  1. Appointment display options for patrons

    Right now it looks as if a user logged in through the web will see their own appointments displayed in order from earliest (including past appointments) to latest. I imagine that as our frequent users return, this might get annoying for them - since they'd have to scroll and scroll to reach more recent/upcoming appointments.

    Is there a way to let patrons change the order in which they display, or to toggle on/off "active" (current and upcoming?) appointments the way you can for "active" requests?

  2. Add associated appointments to info displayed in request lists

    An option to show patrons which requests they have linked to an appointment in the "Outstanding Requests," "All Requests" etc. lists would be great.

  3. Allow researchers to cancel their appointments up until their appointment time

    It would be great if researchers could cancel their own appointments within the minimum lead timeframe.

  4. Add Appointment Creation ability to API/Endpoints

    Need the ability to create appointments in the API so that we can leverage that when using external requesting.

  6. Allow staff to request items without appointments

    Once you require appointments, it is applicable to everyone including staff. This is okay for Public Services staff who can navigate the client but not for everyone else who submits through the web interface. We have a workaround but it would be nice to allow staff to submit without an appointment.

  7. Allow users to select multiple dates/date spans in the Aeon front-facing calendar

    We desperately need for users to be able to choose more than one date on the calendar via a single request form. For researchers visiting for one week, for example, we would like them to be able to select their needed materials (from a finding aid, for example), and then be able to select the entire week they propose to visit, as opposed to having to submit a form for each day they want to visit (what if they are viewing one large collection for that entire week, for example - now they have to submit a form for each…

  9. Appointment Display

    It would be great if calendar could show both morning and afternoon appointments. It is very confusing for researchers who are scheduling multiple appointments.

  10. Allow users to sort requests by scheduled date & submission status

    All saved and scheduled requests are currently listed in Outstanding Requests, and there isn't a way for users to easily sort out just the requests for their upcoming appointment. There also isn't a good way for them to view when they have an appointment coming up, short of going into each request (and they may have requests scheduled for different days). It would be good if the patron could see the dates they have requests scheduled and the requests scheduled on those dates, as well as be able to sort Submitted vs Saved requests.

  11. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin - restrictions checkbox

    The University of Baltimore would like for ASpace to indicate when the Restrictions Apply? checkbox is checked in the collection record in ArchivesSpace, as opposed to importing the Access Restrictions note, as the plugin currently does. This is because restrictions note isn't always used because it doesn't always apply; a clearer indication for them is if the checkbox is checked.

  12. Allow users associated with activities to clone any request associated with an activity

    Add a customization key to let sites determine if users associated with activities should be allowed to clone requests they do not own.

    Many sites create requests on behalf of faculty or other users for the activity. If the request is in the staff person's account rather than the faculty person's account, the faculty person cannot easily re-request that item.

  14. When performing search in web, retain selected radio button (active vs all)

    When performing a search using the web search, if a user selects the radio option to Search All, it automatically resets to Active after the search results display. Should be set to retain selection.

  15. Ability to export citations as plain text file

    The University of Arkansas would like for patrons to be able export citations as a plain text file, besides as an .ris file, for patrons who don't use citation software.

  16. Make cancellation and other status lines editable for payment gateway transactions

    The cancel statuses that display if a payment has been cancelled are not always clear to the patron. Sites would like to be able to edit these message, but they are currently controlled by the DLL. It would be helpful to move these to the HTML code so they can be customized as needed,

  18. 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.

  19. Add the ability to schedule partial closures

    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.

  20. Allow photoduplication requesting via External Request Endpoint (ERE)

    Requests placed via external requesting (especially from ArchivesSpace) are unable to be turned into photoduplication orders. Patrons or staff must clone the request to a copy order, which creates confusion with duplicate requests.
