  1. Modify Long Text custom fields to truly be Long Text

    The new custom fields are fantastic, with one exception: the Long Text field is still limited to 255 characters.

    Ideally, this limit would be removed and the Long Text field would be NVARCHAR(MAX).

    At the risk of saying "well, that's easy," having a "LongText NVARCHAR(MAX)" field definition in the CustomFieldValues table seems reasonable enough.

  2. Support for custom activity emails

    Need the ability to send custom emails specific to an Aeon site rather than just the general UserAddedToActivity when notifying a user that they've been added to an activity.

  3. Make the "Create Requests" button accessible from the Requests/Process tab.

    Currently, when you click on a user's Request tab, that option is not available and you have to click out to the Home tab.

  4. Cloned Requests Inheriting the status of original request?

    Is it possible for cloned requests to inherit the status of the original requests instead of the requests starting over in Awaiting Request Processing? We would like to be able to clone requests and have them retain the same status as the original requests from which they are cloned.

  5. Symbolic Links support for centralized forms sharing

    We would like to place our forms on a shared network drive for quick access for printing, and so we do not need to distribute forms to individual machines each time we make a small change to a form.

    Since we have many divisions using Aeon, we have many versions of PrintCallslip.doc, for example (and other forms). Since each has the same file name, we need to create sub-directories for each division's forms. So we need symbolic links to be supported to enable this access.

  6. Allow Aeon to send requests to ILLiad for reproduction fulfillment

    The University of Baltimore would like the reverse functionality of the current integration between Aeon and ILLiad. They would like to send Aeon reproduction requests to ILLiad. This is because Access Services staff use ILLiad to manage certain reproduction requests from Special Collections. They think it would be easier for Access Services staff to work in ILLiad on these requests instead of having AS staff work in Aeon. When the requests are fulfilled, ILLiad would update Aeon and make the reproductions available to the patron.

  7. Allow users to sort requests by scheduled date & submission status

    All saved and scheduled requests are currently listed in Outstanding Requests, and there isn't a way for users to easily sort out just the requests for their upcoming appointment. There also isn't a good way for them to view when they have an appointment coming up, short of going into each request (and they may have requests scheduled for different days). It would be good if the patron could see the dates they have requests scheduled and the requests scheduled on those dates, as well as be able to sort Submitted vs Saved requests.

  9. Appointment Display

    It would be great if calendar could show both morning and afternoon appointments. It is very confusing for researchers who are scheduling multiple appointments.

  10. Update default ItemCancellation email to use CancelNote instead of ReasonForCancellation

    CancelNote has more details than ReasonForCancellation and should be used by default.

  11. Create separate NewUserRegistration email templates for RemoteAuth and AeonAuth

    Information provided to different types of users may need to be different when confirming registration. Different email templates would allow sites to provide the necessary details to affiliate vs non-affiliate users. Should include a key to determine whether the same or different emails should be sent to patrons.

  12. ArchivesSpace - Aeon Fulfillment Plugin - restrictions checkbox

    The University of Baltimore would like for ASpace to indicate when the Restrictions Apply? checkbox is checked in the collection record in ArchivesSpace, as opposed to importing the Access Restrictions note, as the plugin currently does. This is because restrictions note isn't always used because it doesn't always apply; a clearer indication for them is if the checkbox is checked.

  13. Check Out Item/ Reshelve Item / On HOLD

    Would be more efficient to scan TN barcodes directly into Check Out Item/ Reshelve Item / On HOLD fields that can be located at the top of the Homepage without searching for the request first. Would be even more beneficial to not have to click on a Check Out Item/Reshelve Item/On Hold icon if we could just scan directly into a field and that is how the request would be automatically processed (without clicking on icons)

  14. Aeon - ArchivesSpace client addon - request for more field mapping options

    The University of Arkansas has requested the following mapping options for the ArchivesSpace client addon for Aeon: (1) Map "conditions governing use" note to the Aeon EADNumber field; (2) map location of top container information to the Aeon ItemSubLocation field; (3) for agents that are creators, pull the name from the Sort Name field instead of the Primary Name field (which often contains only the surname); (4) Ability to import the child and grandchild container type and indicator fields (this is not included with the ArchivalObjectInstance field in the addon); (5) Map component identifier to Aeon ItemCallNumber field; and (6)…

  18. communication job description

    As with IBM, HPE is also offering an extensive lineup. The ASE and the Master ASE are all packed with courses that are designed toward the management and design of storage on multiple sites, as well as remote replication and back-up. The certifications also include deduplication and converged infrastructure, so there is an excellent option for those who need to prove how much they know.

  19. Retain activity Completed status if other ActivityStatus options are removed from CustomDropDown

    By default, the Aeon ActivityStatus includes the options Created, In Progress, Fulfilled, and Completed. Only In Progress and Fulfilled can be changed/removed. However, if both are removed, the Completed option no longer appears. The Completed option should always be present, like Created.
