Patron Notes



Notes can be used to keep track of information about patron accounts or, when the note is patron visible, communicate some information to the patron.

ALERT! When the issue prompting the note has been resolved, delete the old note!

ALERT! Existing notes cannot be edited. If there a correction needs to be made, the note must be deleted and a corrected note added.

ALERT! New notes are added to the end of a list of notes.

Staff Visible

By default, all notes are Staff Visible only - this means they can only be viewed from within the Staff Client.

Patron Visible

Staff can select that a specific note is Patron Visible, which means that it will appear in the patron's OPAC Account.
