  1. Save a selection of Citation menu option as the default view

    When entering Citation view to process current course reserves, you must first always select from the List Assigned to menu "Assigned to me" and then apply various other filters to limit the view to what needs to be processed. It takes time to apply each filter each time the citations list is accessed; allowing some filters to be "sticky" or default according to processor preference would save time when processing citation requests.

    • Make a list complete automatically if all of the items on the list are complete

      When processing a reading list, library staff set each individual item as complete as they arrive for the reserve shelf and are ready to be used. Library staff must then take an additional step to mark the entire list as complete, even though each individual item has already been marked as complete.

      Currently functionality requires the reserves managers to find outstanding requests by reading list and not by outstanding citation when more than one person works on reserves. This results in a very time-intensive process for units who hold reserves on a large scale.

      Desired functionality is to have the…

      • Sort list should retain selected value

        Currently if you choose a "sort list" option in the Leganto front end (e.g., "list title") then click into a list and then click the "back" button, the sort list option defaults to "My lists on top".

        It would be preferable if the sort list value chosen by the user remains.

        • 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.

          • Analytics – allow student usage to be measured by any specified date range

            We would like to be able to specify any date range (e.g. 1-30/09/2018) for this Student Usage Subject Area. Currently in Alma/Leganto Analytics, student usage statistics can only be measured by week (starting on Mondays). The enhancement would give us more flexibility in reporting to senior management. This also helps us to align/merge student usage reports with reports from other subject areas (or other systems such as Moodle, Google Analytics), which are not restricted to weeks.

            Other scenarios where this enhancement would help:
            - Monthly/yearly reports
            - Reports to compare usage before/after functionality/configuration/workflow changes on a specific day

            • When adding citations to a list via search, prioritize latest edition and owned item first

              Sometimes instructors perform a citation search in Leganto and just add the first result that comes up in the search results; often this is actually a book review or other format that isn't logical for reserves. Additionally, most instructors are searching and expecting the latest edition to appear first in the list. Other faculty from certain departments want to choose a particular edition, and so need edition information prominently surfaced in the search result.

              This results in processing delays as staff must check with instructors to clarify what items they really intended to place on reserve.

              One possible solution may…

              • Add additional filtering options in Citations view

                When working in Citations view, we frequently have the need to know which citations belong to which processing department in order to batch process citations. Currently functionality does now allow us to view citations by processing department. Therefore we must instead go into each reading list in order to investigate which citations are not yet marked as compete. It would be much more efficient to be able to filter on and view a complete list of citations that need attention.

                We also use the term field to help differentiate courses. Neither the reading lists view nor the citations view allows…

                • Leganto Instructor Rollover - Allow citation "Additional Resource Information" to be copied to the rolled over list

                  As library staff, I would like the "Additional Resource Information" for Citations to be copied to the rolled over list, so that I can keep the additional sources for the citation (in addition to the source in the Resource Information area) I manually added to citations in the original list.

                  Current Behaviour:
                  1. Rollover the list
                  2. Find out which Citations have Additional Resource Information
                  3. Manually add the "Additional Resource Information" source information to the Citations in the rolled over list

                  Proposed Behaviour;
                  1. Rollover the list, Additional Resource Information is copied through to the new list

                    • 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?

                        • Ability to search for and delete Courses that do not have a Reading List attached

                          To ensure that the LTI link works between our LMS and Alma we have to create a Course Record for all units that utilise the LMS. This results in thousands of Course Records being created in Alma each semester. However since not all units in the LMS use a Reading List only a fraction of these Course Records eventually have a Reading List attached. Therefore we have a lot of empty Course Records in Alma cluttering up the Course area in Alma and resulting in some confusion for Library staff in identifying active, current courses.

                          This problem will only continue…

                          • Add events (citation modifications, etc) by library staff to Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area in Analytics

                            Currently the Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area only identifies events created by list collaborators. At our institution, library staff are also responsible for making modifications to lists and citations (for example, adding tags), however these actions are not displayed as 'events' on analyses created in this subject area.

                            As previously discussed with Ex Libris (see SF 00523008), it would be useful for our workflows if both instructor and library staff events could display in this subject area (perhaps under separate descriptors).

                                When adding a Primo Central electronic journal article title to a readings list, the type defaults to article rather than electronic article.
                                This would then be more obvious to instructors and students that they are looking at an electronic article instead of a physical article.

                                • Automatically checking if a newer edition exists

                                  When instructors create reading lists, they're often interested in the newest edition of a book, but may not be aware that a newer edition exist.
                                  If they're library doesn't have it or (when searching in a broader scope) if no one in the consortium has catalogued it yet, they won't find it.
                                  In any case, automatically checking if such an edition exist would be a nice feature.

                                    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?

                                    • Actualización automática de registros en Listas de Lectura Leganto

                                      Es importante que exista un proceso de actualización entre el registro Padre y la cita agregada en Leganto. Que toda vez que se realice alguna actualización y o cambio en los registros (MARC, holdings o ítems) de Alma que estén referenciados en listas de Lectura de Leganto, estos registros cambios puedan actualizarse automáticamente en las listas de lectura sin necesidad de que se realice manualmente. Actualmente realizamos cambios a nivel de clasificación, cambios en los metadatos y toda vez que los realizamos las listas de lectura se alteran y no son accesibles desde Leganto, por lo que se debe volver…

                                      • Autofill CCC special order forms

                                        When a reading cannot have copyright clearance immediately granted in Leganto, staff are notified to place a special order. Sometimes Leganto provides a direct link to a blank CCC form, but sometimes it doesn’t. In either case, the staff must enter all form information manually, even though that data has already been entered in Leganto.

                                        Leganto should connect directly to the CCC form in all cases where a special order is needed, and autofill the form with all relevant data that has already been entered in Leganto. E.g., ISBN/ISSN, year, volume, pages, number of students, article or chapter title, etc.

                                          We've recently gone live with Leganto and Ex Libris have advised we come here with this issue. Students cannot use the Permalinks function to link to individual lists/items, and we expect users are going to just copy or bookmark Leganto URLs from the browser bar instead, but those URLs don’t seem to work at all unless the user is already in toLeganto. If they're not already logged in, trying to access a Leganto URL just makes the browser try unsuccessfully to load the page, and the browser eventually times out and produces errors. This is apparently expected behavior due to…
