Overdues adjusted via lost (or long overdue) processing get an incorrect note ("VOIDED FOR BACKDATE")

Bug Description

Evergreen 2.8+

If you void/adjust an overdue, but don't supply a reason, the code automatically adds "VOIDED FOR BACKDATE" to the billing note. This is obviously wrong for overdues adjusted due to lost (or long overdue) processing.

Branch is coming soon...

Here is a branch for 2.9+



Will post a 2.8 version in the near future. This also needs a test of some kind.

Okay, force pushed an update to the same branch. It now makes the note wording even more consistent across all types of voiding/adjusting. The branch is now two commits.

It should also be noted that without this branch, adjusted overdue fines have no note at all on the adjustments.

Hi Dan,

I just tested this branch and see that the problem Brent reported is resolved. However, when fines are adjusted for backdating, I'm not seeing a reason for the account adjustment. This is on a system where the prohibit negative balance settings are enabled. Could that be added?

Kathy, thanks for testing. You are right, it looks like I missed one of the two backdate code paths (there's always a second path, right?). I pushed what I hope to be the fix to the same branch. Can you give it whirl and see how it goes? Thanks!

Thanks Dan! Looks good to me. I've merged to master and backported to 2.9.

I was unable to log into the client and also the OU selector for

Thanks, Dawn
