Now that most of the libraries have gotten the latest upgrade, I'd like to share with you a little information about the RS Navigator.

The RS Navigator is located off of the Functions Menu in Patron. It is designed to allow Reader Advisors to view their Reader Services Queue, navigate to the desired patron record and serve the patron - all without having to use the Query function "Search My RSQue".

Bulk Delete Reserve

Subject: Bulk Delete Reserve
Date: 5/22/2006

In version 7, there is a means by which you can remove a few or a lot of requests and reserves from a patron's record, besides just deleting them individually.

First, find your patron, then switch to the Requests tab. On the bottom right of the screen, there are two buttons. Asg Item (Ctrl + G) will assign the highlighted request, if there are items available. The other button, Bulk Del Rsv, which stands for Bulk Delete Reserve, will allow you to set the criteria for removing requests and reserves. To get to this function using your keyboard, you'd need to access the Functions menu (Alt + U) and then select B three times (First B is Book search, the second is Book Club Maintenance and the third is Bulk Delete Reserve).
