[Archivesspace_Users_Group] DAO Notes in EAD

Hello everyone,

I'm having trouble with note tags in DAO records when downloading EAD finding aids. During our migration to ArchivesSpace a few years ago, the copyright notes in <daodesc> were mapped as "General Notes" in ArchivesSpace DAO records. However, I noticed that "General Notes" or any other note fields in the DAO record do not export as part of the EAD from ArchivesSpace.

I saw the following ticket but I believe this is about the PUI not the EAD export:

It is crucial that the "General Note" (or any other appropriate field you can recommend) show up in our EAD XML document-we do not use the PUI but instead download the EAD and map it directly onto our online finding aid on the museum website<http://www.guggenheim.org/library-archives/archives-collections>. We are using ArchivesSpace version 2.2.0 in Google Chrome browser.

Also, in the future, can I map DAO fields to export as <descriptivenote> in EAD3? Is this a setting we can tweak in the backend? I would really appreciate it if I can get any input or suggestions! Thank you!
