Web Client - Copy Attribute Templates


BUG: <NONE> Statistical Categories

When a template has multiple Statistical Categories - PLS currently uses 7 stat cats - and some of the stat cat values are <NONE> and some stat cats have actual values, such as Fiction or Adult, no stat cat values will be saved to the template.

This is a problem for some libraries because PLS had been recommending removing 4 of the 7 stat cats to prepare for their discontinuation.

A fix has been implemented for a future version (3.1, we are currently running 3.0) of Evergreen.

This Administration menu option allows staff to work with templates without using data from a live copy record.

All three support full template functions while working with actual copy records.
