I believe some patron-oriented permissions will auto-override, but it won't 
remember secondary authentication to do so. So if you have the override 
permissions already some of the overrides should be able to be remembered for 
that session.

The person doing the checkouts not having permission would be more of an issue, 
but using "Operator Change" to switch to the higher permission person could 
alleviate the repeated password entries at least.

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Repeated Override Entry


    Sometimes our libraries have occasion to check out a large number of 
materials in succession to a patron who may have an issue. An example would be 
PATRON_EXCEEDS_FINES. In our system, if someone with low permissions is logged 
in, the override must be entered for each item which can be burdensome if there 
are a large number of items. If someone with higher permissions is logged in, 
Force This Action must be clicked off for each item. Can Evergreen 2.9 be 
configured so that, once the override is entered once, it is in effect for the 
rest of the checkouts? Or once Force This Action is clicked, it does not need 
to be repeated for the rest of the checkouts? Or would this require development?

Thank you,
