When the automatic life cycle management must weed the stock of a title, one specific copy needs to be selected for the weeding order that has been created. This parameter helps control which copy is selected.

This parameter specifies whether floating items should be prioritized over fixed items when weeding orders are generated.

If the parameter is set on “Yes”, fixed/floating is included as a component in prioritizing items whenever a copy must be selected for discard. Floating items are discarded before fixed items.

If the parameter is set on “No”, no distinction is made between fixed and floating items in this selection.

Please note: This parameter has no effect on the quantity of items that need to be weeded. Only the selection of a specific copy of a given title is affected.

See the description of weeding of the stock for a complete description of how a copy is selected for weeding.
