  1. Instructor view mode

    It would be useful to be able to view a list from the perspective of an instructor, rather than as library staff or as a student.

    For example, we have different levels of tag visibility and would like to test how these appear for instructors.

  2. Add a Leganto-specific email address after "Reply to" in notification letters

    Some institutions use a Leganto-specific email address, which they would like to add at the end of the Leganto notifications letters, where it says "Reply to" (see attachment).

    The address listed after that (Contact us) is a general email address for the library/institution.

    Not all of them may need to use different addresses but it would be nice to have the option.

    Could you consider making the necessary changes, and add a <leganto_email> element in the XML as well (XML to letter admin)?

  3. Improve Citations search (Alma workflows) e.g. include Journal title (and chapter title?)

    Hi,

    Staff find that the Citations search functionality in Alma/Course Reserves is not as effective as it could be for finding updates as the indexes which can be chosen do not cover sufficient citation metadata fields to allow for the most common searches to be supported.

    Currently the search options are:
    Citation ID
    Course Code
    Course Name
    Creator
    ISBN
    ISSN
    MMS ID
    Reading List Name
    Title

    However it is frequently the case when looking to update/correct citations that a Journal title would need to be searched, and unfortunately Title does not cover this aspect of the citation metadata when the…

  4. Improve the Notification Type table in Alma

    The Notification type table can be displayed in different languages in Alma. However, after translating it, we realized it was not possible to upload a file with all the translations. We had to add each label manually.

    Another issue we encountered is that we were not able to distribute the table from our "Alma Network" instance to all the institutions in the consortium, which we do for examples with the label tables.

    Both these issue make it impossible for us to implement the translations for each institution as it would require too much work.

  5. popular reading lists

    We currently have old lists showing on our popular reading list section. We would like to be able to remove these from the list. Either by changing the configuration of how the list is created or being able to pick which lists are in the popular list.

  7. B2B Branding

    With a B2C organisation, the focal point is on promoting one sort of product that certain customers may want. A criminal workplace, for instance, will simplest be selling offerings in the prison market. All in their clients are looking for felony assistance.

  8. Allow placeholder text in author field

    When instructors create a citation they have to enter the author manually. We want them to always enter the author as Surname, I.N. or at least Surname, Firstname - so students get used to the preferred citation format and for copyright reporting purposes - but there's nothing to remind them of this.

    We'd like placeholder text to display in the author field, which would be configurable via the Labels code table.

  9. For Question and Answers in Leganto - allow a "cancel but add" option

    Some instructors are trying to add multiple items very quickly and would like to be able to search and add items and then go back through and tag them.
    In the current Question and Answer workflow, there is either a 'you must provide one response' type message, or there is a cancel option, but the cancel prevents items from being added. It would be useful in some cases to allow as cancel, but add option.

  10. Ability to tailor the Alma citations view to support more workflows

    This may be multiple ideas to be split out, but the basic idea is the same. Currently in Alma Citation, even with the useful SOLR indexing improvements to allow facets, it can still be difficult to use the Citations list as a tasklist because there is only exclusive faceting and no date restriction. Although Aanlytics allows creation modification dates to come into use for filtering lists, in the Alma interface there is no easy was to only show certain dates.

    It is also a heavy loading page as it can show all citations in Alma, it would be useful to…

  11. Could it be possible to allow a SpringShare Libapps widgets to appear in Leganto front-end (e.g LibChat)

    This ideas is to explore how far it might be possible to allow integration with a common Library CRM tool - whether it might be possible to integrate Libchat into Leganto. LibChat is the live chat bit of LibAnswers application from SpringShare's LibApps suite. and widgets can be added to webpages, and required a script element in the page HEAD or bottom, and then a div id added where the chat widget was called in the page.
    Allowing such an integration for a common tool (which would be possible in a Primo customisation) would potentially allow more flexible support options.…

  12. Improve Courses search in Alma - Add an 'is empty' operator in the advanced search option for Course Year

    The persistent search in Alma has a Courses option, and an advanced search can be constructed based on several course fields, including Course Year. As this field is not always filled in by LTI or manual course creation methods, it would be useful if the search operators on Course Year allowed staff to search for an empty field as well as the current single option of "Contains Keywords".

  13. When copying a section from one list to another provide a 'search for' option to find the list you want to move to.

    At present it gives a randomly ordered list of all lists on 'My Lists' so hard to find the one you want if as a librarian you manage a lot of lists.

  15. Add a "Set complete" option for Library staff to the Edit Multiple items options

    In November 2020 the Edit Multiple Items option was added to the Leganto interface. One option which would really help Library staff when processing and checking lists would be to add the "Set Complete" option (only visible to Library staff) to the bulk options (delete, add notes, visibility dates etc.)

  18. Allow items added by Cite It to also be added to My Collection

    Our instructors and students have suggested this enhancement. Currently they can only add items to a list or My Collection with Cite It, there's no option to add to both.

  19. Make the 'Mark as read' symbol more prominent

    We feel that students are not making best use of this feature, perhaps because it's not immediately clear that the small 'tick' icon carries this function. Could this be displayed more clearly, for example by displaying the 'Mark as read' text without having to hover over the icon.
