We are new to Evergreen, and we are trying to set our serials up using serial 
control.  I have a quarterly, with seasons, where the calendar change occurs 
with the Winter issue.  So that Fall 2016 is followed by Winter 2017.  I have 
made multiple attempts at creating a prediction for this title, but no matter 
what I do, Evergreen insists on predicting the issues as Fall 2016, Winter 
2016, Spring 2017, Summer 2017, Fall 2017, Winter 2017, etc., when it should be 
Fall 2016, Winter 2017, Spring 2017, Summer 2017, Fall 2017, Winter 2018, etc.

I've checked Launchpad to see if there were any reported bugs related to this 
problem and I could not find any.  I've also looked at the Evergreen wiki and 
Sitka sites for pattern suggestions, and I haven't found a solution there 
either, although I may have missed something.  In both of our former systems, 
the pattern for this was easy to set up, although neither system used the same 
method for creating patterns that Evergreen does.

There ought to be a way to do this, since it's a common pattern, but so far I 
haven't been able to figure it out in Evergreen.  We need to get it working, 
because we will have more serials like this.  Does anyone have a pattern that 
works for when the publication is quarterly with seasons and the year changes 
with the Winter issue instead of the Spring issue?

Here is one attempt I made.  I can't figure out why it doesn't work.  The 
volume number does correctly change with the Winter issue, but the year does 
not.  All suggestions welcome!


Our former system also allowed us to alter predicted issues.  If Evergreen 
would let us do that, we could at least manually change the predicted issues to 
the correct information, but I can't find a way to do that either.  If there is 
a way to change individually predicted issues, please let us know.
