Which library generates the Notice (of any kind)?
The Holding library (ie the library from which the item circulated) will be the one sending the Notice.
What notices need unique Codes?
What notices must retain their original Code, but should have a unique name?
All. You can create custom notices but once they are associated with your library, then that will be the notice that is sent.
How do I set it so that my custom Notices are sent for items circulated from my library?
How do I create Overdue Notices that I can use in the Overdue notice/status triggers?
Do I need to complete an Overdue Rule for all those patron groups?
Yes. You will need to create the rules for every patron group to whom you could possible lend from your library. Remember, it is the holding library that ‘sends’ the notices. If you will be directly lending to any patron group then you will need to complete the rules in order for them to receive an overdue notice.
