  1. Ability to maintain our own subject lists

    The current subject categories are unusable, for example there are 3 categories for Horticulture, plant breeding and plant propagation but nothing for Business or IT. You have a category for Heraldry, which isn't that common but nothing for physiotherapy or midwifery. As for Seals is that to do with heraldry or the animals?
    We have had to turn them all off as a result. Can we have a function to maintain our own subject lists with the ability to add our own entries?

    • Allow uploaded files to be deleted in Leganto

      It's not possible for lecturers to delete files from citations once they have been uploaded - they must ask library staff to do this in Alma. Can it be made possible for files to be uploaded in Leganto?

      • Duplicating lists - navigate automatically to new list

        When a user duplicates a list we would expect Leganto to navigate automatically to the newly created (duplicated) list rather than the original list.

        This has caused confusion for some users, who do not realise that they need to navigate to 'My Lists' in order to find their duplicated list. This has resulted in lots of duplicate draft lists appearing in our system which are not required.

        • 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…

          • 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".

            • More facets on the Reading Lists Task List

              Thank you for changing some filters into facets, but in order to make better use of this functionality, we would like to add more facets.
              It would be a great improvement if we could have Academic Department, Course Terms and Assignee as facets as well.
              Then we could easily sort the list to match each liasion librarians need for easy overview to his/her's Reading List Task List.
              The facets we have today doesn't help very much in order to filter the list into a manageable task list.
              Maybe it could be possible to customize the facets in the same way…

              • Add a link to Leganto from individual Citations in the "Citations View" in Alma

                It would be useful if there was a 'View in Leganto' link from the Citations view in Alma - i.e. the "Edit Citations" list does not currently (Feb 2018) have a way of getting to the equivalent citation or list from Alma; it seems inconsistent with the Reading List Task List which does offer a "View in Leganto" option to navigate form Alma to Leganto.

                • 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

                  • 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…

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.…

                          • 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.

                            • 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".…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                        User Story: As an instructor, I would like to have the option to add a citation to My Collection or other reading lists from the Search Library results in current reading list or My Collection (similar to adding an item from cite it), so that I don’t have to go in and out of My Collection/reading list to add a citation

                                        • 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.
