Athenaeum Pro 2017 Changes

Circulation

List View

The circulation list view has had some subtle reworking. The new interface includes the vertical menus and a more condensed list view. Athenaeum Pro 2017 also more directly shows information about fees for each issue.

The utilities screen is now a pop-over over the list view:

Below the due date are three or four pop-over windows with information about the borrower, the item, the issue details with extra issue functions and, if a fee has been levied against that issue, information about the fee. Note that if there is no fee, no fee icon will be displayed.

As you might expect, the book item icon shows information about the item.

The gear widget icon shows information about the issue as well as buttons allowing you to return the issue, extend it, mark it as lost or add an ad-hoc fee for the issue.

The fee icon, if visible, shows the amount of the fee and a button to navigate to the details of that fee.

Detail View

The detail screen has been reworked to reduce clutter, though will be familiar to previous users of Athenaeum.

The fee and owing amount for any fee associated with the current issue are exposed on the issue detail tab.

Note that multiple fees may be applied for any issue. The “audit” tab will show a scrolling list of such fees.

Report Tweak

Overdue Slips

These will now include the replacement charge if you have “overdue letters include fees” set (admin->quick letters->overdue).

The fixed slips slightly reduce the width of the title and dewey display fields to squeeze these in.

The compact slip slightly less compact.
