How can we improve Leganto?

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 deleted portfolio we have when the import is finished. It's however time consuming.

It would be much better to get a notification when the deleted title was previously included in a leganto reading list, so that the librarian can replace the related entry with an alternative copy.

The issue is esp. relevant to electronic titles, however it may also occur with physical titles that are withdrawn, an implementation of such a warning for both electronic and physical titles would be the best solution.
