Marking Users as Away

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

This article reflects some changes/features that are not yet publicly available. Aeon 6.0 is in the final stages of testing. Once an official release date has been announced, this message will be updated with more information.

Staff users can mark signed-in researchers as Away to indicate that the patron is temporarily away. This allows staff to keep better track of researchers without having to sign them in and out of the reading room for smaller breaks. In the Aeon Desktop Client, users can be marked as away from the Signed In Users group on the Home page or from the Request and Appointment forms. In the Aeon Web Client, users can be marked as away from the Signed In Users and Appointments sections of the Dashboard.
