Monday Minutes: Seamlessly Add Patron Images

In this week's Monday Minutes, Kelly and Jessie show a new feature coming in 22.05, which will allow libraries to utilize a webcam or library camera to take and upload a patron image easily!

System Preference

The system preference, patronimages, will need to be set to ALLOW if a library would like to upload pictures to the patron account.

Patron Images

Once a library has enabled this system preference, in a patron account, the option for edit/adding a patron image will appear when a mouse is hovering over the patron image area.

Now there will be a pop-out model window that will allow the library to upload an image, or take a picture from the computer or a web-cam.

Once a picture has been taken, and/or retaken, then this picture can be immediately uploaded to the patron's account. This image can also be downloaded to the computer.

22.05 Coming to Your Library Soon

We are super excited to share some fun and exciting features coming in 22.05. More information to come for our ByWater Solutions partners about upcoming 22.05 Koha Webinars and documentation.
