I am trying to change membership from Permanent Override to No or Override on a Specific Date, but the change isn't accepted. I have Admin access. Is there a background setting that might be impacting this?

  • what status is the person currently on

  • if you are using the overlay/pop-up style page, try instead to right click on the link you are using (Edit Membership?) and open as a new tab. then when it fails (if that is what it is doing) it may give you some more helpful error messages which you can paste here

I've had a possibly related experience, where the status wasn't being updated automatically, and it seemed to be related to whether it's been overridden in the past. I noticed this related-sounding issue;


and tried a more recent civicrm version and that fixed some aspects (the system job didn't update the status, but just editing the membership record fixed the status).

    As the author of that issue, I'd say this is almost certainly the correct answer. Jan 7 at 23:56
