Patrons in Koha can be edited using one of many edit buttons.
To edit the entire patron record simply click the 'Edit' button at the top of the patron record.
To only change the patron's password, click the 'Change Password' button
Patron passwords are encrypted and cannot be recovered by the library staff
This form will automatically generate a random password, this password is not the patron's current password, just a new random password
To edit a specific section of the patron record (for example the Library Use section) click the 'Edit' link below the section
A patron image can be added by browsing for the image on your machine from the 'Manage Patron Image' section
If you would like your circulation staff to confirm a patron's address before checking items out to the patron, you can see the 'Gone no Address' flag
If you would like to bar a patron from the library you can set the 'Restricted' flag
This flag can automatically be set with the Overdue/Notice Status Triggers
If the patron reports that they have lost their card you can set the 'Lost Card' flag to prevent someone else from using that card to check items out
Children patrons do not become adults automatically in Koha. To upgrade a child patron to and adult patron category click on the 'More' menu and choose 'Update Child to Adult Patron'
