Adjustments and Bug Fixing

Missing translations

  • When submitting an order in the borrow section in the German part, the success message has now been translated to German.
  • Tab “return” in German part of leihs has now been translated to German

Borrow section

  • The filter settings are not deleted anymore when switching from one category to another

Lending section

  • Feature delegation contracts: When searching for a user, not only his own contracts are shown in the overview but also contracts of delegations, where this user is acting as borrower.
  • Bug fixing: Adding an item or model is not case sensitive anymore. This bug was introduced with the PostgreSQL-Update
  • Bug fixing: It is not possible to lend the same item at the same time to the same user.
  • Bug fixing: Date field when editing the calender in the return page was buggy. Now it is possible to delete the date or type a new date

Manage section

  • Feature duplicate items: If you save an item where the serial-nr. already exists in leihs, you receive a warning asking, if you really want to save. This should help keep your inventory “tidy”.
