Adding and editing Frequencies


This help topic explains how to add and edit Frequency types for subscriptions. You will use Frequencies when you set up a subscription to indicate how often new issues/parts should be expected. A variety of Frequencies are supplied with KnowAll Matrix by default, but you can add to and edit these.

Adding/editing Frequencies

  • Log in as a Library Admin user.
    • Note that your account must have the Serials Admin role, specifically.
  • Click on Library Admin, then Serials.
  • Under Authority Lists, click Frequencies to open the Frequencies authority list, as below.

  • To add a new Frequency type, click the Add New button. This opens the Add New Frequency window, as below.
  • To edit an existing Frequency, click its name on the list, or the pencil (edit) icon at the end of the same row. A similar window will open.
  • Enter a name for the Frequency in the Frequency field.
  • Choose the Interval Unit from the drop-down menu – e.g. day, week, month. This determines the measure of the Interval Length.
  • Enter an Interval Length (the units being determined by Interval Unit)
  • If necessary, adjust the Number Predicted. This is the numbers of issues/parts predicted when this Frequency is chosen for a subscription.
  • If necessary, adjust the Days Between issues/parts.
  • The Days Grace field can be used to adjust the number of days after the due date before the system starts reporting a part as overdue.
  • Enter any Notes for your own reference.
  • Click Save when finished.
