  1. Use Appointment StopTime to use Appointment to inactive instead of StartTime

    Users have reported that once an appointment starts, it is moved to inactive and hidden in the client. Some reading rooms allow requesting after the Appointment StartTime and therefore the appointment should remain active in the client lists until the StopTime has elapsed.

  2. Ping the endpoint service periodically to keep the connection active.

    We use a homegrown request tool for our EAD guides and we run into an issue where, after a period of inactivity, the connection is lost and so our request tool cannot communicate with Aeon. There does not seem to be a good way to "poke" the server to reestablish the connection. Sometimes the issues lasts a moment, sometimes it persists for 10-15 minutes, meaning our users cannot easily submit requests.

  3. Aeon calendar - seat locations by status

    Would it be possible to have Aeon calendar seat locations be available/manageable by user status? So for example, if there were 6 seats available for the public, but two additional seats only available for staff or fellows, could that be configured so those additional seats could be booked only by users with the selected statuses?

  4. Do not allow requests to be cloned to a disavowed account.

    It doesn't make sense to be able to associate any new requests with a disavowed account. When cloning a request to another user and searching for them by name (not username), is it possible to hide disavowed accounts to avoid the mix-up?

  5. Restore "bright yellow" highlighting for modified but unsaved field values

    Restore "bright yellow" highlighting for modified but unsaved field values or provide options for skin color palette customization. Previous default highlight color (#FEFD35) was well-liked by staff and none of the current skins offer a comparable attention-grabbing option.

  6. Automated emails depending on queue/request status

    Would it be possible to set up automated emails depending on a request's status or for all requests in a certain queue? For example, when a request is routed to Appointment Confirmed, an appointment confirmation email is set from the system automatically.

  7. Sticky Flag Queues

    Hello,
    We use the "Deliver to Reading Room" flag, and each time the queue is emptied and a user logs back into Aeon, the "Requests" queue section that includes the "Deliver to Reading Room" queue reverts to it's original order in the list of queue categories. It would be great if it could stick to the spot where the Aeon user has moved it.

  8. Information passed from another system into Aeon with a diacritics issue

    I've recently noticed that diacritics appear as weird symbols when they are inserted into Aeon from ArchiveSpace.

  9. Create option to restrict reproductions in specific cases via the ArchivesSpace plugin

    Some collections are restricted for digitization but are available for in-person viewing. An option should be added to Aeon to restrict the photoduplication option for specific collections. A customization key would need to be added where a list of unique item URIs could be added when duplication is restricted.

  10. Allow for hyperlinks in the unrequestable alert in ArchivesSpace plugin

    We'd like to be able to point the user to guidance on how to submit requests from ArchivesSpace to Aeon from the finding aid by adding a hyperlink to the unrequestable alert in ArchivesSpace that leads to one of our getting started guides.

  11. Allow request submittal after appointment StartTime has begun

    Many reading rooms allow request submittal after the appointment time starts. If the Appointment mindleaddays is set to 0, this should allow the user to submit requests until the appointment StopTime.

    Alternately, if lead time is required, add a new key to indicate whether requests can be submitted while the user is signed in for their appointment.

  12. Automated email to remind patrons that their reproductions are about to expire

    Purdue University would like for Aeon to send email reminders to patrons for when their uploaded reproduction files are about to expire (electronic delivery cleanup).

  13. Deliver to Reading Room Flag

    It would be great if the "Deliver to Reading Room" flag was automatically removed from a request when the request was moved to the "Checked Out" status.

  14. Email notifications for new requests

    Would it be possible to add notifications to staff via email when new requests come in? The pop-up notification that happens now is not always useful for staff, since often staff are not at their desks - they are in the stacks or elsewhere, and do not see the notification for awhile.

  16. Add "Ready for Paging" status and make available via web Actions menu

    Some reading rooms would like the option for patrons to notify staff when materials should be paged, either before or during an appointment/reading room visit. Adding a Ready for Paging status to the web actions menu would allow patrons to submit requests when ready. Like Remove from Hold, this action should be available only when a request is in a specific status - Awaiting Request Processing. There should be a key or other setting allowing sites to turn this option on or off depending on their retrieval process.

  17. Import location information from ArchivesSpace in requests received by other external systems.

    If a request is received in Aeon from a system that is not the system of record like ArchivesSpace, auto retrieve the matching record ArchivesSpace location and update the Aeon request. Sometimes external systems are not updated real time and the location may have changed. This would prevent staff going to retrieve items in the wrong location and then needing to do detective work to find the correct location in ASpace and retrieve again.

  18. Allow for custom fields to be added to patron appointment request

    California State University L.A. would like to have a drop-down field on the appointment form for the patron to choose the purpose of their appointment. They don't want the field to be on the request form, because the patron would have to select the purpose for each item request for that appointment if the field was required. And they have many returning researchers, so they don't want the field to be on the user registration, as it is more specific to the appointment/reason for the visit.

  20. Activities - incorporate some course reserve-type functions

    Purdue University has a number of classes (which will be Aeon activities) where students go to the reading room to look at course materials on their own time. The students will first make an appointment in the Aeon patron web interface. Then when they arrive onsite, the requests will be cloned from the activity and checked out to the student. Purdue would like for there to be more visible connectivity/relationships between the activity record, the appointment, and the cloned requests. This information would be helpful for reporting purposes, and will also show how classes are used in Archives and Special…
