Web Staff Client: Clear Hold Activation Date

Bug Description

EG 3.3

It doesn't seem possible to clear the hold activation date in the web staff client.

In the view holds interface, I attempted to clear a previously set hold activation date by both activating the hold and by trying to save a blank date in the edit hold dates interface. Neither option worked.

In the XUL client, there is a remove option when the edit activation date option is selected, which clears the activation date.

In the XUL client, when you activate a hold, it also clears the activation date.

And just to include a use case for why this feature is wanted. We just had a staff member ask how they were supposed to clear the activation date on all their book club holds for the next 7 months. They had all the holds placed and suspended with a specific activation date for each title. They are postponing the book club and want to just clear out all the activation dates so they can re-schedule in the future.

Confirmed bug in 3.4.2 as well.

I'm not sure if this should be a separate bug or not, as it relates to how the same field works, but I also noticed that if I open the Edit Hold Dates popup, all the dates default to the date, they aren't populating with any existing dates that have already been saved. The attached screenshot shows an attempt to edit a hold activation date that should already be 05/27/2020 but is defaulting to 05/15/2020.

Terran, I've noticed that as well, I think that should be a seperate bug. I'm curious how it would handle displaying the current date value when multiple holds are being edited.

It seems like it is possible to clear the hold activation date in the experimental angular patron holds interface.

So this ticket can probably be resolved once that is ready for general use.

In the Angular patron interface

The modify hold widget allows entered dates to be selected and deleted, and then the hold can be saved which clears the date.
