    Translatable
    To waive fines in bulk, you must have one of the following roles:
    • User Manager
    • User Administrator
    The Bulk Fine Waiving page enables you to waive user fines in bulk based on user group, type of fine, and maximum fine. To waive fines of specific users, see Waiving and Disputing User Fines or Fees.

    To remove fines in bulk:
    1. On the Bulk Fine Waiving page (Administration > User Management > Bulk Fine Waiving), specify the following fields.
      • Maximum fine threshold to waive – The maximum allowable fine to waive.

        If the total amount of a user’s fines is greater than the threshold, none of the user’s fines is waived.

        For example:
        • A patron’s Maximum fine threshold to waive = $120
        • The patron has fines of $10, $50, and $70
        Since the total of the patron’s fines exceeds the Maximum fine threshold to waive value, none of the fines is waived.
      • Exclude user with overdue loans – Whether to exclude users who have overdue loans.
      • User Group – The user groups in which to waive jobs.
      • Waive fine types – The types of fines that you will allow to be waived.
      • Waiving reason – The reason for waiving the fine. For example, you may want to waive fines accrued by your faculty.
