About transaction history

The system retains circulation transactions (check ins, check outs, etc.) related to items and patrons when transaction history is stored. This setting is optional and must be activated in OCLC Service Configuration (WorldShare Circulation > Admin/General > History). For more information on storing history, see History.

Transaction history is stored:

  • In the Transaction History section of the Item Details screen (item transaction history)
  • In the History tab of a patron account (patron transaction history)

For information on available reports, see Circulation reports.  

Modernized Interface: Notification History

Find a Notifications tab within the modernized interface on the item management screens for both WorldCat and temporary items. 

 Note:  These improvements are available exclusively in the modernized staff interface. Enable the Preview Features option to see these changes.

In the modernized interface, item notification history has one row for each email notification related to this item. View the date and time that the email was queued or sent, the notification type, the email address where the message was sent, and the status of the email. Open the Details panel to see the complete list of items that were included in each notification.

Filter the list of notifications by notification TypePatron, or by Status. Use the Show filters button to make or review your selected filter(s).

When filtering by patron, the system will search for data that is currently in the patron's user record so that you can select a patron record from the list. The default search option is patron Barcode, but you may select a different index such as Name and Identifier.
