You can create a template for those locations in Edit item attributes which 
includes setting the floating flag to yes. You do have to apply the template 
manually but you can apply it to multiple copies at a time in copy buckets 
or in Item status, cataloging functions.  I don’t see that you can set it in 
the Holdings import file for batch importing.

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Floating collection question


All of the titles with a shelving location of "Stacks" float between our KY 
& FL campuses. The "Floating?" data element in our copy/item records now 
contains that value so Floating now works for our current holdings.

The question is, "Is there a way to automatically provide that default value 
to the copy records so the we don't have to apply it to every new copy 
record manually?"  We thought there might be a column in the Copy Locations 
Editor for Floating but there isn't one. What should we do?

Thanks! and Happy Weekend!
