Change due date

Learn how to change due date during and after checkout.

You can override the automatically-calculated due date for an item during or after checkout. Unlike when you renew an item, there is no limit to the number of times you can change the due date for item.

Change due date during checkout

When checking out items to a patron, optionally you can change the default due date.

  1. In the left panel Assist Patrons area, scan or type the patron barcode in the Enter barcode box. If you type the number, click Go or press <Enter>. The Checkout tab of the patron record appears.
  2. In the workspace, click Set 'Due Date' to the right of the Enter Barcode box. Type the new date in the Due Before Date box. Or click the calendar widget and click a date to select it.
