Hi, Sara,

User stories have been filed and completed for several aspects of name records, including importing names in indirect order when possible.  The particular user story pertaining to order of name when imported is:  https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/65475942.

See also:

https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/65477970  (changing "Inverted" to "Indirect")

https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/64190548   (enforce uniqueness of agents/names)

https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/64190600  (minimizing the creation of duplicate agent records)

https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/64190840  (minimizing the creation of duplicate name variants)

https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/64190496 (designating authoritative form of agent name)

https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/64191000 (designating display form of agent name form)

https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/64190528  and https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/52156429  (relaxing requirement for authority, source, or rules for agent name form variants)

These additions will appear in the next public release of ArchivesSpace.  That release has been delayed for a week or two while we investigate and fix a few problems recently reported.

Let us know if you have questions about these stories, or any others to be included in the next release.  You can view all of them at https://www.pivotaltracker.com/s/projects/386247.

Using ASpace v1.0.7.1, I've noticed a couple of issues that are still happening with agent records.  Names continue to display in direct order even when the default is set to inverted (they also export in direct order in EAD files), and the primary part of name automatically populates the Contact Name field when data is migrated from AT.  Have user stories been filed for these issues?
