- Subject: protecting the new circactive field?
(crossposted to innocirc - apologies if you receive a duplicate)
I've just noticed that the new "Circactive" fixed field in patron records is NOT
automatically protected from being over-written when an incoming record matches
Even worse, when I try to add that field to our overlay protection list (system
options, database maintenance options, edit overlay protection list, patron
record) and choose Add a fixed length field, that the new CIRCACTIVE field
doesn't appear, so I can't even add it to the overlay protection table manually!
Has anyone else noticed this? And if so, is it just a case of getting Innovative
to add it to the list of fixed fields so I can then add it to our table
manually? Or do people agree that it really should be automatically protected
like several other fields? Wasn't the whole point of it that we could tell when
a record was last used for circulation rather than merely updated?!
