The update schedule is still a draft.
The pilot libraries are expected to test for 15-19 weeks (excluding the summer holidays). For other libraries we have preliminarily allocated 5 weeks for version upgrade: 3 weeks conversion and testing, 1 week for testing Finna view and moving to production, 1 week for transferring the test server resources to the next library. More accurate schedule estimate as a table.

Functionalities potentially requiring development in the Community version
|Functionality||Libraries that use it||Status||Notes||Priority|
|Tools => Label printer (labels to be put in backs of books) (/cgi-bin/koha/labels/oplib-label-create.pl)|
Use is being researched
|Info on use in libraries urgent, related to a database structure change.||Aim at a plugin solution|
Expired holds tab (list of items someone has made a hold request on but does not check it out before the hold expires; handy for easy clearing of these items off the holds shelf).
3AMK-libraries problems with reliability of the list)
|Not started||Info on use in libraries urgent, related to a database structure change.|
We'll not work on it now, first test the Community Version functionalities.
Requiring complex password based on patron category code (usually, higher requirements for staff members)
(/cgi-bin/koha/admin/categories.pl => Muokkaa => Tyypin salasanakäytäntö)
Xamk: generally simplenumeric > self-service library PIN is 4 numbers ; and staff > alphanumeric),
Info on use in libraries urgent, related to a database structure change.
In Community Version, requirements may only be made globally.
|Not urgent – libraries will direct staff and other users.|
Time that holds will wait for being checked out set different according to the patron group, library, or item type. (In Community Version only on sys pref level)
Is there need to be able to define different time according to the patron group, library, or item type?
Holds not checked out in time: defining different fees according to the patron group, library, or item type (In Community Version on sys prefe level only?) (Making holds may be free but you need to pay a "fine" if you don't come and claim the hold before it expires.)

Component part bibliographic records (e.g. a song on a CD)
Also bound volume contains multiple items (several independent works bound together)

Tritonia (bound volumes, not a priority)
Varastokirjasto (also bound volumes, not a priority). Music is important, and how they show in Finna.

|Libraries will look at the Community Version and its suitability|

Enable making holds even though there are items (e.g. short term loan items) available in the library
|Tritonia (Critical), Kansalliskirjasto ©itival)||Bug detected in Community Version||https://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=24683|
|Shelf hold list (list of holds patrons are made on items in stacks, helps in picking up these items)||HAMK|
There is a shelf hold list in National Version.
In the Community Version, the list lacks critical pieces of data (like edition, etc.)
|Anonymized hold identifiers (when patron can go and pick up themselves their books on hold from a dedicated shelf, they find them by an identifier in the slip between the book. Name is not used for privacy reasons.)|
|Creating DB schema transformation definitions||Done|
|Creating script to run before the Koah DB upgrade script, based on the definitions above||Done mostly, except for those waiting library feedback. Succesful test conversion done with HAMK|
|Script to do post-db-upgrade transformations in DB||Not started (might not be required)|
Notices from testing migration
|May 26th||all tables show different timestamp (-3 hours) on migration database than on current database (f.ex. action_logs.action_id 1586094 has timestamp 2020-05-12 03:00:17 on current database and 2020-05-12 00:00:17 on migrated database||Minna Kivinen|
