Dear User,

Here is a list of the latest changes we implemented in Aviary during Sprint 22. These will be available on the site as of March 11, 2019.

New Features

                • Highlighted search results in an index/transcript are now clickable to start playback on the player from the closest previous timestamp.

                • Possibility to assign “Super view” permission type in permission groups, which will override any global permissions that an organization created for the Collection that owns the resource.


                • Search look and feel:

                  • Changed location and design of main search button on the Aviary homepage.

                  • Changed button colors of “Duration” and “Date” filters to match similar buttons in the system.

                  • Changed design of “Add search term” functionality and associated field selection dropdown.

                • Improved mobile display of search filters and results.

                • Implementation of “Resume” option for synchronization on ArchivesSpace integration.

                • Reduced white space between metadata labels and values in the Description tab of a resource.

                • Ability to delete “Pending Invites” from the list of user invitations in the organization backend.

                • Ability to include custom fields in bulk imports.

                • Changed color of timestamps in transcripts and indexes.


                • Fixed issue when importing OHMS XML file as an index when file contains only one index point.

                • Fixed issue with dropdown custom fields not displaying options in UI.

                • Fixed issue with Header Background Image hiding button.

                • Fixed problem with Collection level metadata not displaying properly in UI.

                • Fixed issue in group permissions where editing IP labels would change other labels in the table.
