  3. Pull location data from ArchivesSpace into new Aeon requests made via the ArchivesSpace Aeon Fulfillment Plugin

    The University of Southern California Libraries would like the ArchivesSpace Aeon Fulfillment Plugin to pull container location information from ArchivesSpace into new requests made via the plugin. The location "title" from ArchivesSpace (e.g., "Grand, 2, Bookstacks [Row: 103, Section: 1, Shelf: 1]") could export into the Aeon request's Location or SubLocation field. Ideally, if a user submits a request for an Archival Object that is linked to multiple containers, the fulfillment plugin would create a separate Aeon request for each container (with each container's corresponding location title from ArchivesSpace).

  4. Allow one request to have associated Activities, Appointments, etc

    If a Transaction could be turned into a Parent transaction or some such thing, it would be helpful for associating one request with multiple activities, appointments, etc

  6. 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.

  7. 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)

  8. Aeon scheduling: block off Saturday/Sunday/weekend

    We would like appt scheduling options to automatically block out the weekend so that it doesn't count in 1) the "lead time" or 2) for available appt requests.

  9. Material cancelation= appointment cancelation

    When a user cancels their request for materials, Aeon should ask the user if they will be adding new materials, in order to keep the appointment or ask the user if they want to cancel the appointment.

  10. Modify Long Text custom fields to truly be Long Text

    The new custom fields are fantastic, with one exception: the Long Text field is still limited to 255 characters.

    Ideally, this limit would be removed and the Long Text field would be NVARCHAR(MAX).

    At the risk of saying "well, that's easy," having a "LongText NVARCHAR(MAX)" field definition in the CustomFieldValues table seems reasonable enough.

  11. Support for custom activity emails

    Need the ability to send custom emails specific to an Aeon site rather than just the general UserAddedToActivity when notifying a user that they've been added to an activity.

  12. Allow users to select multiple dates/date spans in the Aeon front-facing calendar

    We desperately need for users to be able to choose more than one date on the calendar via a single request form. For researchers visiting for one week, for example, we would like them to be able to select their needed materials (from a finding aid, for example), and then be able to select the entire week they propose to visit, as opposed to having to submit a form for each day they want to visit (what if they are viewing one large collection for that entire week, for example - now they have to submit a form for each…

  13. Make the "Create Requests" button accessible from the Requests/Process tab.

    Currently, when you click on a user's Request tab, that option is not available and you have to click out to the Home tab.

  14. Cloned Requests Inheriting the status of original request?

    Is it possible for cloned requests to inherit the status of the original requests instead of the requests starting over in Awaiting Request Processing? We would like to be able to clone requests and have them retain the same status as the original requests from which they are cloned.

  15. Different parameters for cleared and uncleared users

    We would like the ability to establish different parameters for appointment-making/request-adding for cleared (established) and uncleared (new) users to facilitate paging from the Reading Room.

  16. Symbolic Links support for centralized forms sharing

    We would like to place our forms on a shared network drive for quick access for printing, and so we do not need to distribute forms to individual machines each time we make a small change to a form.

    Since we have many divisions using Aeon, we have many versions of PrintCallslip.doc, for example (and other forms). Since each has the same file name, we need to create sub-directories for each division's forms. So we need symbolic links to be supported to enable this access.

  18. Ability to remove/customize tabs on User form in Customize Layout

  19. Appointment Display

    It would be great if calendar could show both morning and afternoon appointments. It is very confusing for researchers who are scheduling multiple appointments.

  20. Allow users to sort requests by scheduled date & submission status

    All saved and scheduled requests are currently listed in Outstanding Requests, and there isn't a way for users to easily sort out just the requests for their upcoming appointment. There also isn't a good way for them to view when they have an appointment coming up, short of going into each request (and they may have requests scheduled for different days). It would be good if the patron could see the dates they have requests scheduled and the requests scheduled on those dates, as well as be able to sort Submitted vs Saved requests.
