  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. API integration with Zapier

    https://zapier.com/apps

    It would allow integration with a lot of other cloud-based systems, such as Google docs, Trello, etc.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow users to clear all search boxes on dashboard from quick access toolbar

    Currently, each search box on the dashboard (users, requests, actviites) has to be reset/cleared individually or by clicking the reset option from the bottom half of the search button. It would be convenient to provide a "clear all" option from the quick access toolbar that would quickly reset all search boxes to blank.

  12. Allow library users sending e-mails to the Aeon Reference E-mail to include file attachments (.doc, .jpg, etc)

    Sometimes library users asking Special Collections reference staff a reference question by e-mail find it useful to attach a file to the e-mail; for example some photograph or a scan of a document which they refer to in their e-mail. Library staff using Aeon when answering that reference question may find it useful to see the attachment, but the Aeon Reference e-mail module is not currently able to support file attachments; they are stripped out and converted to unintelligible masses of characters.

  13. Add option to print individual callslip from Activity request grid

    When you open an activity, and then open the request grid, I really want to be able to select multiple requests from this grid, and print those call slips.

    And, I don't always necessarily want to print all call slips in an activity. Some might be offsite, others in the vault, others I just need to look at first in making decisions about a class...I don't always want to print them all.

  14. Allow creation of custom Activity emails or disable option in Customization Manager

    In the Customization Manager, it is possible to create User, Transaction, and Activity type emails. However, the Activity emails are not accessible from the client once created. The only Activity email is the template.

    These emails should either be made available from the Activity details or the option should be disabled.

  18. Remove default web validation requirement for ID for Registration

    In Aeon 5.0, the ID field is required for Registration in the Web Validation table in the customization manager. The ID field is not present on the NewUserRegistration.html or NewAuthRegistration.html pages, though. When someone creates a user account, they get a validation error that ID is missing. The rule should be removed so as not to cause confusion for new Aeon sites. Also, many sites do not collect ID information on the registration web page.

  19. Ability to send a funding code through the payment billing gateway

    Submitting on behalf of two Aeon libraries: One library uses Authorize.net. They need to designate a specific activity code so that the funds paid by the patron are directed to the correct department. The activity code could be entered by the staff person in an Aeon field - perhaps as a type of billing default - and then included with the information that is sent to the billing gateway vendor.

    The second library uses PayPal. The entire institution uses one account, and so something like the above scenario would help where the staff person could designate a specific funding code…

  20. Set the activity requests grid by default to match the 'requests from file' import template

    Submitting on behalf of an Aeon customer: They would like for the grid in the Requests tab of an Activity record to mirror the import spreadsheet template (https://support.atlas-sys.com/hc/en-us/articles/360013451754-Requests-From-File-Workflow). They need to reuse items for other activities (so this cuts out cloning an existing activity), and it would be easier to "import from file" for each activity when needed as opposed to cloning requests using the staff client, especially if new activities are associated with different users. If their export from the Aeon activity record is already organized as needed for the template, they can make any modifications after…
