Holly just met with Anne Highsmith of Texas A&M to review an issue Anne has uncovered with the calculation of overdue fines on a migrated overdue item. The meeting recording is available at https://drive.google.com/open?id=10OUlIB7VbYWg0DOklo_-QmJhYOH-XjlH
The recording explains the situation, shows the policies in effect, the calendar, etc. We also wanted to test the calculation of overdue fines on a loan that originated in FOLIO, but we couldn't due to a system error. We will try that again after the system error is fixed.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Migrate an overdue Voyager loan to FOLIO
- The loan we are testing with was due on December 10, 2018 at 6:11 PM (very overdue!)
- Log into TAMU's FOLIO test environment (Anne will request a special login for the developer who investigates this issue)
- Check in the overdue book on May 29, 2020 at 2:36 PM
- The check-in page indicates that a fee/fine was charged
35.00 fee/fine charged (overdue fine is 1.00 per day, with a maximum of 35.00)
9.00 fee/fine charged
- TAMU does not count closed time in overdue fines
- TAMU has installed the most recent hotfix related to not counting closed time (mod-circulation-18.0.9)
- TAMU's calendar begins on January 1, 2000, and they are open every day
- When the test was rerun, with a check-in on June 2, 2020, the fee/fine was still 9.00. We would have expected it to be higher.
- The loans were migrated into FOLIO about a week ago
