Here's how to email receipts to patrons when items are checked-in.

Under Admin > Options > Printing set the checkbox to print receipts for checked-in items.

The most important thing to remember is that this will not work for the Check-in with no patrons present. 

  1. Select Check-Out from the Circulation Function menu.
  2. Make sure that email to patron is selected under File > Select Printer > Receipt Printer > Email to patron
  3. Then select check-in from the sidebar menu in black on the left-hand side.
  4. Check the item in at the top in barcode area and it will automatically prompt you to send the email receipt.
