Bug Description

EG 2.8.4

Various staff members have given me feedback that having the "Print List" button on the self check checkout screen causes problems for some customers. They look at the screen and press the "Print List" button to get a receipt, then they log out and get a second receipt. Or they press "Print List" grab their receipt and just walk away.

It is pretty simple to hide the "Print List" button, and it does seem redundant to have it there when logging out will also print a receipt. Would any other uses of the web based self check support removing the "Print List" button from the self check checkout screen. It would still show in the Items Out, Holds and Fines screens.

Working branch coming soon. (Thank you to Terran for showing me how to make the change).

That's a good idea, I can't think of any reason it should stay on that screen.

This hides the print list button on initial login of the web based self check. Print list is re-enabled for the other functions.

This prevents a problem that we observed with our customers where they would hit the print list button, get their receipt and walk away from the self check leaving themselves logged in. We have had no complaints from our users in 3 years about this change.

I've pushed this to master along with a release notes entry. Thanks, Josh and Terran.

Even though this was marked as a wishlist bug, I think it straddles the line and could be considered for backporting.
