Checkout History and Holds History are OPTIONAL features that will list Previously Checked Out Items and holds placed, starting from the date on which checkout and hold histories were turned on.

By default, these options are OFF. Staff cannot turn on (or view) previous checkouts, although they can access cancelled holds.

Checkout and Hold History options:
