On occasion, you may face special circumstances which prompt you to batch change item ‘due dates’.

For example, one of your teachers has reached the renewal limit and she still needs the 50 manuals borrowed on her card. Other situations may lead to unexpected library closure (power outage, flood, or any emergencies).

Therefore, a simple batch change of items ‘due dates’ can avoid unnecessary fines to your patrons.
