New features & Enhancements

Acquisitions

New features

  • 33105 Add vendor issues

    For vendors who, in particular, provide electronic services (e.g. eJournal providers) it is useful to be able to record service issues.

    This new feature allows for recording such details, for example logging login problems, service interruptions and incorrect availability.

    This is important as evidence when submitting contract negotiations and judging vendor performance against existing contracts.

  • 20755 Allow separate email configuration for acquisition and serials emails

    This enhancement adds four new system preferences:

    • AcquisitionsDefaultEMailAddress
    • AcquisitionsDefaultReplyTo
    • SerialsDefaultEMailAddress
    • SerialsDefaultReplyTo

    These are used to set specific email addresses to send and receive replies to acquisitions orders notices, late orders claims notices and late serial issues claims notices.

  • 28449 Link from basket summary to invoice for an order line

    This adds a new column ‘Invoice’ to the table of order lines on the basket summary page. It contains the invoicenumber for received order lines and is linked to the invoice if the staff user has the edit_invoices permission.

    Sponsored by The Research University in the Helmholtz Association (KIT)

  • 31631 Optionally choose for tax-exclusive values to be used for calculating fund values (spent, ordered)

    Public and tertiary libraries in New Zealand can claim tax back on purchases.

    This enhancement adds a new system preference CalculateFundValuesIncludingTax.

    When set to ‘Exclude’ these libraries can input order prices with tax included (so vendor invoice prices – which do contain tax – can be entered directly into Koha).

    However, the order prices removed from the Koha funds are the tax exclusive values (NZ libraries claim tax back so it should not be removed from their funds).

  • 34169 Add validation for monetary input fields in acquisition module

    At the moment Koha can only calculate with amounts that are formatted with a decimal comma, but inputs were not always validated which could lead to errors and wrong amounts. Now entered amounts are validated before saving throughout the acquisitions module.

    This adds a new column to the suggestions table for the non-public note.

Enhancements

  • 29732 Check alert in cataloguing authorities should be a static message
    This patch changes the way error form validation error messages are displayed when editing authority records. Instead of a JavaScript alert, errors are now shown on the page itself, with links in the message to take you to the corresponding field.

  • 35198 Sort database column names alphabetically on automatic item modification page

Circulation

New features

    This feature makes it possible to use library groups for creating floating groups. It adds a checkbox “Is local
    float group” to the library groups configuration and a new return policy “Item floats by librarygroup” to the circulation conditions.

    Sponsored by Koha-Suomi Oy

  • 29002 Add ability to book items ahead of time

    This lays the foundations for item bookings in Koha.

    An item can be made ‘bookable’ via the item modification screens; Once at least one item is bookable, a new “Place booking” button will appear as an option on the bibliographic record detail page and a “Bookings” tab will be available from the side menu to allow management of bookings.

    Bookings cannot overlap, and circulation will detect when an item has a booking on it and notify the librarian appropriately.

    Note: There are many further enhancements in the pipeline still to come.

Enhancements

  • 8367 How long is a hold waiting for pickup at a more granular level

    This enhancement adds a new value to the circulation rules: ‘holds pickup period’. It overrides the value set in the ReservesMaxPickUpDelay system preference and allows setting different delays for specific item type, patron category, and library combinations.

  • 21159 Update item shelving location (952$c) on checkout

    This enhancement enables libraries to automatically update an item’s shelving location using the new system preference UpdateItemLocationOnCheckout.

    It accepts pairs of shelving locations. On checkout the item’s location is compared to the location on the left and, like UpdateItemLocationOnCheckin, is updated to the location on the right.

    Special values for this system preference are:

    • ALL – used on left side only to affect all items, if it matches, but this is an easier to read option)
    • PERM – used on right side only to set items to their permanent location
      BLANK – used on either side to match on or set to blank (actual blanks will work)

    Syntax highlighting is used in the text area to make it easier to read, as is already possible when checking in items.

  • 25393 Create separate ‘no automatic renewal before’ rule

    This new circulation rule allows libraries to control the no renewal before behaviour at the auto and non-auto renewals level.

  • 25560 Define itemtype specific rules in the UpdateNotForLoanStatusOnCheckin system preference

    The UpdateNotForLoanStatusOnCheckin system preference is now more configurable: you can define rules to be applied to specific item types upon check-in.

    Add the item type code followed by a colon, and then on separate lines below define each notforloan value pair with leading spaces. Example:

    BK
    -1: 0

    You can use an ALL wildcard to target all item types. The ALL wildcard does NOT override item-type specific rules.
    Example:

    ALL:
    -1: 2

    If an item type is not defined in the UpdateNotForLoanStatusOnCheckin system preference, and there are no ALL rules defined, then items of that type will not have their notforloan status change on check-in, irrespective of their current notforloan value.

    This enhancement adds an option for automatic checkins, so that for any holds, it automatically fills the next hold and sends a notification to the patron that a hold is waiting.

    This option is set using the new system preference AutomaticCheckinAutoFill.

Patrons

New features

  • 12532 Copy guarantee email to guarantor (or redirect if guarantee has no email set)

    This new feature allows libraries to set email notices for guaranteed users to be copied to their guarantors.

    If the guarantee doesn’t have a valid email of their own, then enabling this feature will redirect the guarantee’s email notices to the guarantor.

    A new system preference, RedirectGuaranteeEmail, is introduced.

Enhancements

  • 12133 Guarantor requirements when registering a patron

    This enhancement makes two changes to guarantors and guarantees when registering a new patron:

    • A child patron must have a guarantor – this is controlled by

  • 15157 Cronjob to automatically restrict patrons with pending/unpaid charges

    Sponsored by Koha-Suomi Oy

  • 15504 Track Patron’s Last Activity

    This enhancement changes how tracking patron activities (and updating the borrowers.lastseen field) works – you can now select what patron activities to track.

    Previously, with TrackLastPatronActivity enabled, the borrowers.lastseen field was updated when one of the “hard-coded” activities occurred – you could not select what patron activities to track

    With this enhancement, you can now individually select the patron activities to track. The current trackable activities are:
    – All activities
    – Checking in an item
    – Checking out an item
    – Connecting to Koha using SIP and ILS-DI
    – Logging in (for both the OPAC and the staff interface)
    – Placing a hold on an item (added by bug 35027)
    – Placing an article request (added by bug 35030)
    – Renewing an item

    Notes:
    – If no activities are selected, then patron activity is not tracked and the borrowers.lastseen field is not updated.
    – The system preference TrackLastPatronActivity was renamed to TrackLastPatronActivityTriggers.

    – To enable, copy the block from debian/templates/koha-conf-site.xml.in to your instance’s koha-conf.xml file, remove comments, and restart.

Preservation

New features

  • 30708 Creation of a new ‘Preservation’ module

    Once a notice has been created with the module ‘Reports’ selected, you will have the option to run your report using the template.

  • 34456 Add the ability to download a template rendered report as a file
    This allows to create new download formats for reports using notice templates. You can create different file formats, specifying the file name and ending in the accordingly labelled field when setting up the notice.

Searching

Enhancements

  • 26468 Item search should include a way to limit by damaged
  • 33217 Allow different default sorting when click author links

    Authors and contributors in the detail pages are linked to search for more materials of the same persons or institutions. Before this patch, these would use the normal default sorting, like relevancy, which isn’t as helpful for these results. The new system preferences AuthorLinkSortBy and AuthorLinkSortOrder now allow to change the sort order for these links specifically.

Searching – Elasticsearch

Enhancements

  • 33353 Add compatibility with Elasticsearch 8 and OpenSearch 2

    These changes to support ElasticSearch 8.x and OpenSearch 2.x come with a loss of support for ElasticSearch 6.x.

    Existing instances will have to upgrade to either ElasticSearch 7.x or 8.x or OpenSearch 1.x or 2.x

    Upgrade from ES 7.x or OS 1.X to ES 8.x or OS 2.x require a reindexation.

Staff interface

Enhancements

  • 14156 Add id tags to each MARC note in the display

    This enhancement adds id and class tags to each MARC note in the description tab for the staff interface bibliographic detail page.

    It adds a unique id for each note (for unique styling of each repeated tag), and a general and unique class for each tag (for consistent styling across the same tag number). An example of the HTML output:

    ><p id="marcnote-500-2" class="marcnote marcnote-500">...</p>
    >

    Styles can be defined for notes and individual tags in the IntranetUserCSS system preference – see the test plan for an example.

System Administration

Enhancements

  • 27424 One should be able to assign an SMTP server as the default

    We have been able to define SMTP servers in the staff interface for a while now. But to utilize them you had to set the SMTP server for each library individually. With this you can now chose to apply an SMTP server as default to all your libraries.

  • 29822 Use table column selection modal for DefaultPatronSearchFields preference
    This enhancement changes the DefaultPatronSearchFields system preference from an input field where field values separated by a comma are entered, to a modal window listing all patron fields (non-selectable fields are greyed out).

    This makes it much easier to set the standard fields for patron search, and helps avoid breaking the patron search when incorrect field values are entered.

    It:
    – Adds a hint on the inventory tool page under ‘Optional filters for inventory list or comparing barcodes’ section.
    – Clarifies the message in the ‘Problems’ column: from ‘Unknown not-for-loan status’ to ‘Items has no not for loan status’.

    If one or more not for loan values (Optional filters for inventory list or comparing barcodes > items.notforloan) are selected, and an item is scanned that has no NFL status or an unselected NFL status, the error message was “Unknown not-for-loan status”. This could be interpreted as the item having an NFL status value that is not defined in the system, but that is not accurate. This is now clarified and the error message is now “Items has no not for loan status”.

  • 34964 Add descriptions for different HTML customization regions

    • record_on_hold: number of holds on the record

    This allows an ILS-DI client to know if a loaned item is already on hold by someone else, and how many holds there are.

  • 35008 ILS-DI should not ask for login with OpacPublic disabled

This can cause an issue for libraries that expect emails and SMS messages to be processed at specific times.

  • 31147 Recalls due date to the minute rather than 23:59 (23.11.00,23.05.02,22.11.08)

    The current recalls behaviour adjusts the due date of the most appropriate checkout based on the ‘recall due date interval’ circulation rule. It also adjusts the due time, which is buggy behaviour. The due date should be adjusted based on the circulation rule, but the due time should remain the same.

    – improves the display of the values by adding
    . a description/label
    . separators between repeated 530 tags

    This fixes an issue with the term highlighter which is used during catalog searches in both the OPAC and the Staff interface. Under certain conditions (searching for titles containing characters with Greek diacritics), the jQuery term highlighter would break and in the process make the “Highlight” / “Unhighlight” button disappear altogether.

  • 33971 Remove support for x-koha-query header (23.11.00)
    This patch removes support for the x-koha-query HTTP header. The implementation was problematic because no URL/Base64 encoding was being expected, and it broke things. As it didn’t have real usage in the codebase, we decided to remove it.

    It could eventually be restored if there was interest on it, but it wouldn’t work as before anyway, because of the aforementioned issue with non-ASCII queries.
