  1. Open electronically delivered items in separate tab or window

    Add the functionality to have the electronically delivered file(s) open in a separate tab or window in the web browser. This way the user can still have their Aeon account viewable.

  3. Sending activity notification to a user who has yet created an account

    I'd like to be able to create an activity and send a link to a user to add items even if they haven't yet created an account. The link would take them to the account creation page and then let them submit requests for the activity. Currently, I have to hope they let me know when they created an account or keep checking in Aeon before I know that I can add them to the activity.

  4. Create deadline for submitting requests to an activity

    I'd like to close an activity for additional submissions from nonstaff by a certain date. That way I would have adequate time to pull materials and don't need to constantly monitor activities to see if faculty or students added items.

  5. Custom Searches saved to Quick Access Toolbar should remain after search is closed

    Custom searches added to the quick access toolbar disappear once the search tab is closed. It would be nice if they persisted so staff could perform routine daily searches from the toolbar without having to reopen the search tab everytime.

  6. Create "email all" functionality that allows the option to email all patrons in bulk from Aeon.

    We'd like Aeon to allow us the capability of emailing all approved researchers through the system directly. Currently, we have to create a list and export it from Aeon to send emails from another system

  7. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin - Ability for patrons to make more than one selection in ArchivesSpace

    A library using the Aeon Fulfillment plugin in ArchivesSpace would like for checkboxes to appear at the requestable levels (e.g. file, Item) so that a patron may select more than one resource before using the plugin to log into the Aeon and submit the requests via Aeon. They are essentially looking for a "shopping cart" feature on the ArchivesSpace side.

  8. Allow activity cloning from web account

    Possibility of adding activity cloning from researchers web account. We work with several faculty and groups teaching the same classes each year and allowing them control of this function would help alleviate the impact this currently has on staff time.

  10. Increase size of the icons that appear in the Aeon staff client

    Georgia Archives has asked that the icons (e.g. refresh, "heart" button, tabs navigation button) in the Aeon staff client be larger so that it is easier for staff to see them and use them.

  11. morriskn@jmu.edu

    Add the ability to schedule partial closures within the customization manager. Because of instruction held frequently in the reading room, I would like to be able to block requesting for specific blocks of time within a day, for example, from 1:00-2:30.

  12. User email and transaction emails - show in user history

    It would be helpful to see the history of all emails sent to a user in the account history tab even if they are sent from the transaction level.

  13. Allow ILLiad TN (from Aeon-ILLiad integration mapping) to merge into email templates

    Sites would like to be able to include the ILLiad TN when contacting patrons. It's not currently possible to include this field in the email templates.

  14. Increase the character limit of the To Address field in email templates

    Submitted on behalf of an Aeon user: My staff discovered that there is a character limit in the “To:” field in the email template section of the Aeon Customization Manager. This prevents us from emailing all of the staff in our Researcher Services group. It also prevents Outlook from converting the list of emails to the more recognizable “Reading Room Group” email group.

    We have frequent need for emailing multiple people, whether its our own staff or its participants in an activity, etc. Can that character limit be removed?

  15. Queue-specific filters

    I'd like to be able to create a filter that is unique in our Staff Template to unique queues. Right now any time I have a filter applied, the filter automatically applies to any other queue, but for certain queues it would be helpful, for instance, to automatically only view a single day's requests.

  16. Include "Notes" field when cloning requests.

    When a request is cloned either within the Aeon Client, or from the online platform, can the information present in the "Notes" field of the original request transfer into the new request? For example: our local/staff notes, which indicate unique item locations populate into this field. When cloning, these notes do not transfer, which impacts turn around time and requires staff to either look at and copy notes from the original request, or locate the material in our ILS to find the notes. The latter happening more often with researcher cloned requests, as staff are unaware that it has been…

  17. Add functionality to add conditional fields and text based on form inputs

    Many sites wish to display or hide fields and text based on specific data inputs, a specific format or checking For Publication are two examples. It would be helpful to create a secondary form that could display this text or the fields before patrons submit their request form.

  18. Ability to customize new request notifications

    I'd love to be able to customize the new request notifications. An example would be to to turn off notifications for requests that are part of activities.

  19. Remove SecondaryAddressActive key from Customization Manager

    UseSecondaryAddress was added in Aeon 5.0 and controls whether the secondary address fields are displayed in the web interface.

    Need to investigate whether SecondaryAddressActive is used for anything before removing.

  20. Create keys for or add additional fields to CustomDropDown table to indicate on which form a field should be displayed

    Example: Fields like Status are often hard-coded on NewUserRegistration and NewAuthRegistration if the site wants some statuses that are internal-only or if the statuses should display differently for affiliate vs non-affiliate users.

    Including keys in the customization manager or some way to indicate which options should be included on which form would allow for more flexibility with those options and eliminate the need to hard-code the values on the web forms.
