  1. 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…

  2. Return people to page once logged in

    We have an open search page for Leganto and make our lists open as well. Because of this people will often find lists in different ways i.e. not just following the link from the VLE.

    If you find a list that is open and then log in, or if you are on the open search page and log in, you are always taken to the "My lists" screen.

    I propose that when you log in you are returned to the page you started on i.e. if you are on a list page and log in you are returned to the…

  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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".…

  12. 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.

  13. citation tag manage purchase request

    Can the 'Citation tags' facet/filter also be added to the 'Manage Purchase Requests' screen.

    To provide context, the citation tags we have created ourselves are 'Essential', 'Core', Further Reading', 'Distance Learning', 'Recommended' and so on. Our reading list team will want to complete all purchase requests, however, they may wish to process purchase requests marked essential, before moving onto the Core reading etc. Or have different team members working through different citation tags. Having this facet in 'Manage Purchase Requests' will allow the team to prioritise particular requests over others.

    Feels like a small feature to implement, but will have…

  14. 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.

  15. Cite It compatibility with JISC's Library Hub Discover (NBK)

    Library Hub Discover (replacement of COPAC) is not currently compatible with Cite It.

    Cite It only currently captures basic metadata from the site: citation type is always other, title is always Library Hub (rather than the title from the record) and no other details are picked up apart from the URL.

    It would be of great benefit to UK users if Library Hub Discover could be made compatible with Cite It.

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

    We would like to be able to configure an automatic status change for citations where a purchase request has been submitted, or a resource sharing request submitted. In these cases we would like the citation's status to change to "In Process"

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

    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

  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.
