Hi, Emma,

The answer is Yes, general application of default values is in scope:  see https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/68478036.  However, this work has not yet been prioritized.

I wonder if the development team could confirm if the customisation of field labels and default text are in scope for development.

Many thanks

Hi Brad (and All)

As part of our ArchivesSpace testing we have looked at options for customising the interface.  With Archivists' Toolkit we are able to customise field labels and the on-screen pop-up help text, and set default text to pre-populate selected fields.  These customisations helped to make the Toolkit more user-friendly, as well as streamlining data entry and improving processing workflows.

Are these options currently available in ArchivesSpace, or on the plan for development in the near future?

Many thanks
