[Archivesspace_Users_Group] User Defined Fields and Money

Hi Mike (& others),

I've definitely been interested in the code Yale has produced.  However,
I've been somewhat cautious to implement anything "custom."  At the SAA
discussion, it sounded like the Yale code was under review for formal
inclusion in the near future.  I was hoping to just utilize the user
defined fields as a temporary solution until it made it into an official

Has anybody else out there (besides Yale, of course) experimented with the
add-on?  What did you think?

Many thanks!

I?m not the right person to answer your questions re: the differences
between the various User Defined Fields, but since you are looking for a
solution to recording funding information in accession records, I thought I
would point you to a plugin that we at Yale have developed with Hudson
Molonglo.  It?s called our ?Payments Module?.  With it you will be able to
create payment subrecords in accession records.  Our financial recording
needs are probably more complicated than yours, but you will certainly be
able to record how much was paid and who you paid it to.  See
https://github.com/hudmol/payments_module if you want to give it a spin.
