Hi Diane,

Yes, you could retrieve each patron in a different browser tab and flip between the classes. I think there are a couple of ways you could do this fairly efficiently so you don't have to search teachers or scan teacher barcodes during each visit.

- Add a bookmarks folder on your toolbar, and then add a direct link to each teacher account in that folder. When you go to the school, use the Open All option on the bookmarks folder to open each teacher in a new tab. This option is available in Chrome. I imagine Firefox has a similar option. Many thanks to Rogan Hamby for coming up with this idea!

- Add each of the teachers to a user bucket. Pull up the user bucket when you visit the school. Ctrl-click each barcode to open each patron in a separate tab.

A nice wishlist item that we might want to add to LP is a retrieve-all option in the user bucket so that you can retrieve all of those patrons in fewer clicks.

I hope this helps!

Good morning –

When our bookmobile visits school, students from more than one class come onto the bookmobile at the same time. In XUL, staff keep several teacher accounts open at once so that they can flip between classes as they serve patrons.

Is there a way to do the same thing in Webby without creating permanent tabs for each teacher at each school – which, of course, we can’t do because the Favorites bar isn’t long enough?

Thank you.
