[Archivesspace_Users_Group] User Defined Fields and Money

To clarify, some of the development work we did with HM is in the process of being vetted for inclusion in the core application.  Additionally we developed several plugins, one of which is the Payments Module.  There is no plan to incorporate that into the core application.

As the functionality provided by the Payments Module is crucial to our work, we accepted the need to make sure that migrates forward as necessary.  If that isn’t something you can manage in your shop (or in collaboration with us or others), then the User Defined Fields would be a safer solution.

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 release.
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.
