations or the Edit/View Reservations windows.
If a reservation is set for the future (RESERVEDON date greater than today's date) it will become active the same number of days ahead as it is set to be active for (DAYS number); for example, if a reservation is set to be active for 7 days it will be activated 7 days before its RESERVEDON date;
Click Show/Not Active to display only not active reservations. Reservations are not activated because items are loaned out or the reservation date (RESERVEDON) is set for the future date.
Click Show/Old to display old reservations. Reservations are old when RESERVEDON, AVAILABLEFROM, RESERVEDUNTIL are less than today's date (reservation was active and patron did not check out the item).
Review old reservations or use Delete Displayed Records on the Miscellaneous tab.
You can combine show options with the search. You can easily display all, active, not active, or old reservations for the selected item or member.
Advanced Search gives you unlimited flexibility with the way you could display and process reservations. For example if you manage specialized library, and you define many reservations for the future, and you want to process reserved items in advance before RESERVEDON day, you can easily do this.
