Hmm.. Going to have to backstep on that serials info I just sent out. I am not getting issues to check in using the web client ("Failed to save issuance").

Due to many staff being out, I installed the staff client as well so all staff are still using that until I do some training. But I'm using the web client on my computer to get familiar with it. 1. I know receipt templates will need to be recreated manually. Are there any other similar configuration-related gotchas? None that I've encountered. 2. Can Serials and Acquisitions be used? I can only speak for Serials (I don't use Acq, ever). I haven't created a new subscription from scratch, but I am using it for daily addition of issues. It works, but the way fields render is... funky. Many of the text boxes and drop-down menus are just too small. For example, in the Quick Receive screen, the box for entering the Call Number is so short that it only shows a few characters, even when the browser is maximized: [cid:image001.jpg@01D35173.16708C80] What I've found is that shrinking the browser until it pops into this style works much better for readability (which tells me the web client is going to look great on a tablet!): [cid:image002.jpg@01D35173.16708C80] Aside from that, I've done some stumbling around to find options simply because it's a new-to-me interface. Some poking is required, unlike the circ mod which is so familiar even in its new form, so I wouldn't recommend using Serials unless you're open to putting in more effort (and deep breaths). 3. Have you discovered any serious problems? The only big issue we've encountered so far is related to reports not running and/or link to generated reports broken, but that is not web client related. I recommend using the web client when you have patience, and keep the staff client available for when you just need to do something quick and/or without using as much brain power. I'm sure I'll quickly figure out the web client and the staff client will look foreign to me (as happened when I looked back at our old ILS prior to Evergreen). Bravo to all who have been working on this! -Holly From: Open-ils-general [mailto:open-ils-general-boun...@list.georgialibraries.org] On Behalf Of scott.tho...@sparkpa.org<mailto:scott.tho...@sparkpa.org> Sent: Monday, October 30, 2017 4:34 AM To: Evergreen Discussion Group Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Web Client and 3.0 Hi, Is anyone using the web client in production against 3.0? If so, I have a few questions: 1. I know receipt templates will need to be recreated manually. Are there any other similar configuration-related gotchas? 2. Can Serials and Acquisitions be used? 3. Have you discovered any serious problems? Thank you, Scott Scott Thomas Executive Director PaILS / SPARK (717) 873-9461 scott.tho...@sparkpa.org<mailto:scott.tho...@sparkpa.org> Stay informed!
