  1. 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.

  2. Add a tooltip or other message to the Actions dropdown when a user does not own the request.

    When a user is associated with a proxy or an activity, they can see the associated requests but cannot manage them. The Actions menu will appear blank as no action can be taken. For clarity, a tooltip or other message should display here indicating the user cannot manage requests they did not create.

  3. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin: Ability to hide request button at specific record levels

    Currently, you can configure the "requestable archival record levels" setting in the plugin so that the Aeon request button is disabled at specified record levels in ArchivesSpace. It would be helpful to have the option to completely hide the button at those specified record levels where users cannot make requests.

  6. Rename Taiwan on registration form

    We had a patron bring this issue to our attention. Right now, when a patron registers in Aeon, the country description for Taiwan is "Taiwan, Province of China." As the patron stated, "I’m aware that many in America are not aware of the political sensitivities around this issue, but at the moment we are still an independent country (which most of us in Taiwan prefer!), so to say we are a province of China is untrue and politically incorrect! Perhaps you can make a note of this to your web designer!"
    Is this something that could be updated on the…

  7. 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.

  8. Add unique tracking entry when patron has downloaded electronically delivered file

    No tracking entry is added when files are downloaded from the user's account after photoduplication delivery. Add entry in tracking table to indicate file was downloaded and make visible in both web and staff client tracking tables for each transaction.

  9. Ability for users to view and print past (paid) invoices, and staff to print statement of paid invoices via the client.

    When a user wants a statement of paid invoices for reimbursement from their institution or other issues, there's no great way to get that for them once the orders are paid and delivered. We have to manually go in and resend each paid invoice, or they have to go into each separate transaction/order.

  10. Allow InvoiceNumber to be visible in the Aeon client

    Aeon automatically generates an invoice number for each transaction when an invoice is generated. However, the InvoiceNumber is not visible in any grid in the client. The field can be added, but no data displays.

    The field also should be able to be added to the Billing tab.

  12. 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,

  13. Post Request via Aeon API

    We need the ability to POST requests to Aeon (after acquiring an authentication token). We do not want users to be sent to the Aeon site and leave our finding aids site when making a request, so we would prefer to submit the request in the background. This seems like the most basic integration one could want, yet it's missing from the current API.

  14. Aeon - ArchivesSpace client addon - request for more field mapping options

    The University of Arkansas has requested the following mapping options for the ArchivesSpace client addon for Aeon: (1) Map "conditions governing use" note to the Aeon EADNumber field; (2) map location of top container information to the Aeon ItemSubLocation field; (3) for agents that are creators, pull the name from the Sort Name field instead of the Primary Name field (which often contains only the surname); (4) Ability to import the child and grandchild container type and indicator fields (this is not included with the ArchivalObjectInstance field in the addon); (5) Map component identifier to Aeon ItemCallNumber field; and (6)…

  15. Add option to search for user by Organization in client User and Request search

    Some libraries receive requests frequently by members of certain organizations like news media, law firms, etc. It would be useful to search by Organization and return results lists for users associated with that organization or requests made by users with that organization. This would help when staff know someone from an organization made a request but they aren't sure who the user is.

  17. Improve request processing for digitized content

    If staff have a way to flag that an item is already digitized (perhaps import a field from ArchivesSpace), show container information that items are the same, but can be managed separately. Add logic to ask user if they want digitized or physical version. Auto-close digitized requests to finished queue and email patron to let them know that an alternate copy is available.

  18. Add key or checkbox to allow sites to determine if a specific field should clone to a new request.

    Ex: if a user places a request but includes a range of boxes, staff will need to clone the request and update the barcode (ItemNumber). If the barcode field is set not to clone, staff can add the correct barcode to each cloned request.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
