Undo Complete Loan

If you update a request as Complete Loan in error it is possible to undo the update.

Immediately after updating the request as Complete Loan, the Undo button is enabled.

  1. After clicking Undo, the following message displays:
    • Are you sure you want to undo the Complete Loan?  Yes | No
  2. Click Yes to reverse the update in Relais.
  3. The Complete Loan can be done again or another request retrieved. 

 Note:  If you are using NCIP, the Undo action does not reverse the CheckoutItem message that was sent when the Ship Loan was done and so the item must be checked into the local system manually.  

For a multi-volume loan, undo each item separately:

  1. In the grid, select the barcode and click Undo.
  2. Repeat this for each item for which the Complete Loan needs to reversed.
