Activating the "Fast Patron Registration" form in Circulation 4/11/12
The patron form is actually a client file setting. It's generally packaged into the default client, but got missed this time around so I'll make a note to ask for it to be included next time.
To fix this, here's how:
1. Close the Shared Bib Aleph client completely.
2. From the Windows Start menu, navigate to My Computer --> Local Disk (C:). Here's the file path: C:\AL500_SBXXTEST\Circ\tab\circ.ini (where "XX" is your two-letter institution code, e.g. UF, GC, etc.)
3. Open the circ.ini file in Notepad. Go to the [Patron] section and change FastPatronRegistration to Y:
[Patron] PictureDirectory=C:\Temp FastPatronRegistration=Y FilterProfileByLibrary=N
4. Save the file.
5. On reopening the Aleph Shared Bib client, she should get the usual patron registration form, rather than the Global Information form.
Patron cleanup underway 3/23/12
Details are listed on the page linked above. Jennifer will follow up with each institution as their patron "purge" is run so that they can review results in conjunction with FCLA.
