New System Preference
Coming in Koha 20.05, a new system preference called: CollapseFieldsPatronAddForm is coming.
This system preference will allow libraries to determine what areas in the patron form could be collapsed during the registration process.
Collapsing areas will make the form shorter, but when the needs arise, staff can easily expand the area. In the past, Koha only had the system preference, BorrowerUnwantedFields, which would allow libraries to hide specific fields from the patron registration form-however once hidden, staff couldn't use the fields.
If an area has been identified as collapsed, the main heading of that area will show, and if needed, can be clicked to expand. There is also an option to expand all collapsed fields at the top of the registration form.
