I have had the following question from an AtoM user:

When generating the finding aid (right side menu option) the result, when downloaded, is deposited in /temp - possible to default to "download directory" instead?

is there a way to change where these are generated?

Hi Dan, 

The finding aid, once generated or uploaded, is stored in the Downloads directory - the temp directory is just used while processing. When a user clicks the "Download" option later, AtoM should open a new tab and display the finding aid, and the path should point to the Downloads directory. You can test this out on our public demo site - see this description with a finding aid, for example:
