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.6 votesunder review · AdminKatie Gillespie (Special Collections & Archives Program Manager, Atlas Systems, Inc.) responded
Rather than using additional queues or flags, we could create separate customizable functionality to allow you to specify a hold location when you click the Item on Hold button or use the Item on Hold batch process. Would this be an acceptable solution?
If a researcher requests something that is already on hold or in retrieval from a remote location, Aeon should alert staff to prevent duplicate paging or looking for things that are right behind them.40 votes
AtoM is open source Archival Description software. Create requesting integration like with ASpace - https://www.accesstomemory.org/en/2 votes
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.5 votes
American Philosophical Society created a 1.0 version of a recommendation system for the Aeon web (called PAL - for People Also Liked) to show other items a researcher might want to request based on topics and requests in the system.
This could be expanded into its own web service for recommending items.2 votes
We would like to keep the option of not clearing users when merging accounts. Clicking on "merge" on a user should go to that user in the merge list.
We would like the whole process of merging to be smoother -- it should be possible to start from any status and merge, and it should be easier to find related individuals. Also, if you click "merge" on a certain user, it should start with that user in the list of users.
The current merge workflow is incredibly confusing.11 votes
