[Archivesspace_Users_Group] AO codes and titles: Need for feed

I believe the Container Template would also fulfill this need and is downloadable from within the interface. However, it will depend what version JHU is currently on; this was introduced in one of the last major releases.

Navigate to any resource > Export menu > Download Container Template spreadsheet. This is not the intended purpose of this spreadsheet, but a happy feature of it.

NYU's Work Order plugin, downloadable from Github, produces a text file convertible to CSV that includes AO ref IDs along with associated titles. If that is what you're looking for, I can highly recommend it. The New School bulk editor plugin produces these fields, as well, with a variety of other selectable fields.

Search results in the staff interface can be downloaded as CSV. Has the
archivist tried changing the fields in the "Search Columns" section of
their User Preferences? If they have, and it doesn't offer them the
fields they require, it is possible to write a plug-in which adds fields
as new options in the drop-downs in User Preferences. I haven't seen it
documented anywhere, but probably the best standalone example is here:
