  1. Allow request submittal after appointment StartTime has begun

    Many reading rooms allow request submittal after the appointment time starts. If the Appointment mindleaddays is set to 0, this should allow the user to submit requests until the appointment StopTime.

    Alternately, if lead time is required, add a new key to indicate whether requests can be submitted while the user is signed in for their appointment.

  2. Deliver to Reading Room Flag

    It would be great if the "Deliver to Reading Room" flag was automatically removed from a request when the request was moved to the "Checked Out" status.

  3. Change custom batch process via staff template

    We have a lot of custom batch processes set up, to the point where the list of options can be unwieldly to look at. We would love to be able to customize which batch processes appear for a specific staff template, so that staff are only seeing the options they need to use.

  4. Information passed from another system into Aeon with a diacritics issue

    I've recently noticed that diacritics appear as weird symbols when they are inserted into Aeon from ArchiveSpace.

  5. Export appointments from Aeon client as calendar files

    The University of Tulsa would like the ability to export appointment information from the Aeon client and add it to their department calendar (they use Google) where they record other non-Aeon appointments. (I can also see this benefiting another library that shares their reading room with university archives, which doesn't use Aeon.) For now, UTulsa will CC the person in charge of managing the department calendar whenever the Aeon appointment confirmation is sent (which includes the appointment details).

  6. Allow for hyperlinks in the unrequestable alert in ArchivesSpace plugin

    We'd like to be able to point the user to guidance on how to submit requests from ArchivesSpace to Aeon from the finding aid by adding a hyperlink to the unrequestable alert in ArchivesSpace that leads to one of our getting started guides.

  7. Automated email to remind patrons that their reproductions are about to expire

    Purdue University would like for Aeon to send email reminders to patrons for when their uploaded reproduction files are about to expire (electronic delivery cleanup).

  8. Add appointment status for "Needs to be Rescheduled" with associated email allowing site to notify user and request they reschedule

    When confirming an appointment, staff may find that they cannot confirm the appointment but do not want to cancel it. Instead, they want to ask the patron to reschedule. Add an email template and an appointment status to reflect this.

  9. Email notifications for new requests

    Would it be possible to add notifications to staff via email when new requests come in? The pop-up notification that happens now is not always useful for staff, since often staff are not at their desks - they are in the stacks or elsewhere, and do not see the notification for awhile.

  10. Enable Recurring Appointments

    Some of our researchers are requesting recurring appointments in our Reading Room, but we currently have to create a separate appointment for each individual date. It would be so helpful to be able to schedule those appointments all at once!

  13. Add "Ready for Paging" status and make available via web Actions menu

    Some reading rooms would like the option for patrons to notify staff when materials should be paged, either before or during an appointment/reading room visit. Adding a Ready for Paging status to the web actions menu would allow patrons to submit requests when ready. Like Remove from Hold, this action should be available only when a request is in a specific status - Awaiting Request Processing. There should be a key or other setting allowing sites to turn this option on or off depending on their retrieval process.

  14. Import location information from ArchivesSpace in requests received by other external systems.

    If a request is received in Aeon from a system that is not the system of record like ArchivesSpace, auto retrieve the matching record ArchivesSpace location and update the Aeon request. Sometimes external systems are not updated real time and the location may have changed. This would prevent staff going to retrieve items in the wrong location and then needing to do detective work to find the correct location in ASpace and retrieve again.

  15. Allow for custom fields to be added to patron appointment request

    California State University L.A. would like to have a drop-down field on the appointment form for the patron to choose the purpose of their appointment. They don't want the field to be on the request form, because the patron would have to select the purpose for each item request for that appointment if the field was required. And they have many returning researchers, so they don't want the field to be on the user registration, as it is more specific to the appointment/reason for the visit.

  17. Activities - incorporate some course reserve-type functions

    Purdue University has a number of classes (which will be Aeon activities) where students go to the reading room to look at course materials on their own time. The students will first make an appointment in the Aeon patron web interface. Then when they arrive onsite, the requests will be cloned from the activity and checked out to the student. Purdue would like for there to be more visible connectivity/relationships between the activity record, the appointment, and the cloned requests. This information would be helpful for reporting purposes, and will also show how classes are used in Archives and Special…

  18. Add option to create a list of users who should not be able to create an account

    For users previously banned from the library, add information so those users cannot create Aeon accounts

  19. AlmaPrimoDefinitiveCatalogAddon - Import copy number from item record

    In this new version of the AlmaPrimo addon, we are no longer able to import the copy number (copyid imported from the item record). In the previous AlmaPrimo VE catalog addon we were able to do this. We would like this functionality to be restored to the addon.

  20. Dynamic statuses for remaining days to view uploaded scans

    Boston Public Library would like for there to be a dynamic status line that lets patrons know how many days they have left to download an electronically delivered scan on the Aeon web interface. There should be a dynamic status for each available download if there are more that one available at the same time.
