[resolved] Retrieving Check-out Data (2 posts)

    Is there a way to retrieve a list of who checked out an item in the past after it's been checked back in?

    I attempted to export the circulation stats (hoping that would give more information), but that page doesn't work properly. It won't let me select a month and if I click on "export" anyway I get:

    No, once an item is checked in, the 'transaction' (the record of the checkout) is deleted. (Ditto for holds.) This per standard public library 'policy': I originally write this plugin for use at a public library and public library policy is that a patron's past 'history' of items checked out is not to be stored. *Some* fancier library systems do allow for a *patron* to opt to save their 'reading hostory', but that is only for the patron's use, and would not be accessable by library staff (at least not legitimately).

    Yeah, the cir stats code is broken -- something I need to fix (really needs some re-design).
