Bug Description

On 2.6 Staff Client

This is not a serious issue. But I found it's odd to have a checbox in front the "Hold was not successfully placed", when a hold fails. The options are Submit to Override or Cancel to abort. It doesn't seem the checkbox is needed here. But it makes some difference. If you de-select it and click Submit, the screen is re-directed to the Record Details screen as on OPAC as logged in by the staff client's login account. (When a hold can't be overridden, there is no response. Staff may try alternative ways.)

I believe the checkbox is for when multiple holds are attempted (say, from a bookbag) and you would want to be able to choose which hold(s) to attempt to override. (tji) wrote :

Makes sense. But it very unlikely happens on the staff client.

Maybe the issue that needs attention is the no response on clicking Submit, when overriding is unsuccessful.
