  1. Print an invoice from any screen

    We would like to be able to print an invoice from any screen (like you can for a callslip) instead of having to open each request, open the billing tab, and them print the invoice.

  2. Add integration for requesting from Hyrax

    UCSC is in the process of creating a new Hyrax based Digital Asset Management System to replace our current system, CONTENTdm. We're at the stage that we're starting to look at implementing Aeon within the new DAMS and would like to option to add a request link to Hyrax. http://hyr.ax/

  3. Keyboard Shortcut to close forms

    It would be helpful to have a keyboard shortcut command to close the active form to keep the clicking to a minimum when working with large groups of requests. It would also be very helpful for the reading room check-in process.

  4. Ability to search on a single day other than today or yesterday using custom search

    When creating a custom search in the staff client, if you are searching on a date field, currently there is no way to search on a single day unless it is today or yesterday. Sometimes I need to create a query of all requests that came in on a specific day, for example last Friday, and there is not a way to easily do this unless you select a range of days and then filter the results.

  5. Integrate Aeon activities with course reserves

    Sites would like the ability to integrate activities with course reserves software. Specifically make materials used in classes visible in Blackboard, etc.

    Also, a means to manage Ares/Aeon interoperability, specifically the ability to scan and place images of special collections materials on Reserve (sending records between to two systems) for class assignments, so as to not overwhelm the reading room when a large class is assigned to do something in SPEC as an assignment.

  6. Ability to see if a user is signed into the reading room from request grid

    We would love a way to see if a user is signed in from the request grids so we can prioritize our paging, etc.

  7. Active requests button in activity

    Rather than accidentally change all requests in an activity using Shift+click function, please add an "active requests" button like in User profiles so we can filter out cancelled requests from activity view.

  8. Support custom database users in the Aeon Installer

  9. Allow Aeon to ping paging staff to alert them to new requests.

    Right now, our pages need to walk past the computer workstation every 5-10 minutes, interrupting their work, to check whether there are new reading room requests for material. If Aeon could buzz their phones or push a notification through an app when there are new requests, that could allow workers to fluidly work without missing new requests.

  10. Have the Aeon web application send an email when an error occurs.

    It could be helpful if the Aeon web application reported errors by sending an email using a new template. This could inform admins of errors they may otherwise be unaware of in a timely manner.

  11. Problem with "Item Cleanup with the System Manager"

    When the "DaysBeforeElectronicDeliveryCleanup" key is set, the System Manager is not JUST changing the photoduplication status to finished for the orders whose files it has deleted, but it sends all the orders whose photoduplication status is delivered and photoduplication status date is over DaysBeforeElectronicDeliveryCleanup to finished status.

    The cleanup process should be really driven by the name of files deleted by the system manager. The system manager should really leave other orders alone, no matter what status they have or how long they have that status. Otherwise,
    1. if somehow an order was moved to the delivered status and its…

  13. Remove flags from multiple requests at once

    We'd love to have the ability to "batch remove" flags from multiple requests in one action. Ideally this would provide an option to either 1) remove all flags from all selected requests, or 2) choose which flags to remove from selected requests.

  14. Have option to add fields from ReadingRoomHistory table to the User Record Detail window

    Have an option to add fields from ReadingRoomHistory table to the User Record Detail tab layout, so that staff can quickly see the last time a user was signed in to a selected Reading Room.

  16. Filter notifications on web to only show emails sent to the user

    Right now, Aeon shows all notifications (emails) sent regarding a transaction. It's possible some of those emails may be internal in nature but there isn't a way to filter those out currently.

    Either certain emails could be marked as "internal", during the email creation process and/or email routing entry, or emails could be filtered to only show those where the user's email address is in the TO or CC fields. This would be an issue if the user changed their email address, though.

  17. When users log in to Aeon Web, provide feedback for disavowed usernames

    Occasionally online users will create a new Aeon account not realizing that they have an existing account. We merge the records and disavow the duplicate, but when users try to log in with the disavowed username, the "Username not in database" message does not appear, just the message "Password incorrect"--because the username does exist, just disavowed. Can we have a separate message specifically to address logins with disavowed usernames, distinct from logins with active usernames?

  18. Recommendation system to suggest items to researchers based on users with the same research topic

    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.

  19. Have all notifications sent from the system appear under "Notifications" in the web client

    Custom notifications do not appear under "Notifications" in the web client. Given that system-relayed emails are routinely bounced by email servers (this is a recurring problem for us), it would be helpful if emails that appear in the client on the history tab under "email history" were visible there.

  20. "Request for" for multiple users

    Would be very useful for class reserves to be able to put one request in multiple users account using "Request For"
