P32 Item types
The Item types from the LMS include a code and an associated name. This page allows you to see the code and name of an item type, and to edit whether the item type is active or inactive.
Depending on the setting of the system and the user credentials, it can be possible to edit the name and the code of the item type.
Hint: When multiple item types need to be disabled at the same time, it is practical to include inactive item types in the overview by ticking the checkbox “Include inactive”. This ensures that the overview does not jump to the top of the page each time an item type is disabled.
