If you read this and want to update the page with the newest information, contact SPARK support.  We'd love to work with you to write good documentation on how Hatch can be used to make location workflows with printers better.


Hatch only works with Chrome. It does not work with Firefox or Explorer.

To use Hatch you must--

Install a java runtime environment version 8 (or higher) if not already installed

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html

Download the Web Staff Client Extension ("Hatch") from the Evergreen Downloads page

https://evergreen-ils.org/egdownloads/

Open Chrome and navigate to chrome://extensions

Enable Developer Mode along the top right of the page

Click the Load Unpacked Extension button

Load the directory at Hatch → extension → app, found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Hatch\extension\app

Once Hatch is installed on your workstation, you will need to enable it in Evergreen. To do that go to:

Administration → Workstation Administration → Print/Storage Service ("Hatch") and choosing which services to use with Hatch. This page will also inform you that hatch is connected.
