Good morning -

This is interesting. Patrons at my branch usually pick up holds before they 
expire but I know that isn't true everywhere. An email or text reminder would 
be helpful.

Thank you.

I did some digging, and that setting is indeed not currently used.
However, it was used back in the JSPac days, where it specified at what point 
in time to apply a CSS style to the My Account holds list to highlight hold 
requests that are about to expire. It wasn't carried over into TPAC.

I'll leave it to others to file a bug in LP to either remove the setting or to 
reimplement it in TPAC.

As a side note, I tracked this down by using the following Git command to 
identify commits that included the setting's code:

  git log -S "circ.hold_expire_alert_interval" --source
