Update copy status from Check In / Item Status window

25

Have a popup menu option to select from Actions that will allow circ staff to quick-change an item's status without having to open up the Item Attribute Editor.  (Example: Rather than Damage out an item that can be repaired while clearing the dropbox, be able to immediately mark it Mending or Temporarily Unavailable.)

Re: Update copy status from Check In / Item Status window

We prefer not to have all staff accessing the Editor.  Having the ability to enter a temporary status (easilty accessible to all staff) that could be cleared by scanning the item back in would be a big time saver.

It didn't occur to me when I first saw this idea, but I'm wondering if the upcoming copy alert development, which should be available in 3.1, will address this need.

There are three main components to that project, one of which is giving circ staff the ability to add a temporary alert to a copy from the check-in or item status window. The alert can be configured to allow the user to apply a "Next Copy Status"  to that item while adding the alert. That copy status can be one of the stock Evergreen statuses or a custom status used on that system.

I'll leave this idea here for now because it's not exactly the same functionality, but it would be good to revisit this after people have an opportunity to use the new feature.
