Did you know that every time you checkout or renew an item Sierra prints a receipt when you close the patron record? At a service desk this is a good thing, as we can give the receipt to the student whose books we’ve renewed (or checked out).
But Sierra also automatically prints receipts if you renew or checkout items at your desk. If you don’t sit near a printer you might not even realise that this is happening.
Fortunately it’s easy to stop these unwanted print jobs.
Go to File> Select Printer> Receipt Printer and choose the option ‘Do Not Print’.
This ‘printer’ does what it says on the tin. No more wasted paper!
