Bill Patron

Evergreen v.2.10


There are two types of bills in Evergreen:

  • Circulation transaction type - system created bills for transactions like overdues, lost materials, damaged materials, etc.
  • Grocery transaction type - manual bills created by staff for transactions like hold-noshows, replacement library cards, miscellaneous reasons, etc. These bills can be linked to specific items or be independent of a specific item.
The Bill Patron wizard accessible from the PatronBills option creates manual bills not associated with item details. To create bills associated with a specific item, circulation transaction, or prior billing, see: AddBilling
