Borrower and stockitem memo lists

Learn how to create a report based on both the Borrower and StockItem memo lists in Amlib.

It is possible to produce a report based on both the Borrower and Stockitem Memo lists.

Supervisor Settings

Memo Types – pre-formatted memos that can then be reported on – for both Borrowers and Stockitems can be set up in Supervisor module.

  1. Launch the Amlib client
  2. Open the Supervisor module
  3. Select LibraryMenu > MemoTypes – the Memo Types table will display:
  4. To insert a new Memo Type:
    1. Click the F1 New or F2 insert button – a new entry will appear in the table
    2. Type in a Memo Type – for example: NEWCARD
    3. Type in a Description – for example: Borrower Issued New card
    4. If you would like this Memo Type to be available as a Stockitems memo, then Valid for Holdings = Y
    5. If you would like this Memo Type to be available as a Borrower memo, then Valid for Members = Y
    6. Show as Default: If set to Y, then the memo will automatically display when the borrower or stockitem record is opened
    7. Expires n days time: this is the number of days you would like the memo to stay in the borrower or stockitem record before being automatically deleted – for example: 365 = 1 year
    8. Click the F3 Save button when complete
  5. Exit and restart the Amlib client for the new Memo Type to be available in the individual modules

Adding a Memo to a Borrower or Stockitem Record

  1. Launch the Amlib client
  2. Open the Borrower or Stockitem module
  3. Locate a record to which you would like to add a memo
  4. Select Borrower > Memos or Item > Memos (depending on the module you’re in) – the Memos for this Borrower/Stockitem table will appear
  5. To insert a new memo:
    1. Click the F1 New or F2 insert button – a new entry will appear in the table
    2. If you would like to use an existing Memo Type, then that should be entered first, as this will automatically populate most of the other fields. Use . <tab> to bring up the list of available Memo Types
    3. Double-click on a Memo Type Code to select it – the memo details will be added to the new entry and the Show, End Date, Type and Memo Details fields adjusted according to the default Memo Type details set up in the Supervisor module
    4. You may then adjust the Show (which will automatically display the memo when the record is opened if set to Y), End Date (the date you would like the memo to be automatically deleted) and Memo Details fields

      Note: When adjusting the Memo Details field, it is a good idea to add to existing text rather than overwriting it, as this will help with any searching – for example: Borrower Issued New card – as borrower changed surname
    5. Click the F3 Save button when complete
  6. To delete an existing memo:
    1. Highlight the entry in the table to be deleted
    2. Click the F4 Delete button – this will mark the memo for deletion
    3. Click the F3 Save button to remove marked memos from the list
