  1. Permit scheduling of recurring Web Alerts

    We want to schedule our "Reminder: no paging on Saturdays" web alert to display on Fridays and Saturdays only. Currently, we have to move the Active Date and Expiration Date by hand each week.

  2. Display creation date field in user record in the staff client

    The University of Arkansas would like for the creation date of when the patron user record is created to display on the Details tab in the user record. Right now, this field is only available for view in the user search results grid. It is not explicitly shown in the history tab, either. If the site is using the New User Email, they can infer the creation date from when that email is sent in the email history, but if they are not using the system New User Email template, there is no other way from the user record itself…

  3. Create deadline for submitting requests to an activity

    I'd like to close an activity for additional submissions from nonstaff by a certain date. That way I would have adequate time to pull materials and don't need to constantly monitor activities to see if faculty or students added items.

  4. Schedule Staff Notifications in Aeon Client

    We have recently been thinking about how we can improve our staff communications in the Reading Room. We often have instances where staff need to be alerted to special arrangements, updates or events in the Reading Room in a timely manner.

    It occurred to me that the functionality we are looking for is much like that available in the Aeon system when alert pop-ups occur for new requests for processing and users waiting to be cleared.

    It would be ideal if editable alerts could be scheduled so that when staff log in to the Aeon Client, a pop-up…

  5. Add a 'Do not ask again' checkbox to the Aeon client update dialog

    Some sites are required to have all client updates performed by IT staff, which must be scheduled in most cases. It would be nice to have an option to disable to update prompt in such cases so that staff are no longer prompted.

  8. Database fields - bigger, better, more flexible

    There have been multiple situations that our life would have been made much easier if we had more flexibility in the Aeon database fields. For example, it is often suggested to use "another unused field" to store data. We often run into the issue that these fields are character limited.

    The max length of any text field seems to 255 characters, which can be totally impractical for some purposes. I am assuming that this might be because of the MS Word mail merge character limit?

    Is there any reason why text fields could not not be expanded to something like…

  10. Allow photoduplication requesting via External Request Endpoint (ERE)

    Requests placed via external requesting (especially from ArchivesSpace) are unable to be turned into photoduplication orders. Patrons or staff must clone the request to a copy order, which creates confusion with duplicate requests.

  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…

  12. Add the ability to schedule partial closures

    Add the ability to schedule partial closures within the customization manager. Because of instruction held frequently in the reading room, I would like to be able to block requesting for specific blocks of time within a day, for example, from 1:00-2:30.

  13. 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.
