Require or clear confirmation before taking immediate final actions

Discover how to require or clear confirmation before taking immediate final actions in Connexion client.

If you often batch-process records and want to prevent accidentally taking actions immediately, you can set an option to require confirmation for immediate actions on records:

  1. Navigate to Tools > Options or press <Alt><T><O>.
  2. Click the General tab.
  3. Click Action Options.
  4. Select or deselect the Warn before doing online actions immediately check box in the Action Options window. By default, the check box is not selected. The system does not send a confirmation message before online actions are completed.

     Note: You can also select an option to disable Update and Produce commands for records your library owns.

  5. Click OK to save your settings or Cancel to cancel changes. You are returned to the General tab.
  6. Click OK or press <Enter> to confirm changes and close the window.
    • With this option selected, when you click an action command for a record while logged on, the client opens a message requesting you to confirm before taking the action immediately online.
    • Final actions for bibliographic records are:
      • Update Holdings
      • Produce and Update Holdings
      • Delete Holdings
      • Submit for Review
      • Replace Record
      • Replace and Update Holdings
