  1. Academic Departments - add field for Faculty/School

    Academic Departments within institutions often sit under Faculty or School groups. This is currently not represented in Alma or Leganto. Could we have a new (optional) field added for School/Faculty both to the Academic Department area and have it available in Analytics.

  2. Citation menu options should be available from citation view

    It would be helpful if there was more access to the citation menu options when viewing the citation in Leganto. Users should be able to Copy to my collection, Send to Library, Mark as Read, get LTI Direct Access, get a permalink and Set Complete.

    Where this is a real problem however is for instructors who are using the Unlink LTI option on a citation from the LMS. To unlink, they follow the link to the citation, then have to know to go to the section to find the citation and its menu.

    Ideally both unlink and relink should be…

  3. purchase request workflow made leaner

    When a purchase request created via Leganto, is 'approved and ordered', this generates a PO number, which although appears as a link, doesn't then let you edit the purchase order after clicking on that link. You have to instead copy and paste the PO number into the search box and go from there to edit it further.

    Please can you make this process leaner by allowing users to edit the PO through the link in the [popup message that appears, after approve and order is selected. Please see attached document for details of the workflow.

  4. Display tags on page showing multiple lists a citation appears on

    When you click on the "Demand in other lists, other courses" alert, the subsequent page (screenshot included) presents you with a table of all other lists where a citation appears. It would be really useful if this table displayed the tags associated with the citation on each list.

    We use tags to inform our purchasing quantities, so when currently reviewing lists, we are having to go in and view the citation on each individual list to check for tags.

  5. Display availability of citations when direct linking is enabled

    When direct linking is enabled, Leganto displays a "View Online" link for every citation regardless of whether or not it is actually available online. Availability is only calculated after the user clicks "View Online." If the item is not available, they are redirected to a blank screen with the message: "No full text available". This is an unnecessarily confusing and frustrating user experience and different from how direct linking works in Primo, where "View Online" only appears when full text is available. This enhancement would allow availability to be calculated when the reading list is loaded to avoid confusion and…

  6. Lock a section for editing

    We would like to be able to lock a section in a reading list.

    Some of our courses lasts two semesters, but they only use one reading list divided into sections for each semester. If a section could be locked we could be sure they only edit the section for the coming semester.

  7. Message at login to users with unsupported Internet Explorer versions

    Many websites, such as Facebook, Youtube and Gmail are no longer supporting old versions of Internet Explorer. Older versions of Internet Explorer(IE) have security problems which will never be fixed and using it will leave you vulnerable to all sorts of problems on the internet.

    Suggestion: Users receive a message saying that their browser does not meet the minimum requirements for accessing Leganto upon trying to log in with an unsupported browser. They may still be able to log in, but will not be able to view/use Leganto effectively. This has been done for other systems, see for example the…

  8. 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…

  9. Recalculate course reserves automatic status if a tag is added to citation

    The Course Reserves Automatic Statuses mapping table allows us to automatically assign the status of ‘Complete’ to physical citations (parameter key citation_physical). However, our digitisation workflow requires that a tag called ‘Digitisation request’ is added to the physical citation, in which case, the status of ‘Complete’ is no longer correct. When a specified tag is added to a citation (as configured by the library, e.g. 'Digitisation request') can the status be recalculated automatically and a different status (configured by the library, e.g. 'Digitisation requested') be assigned?

  10. Option to reset the usage statistics without doing a rollover

    We have not used the rollover function in Leganto. Our main concern is that permalinks made in the VLE to sections/citations would no longer work. We have no way of checking where permalinks are in use.

    The main thing that we would want to gain from performing a rollover each academic year is to reset the usage statistics which are on view to instructors back to zero, together with any student comments and likes. We are not particularly concerned to create new copies of a course as there is nothing to distinguish one year's module from the next in our…

  11. When adding citations to a list via search, prioritize latest edition and owned item first

    Sometimes instructors perform a citation search in Leganto and just add the first result that comes up in the search results; often this is actually a book review or other format that isn't logical for reserves. Additionally, most instructors are searching and expecting the latest edition to appear first in the list. Other faculty from certain departments want to choose a particular edition, and so need edition information prominently surfaced in the search result.

    This results in processing delays as staff must check with instructors to clarify what items they really intended to place on reserve.

    One possible solution may…

  12. Improved Citation Alert Management Functionality for UI

    It would streamline the workflow significantly if Citation Alert Notes which are represented by the green dot in the Reading List View could include what contents of the Note actually are. This would save the workflow 3 extra clicks into the citation to edit it, checking the Notes Tab and having to then back out again to the Reading List. There is also significant work in having to clear an Alert once seen and or action, where the staff member has to select the citation, scroll to the top of the list, choose the Actions Menu, and select the Remove…

  13. Enable reading list items to be added to a PO line.

    It would be helpful if items on order could be assigned to a reading list from the PO line by acquisitions staff and the reading list module information be a part of the PO line information.

  14. Searching for citations within a list from Leganto

    When searching within a Leganto list for a citation, all sections display even if they don't contain citations which match the search terms. This makes the results screen cluttered and difficult to scan, especially in lists that contain lots of sections. To identify whether any section contains a search result the user has to look for a section which contains a number other than 0. This is very unintuitive. We would expect after the search is conducted that only sections which contain search results would display and all other sections would be hidden.

  15. Create reading lists by importing csv or xls formatted file to Alma

    This will allow us to create lists in bulk and save considerable staff time spent creating lists manually and adding individual citations in Leganto or Alma.

  16. Add student level activity to Leganto reports

    Academics would like to track student usage of Leganto reading lists as an indicator for students who are at risk of under-performing or dropping out of courses.
    A way of identifying students who are not reading or participating on the Leganto list would be useful.

  17. Suppress tags from specified citation material types

  18. Choose which useful links teaching staff and students see

    We have just spotted that it’s possible to set up useful links in Leganto, these appear in the top right menu, see screen shot attached.

    We have created a user guide for teaching staff and would like to add this using this link, however we only want this to be visible to teaching staff and not to appear in student view. Similarly we would like to be able to give students specific links that appear only in student view.

  19. Make Leganto permalinks and front page available in different languages by including language parameter in the URL

    At present, there is no language parameter in the URL for Leganto permalinks or the Leganto front page, which means that even if we toggle the language from our default (English) to another language, and then copy a permalink, the permalink will default to English when opened.

    This is a problem for us as, in Wales, both English and Welsh are given equal status under Welsh Government language standards, and Welsh must not be treated less favourably than English. We need to provide links to Welsh language reading lists for courses taught through the medium of Welsh, which should not…

  20. Enable the user to focus on the relevant sections, based on the date

    If the list is built by week, by default all sections relevant to the past will be collapsed. Only the current week's section and future sections will be expanded, by default.
