Many libraries would like the ability to limit purchase suggestions made by a
patron to a certain number over a specified period. i.e. 3 suggestions every
30 days. The MaxOpenSuggestions works to limit 'open' suggestions, but does
not take into account the total suggestions made by patrons. We need the
ability to limit the number of suggestions a patron can make in a "rolling
number of weeks" (over last X weeks).
The variables for this would be the number of suggestions and the number of
Suggested system preference "MaxTotalSuggestions" with two variables. First is
the number of total suggestions and the second is the number of days.
e.g. MaxTotalSuggestion Allow 3 total suggestions over 30 days. (user
configures the numbers to suit their policy)
Result: Users are prevented from making any suggestions if the total
suggestions (pending/checked/accepted/rejected) they've made over the last X
days is equal to the max specified.
