  1. Photoduplication - block requests once a patron has reached a page limit

    From the University of Tulsa: Some of our collections contain huge troves of unpublished manuscripts, which has caused issues with copyright violations. Patrons can request scans of up to 200 pages from a single collection in a 6-month period. Is there a feature that will help us automate that policy? Flagging accounts, or blocking those requests from going through once the system records that a patron has successfully received a certain page count, or even stopping the request before it goes to submission?

  2. ASpace request fulfillment plugin: allow customizable :restrictions_message to be configured per Local Access Restrictions Type

    Peabody Essex Museum suggested it would be useful to have different restrictions messages per Local Access Restriction Types as the restrictions vary and they would like the messaging to be different.

  3. Ability to batch edit requests

    We would appreciate being able to batch edit requests. I'm sure there are other batch editing use cases, but one that occurs regularly for us if the need to add the same note to multiple request tickets. It can take quite a bit of time to open/edit multiple tickets. In addition to the ability to batch edit various notes fields, adding/updating the scheduled date field would also be useful.

  4. Add ability to change language for cancellations on the web

    In the cancelled list of requests in the web Aeon account, the reason for cancellation says 'Cancelled by Customer' (this is hard-coded and not a reason for cancellation that we can change). We would love to be able to change the language because we do not refer to our patrons/researchers as customers and it might be confusing as well.

  5. Notification when closing Aeon if users are still signed into a reading room

    Sometimes people forget to sign users out of the reading room at the end of the day, due to various factors. Would it be possible to have a pop-up notification that appears when the Aeon application is being closed, saying 'there are still users signed into the reading room'? This way, staff will be reminded to sign those users out before closing Aeon at the end of the day.

  6. Pop-up Addon Allow for more than one instance

    The new Pop-up Addon is great. A good enhancement would be to allow for more than one type of pop-up based on different fields, rather than only being able to have one.

  7. Add more granular location data mapping to ArchivesSpace Fulfillment Plugin

    Some institutions would like to bring isolated location data from ArchivesSpace into Aeon. Consider adding mapping for location coordinate label 1, coordinate indicator 1, coordinate label 2, coordinate indicator 2, coordinate label 3, coordinate indicator 3, (6 fields total) to allow for more discrete location information.

  8. Appointments that are invalid for selection based on MinLeadDays shouldn't be selectable when creating new requests

    Currently, if a request is submitted for an appointment within the MinLeadDays on EADRequest, the request is submitted to Awaiting User Review, without indication to the patron that they cannot request for the selected appointment. Aeon should not allow users to submit requests for appointments that are within the MinLeadDays.

  9. Mapping ArchivesSpace "container profile" name to Aeon requests via the ArchivesSpace/Aeon Request Fulfillment Plugin

    The University of Southern California Libraries would like the ArchivesSpace Aeon Fulfillment Plugin to pull each container profile "name" from ArchivesSpace into new Aeon requests made via the plugin. The only value that we would like to map from the ArchivesSpace container profile record is the container profile "name" (title).

    Currently, ArchivesSpace container profile values are not listed as available options in the Aeon OpenURLMapping table.

  11. Advance # of days to request - users signed into reading room condition

    My understanding is that in Appointments 2.0, the advance # of days to book an appointment and requests will be split into two keys. In an forthcoming Appointments release, is it possible to create a condition or third key related to users signed into the reading room?

    Our issue right now is that we have users who are in the RR who need to place requests for the afternoon paging time but they cannot because they are limited by the advance days limit - so staff have to ask researchers what they want, tell them to save for later, and…

  12. Remove display of culturally insensitive color names

    The Aeon options menu includes choices to change the color of the search display when users are disavowed, blocked, or anonymous. The color picker menu includes colors with culturally insensitive names. Aeon should use an alternate color picker menu with hex colors.

  13. Pop-up instructions post-submission of a request form

    Would it be possible to have a pop-up or some sort of predictive instructions so that when a user fills out an Aeon request form and submits it, a pop-up asks the user 'do you want to fill out another request? Yes or no?" and if 'yes,' brings the user back to the same request form as before, and if 'no,' brings the user to the Home screen or another page in the account. We have users who fill out a request form and then do not know how to get back to the form to fill out additional requests…

  14. Allow reading rooms to be reordered in Appointment Scheduling tab

    The order in which reading rooms are created dictates how they display in the Reading Room dropdown on the web pages. Add support to drag the reading rooms to change the display order.

  15. Convert Department field to free-text dropdown

    Department field is a dropdown by default, but most sites would prefer a free-text field and instead use an ItemInfo field. Allow Department field to be coded as dropdown or free-text in web and convert Department database field to dropdown/free-text (like Activity Type and Location fields)

  16. Ability to text patrons

    The University of Washington would like to send text messages to patrons about a variety of notifications from Aeon, provided that the patron has requested to be texted. There is an existing UserVoice here specifically to send appointment notifications: https://uservoice.atlas-sys.com/forums/568075-aeon-ideas/suggestions/44973538-opt-in-text-message-reminders-for-appointments

    We need a setting which prevents a user from booking simultaneous or overlapping appointments in two reading rooms at the same time.

  18. Cancelling an appointment shouldn't automatically cancel requests

    I would also like to see cancelling an appointment not auto route a request to request finished. I would rather see it disassociated with an appointment so that staff can route / clone appropriately.

  19. Merging users: ability to key in letters to find user records or search for names

    If I am not mistaken, the Merge Users function appears to require me to scroll through two (very long, in our case) lists of accounts, and click "Merge" only after having highlighted the duplicate accounts -- one on the left side and one on the right.

    It's time consuming to do this -- so maybe there could be a search bar at the top of both lists, where you can enter the first few letters of any given names.

    And/or: you could have the ability to enter the first few letters of the name to bring you to that record.…

  20. Changing client passwords -- Add support for disclosing requirements

    Currently, when changing a staff password, the interface presents a person only with a field for entering the password, another for confirming it, a submit button, and a cancel button. If the password doesn't meet complexity requirements as set in Customization Manager, an error is thrown, but only with the message "Password does not meet staff password requirements".

    There should be a customizable way to convey to staff resetting their password what the complexity requirements are, both with the initial reset form and with the error message. (Not just reposting the regex, if that crosses anyone's mind, because reading regex…
