  1. Add unique tracking entry when patron has downloaded electronically delivered file

    No tracking entry is added when files are downloaded from the user's account after photoduplication delivery. Add entry in tracking table to indicate file was downloaded and make visible in both web and staff client tracking tables for each transaction.

  2. When performing search in web, retain selected radio button (active vs all)

    When performing a search using the web search, if a user selects the radio option to Search All, it automatically resets to Active after the search results display. Should be set to retain selection.

  3. Rename Taiwan on registration form

    We had a patron bring this issue to our attention. Right now, when a patron registers in Aeon, the country description for Taiwan is "Taiwan, Province of China." As the patron stated, "I’m aware that many in America are not aware of the political sensitivities around this issue, but at the moment we are still an independent country (which most of us in Taiwan prefer!), so to say we are a province of China is untrue and politically incorrect! Perhaps you can make a note of this to your web designer!"
    Is this something that could be updated on the…

  4. Add option to search for user by Organization in client User and Request search

    Some libraries receive requests frequently by members of certain organizations like news media, law firms, etc. It would be useful to search by Organization and return results lists for users associated with that organization or requests made by users with that organization. This would help when staff know someone from an organization made a request but they aren't sure who the user is.

  5. Add ability to adjust sign out time

    Allow staff users to adjust sign out time in the Aeon client. This will allow for accurate statistics and tracking.

  6. Improve request processing for digitized content

    If staff have a way to flag that an item is already digitized (perhaps import a field from ArchivesSpace), show container information that items are the same, but can be managed separately. Add logic to ask user if they want digitized or physical version. Auto-close digitized requests to finished queue and email patron to let them know that an alternate copy is available.

  7. Adjust user expiration process to automatically update the user's expiration date when they submit ChangeUserInformation or ExpiredUsers

    This should not be dependent on the AutoUpdateExpiration key. Many sites want users to expire yearly in order to reagree to reading room policies but do not want the user's expiration date to update anytime the user submits ChangeUserInformation, as that would bypass set user expiration.

  9. Ability for users to view and print past (paid) invoices, and staff to print statement of paid invoices via the client.

    When a user wants a statement of paid invoices for reimbursement from their institution or other issues, there's no great way to get that for them once the orders are paid and delivered. We have to manually go in and resend each paid invoice, or they have to go into each separate transaction/order.

  10. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin - Ability for patrons to make more than one selection in ArchivesSpace

    A library using the Aeon Fulfillment plugin in ArchivesSpace would like for checkboxes to appear at the requestable levels (e.g. file, Item) so that a patron may select more than one resource before using the plugin to log into the Aeon and submit the requests via Aeon. They are essentially looking for a "shopping cart" feature on the ArchivesSpace side.

  11. Allow InvoiceNumber to be visible in the Aeon client

    Aeon automatically generates an invoice number for each transaction when an invoice is generated. However, the InvoiceNumber is not visible in any grid in the client. The field can be added, but no data displays.

    The field also should be able to be added to the Billing tab.

  12. Aeon - ArchivesSpace Fulfillment Plugin - import digital object info

    The University of Arkansas would like to know if a requested ArchivesSpace component has a digital object instance. This would help with reproduction requests so that staff know when a reproduction already exists. They would like for the plugin to be able to import this info into the Aeon request record.

  13. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin - Make request button available on the container list page

    The University of Arkansas would like for the Aeon request button to be available on the container list page in the ArchivesSpace PUI so that a patron can submit a request for an entire box. Many patrons browse by box, so it would be convenient to have the request button available where they are browsing. It would also help with collection-level-only records that have a container list. Since they don't want the request button available at the collection level for records that do have components, this button would be helpful for records that only have a collection-level description (typically resources…

  14. Aeon - ArchivesSpace addon - allow for importing a container instance associated with an access record

    The University of Arkansas would like for the Import Container option to be available in the ArchivesSpace addon for the Aeon client, for accession records that have a container instance. Right now, only the Import Citation option is available for accession records. The container and associated location information would be helpful for staff to have in order to retrieve materials.

  15. Ability to export citations as plain text file

  16. Make cancellation and other status lines editable for payment gateway transactions

    The cancel statuses that display if a payment has been cancelled are not always clear to the patron. Sites would like to be able to edit these message, but they are currently controlled by the DLL. It would be helpful to move these to the HTML code so they can be customized as needed,

  17. Post Request via Aeon API

    We need the ability to POST requests to Aeon (after acquiring an authentication token). We do not want users to be sent to the Aeon site and leave our finding aids site when making a request, so we would prefer to submit the request in the background. This seems like the most basic integration one could want, yet it's missing from the current API.

  18. Allow Aeon photoduplication process to estimate request completion time

    Some Aeon sites charge for reproduction based on staff time and need to include time in an estimate. Alternately, some materials take longer to reproduce than others (ex: oversized or high resolution may take longer) and sites may wish to notify patrons about which requests will take longer or how long certain requests will take.

  19. Add key or checkbox to allow sites to determine if a specific field should clone to a new request.

    Ex: if a user places a request but includes a range of boxes, staff will need to clone the request and update the barcode (ItemNumber). If the barcode field is set not to clone, staff can add the correct barcode to each cloned request.

  20. Create an email to send automatically to patrons to notify them their Aeon account is expiring.

    Create a new default email template to send automatically to patrons to notify them their Aeon account is going to expire.

    Add key to Customization Manager so sites can decide whether to use this email or not.
