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. Hi Diane, I believe the setting in question relates to holds that were never captured. There is an email notification in EG called "Hold Expires from Shelf Soon" that alerts patrons when their captured holds have been sitting on the shelf too long. -b Thank you.

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 Regards, Galen -- Galen Charlton Infrastructure and Added Services Manager Equinox Open Library Initiative phone: 1-877-OPEN-ILS (673-6457) email: g...@equinoxinitiative.org web: https://equinoxInitiative.org direct: +1 770-709-5581 <tel:%2B1%20770-709-5581> cell: +1 404-984-4366 <tel:%2B1%20404-984-4366>
