  1. Additional ItemInfo fields

    We would like to have 5 additional ItemInfo fields added to the items table, 2 of which would be date formats for license data of streamed content. So we would have license StartDate and license EndDate for these items

  2. Upload Video Files to Ares - allow for streaming

    This has being coming up a lot of us recently where faculty are actively asking for streaming versions of things. The problem we face is that we don’t have a great place to host streaming files at the moment. We are mostly using licensed streaming content from Swank or Kanopy, but we have run into issues with things we need to host locally. We have used Avalon and Panopto as solutions for hosting streamable content, but neither solution are ideal for us at the moment.

  3. Set end date for full proxies.

    Many faculty only need a particular full proxy for one academic year, but there's no way in Ares to indicate when their access to the instructor's material should end. This is problematic for copyright and also because Ares addresses all emails to instructors AND their full proxies, which means proxies may get emails about all sorts of irrelevant courses after their work with the faculty member has ended. Having the option to set an end date (or end semester) would be very helpful. The full proxies could either be purged on that date or simply flagged for review.

  4. Option to store multiple documents for a single item

    This keeps the site from having to manually combine them into a new single document for storage with the item.

  5. Convert Ares to use UTC time

    This would allow the times to display correctly for each site's time zone regardless of where the SQL server is hosted.
