Yesterday I renewed a book that was supposed to expire the previous day. Maybe bookshare is giving us some a day or so of leeway, or maybe I was just lucky.
I don't know why the renew button can't be there all the time, either. Misha On 2/3/2012 4:55 PM, Evan Reese wrote:
I agree with this, but I agree with Lori more. Why can't the renewal link be active all the time so someone can renew their book whenever?Evan ----- Original Message ----- *From:* Valerie Maples <mailto:vlmaples@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> *To:* bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> ; Alisa Moore <mailto:alisam@xxxxxxxxxxxx> *Sent:* Friday, February 03, 2012 6:57 PM *Subject:* [bksvol-discuss] Re: Your book is about to expire. Alisa; I have to agree with Cindy; it is very frustrating to get the renewal notice 24 hours before we can renew it. They should be simultaneous or send a second note, 24 hours later. Hope they can fix that to help ease our workflow.

This is probably a minor thing in the list of things awaitingyour attention, and I'm not sure how many of us it affects (others beside me if I remember some posts correctly) butwould it be possible to send reminders that books we're working are about to expire on the day that they're due to expire instead of 2 days in advance? when I get the email I go to my list of books checked out and there's no way to renew them. Or maybe you can activate the "renewal" word at the same time you send the reminder email I try to remember to check each day, but too often when I've gone and the renewal isn't possible I've forgotten to check againa and the book was released and I'v e had to redown it. This wouldn't b e so bad, because the book I'm working on now n one else wants but sometimes it's hard to find the right page; also at times I've seen that people do grab books others have had released and the ones who didn't renew on time have to ask whomever got it to release it so the person could finish Cinidy ------------------------------------------------------------------------ *From:* Bookshare Support <support@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> *To:* popularplace@xxxxxxxxx *Sent:* Friday, February 3, 2012 12:45 PM *Subject:* Your book is about to expire.
