Improve functionality of Courses API
We use the Courses API to load units from our Learning Management System into Alma/Leganto. We would also like to use it to roll over reading lists, however, it is missing key functionality that we require for our workflows.
Because of this we have to manually roll over lists. During peak times this is a weekly job and takes up an undue amount of staff time.
The 2 main improvements we would like to see are:
-Addition of Write functionality for Tags: We rollover citation tags and this is not supported by the API.
-Citation Copyright: When trying to create reading lists via the API, the copyright statement is copied, with a resulting status of 'Approved', but it is not re-calculated in the same way as it would be if rolled over in Alma. E.g. the copyright status should be (using our configured rules)Approved Automatically / Extract percent less than 10 – Auto approval

The need for a create/remove API for tags has been around for some time (see this idea from 2019: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/37450213-update-tags-via-api).
We'd also very much like to see this developed.
