Allowing 'On Hold"

Hi,
I'm wanting my patrons to be able to place an 'on hold' on books.
I've gone to settings> circulation> enable place hold button > save

then go to a book page and an 'on hold' option is just not showing!
What else do I need to do?
Thanks
Erin

Hi Erin,

I'm glad you asked! To enable self-checkout, you'll need to enable patron accounts on TinyCat. There's one of two types of patron accounts you can have: either Simple Circulation, where all the patrons share one common password, or Full Circulation, where each patron gets their own login.

You can enable patron accounts from your Patron Account Settings on your TinyCat's Admin portal: https://www.librarycat.org/admin/settings/patronaccounts (Help page here: https://wiki.librarything.com/index.php/TinyCat:_Settings_%C2%BB_Patron_Accounts....

You can check out our Tiny Tutorials covering these features on LibraryThing's YouTube channel, as well: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHdpcxqVcUR4rXciaInacPQ.

I hope this helps!
