Currently in AtoM, donor records have a notes field, though there is no way to import this information. This minor enhancement will add a donorNotes column to the Accessions CSV template, so that users can import notes about donors.

This new field should support pipe separators for when there are multiple donors being added via a single accession CSV row. However, the donor notes field itself is not repeatable, and will not be changed - so users cannot import multiple notes per single donor.

#3 Updated by Steve Breker over 2 years ago

In addition to the new donorNotes field, the import task has been changed such that if a new accession material type term or acquisition type term is encountered in the import CSV, the task will now create the new term and log a message instead of throwing an exception and stopping the import.

I have also updated the log message that is created when a duplicate
accession identifier is found to include the accession identifier.
