  1. Option to hide 'Send List' button

    We do not make use of the 'Send List' button in our workflows (we process all lists at the point of creation, rather than waiting for them to be sent to the Library by the lecturer). Could we therefore have the option to hide the 'Send List' button?

    • Ability to retrieve deleted list sections or individual citations

      Ability to retrieve deleted list sections or deleted individual citations. When deleting individual list sections or individual citations from a list, could the deleted items be held in an area (e.g. "trash bin") so as to be retrievable if deleted in error. Could this functionality be available for both instructors and librarians.

      • Hide or customise the top and bottom sections of the quick start wizard.

        We want instructors to focus in the middle section to create lists. The top section is too broad, instructors have to scroll down to get to the main functionality. The bottom section is irrelevant especially the gif, we can't even change it

        • Suppress tags from specified citation material types

          We would like to be able to hide certain tags from specific material types, for example hide our 'Digitisation request' tag from citations which are already available electronically.

          • Additional Citation Alerts for purchase and resource sharing requests

            Citations with resource sharing and purchase requests submitted currently display alerts showing submission and approval or rejection. However the next steps in those two processes are not added. It would help library staff if the next steps were also shown as alerts, especially when they are backing up staff who are on leave. Email notifications about these items would have been sent to staff who are absent. Examples are:

            1. Resource Sharing request received
            2. Ordered item received
            3. Ordered electronic item activated

            • Display resource availability for electronic portfolios directly without having to click "View more notes" link

              Availability of Citation electronice resource (e.g. "Available from year|volume|issue...") is not displayed directly on Leganto Citation Details page. User has to click "View more notes" link to un-hide availability. This is inconsistent with the behavior in Primo (Primo displays availablility directly), and take extra clicks for users to find out the information. Please display resource availability directly without having to click "View more notes" link to find it out. Thanks.

              User Story:
              As a course instructor, I would like the electronic resource availability to be displayed directly on Citation Details page, so that I don't have to do extra clicks…

              • Make permalinks more available

                At the moment if a member of staff, or a student, wishes to get a permalink to list they need to be logged in. I propose that permalinks are made accessible from the "three dot" menu even when people are not logged in. This will make finding lists and sharing information about them much easier.

                • Edit Pane to remain on Screen when editing & saving an item.

                  When you edit an item in a reading list and click save the list advisor panel replaces the edit panel, it would be better for the edit panel to remain on screen after you've clicked on save as further edits may be needed to the same item?

                  • Option to use custom resource type icons

                    In Primo we have a custom set of resource type icons as the default images are too small and appear fuzzy. (path to the images is "custom/<institutional view>/img/"
                    In Leganto only the default icons are available, or each icon must be manually updated.
                    Manual updates for every citation is unmanageable, and would only result in inconsistent user experience.

                    We would like an option to specify that the same set from a Primo view be used, or as a fall-back somewhere specific to put the same set of icons for Leganto to use.

                    • Find List Search needs to have a specific Reading List Search Bar

                      Currently the Find List search in Leganto is searching for Course Titles and Course codes and instructors. Rather than searching at the Reading List level. As we keep most of our information at Reading List level, It would be helpful if this was renamed Find Course and Make another Search to Find Reading Lists information. Which could search Reading List title, Reading List code, and Reading List Instructors.

                      • 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.

                        • Leganto Viewer

                          Uploaded documents in Leganto can only be downloaded and cannot be viewed online. Students often consult Leganto from different devices. We think it would be agreat feature if ExLibris could implement the option to view files directly via a 'Leganto/(Alma)' viewer?
                          And in addition it would be great if it is possible to make notes within a document in Leganto (within the body text of a file) (cf. Mendeley)? (Via the viewer?)

                          • Alternative method for Stackmap integration

                            At present the only option for integrating StackMap into Leganto is to use an Integration profile of "Discovery Interface" type. This forces the integration to display in Primo as well as Leganto.

                            We are using custom javascript in Primo for a superior user experience of the maps, and do not want to compromise that by having the integration profile create additional sub-par map views.

                            Our preferred option would be for the same user experience in Leganto as Primo. A fallback option would be to have a separate integration profile of type "Leganto" independent of the "Discovery Interface" profile. This is…

                            • Allow visibility at a section level

                              Currently we are able to set visibility at a citation level, it would be good if we could set it at a section level. For eg, if my reading list is by week, i would create various sections as weeks with a number of citations under each section. Hence instead of editing the visibility at each citation level, we could edit the visibility at a section level.

                              • List creators to be better distinguished with different colours sections in reading list

                                List creators would like to be able to better distinguish different reading list sections by having the option to assign them a specific colour. This would be especially useful for long lists administered by a number of different academics. For example: an academic could say to his/her students, "my readings are in the orange section". It would improve the list navigation experience for students.

                                • 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.

                                  • Allow Cite It to work on a PDF open in browser

                                    Cite It cannot be used to import details for an online PDF which is open in your browser window. Such items must be added manually in Leganto.

                                    In Chrome, nothing happens when you click the bookmarklet from an open PDF. In Firefox, the CIte It popup window appears but is not populated with any citation details.

                                    A Salesforce case about this was previously escalated to Ex Libris Product Management, but they have advised that it should be pursued as an enhancement request.

                                    • publish needs to be become more visible and a dual process of 'send to library' and 'publish'

                                      Not only does the publishing button need to be made more visible. But needs to act as a dual process of 'send to library' so librarians get contacted when changes are made but also publishes the reading list. Or 'send to library' needs to be made mandatory again when tags are changed (i.e. from core to supplementary) as this will change how many copies the library may need to purchase.

This would save the workflow 3 extra clicks into the citation to edit it, checking the Notes Tab and having to then back out again to the Reading List. There is also significant work in having to clear an Alert once seen and or action, where the staff member has to select the citation, scroll to the top of the list, choose the Actions Menu, and select the Remove…
