Patron Manager is the tool that is used to maintain the list of Patrons.
A Patron is an entity that can borrow resources from the library. Whilst a Patron is usually a person, it can also be an organisation; for example, the Kindergarten near the school, a Display Cabinet, etc.
A Patron must have a Family Name, be assigned to a Level and a Group, be unique within their Group (only one Patron with a specific Family Name & Given Name can exist in any single Group). Other fields are optional, however if you do not specify a Group or a Level, the default settings will be used.
The view is via a grid (selectable sort order). If a photo has been loaded for the selected current Patron, it will be displayed. If no photo has been loaded, then a default icon will be displayed based on the Patron's gender.
This page allows you to manage Levels, including adding additional Levels. The system comes preloaded with levels 0 to 13, and 20.
This page allows you to manage Groups, including adding additional Groups. The system comes preloaded with one Group, Staff.
