    Why does it take several days for item status to change after discharge?

    When we discharge an item at one of our Circulation locations, it is several days before the status changes from Discharged to Not Charged. Is there a way to make that happen faster?


    Yes. The change from Discharged to Not Charged is controlled by the circulation location's Shelving Interval in System Administration. You can set this interval to approximately reflect the time it takes for an item to reach it's home on a shelf after discharge.

    System Administration > Circulation > Policy Definitions > [policy] > Edit > Locations > [circulation location] in the Shelving Interval setting.

    You can set any number from 0-999 with an interval of minutes, hours or days.
