Weekly Update – June 18, 2013

Updated Reports Index: Help Needed!

We are updating the Reports Index and need your help! A lot of the templates shared out with the entire consortium appear to be duplicates or in-development clones. If you have built templates and shared them with the consortium (in folders marked [EG-IN]), please take a couple of minutes before July 1, 2013 and delete any templates in your shared folder that you know are non-functioning, outdated, or exact duplicates of templates created by ISL Admin or ISL-Jasonb (Jason Boyer). A searchable (Ctrl-f) current list of the 954 shared templates is available here.
Some shared templates may have reports from other libraries attached to them. If this is the case, you may not be able to delete one or more of your templates yourself. If you are unable to delete a known defective template shared from your account, please open a helpdesk ticket and enter your Evergreen Indiana username (the one used to create the template), the containing folder, the exact name of the defective template, and that you would like it to be removed because it is defective.

Questions about Bills?

Just a quick reminder that there is a free 1-hour webinar available on-demand that reviews all the policies on billing in Evergreen Indiana. It includes information on who collects which fees, how they may be collected, and what happens if you accidentally collect fees owed to another member library. Click the link below to watch the webinar, take the quiz, and receive a TLEU!
