  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. Extend length of status lines

    Currently, status line text has a character limit (255?) but this is often not long enough, especially if links are included in the text, as the href code is included in the character count. Status lines should be set to longer character length.

  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. Allowing users to toggle between reading rooms in the appointment booking calendar

    It would be helpful is users could toggle between reading rooms in the appointment booking calendar. It's confusing to have to select which reading room first then bring up the calendar. It should just be in one place. Thanks!

  5. Appointments - in the web interface, relocate the Appointment Name field to below start/stop boxes

    This request is from Boston Public Library. When the patron schedules an appointment, after selecting the box of time, the appointment window appears where the patron can enter an appointment name and start and stop times. They would like for the Appointment Name field to be listed after the start and stop time boxes because the time boxes are required fields, so they would like the patron's attention on those fields. The Appointment Name is not required, and it is a little confusing to the patron as to what the patron should name the appointment.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. Allow users to select multiple dates/date spans in the Aeon appointment 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…

  12. Support alternate date formats in web date pickers

    In both the Scheduled Date calendar and Appointment calendars, Aeon should support alternate (non-US) date formats, such as DD/MM/YYYY.

  14. Form-specific Status text

    Not all requests are the same, so not all web forms are the same semantically, so the status text on a form may benefit from being customized to the form semantics or origin. Right now, SLShowRequest and SLEditRequest in Customization Manager handle status lines for all requests. If we want to have different text for, say, the Photoduplication form from the Monograph form, we have to have empty values for SLShowRequest and SLEditRequest, and to add text to each form's HTML file. This also means adding text to each form's HTML file that should in fact get the same text.…

  17. Add Appointment Creation ability to API/Endpoints

  18. Allow a patron to copy the primary mailing address information to the secondary address fields

    The University of Pittsburgh uses both the main address and secondary address blocks on the registration pages for their patrons. For non-affiliates, they want to capture permanent and local/work addresses; for affiliates, they want to capture permanent and local/campus addresses. They would like for some kind of button that allows the patron to automatically populate the secondary address fields if the address was the same for both address blocks - similar to shipping and billing addresses on e-commerce sites.

  20. 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.
