Using a staff member as a guarantor for a child

Joann Ransom-2
Hi there,

Is it possible to select a staff member as a guarantor? In the add new
patron screen, in the guarantor section, the "set to patron" function
works fine when searching for an ordinary member to be the patron, (ie
the search patron window returns a result) but it does not find an
existing 'staff' member whom I know is in the database.

Is this a bug or is it by design?

cheers

Joann Ransom.

Joann,

I think this is by design, but I still have a bug reported for it from
a while ago because it is an issue to some of our librarians:

Thanks Nicole - yes it is an issue for us also, with a number of staff
with younger children.

Cheers Jo.
