Libraries can now set patron services parameters to automatically update the circulation status of lost or missing items based on a specified period of time. Item records are updated (or not) according to the settings for the item’s assigned branch.
Recommendation: The transition period set by the Assigned Branch should be longer than any of the lost-and-paid recovery periods. This reduces the likelihood of an item being recovered after it has received a Withdrawn status. When determining if a particular item should be updated automatically, the day on which the job is run is not included.
