Granting privileges to staff

A common question is how to grant privileges (such as "Super Circulator" or "Super Cataloguer") to staff members. There are two major steps:

Granting permissions:

  1. In the staff client, retrieve the patron and click Edit.
  2. Scroll down to the Profile field. Do not change the Profile field'' Click Secondary Groups beside the field. A list of permission groups appears.
  3. Select the group to which you want to add the patron (for example, Super Circulators and click Add. Repeat for each group to which you want to add the patron.
  4. Click Save.

Granting privileges at a working location:

For staff to be able to log onto a workstation at a given working location (aka library) and perform any of the actions that require the permissions you granted via Secondary Groups, you need to grant them privileges at that working location.

  1. In the staff client, retrieve the patron and click Other -> User Permission Editor. The list of all working locations and privileges that you have the ability to grant access to loads.
  2. Check the box for each working location where the patron should have privileges.
  3. Click Save at the bottom of the User Permission Editor.
