Bulk renew subscriptions

Discover how to bulk renew subscriptions in WorldShare Acquisitions.

You can renew up to 3,000 order items at a time using a renewal list.  A subscription is an order for an item that is published in an ongoing manner (no end date) but typically purchased by period. It usually requires renewal by the purchaser at the end of the period.

Renewal lists allow you to renew order items from multiple vendors at one time and on multiple pages at one time. They also allow you to use the payment price as the basis of the new price for a renewed subscription item.

Renew order items from a renewal list

 Note: Items in a renewal list can only be renewed once. If a renewal list is processed with a renewal list status of Completed with Issues, you can resolve any unrenewed items and submit a new renewal list.

  1. On the left navigation, click Orders > Renewal Lists. All renewal lists appear.
  2. Search for or navigate to the renewal list for which you want to renew order items.
  3. Click the Renewal List Name to open the Renewal List screen.

  6. Click Renewal List Settings to open the accordion. The Renewal List Settings accordion allows you to select how you want to renew items in the renewal list. Renewal list settings are saved when you click Save or when you renew the renewal list (Actions > Renew Order Item(s)).
    1. From the Order Creation drop-down list, select how you want to create order groupings.
      • Create new orders based on previous orders (default) - The system uses the same structure, naming, and order types as was previously used for the orders and order item groupings.
      • Create one order per vendor - The system places all new order items on new order per vendor. Orders created using this method use the following naming convention: Subscription order - [Vendor Name] - [Date]
      • Add all items to one order - The system places all new order items on a single order that you created. If you select this grouping, you'll need to:
        1. Click Select Order. The Add New Order dialog opens.
        2. Select the radio button for the order that you want to use and then click Select. The order you selected will appear below the Order Creation drop-down list.

        3. Click Save. When you renew the renewal list, it will place all new order items on this order.
           Caution: All new items will be placed on a single order for a single vendor. If items on the renewal list are from multiple vendors, you will receive a warning. Consider selecting Create one order per vendor if you receive this warning.
    2. Select the Apply current exchange rate (for foreign orders) check box to automatically apply the current exchange rate after renewal. This is useful if the currency of the order differs from your institution's currency. By default, this check box is deselected.
    3. In the Price Increase section:
      1. For Increase Based on this Source Price, select one of the following options from the drop-down list:
        • Payment Price (default) - The amount of increase will be based on the payment price that appears in the original invoice. If there are no paid invoices for an item, the system will use the order price of the item being renewed as the price of the new item.
        • Order Price - The amount of increase will be based on the order price that appears in the original order.
      2. Enter a number (0-100) in the Amount of Increase text field if you anticipate the renewal price will exceed the original payment price.
        • You can assign a percentage value up to two decimal places (e.g., 8.75%).
        • Use the up and down arrows to increase or decrease the percentage by .01 at a time.
        • By default, the Amount of Increase is set to zero percent (0%).
      3. For Service charges, select the Apply percentage increase to service charges check box if you would like to apply the percentage increase used during the renewal of items to the service charge as well. This allows you to predict a more accurate price for your renewal items.

      • Inherit from Previous Item - This sets the receipt status of the item to the same status as the item being renewed.  
      • Not Received
      • Not Tracked
      • Partially Received
      • Received
    6. In the Encumbrances section, select the Clear any remaining encumbrances checkbox to clear any remaining encumbrance for the subscription items being renewed provided that the items are both Pay by the amount and have at least one invoice.
