Learn how to mark days as closed in the calendar in Amlib.

Calendar dates

It is possible to mark days to be ‘closed’ in the calendar. Days showing as red on the calendar have been set as closed.

Clicking a red date will cause the explanation to appear in the status line at the base of the screen. When an item is issued, the program will ensure that it the item is not due for return on closed dates. Reservations will not be due for collection on closed dates. Dates may be entered as far in advance as desired.

  2. To mark a date as a closed day, single click the date and Select F2 Set
  3. Type a suitable description in the dialogue box and OK
  4. Then F3 Update
    Where a Return By date falls on a closed date, the system allocates the next non closed date past that date
