[Archivesspace_Users_Group] exporting bioghist attached to agent with EAD

Speaking of the Biographical/Historical Note (I've already voted for ANW-297), does anyone know if there is a method or existing ticket for getting a Biographical/Historical Note that is attached to an Agent record (as the creator), and is associated with a particular Resource, to export with a Resource record's EAD? We keep our bioghist notes attached to our Agents, which is okay for displaying in the PUI but does not get carried along with EAD or PDF exports. I'm not sure about OAI-PMH as we don't yet have it configured on 2.4.1.

Right now our workaround is to export EAD and then copy/paste in the bioghist. Fortunately this doesn't come up all that much!

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] seeking community input for JIRA tickets

Good afternoon, all!
The Development Prioritization subteam is seeking community input/discussion on the following JIRA tickets:
As a user, I want to directly edit / modify my user account and password
We are seeking information on which fields should not be editable by the user.  See additional comments in the ticket.

As a repository manager, I want to be able to bulk delete Events using a checkbox on the Browse Events page.
Since Events can be automatically generated as a sort of verification measure, we are interested in hearing whether they should be delete-able.

Move Biographical / Historical Note from Additional Description Collapsed Menu
Currently, the Collection Overview view of the PUI has only DACS required notes in the main view.  You have to click on "Additional Description" or "Expand All" in order to access Biog-Hist.  One question is whether the "Additional Description" should be replaced by just having "see all/see less" for all elements, or just move the biog-hist only out or make its own accordion, or possibly enable users with repository manager levels of permission to set a customizable order of finding aid elements (this last option would require a new ticket).

Thoughts?  Please feel free to share your thoughts by commenting and voting on the tickets and/or this member list!
Chair, Dev. Pri.
