You can set a default hold period under Settings->Options->Movements->Remove holds after X days Then, when you tick the hold box on a new animal it will auto set the period.
Thanks. That requires someone to remember to check that box also... Is there a way to set up the template stray so it does the box tick automatically?
Yes, if your stray template animal has the hold box ticked then it will be held when you create a new animal of that type.
I am trying this, but it doesnt seem to work as the animal also needs to be placed as non-shelter, which removes the hold correct?
Perhaps for clarification, I am trying to get this to work for type-stray and it seems that it isn't pulling anything I want across so I have an issue somewhere else..... So the name of said animal would be "TemplateTypeStray" without the quotation marks?
And nevermind. I figured out the name issue. Now I cant figure out how to get a hold on a non-shelter dog
Template animals are only applied to shelter animals - they don't work for non-shelter animals. I think there is an override switch we can apply to make them work for non-shelter. If you email with your sheltermanager account number I'll turn it on for you.
I was speaking the template animal needing to be non-shelter. Is that not correct?
Yes, that is correct, the template animal has to be non-shelter, I'm saying it won't be applied if the new animal that you're creating for it to be applied to is non-shelter as well.
