Vacation Hold is working fine for me. The pop-up calendar where you select the end date isn't popping up, but if you type the date you want into the box then it sets up the hold correctly.

I had my account on hold for 3 weeks in May and I got a couple of auto-request wish list books during that time, but had no requests from my shelf, so as far as I could tell it worked as expected.

Cathy - I tried putting in the dates I wanted my account held, and it came up with today's date as the beginning date and no closing date.

The calendar didn't work for me either.  I keep trying, but so far no luck. Pat

Finally got it to work using / 6/11/17 instead of 6.11.17.  Pat

Yeah, you have to use the U.S. date format which is the "/" as a separator.
