Various types of notification (email) can be sent by the system to alert patrons about their loans, or to inform librarians of circulation operations. For example, requests arriving at the circulation desk can be configured to be printed out automatically. Depending on the type of notification, it is possible to activate or deactivate them, as well as to configure the number of notifications, the delivery time, the channel and the default delivery address.
