7.4. Status of -1 when displaying hold for specific patron

When displaying the hold status for a specific item on the record of a specific patron library staff may observe the status code of -1 for a status code.

This means that the item, and the hold on that item are in an inconsistent state. An example of this is when a hold is placed on an item that is currently checked out by another patron, or otherwise unavailable for the fulfillment of the hold. This status will change once the item is checked in, or otherwise made available for the hold to be fulfilled.

Status of this item can be checked in the database table asset.copy_status by selecting for the captured copy.

This is a normal operation, and not an error.
