  1. Have requests associated with activities placed from the ERE form route to activity queues

    Hi,

    We noticed that when we place requests associated with activities from ArchivesSpace via the ERE form, they don't route to "Awaiting activity processing" We think this is because the requests are created before they are submitted, and the patron adds the activity information after the request is create in Aeon. We may be able to get around this with a routing rule . But for sites like Beinecke that route requests out of "Awaiting Activity Processing" based on activity type, it will be more complicated. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  2. ArchivesSpace addon for Aeon client - ability to import location information

    Would like the ability to import information from the Location record in ASpace, specifically from the Location title field, as part of the 'Import Instance' functionality. The info should write to the Aeon Location field in the transaction record.

  3. Allow NewAuthRegistration to behave like NewUserRegistration after remote authentication

    When patrons register via AeonAuth (non-shib), they are taken to the First Time Users page, asked to click through to agree to the policies, and then directed to the registration page.

    NewAuthRegistration (via Shib) behaves differently and there is only one form where both the First Time policies and registration form are present after authentication.

    Sites would like for patrons to see the First Time Users page separately from NewAuthRegistration.

  4. Copy and paste from cells in tables

    On the queue and flag tables, we used to be able to click a cell and copy just that information. We can't after the new version update. A fix for this would be incredibly beneficial.

  5. Mark staff as inactive in staff manager

    It would be nice to have the ability to mark staff as Inactive in the staff client. Our staff list is starting to grow as people rotate through, especially students and project archivists. Marking staff inactive would allow us to filter the list, and also it could be a convenient way to prevent disable inactive accounts from logging in.

  6. Allow staff to send one email for multiple requests (batch email)

    Would it be possible to highlight a set of requests from one user, and send a single email to the user?

    It would be great to highlight all the requests from each single user at once and then send one collective email to the user.

  7. Add the option to clone requests to the activity form processing ribbon

    Staff would like the ability to clone multiple requests from an activity to an individual user in bulk. A current workaround is to clone the activity, select the appropriate requests to clone to the new user, then when the requests are created, clear the association to the activity and delete the activity, but this is pretty cumbersome.

  8. Create functionality to allow patrons to schedule appointments.

    Create functionality to allow patrons to schedule appointments.This would also involve a tracking table where if a patron needs to reschedule the scheduled date, the change would be tracked (for reporting purposes). This might also involved the option to cancel an appointment (without necessarily cancelling requests) or to record when a patron is a walk-in.

  9. Ability to have a virtual reading room

    Several Aeon users at RBMS 2018 have talked about the need for a virtual reading room to provide controlled access to born digital/digitized materials

  11. Specify a hold location in its own field for each item

    Sites could benefit from a "hold location" field in the Transactions table for each item. When the item is placed on the hold shelf, staff can designate that location (similar to choosing a table when signing a person into the reading room). That value would then display in the grid for all items on hold and would automatically clear when the item was checked back in without staff having to remember to clear it.

  12. Add tracking to request history when item is uploaded

    No tracking entry is added when files are uploaded for photoduplication requests. Add entry in tracking table to indicate file was uploaded as there is currently no way to know aside from clicking the Upload Item button a second time to get an dialog box indicating a file has already been uploaded.

  13. Support for the Square payment gateway

    The Boston Athenaeum uses Square for our other payments and we would love to be able to use it with Aeon as well, rather than using another payment gateway. https://squareup.com/developers

  14. Allow users in the Staff Manager to delete grid settings for multiple staff at once

    Currently, grid settings have to be deleted individually for each user in the Staff Manager. If a change is made to the layout template and grid settings need to be cleared, it can be cumbersome and time-consuming to select each staff person individually and click Delete Grid Settings. The option to select multiple staff and clear grid settings for all users selected would be preferable.

  15. Adjust request limit logic so that photoduplication requests do not count against request limit.

    Requests submitted for photoduplication go to Awaiting Request Processing | Awaiting Order Processing initially. Because the requests hit Awaiting Request Processing, photoduplication requests currently count against a patron's request limit until they are moved into a photoduplication queue.

    Sites should have the option to choose whether photoduplication requests count against a patron's limit.

  16. Accessibility for Aeon?

    Hi, I'm sorry if this has already been discussed, but is there any information about Aeon accessibility for people with disabilities? We have to do an accessibility audit, and the person I'm working with did a quick look and said he already saw problems.

  17. Create addon to add an expiration date to a queue and automatically route requests once the date parameter has passed

    In the staff client, requests in the Item on Hold queue have no expiration, but most sites allow holds for 1-2 weeks. Create an addon that allows site to determine queue and number of days for requests to stay in that queue. When the number of days has elapsed, automatically route the request to another queue. EX: if a request is in Item on Hold and is allowed to be on hold for 2 weeks, set expiration for 14 days. When 14 days has passed, automatically route the request to Remove from Hold so staff can reshelve.

  18. 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.

  19. When in Duplication Order Grids, add Print Call Slip to the standard ribbon

    It is common for us to pull an item from the stacks because a remote user has requested a duplication order, and we manage these workflows through the Order queues/grids, however, we have to open individual requests to print call slips, or leave this grid view and look for those requests in a Request queue/grid. It would be GREAT if printing the call slip was something that could be done for both individual requests, and multiple requests in this grid view.

  20. 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 appears with…
