Hello Paul,

I don't have a solution for you unfortunately. Just wanted to chime in and say this would be my number 1 dream feature for ArchivesSpace! It is really hard to navigate the SUI hierarchy tree without seeing the unique ID. I imagine there are other folks who would like to be able to customize what fields are visible in the hierarchy tree. If you open a ticket, let me know and I will add to it.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] PUI & SUI custom tree display?

Hi all,

We're looking at the feasibility of using the ArchivesSpace PUI. This also relates to an issue we have with our legacy data in the SUI.

We have a lot of collections arranged by component unique identifier, and where this information is not within the AO's title. I'd like to be able to put this information in the PUI & SUI trees.

E.g. this collection has materials organized by component unique identifier, but the identifier does not display in the tree, making it confusing:

[cid:image001.png at 01D9E239.3DC84A90]
But I'd like to be able to display it like this:

[cid:image002.png at 01D9E239.3DC84A90]

And the same in the SUI, with custom unique identifier showing up as an extra column before title.

Currently we have our own custom PUI that sets a custom order for these. We have to rely on this custom PUI to be able to navigate ArchivesSpace's SUI tree. Naturally a long-term solution may be to put this information in the title.

We also have lots of collections partially arranged by agent and where agent is not in the title, for which it is again confusing to not be able to view the agent in the tree. This is more difficult to manage overall as whether we'd want agent to show up first would be collection-dependent, and there are larger issues with this approach overall. However it would be good if agent could also appear somewhere in the trees.

Does anyone know of any customizations that people have done similarly?
