Block patrons from putting holds on items they already have checked out
Our site manager said this was a previous long-standing enhancement request and suggested I check here and vote on it. I can't find anything that matches, so am starting an idea.
We have several patrons at different branches placing holds on items they already checked out so as to bypass our unwritten guideline of leaving items available to others for 24 hours before being checked out again. Now, for older items this isn't a problem and staff are allowed to make exceptions, but this practice is becoming a issue. We do allow one renewal, but apparently this isn't enough for some patrons.

As people see this enhancement request, please comment. There is a request under Vega Discover right now asking for the ability to place holds on items out (https://ideas.iii.com/admin/v3/ideas/46756351), while this request is asking us to restrict them. So there is clearly a need for configuration to support different library policies. Having comments on different library policies would be very helpful.(Edited by admin)
