  1. Ability to import affiliate user records into a validation table

    The University of Baltimore also uses ILLiad and Ares. They import their affiliate user records into a validation table. When a new affiliate user logs into the web interface, their info from the validation table populates the registration form. They would like this functionality in Aeon.

  3. Add transaction status photoduplication status name columns to bundle in staff layout template

    Currently, only the Transaction and Photoduplication status IDs appear in the bundle grid. It would be useful for staff to see the full status name, as most are not familiar with the ID.

    Additionally, any changes made to this grid should save to the layout template (at individual and template edit levels).

  6. Allow partial anonymizing of user data and request history.

    This would allow Aeon sites to anonymize part of a users data/request history to protect their privacy while also maintaining statistics long term. For example: an active users request history may extend beyond the 5 year data collection period maintained for audit. The user would retain their access to Aeon, but all requests prior to the 5 year collection period could be anonymized. Allowing the site to maintain their statistics and ensure user privacy.

  7. Add electronic delivery undelete functionality

    HTML page is available for this but no button or transaction-related functionality exists to allow for users to undelete any delivered files if desired (before expiration).

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. When performing search in web, retain selected radio button (active vs all)

    When performing a search using the web search, if a user selects the radio option to Search All, it automatically resets to Active after the search results display. Should be set to retain selection.

  11. 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…

  12. 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)…

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Aeon - ArchivesSpace addon - allow for importing a container instance associated with an access record

    The University of Arkansas would like for the Import Container option to be available in the ArchivesSpace addon for the Aeon client, for accession records that have a container instance. Right now, only the Import Citation option is available for accession records. The container and associated location information would be helpful for staff to have in order to retrieve materials.
