  1. 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.

  2. Include "Notes" field when cloning requests.

    When a request is cloned either within the Aeon Client, or from the online platform, can the information present in the "Notes" field of the original request transfer into the new request? For example: our local/staff notes, which indicate unique item locations populate into this field. When cloning, these notes do not transfer, which impacts turn around time and requires staff to either look at and copy notes from the original request, or locate the material in our ILS to find the notes. The latter happening more often with researcher cloned requests, as staff are unaware that it has been…

  3. User email and transaction emails - show in user history

    It would be helpful to see the history of all emails sent to a user in the account history tab even if they are sent from the transaction level.

  4. Custom Searches saved to Quick Access Toolbar should remain after search is closed

    Custom searches added to the quick access toolbar disappear once the search tab is closed. It would be nice if they persisted so staff could perform routine daily searches from the toolbar without having to reopen the search tab everytime.

  5. Queue-specific filters

    I'd like to be able to create a filter that is unique in our Staff Template to unique queues. Right now any time I have a filter applied, the filter automatically applies to any other queue, but for certain queues it would be helpful, for instance, to automatically only view a single day's requests.

  6. Add key in customization manager to allow automatic user clearance

    This should be a yes/no value since many sites have a security process and want to clear users on arrival. But if a site does not want to clear users, this key would automatically set new users (specifically those with SSO credentials affiliated with the institution) to Cleared on registration.

  7. Increase size of the icons that appear in the Aeon staff client

    Georgia Archives has asked that the icons (e.g. refresh, "heart" button, tabs navigation button) in the Aeon staff client be larger so that it is easier for staff to see them and use them.

  8. Allow ILLiad TN (from Aeon-ILLiad integration mapping) to merge into email templates

    Sites would like to be able to include the ILLiad TN when contacting patrons. It's not currently possible to include this field in the email templates.

  9. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin: Ability to import Conditions Governing Use note

    I am submitting this on behalf of an Aeon library, and I also think the enhancement would be useful to other libraries. The library would like for the contents of the Conditions Governing Use note in ArchivesSpace to import into Aeon. Many libraries use this note in conjunction with the Conditions Governing Access note (which does currently import into Aeon).

  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. Increase the character limit of the To Address field in email templates

    Submitted on behalf of an Aeon user: My staff discovered that there is a character limit in the “To:” field in the email template section of the Aeon Customization Manager. This prevents us from emailing all of the staff in our Researcher Services group. It also prevents Outlook from converting the list of emails to the more recognizable “Reading Room Group” email group.

    We have frequent need for emailing multiple people, whether its our own staff or its participants in an activity, etc. Can that character limit be removed?

  12. Add functionality to add conditional fields and text based on form inputs

    Many sites wish to display or hide fields and text based on specific data inputs, a specific format or checking For Publication are two examples. It would be helpful to create a secondary form that could display this text or the fields before patrons submit their request form.

  13. Ability to customize new request notifications

    I'd love to be able to customize the new request notifications. An example would be to to turn off notifications for requests that are part of activities.

  14. Remove SecondaryAddressActive key from Customization Manager

    UseSecondaryAddress was added in Aeon 5.0 and controls whether the secondary address fields are displayed in the web interface.

    Need to investigate whether SecondaryAddressActive is used for anything before removing.

  15. Create keys for or add additional fields to CustomDropDown table to indicate on which form a field should be displayed

    Example: Fields like Status are often hard-coded on NewUserRegistration and NewAuthRegistration if the site wants some statuses that are internal-only or if the statuses should display differently for affiliate vs non-affiliate users.

    Including keys in the customization manager or some way to indicate which options should be included on which form would allow for more flexibility with those options and eliminate the need to hard-code the values on the web forms.

  16. ArchivesSpace-Aeon Fulfillment Plugin: Ability to map specific values from specific fields so that a specific request form can display

    A library is using the ArchivesSpace field "instanceinstancetype" to pass the value "Graphic Materials," which is used to denote audio visual materials. They would like for the ArchivesSpace-Aeon fulfillment plugin to pass this field to Aeon so that the Aeon Document Type field will be populated with "AudioVisual" and the AudioVisual request form will open.

  18. Color Code Photoduplication

    When using the queues, especially photo duplication ones, it would be helpful to be able to assign a color to the entire transaction that either highlights the full TN in the queue or change the text color. Example for usage would be for rush orders.

  19. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin - Import data from Rights Statement sub-record

    I am submitting this on behalf of an Aeon library, and I also think the enhancement would be useful to other libraries. The library would like for the contents of the Rights Statement sub-record in ArchivesSpace to import into Aeon. This is not possible right now, as the Rights Statement does not publish to the PUI. However, it has been a frequent request for the ASpace development team, so if they do make the Rights Statement sub-record available on the PUI, some Aeon users would want that data to import into Aeon.

  20. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin - Import Creators at Collection level

    The Aeon Fulfillment Plugin for the ASpace PUI can currently import Creators that are added to the component level in a resource record, but it cannot import Creators that are added at the collection level. I am submitting this idea on behalf of an Aeon library that adds creators at the collection level - this is common practice, so the plugin should also be able to import Creators from a collection-level resource record.
