  1. Specify a hold location in its own field for each item

    Sites could benefit from a "hold location" field in the Transactions table for each item. When the item is placed on the hold shelf, staff can designate that location (similar to choosing a table when signing a person into the reading room). That value would then display in the grid for all items on hold and would automatically clear when the item was checked back in without staff having to remember to clear it.

  2. Class material labels

    In future versions of Aeon, it would be a great help if we were able to (1) generate labels (aut, title, imprint, call number) to use for class material and an easy way to generate a word document-looking list of materials used in a class.

  3. Automated flag removal at time of reshelve

    Is it possible for the system to automatically remove the flag status at the time the item is "reshelved". Thus avoiding duplicate handling of the record and causing confusion of the number of items on selected locations.

  9. Adjust user expiration process to automatically update the user's expiration date when they submit ChangeUserInformation or ExpiredUsers

    This should not be dependent on the AutoUpdateExpiration key. Many sites want users to expire yearly in order to reagree to reading room policies but do not want the user's expiration date to update anytime the user submits ChangeUserInformation, as that would bypass set user expiration.

  10. Create database field for preferred name

    Create a new database field for Preferred Name. This field should be searchable in the Name search on the Dashboard and added to the available display fields in the Signed In Users group. When used and data is present, the preferred name should supersede the First Name in all views/displays/print templates.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Login As should not default to previous account when user clicks Cancel

    The Login As option allows staff users to switch accounts, but can pose a security risk if a user clicks cancel as the client will revert back to the previously logged in staff user.

  15. Have the Site field set based on the staff user's DBC when creating requests from an Excel

    If a staff user forgets to include the Site value when creating requests from an Excel file, the Site is set to blank and the requests are not visible to staff. It would be helpful to have the Site value automatically set based on the user's DBC in the same way it is set when single requests are created in the client.

  18. Delete users and/or requests

    Sites would like to delete users and requests from the database permanently. This is for cleaning up bogus records as well as breaking the connection for old successful requests the site does not want to keep any longer.
