  1. Trigger Owner Subscription Letter on rollover and on active auto_set_instructors_as_owners

    We would like the Owner Subscription Letter to activate when instructors are automatically set as owners to corresponding reading lists. We would like this to happen on rollover as well.

    The Leganto Notification Letter is to imprecise to function well as information for the instructors when they have been added as owners to a reading list.

    We can't see why the OWS only triggers when you are added as an owner when in Leganto, or when added in Alma and you actively choose "Send E-mail".

    Now we need to retrieve the contact information from Course Reserves in Analytics. Since these…

  2. Custom Analytics 'Reports' within Leganto interface for instructors

    Currently the 'Reports' link (attached) in Leganto just links to an 'out the box' analytics dashboard displaying a range of usage information.

    It would be useful to be able to define a path to our own Analytics dashboard in an Alma code table, e.g. in Fulfilment > Leganto > Customer Settings.

    Our analytics report would be set to receive filters/parameters from Leganto, i.e. reading list codes.

    Academic engagement forms a significant part of the work we do with reading lists, so being able to be flexible and responsive to their needs/wishes in terms of usage of their lists would definitely…

  3. Notify when a title (esp. electronic portfolio) chosen in a Leganto reading list is deleted in Alma

    This idea was originally posted as Alma idea ( https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/36648628-notify-when-a-title-esp-electronic-portfolio-ch ) but it is probably more a Leganto improvement. Therefore I post it here.

    Especially when dealing with electronic titles, for example when importing them, Alma may delete some portfolios.
    However, researchers may have previously selected these portfolios for their Leganto reading list. But nobody would notice that, until the students find a broken link in Leganto.

    To avoid that right now we perform a manual check, relying on an Analysis looking for Electronic Titles selected for reading lists before running the import, and comparing that with the list of…

  4. Display physical / electronic availability for citations in Analytics (Course Reserves and Instructor Usage subject areas)

    Physical (print) and electronic (ebook) availability cannot be added as columns in these Analytics subject areas. This would be hugely beneficial for most of our daily reports and workflows as we try to ensure that a certain number of copies or electronic versions are available for resources added to reading lists.

    An additional requirement is for availability to be shown for records related to the citation. This is because we have separate title records for physical (print) holdings and electronic (ebook) portfolios, and use the related_records parameter in Leganto Customer Settings to display availability for all available formats at citation…

  5. Develop an update process between the Parent record (ALMA) and the added appointment in Leganto

    It is important that they develop an update process between the Parent record and the added appointment in Leganto, that is, whenever there is an update or change in the records (MARC, holdins, items) of Alma that are referenced in the lists of reading Leganto. Currently these changes are not automatically updated in the reading lists . Por example we make changes at the classification level, in metadata and reading lists in Leganto are altered and we must re-reference or load the lists. It would be a excelllent if this process were automatic.
    Thank you

  6. Allow custom/specific delivery skin to be used in Leganto

    We've noticed that the alma delivery skin in Leganto does not match the Primo delivery skin, and so customizations to the delivery skin in order to get things working in Primo are not available. There is no option to customize the default OTB leganto delivery skin.
    Example use case for this would be where for personal delivery purposes the hold shelf for a library has to be available, but cannot be disabled from displaying except via CSS hiding in the delivery skin CSS.
    The suggestion would be to allow the specification of a specific delivery skin to be used within…

  7. Enable Process and Enrich Citations to run as a scheduled job

    This job needs to be run on a regular basis to ensure that all citations are linked to repository records, but this must currently be done manually by a member of library staff. It would be very useful if the job could be scheduled to run automatically.

  8. Allow to disable welcome/help/instructor highlights

    For instructor login, they will see the Welcome messages for the first time. The same message can be accessed via the Help menu. There is also a "Instructor highlights" which links to the release note.

    *ONE*
    We tried to customize the welcome/help message. But it is very rigid that it must have 4 pages, and on the "Help" page, "Workflow" tab, it is hardcoded to have a fixed number of bullets, and some bullets must have more than one paragraph. Actually we don't want to show some information to the instructor and it is very strange there are some blank…

  9. Additional automatic citation status configuration for purchase and resource charing requests

  10. Extend shelf recommendations to include ebooks

    In the July 2018 release notes a new feature was described for showing shelf other titles located on the same or adjacent shelves near the citation.
    In Primo we have the virtual browse configured to include ebooks that have an LC classification in the bib record. We think the shelf recommendations in Leganto should be extended to accommodate ebooks in a similar way. Especially as more of our budget is going to online books.

    I logged a case asking for it, and Ex Libris has indicated that it sounds beneficial for other other customers, and requested that we garner support…

  11. Show all user IDs where more than one user reports broken citation link

    The Edit Citations area in Alma only shows the user ID of the most recent user to mark a citation link as broken. If more than one user has marked the same link as broken then this is shown by a number, but you cannot see the previous user IDs.

    This is hugely problematic for our team as we try to follow up with all users by email, either to let them know that a broken link has been fixed or to ask for more information for troubleshooting purposes.

  13. Add courses to user's My List via API

    Our library has access to our students course enrollments. We'd like be able to update via API every student's Leganto My Lists so that their enrolled courses are automatically included within their 'My List'.

    We are able to offer personalized lists of of courses on our website but can't do so within Leganto because I have not found an API that updates a user's Leganto My List.

  14. Enable Leganto users to "Unlike" citations

    Once a Leganto user has liked a citation, they are not able to change their mind and "unlike" it.

    Across social media the pattern is that “likes” can be removed – and this is what our students/instructors would expect.

    • In training, or in class when demonstrating the feature, and then wanting to reverse it
    • Accidentally clicking the Like
    • Liking a citation, and then realising it was a different one that you wanted to like
    • Liking a citation and then changing your mind

    Consideration should be given to whether liking/unliking is locked once a list is "inactive".…

  15. Optional fields for more flexible export options

    There are various ways to export a list, but the general feedback we get from the consortium is that there is often something missing and/or some elements are irrelevant:
    Excel: tags are not included, and there are too many columns otherwise.
    Word: with Apa or Chicago, public notes are not included; with the expanded reading style, tags are included, but not in a way that can help sort the citations, and physical location is irrelevant.
    The pdf export contains some of this information but is not very print friendly.

    In other words, none of the export options covers entirely the…

  16. Add Citation ID as column to Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area in Analytics

    Reports created in the Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area are not useful unless citations displayed can be easily identified and located in Alma. The best way to achieve this would be to provide Citation ID as a column in this subject area.

    It would be useful if book series information (from the title record 440 and/or 490 fields) could be surfaced in citation metadata details. This is important information which should be displayed for the benefit of our users.

  20. Allow quick linking back to reading list from citations view

    From citations view, if we need to access the associated reading list in order to make any changes, we must follow a very complicated path to get back to said reading list. This path is very click-intensive.

    Preferred functionality would be for the Reading list entry in each citation (in Citations view) to be a hyperlink which resolves directly back to said reading list for quicker processing.
