Updates to requests

Learn how to update a request once the patron submits a response or a document in Relais ILL.

Once the patron submits a response or a document, the updating of requests is a combination of automated steps and in some cases staff interaction.

The information entered by the patron via the Patron Response page is used to update the request. The next steps depend on what message was sent to the patron, whether a response or a document is required and how the patron responds.

For details on configuring queues and reject codes, see Configure Notify Patron messages.
