Current situation or problem:
When a renewal is requested by the borrower on an INN-Reach, FOLIO must send a request to the central server, which will then be passed on to the owning site for verification. Ideally, the renewal in FOLIO would not process until verification was received.
- A method for notifying the INN-Reach module(s) of loan renewal requests.
- Logic for determining whether a renewal request is associated with an INN-Reach request and notifying the INN-Reach central server, as required.
- A method for denying/allowing renewal based on the response from the Central Server
Out of scope
Ideal: The ability to "plug-in" to the renewal request flow and "wait" on the response from the Central server before proceeding with the renewal.
"Thin thread": Process the renewal request according to local circulation rules/policies and then modify the loan as needed after the central server responds.

- How should/could we handle the UI/UX in the thin-thread story for the renewing patron so as to minimize confusion?
