  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?

  2. 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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

    When reviewing a PO line in view mode, an Edit option is now available. The visibility of the edit button depends on PO line status, PO line assignment. Additionally, the user must have a Purchasing Manager or Purchasing Operator role.
    The list of PO line statuses that allow editing are:
    In Review
    Deferred
    Waiting for renewal (Manual or Auto)
    Waiting for Packaging (Manual or auto)
    Ready
    Sent
    Waiting For Invoice

    For more information please see Alma August Release Notes:

  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. 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?

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Disable or hide the integration with Facebook

    Institutions should be left the choice to hide or disable the integration with Facebook.

    Some institutions have for example a policy where they don't allow users to change their profile pictures, so the "Connect to facebook" feature is not welcome.

  10. 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".

  11. Allow reports on reading lists without citations in Leganto analytics

    We often produce reading lists (RL) for courses that only have syllabus selected by the student. These lists don't include any citations, but often have information essential to the students. Our problem is that we can't find a way to retrieve these RLs in analytics, together with RLs that include citations.

    Gal Darom said in May 2019 (in the ListServ...), when I asked for help to find all RLs associated to courses:
    The relation (data schema) between Courses -> Lists is done through the citations measure, and looks like that “Course -> Citations ->Lists”
    The outcome of this relation explain…

  12. Add the citation ID to the citation display in Alma

    You can currently search for citations in Alma by ID, but this number does not display on either the 'Edit Citations' (search) or Edit Reading List Citation screens. It is therefore impossible to know the citation ID number unless you obtain it via an Analytics report or by copying it from the end of the citation URL in Leganto. By having the citation ID immediately available in Alma we could greatly improve cross working between Leganto and Alma.

    This idea has also been raised as an Alma NERS request (5709).

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Support presentation of reading lists in an iFrame within VLE / LMS

    Ex Libris currently do not recommend integrating Leganto reading lists within a VLE / LMS using an iframe, as there is an issue with cookies.

    Users receive an "Illegal Institution" message on certain browsers (eg. Safari on macOS) with the cookie policy as in browser default.

    We would like to ask for this issue to be re-investigated by Ex Libris and an alternative proposed for roadmap development that fixes the issue without inelegant workarounds such as manually altering browser cookie policies or using a different web browser - noting that these workarounds are not always possible for users depending on…

  18. 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…

  19. Adding metadata to the pop-up window, when asked to confirm deletion of a reference in a reading list

    We've had feed-back from one of our instructors that it would be useful to have some metadata (title, author etc.) in the window that opens, when confirming that you like to delete a reference in a reading list. This is in order to be sure you delete the correct reference.
    Would that be possible?

    Thank you.

  20. 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…
