Subject: moving titles from Reminder List to Wish List

I checked all the titles in my reminder list, to move them to the wishlist, and hit OK, but they did not  move, and are still on the reminder list.

Can anyone tell me why this might happen?

Thanks,

Chip

I think you can only use the convert button for one page at a time, so if you have multiple pages in your RL, that might have something to do with it.  Also, he WL still has a 200 max, so if the number you tried to convert exceeded the number of spaces left in your WL...that might have had something to do w/ it.  Plus, if the books are in the system (if the number on the RL says something other than zero) then you can't WL them.  Other than those three factors, I have no idea what would stop books from being converted.

Sorry if I'm repeating options you already thought of.

What you do is click the check box next to the titles you want to move ON ONE PAGE (as Jo said) and then click on "Convert checked." They should then go to your WL. Make sure you haven't checked "Delete checked" or they'll disappear!

I just checked to make sure it's working and no problems.

Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it.

 

But for some reason, I still can't get it to work. I am only checking books on the one page of the ReminderList that I have, and I don't have more than 200 books on my WL.

AHmmmmm.  Are you sure they are not currrently available for order?  That would keep them from moving over.

If it says "order this book" then you cannot move them over. You have to just order them. No reason for them to be on your wish list if they are available...

Yep, maybe that's it, Chris...if there is even one copy of the book in the system, it cannot be wishlisted because you can just order the book now...the wishlist is for books not currently available in the system.

The number of books in the system should show on your reminder list under the title and ISBN info...if you are checking books that say 0 books available and they're not moving over to your WL when you click on the "convert" button, then there's some sort of glitch with your account and you should send a feedback to R&R so they can check it out. If you click on the "contact us" link at the bottom of each page, you'll get the feedback screen.
