koha-claim - Claim overdues each day, grouping same overdues
koha-claim --doit --to firstname.lastname@example.org
This script creates claim notifications to borrowers for their overdues based on claim rules. Notification are inserted into Koha standard notification queue (message_queue table). They have then to be processed by process_message_queue.pl script. The notifications group overdues. So for example, if a borrower has 3 overdues, 1 for 10 days and 2 for 20 days, and if you have 2 rules, one for 10 days and another one for 20 days, 2 notifications (not 3, one for each overdue) will be prepared: the 20 days notification will group the 2 20 days overdues.
Rules are found in ClaimRules Koha system preference.

* * 15 1 REL1
MAIN * 25 1 REL1
* BK 40 1 REL1
* * 55 1 REL1
* * 75 1 REL1
* * 85 1 REL4
* * 90 1 REL1
This script MUST be run every day. It matches overdues on a exact number of days of overdue.
Without --doit parameter, the notifications are sent to the terminal (stdout) rather than to the notification queue.
The notifications are entered in Koha in Tools > Notifications. Items information must be enclosed into <items> </items> tag. For example:
Miss, Madam, Sir,
This is overdue:
Call Number: <<items.itemcallnumber>>
Borrowed at: <<item_branch>>
Due date: <<issues.date_due>>
