[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Processing notes

Hi Christie,

At the University of Denver we use it in both Resource and Archival Object records as a note to other archivists indicating processing or cataloging tasks that were left unfinished for one reason or another, or other administrative things that we don’t want published in the PUI. The idea is that if the actions listed in the Repository Processing Note get taken, we remove the text that’s there.

We have a report that pulls the information from that field for review that we run periodically when setting processing priorities: https://github.com/duspeccoll/archivesspace_reports/tree/master/resources/resource_processing_notes_report

Can anyone on this list speak to what was intended to go in the "Repository Processing Note" text field for Resources, which the tooltip tells me does not appear in any exports or reports?

Can anyone give me a use case for why they populate this field in addition to (or instead of?) an unpublished "Processing Information" note?
