  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. 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…

  3. Pop up to associate a duplicated with original course or updated course for a different academic year

    A newly duplicated reading list remains attached to the same course as the original from which the duplicated reading list was made. We would expect that when a list has been duplicated a prompt box is generated which gives the user the option to associate the reading list with the original course or re-associate it with an updated course for a different academic year.

    User story

    As an academic I would like to duplicate the current year's reading list which is attached to a course for 2016/17 and create a reading list for 2017/18. Within this list duplication process I…

  4. Update the citation field labels when resource types other than Book or Journals are selected

    Currently when a user selects citation types for video or audio etc, the field labels are not updated to match accordingly.

    Mapping of fields such as that used in reference managers like Endnote would help for better display to students, and help instructors to enter appropriate metadata. eg. For a video in the more details section the labels mention pages. "Total pages" could be relabelled as "Running Time".

  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. Improve the visibility of "Publish" list option

    We have noticed quite a number of Instructor created lists remain in Draft in error, as Instructors are not always aware when a list is 'draft' or 'published'. The option to 'publish' is hidden within the Resource List options menu. Instead, it would be useful if the 'publish' option appeared as a visible button and hence be easier to find and also possibly serve as a reminder to publish a list.

  7. publish needs to be become more visible and a dual process of 'send to library' and 'publish'

    Not only does the publishing button need to be made more visible. But needs to act as a dual process of 'send to library' so librarians get contacted when changes are made but also publishes the reading list. Or 'send to library' needs to be made mandatory again when tags are changed (i.e. from core to supplementary) as this will change how many copies the library may need to purchase.

  8. Get an alert in Task list when a file is uploaded

    Instructors uploading a file together with a citation should trigger an alert: the library may want to control and check which files are published, due to copyright issues.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Allow instructors to add/remove tags to citations in bulk

    This would save a considerable amount of staff time spent adding tags to citations individually, and would encourage instructors to make use of the tags we have provided.

  12. 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…

  13. 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".…

  14. Default item type for e journal articles

    When adding a Primo Central electronic journal article title to a readings list, the type defaults to article rather than electronic article.
    This would then be more obvious to instructors and students that they are looking at an electronic article instead of a physical article.

  15. Reuse list button on splash screen

    When users first enter Leganto via the LTI, before they have created a list for the current course, they see a splash screen with options to Create a new list from scratch or upload a list. A better option would be to replace the Upload button with a Reuse button, so that it is easy for users to get to the right place to find previous lists to reuse. Reusing a list from a previous semester is by far the largest use case for our faculty, and the splash screen makes it very difficult to see how to do that.…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  19. Auto Save tags when entering

    When adding tags you have to select the tag then click the Save button. If you hit Enter it adds the next tag in the list! Most users will hit enter thinking this will Save the tag. I'd like to eliminate the extra click on the Save button and have tags auto save.

  20. 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.
