A user missed a hold that was ready for him/her, but never received a holds notification email. What happened?

If the user was recently issued a new library card number, the title on hold may have been associated with the old library card number. Contact our Support Services team via the Support tab in OverDrive Marketplace.

It is also possible the user’s email provider blocked the notification. Whitelisting the sender email address donotreply@overdrive.com should help ensure this does not occur in the future.

In the Circulation Activity report, what do the format types ‘eBook (Pending)’ and ‘Audiobook (Pending)’ mean?

Users can borrow a title but are not required to choose a format at checkout. Therefore, until the user selects the format, the checkout is categorized as ‘Pending.’ Checkouts will remain in the ‘Pending’ category until the user selects a format. If the loan expires before then, the checkout will remain as ‘Pending.’
