  1. Add appointment confirmation workflow

    Add a key to toggle on or off appointment confirmation. Provide a way for staff to see a list of new appointments and add Confirm Appointment button to the Appointment record.

  2. Activities - include Activity ID in activities tab view of active activities

    The University of Pittsburgh has adapted the batch import template to allow for the import of requests into more than one activity. They did that by adding the activity ID field to the template. It would be easier to get the activity IDs if they were included in the fields that display when a staff person clicks on the Activities tab in the staff client and views the current activities. From this view, the table can be exported to Excel. It would be helpful if the activity ID was included in the export. The Activity ID field is not currently…

  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!

  6. Create separate key for min lead days for request, separate from min lead days for appointment

    Allow staff to set a min lead days for when an appointment should be scheduled and a separate min lead days for when any associated requests should be scheduled.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Segmented request limits, per location

    For sites with multiple sites, it would be great to set segmented request limits per location instead of one shared request limit across all locations.

  11. Validate fields in staff client

    A method to validate / require data fields in the staff client, but using separate rules from the web validation.

    We're starting to get too many entries where staff are manually entering data that is not consistent. Even just making a field required would be a big win for us (ie, Call Number)

  12. Add history and tracking entries for Appointments

    Currently, no history or tracking entries are available for Appointment. This makes tracking down issues and troubleshooting difficult. Including a history tab for Appointments would be very useful to determine when appointments are created in the client vs the web, when appointment information is changed or updated, etc.

  13. Adding waitlist functionality for appointment module

    We would love to see a waitlist functionality for users to sign up for when our reading room is full and a cancellation occurs. It would make slotting existing users in much easier as we're now trying to do this manually / on the fly as cancellations occur.

  14. Customizable Print Template for Appointment Calendar

    Allow for the customization of the print template used for appointment calendar (as a word doc) so it can only show working hours and other visual changes

  15. 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.

  16. Automatically filter out disavowed users from user search

    When a user has created multiple accounts, one account will be disavowed via the user merge process. However, that account is typically listed first in search results. When a disavowed user's account is selected in a grid, the special highlighting/text color does not persist. Thus it is easy for staff to get confused and click the wrong user record. It would be helpful to have a button like the Active/All requests toggle, set to active by default, to automatically filter disavowed users out of search results to minimize confusion and prevent staff from re-clearing disavowed users.

  19. Add ability to integrate Aeon with a webcam

    Staff would like the ability to import patron photos directly from webcam software rather than saving the photo and uploading from their workstation.

  20. Appointment configuration for "overflow" spaces

    Add option for "overflow" spaces to be booked by appointment when primary reading room space(s) are full. These rooms would not be available for appointment booking on a regular basis, but would display if all spaces in the primary reading room are full.
