13:52 brendan good morning #koha
13:53 gmcharlt hi brendan
13:53 brendan heya gmcharlt -
13:54 brendan see you in less than a week !
13:55 gmcharlt indeed
14:01 hdl_laptop hi gmcharlt howdy ?
14:01 gmcharlt hi hdl_laptop
14:21 brendan hey hdl_laptop
14:53 pianohacker In the "Gmail ads are freakishly accurate" category: now getting adds for alongside koha mailing list messages
15:02 pianohacker Is anyone familiar with the area of Plano where the conference will be held?
15:15 jwagner Unless I'm missing something obvious, there does not appear to be a way to turn off holds altogether.  You can block things like on-shelf holds, and specify no holds allowed for item types, but you can't stop the "place hold" option from appearing.  I'm thinking of a couple of sysprefs to disable holds entirely in staff and OPAC -- if the sysprefs are set, the "place hold" option doesn't appear on the screen.  Is this the best way to approach things?  An
15:17 jwagner (obviously would require template modifications as well)
15:24 brendan RequestOnOpac -- seems to turn it off for the OPAC, but I don't see a sys preference for the Staff side...  All though - the RequestOnOpac does not remove the place a hold link on the reults list only on the item details...
15:34 jwagner brendan, yes that's part of the problem -- the link shows up various places even though policies don't allow holds.  What I'm thinking is to modify all the OPAC templates to not display the link if the syspref is set.  Also create a syspref & modify templates on the staff side -- if the library doesn't allow holds, we don't want staff members mucking around trying to place them anyway.
15:35 brendan :)
17:23 atz jwagner: actually, some libraries might use staff requests as part of their workflow
17:23 atz w/o allowing patrons to place holds
17:25 jwagner atz, that's why it should be two separate sysprefs so holds could be turned off in the OPAC and/or the staff interface separately.  That's what I was looking at, anyway.  Sound workable?
17:27 atz yeah, makes sense
17:27 jwagner OK, I'm going to work on it whenever I have some mythical free time....
17:27 atz 2013
17:28 atz ... maybe sooner.
17:28 jwagner Nah, maybe more like 2019 or 2020....  I think I had some free time once, but I forget what it was like :-(
19:21 chris morning
