[Archivesspace_Users_Group] PUI & Digital Objects links

The PUI still has a way to go with integrating digital objects, but the gist is that right now to get the red Digital Record icon badge, you’ll need to use that URI as a File URI subrecord, rather than (or in addition to) the Digital Record identifier.  Here’s a bit more info:  https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/103209762/Public+Interface+Documentation+for+staff#PublicInterfaceDocumentation(forstaff)-DigitalObjectButtons/Thumbnails

But it would like something like this in the staff interface:

I hope that helps, even if it’s not an ideal solution 😊

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] PUI & Digital Objects links

I’d like to use the Digital Objects module primarily to facilitate users getting from our archival description / finding aids to digital collections that are managed and displayed elsewhere.

Here is the test record I created:

The identifier is a URI but the user would have to copy/paste to make any use of it. The link is active as an external document but that is buried in the Expand All section that many will never click on.

I have a vague memory of seeing other PUIs where the red Digital Record icon is an active link that brings the user out to the external digital collection – or am I crazy? Please tell me there is an easy way to make this more user-friendly?

Thanks for any insights!
