Koha Question of the Week: How Can Notices be Edited in Koha?

Each Friday, we will bring you a new Koha Question of the Week. We will select real questions that we receive and share the answers with you!

Question: How Can Notices be Edited in Koha?

Answer: Both the text and content of each Notice and Slip generated in Koha can be edited and customized to fit the library and branch.

Within the Tools module, the Notices and Slips are where all the notices are contained.

From here, each notice/slip that is sent by Koha will be listed in this table. There is a code and a description to assist the library to find which notice to edit.

Here are some helpful documents that can assist in finding the right notice and what should be contained in each one.
