From the Help Center:

The auto-request feature on the Wish List will request a Wish List book automatically for you if you have a credit in your account, skipping the email offer/confirmation step.  Auto-request will work even if an account is on hold.  If you do not have credits in your account when an auto-requested book becomes available, the Auto-Request will convert to a regular Wish List offer.  If your account is on Vacation Hold in this situation, you will be "bypassed" for the book, and will remain in your place in the Wish List.

Dana,

There is lots of good information in the Help Center. I found this below by going to the Help Docs and putting Auto Request in the search field:

What is the auto-request feature on the Wish List?

The auto-request feature on the Wish List will request a Wish List book automatically for you if you have a credit in your account, skipping the email offer/confirmation step.  Auto-request will work even if an account is on hold.  If you do not have credits in your account when an auto-requested book becomes available, the Auto-Request will convert to a regular Wish List offer.  If your account is on Vacation Hold in this situation, you will be "bypassed" for the book, and will remain in your place in the Wish List.

Why use auto-request?

  • If you know you will not be able to respond to a Wish List offer email within 48 hours (or if you are going away and putting your account on hold), you will be sure not to miss a Wish List book.

Hi Dana!  I guess your question has been answered but I would like to say I absolutely LOVE autorequest!  When I first joined I didn't to it for a while, then went on vacation so did it, and liked it so much I do it all the time now.

It's SO much fun to click on your email and see a book you've wanted (sometimes for a long time) is already automatically requested for you and maybe even mailed already!  Like Christmas or something. 

I would highly recommend you auto request your WL books. 

Have fun and welcome to PBS!
