You can use action triggers to send emails and/or SMS text messages to a
patron when a hold is cancelled, and you can also use them to add messages
to a patron's account that they see in the OPAC.

You can set different messages based on the triggers
"hold_request.cancel.expire_holds_shelf" (they didn't pick it up in time)
or "hold_request.cancel.staff" (the hold was cancelled by staff).

You can see the wording we use for ours at:
