Bug Description

Evergreen 3.3+

This is a wishlist item.

It would be helpful to add the library URL to the actor.org_unit table the same way the email was added. This field can be useful in parts of the system such as reports or notices. It would be nice to be able to have a password reset notice created consortiumwide, but be able to pull the individual URL to use per library, among other notices.

I believe just creating a new field would be much more convenient and usable than a new setting and I believe the best spot for it would be on the org_unit table itself, as opposed to an address field entry.

After further discussion about this with developers locally, it may be a better approach to make it a setting after all so that it can take advantage of inheriting from the parent org unit. We're going to be discussing this further.

Hi Steve - there is already a library setting for library URLs. In the library settings editor it is called "Library information URL" and is set at org level.

To clarify, is the URL you're thinking of storing in this new location the base URL of the public catalog, a value usually distinct from the library's "website" URL?

That is correct, the base URL for the library catalog in order to utilize it in things places such as the action triggers pulling it for the password reset notices.

Noting that PaILS has contracted with Equinox to create a library setting to store a library's OPAC URL & make it accessible to email and receipt templates.

Branch forthcoming.
