    • Change reading list jobs to work on sets of reading list IDs instead of reading list Codes

      Currently the reading list jobs in Alma/Leganto rely on users creating a set of reading lists. Unfortunately the creation of the set is based only on the reading list code, which:

      - makes it inconsistent with all other set creation activities which support IDs
      - adds unnecessary complication when loading the file of data to create the set, in that you then have to worry about handling special characters and unique codes.

      It would basically be the same as requiring users to upload a set of titles to create a title/physical item set.

      We've had to create several reading list…

      • Ability to add a paragraph or line breaks in Welcome to Leganto message labels

        We have a requirement for our interfaces to be bilingual, especially the initial welcome message for a service.

        In Leganto we have the ability to add text for a second language into the initial English Welcome message which is good, but we are not able to add a break between English and the second language.

        I hope this is easy to do! Thank you.

        • 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.

          • Choose when to empty your bag

            When users add to citations to their bag to reorganise before pasting back into a reading list. They can only do this task once. It would better if they could do this multiple times, so they can add a set of citations to different reading lists or different sections in one list.

            • Retain citation status (Being Prepared / Complete) when copying or duplicating a list

              When using the duplicate list or copy section functions, citations which have previously been marked as Complete will revert to Being Prepared. This creates unnecessary additional work for our staff who have to mark the citations as complete again.

              • 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…

                • Add a 'Select all' option to My Collection to allow bulk export/deletion of selected items?

                  In the "My Collection" list of items, it would be useful if there was a bulk "Select All" option - as well as the individual checkboxes - to allow easier use of the (otherwise greyed out) "Export" and "Delete selected items" options

                    Would it be possible to apply different bibliographic styles within the Leganto list view, as well as being able to apply these when exporting to Word format.

                    • Avoid 'Multiple Resources Located' on resource locate for related records

                      If we have both print and ebook versions of a title then there will be two separate bibliographic records, both of which should have the alternate format ISBN added to the 020 $$z field (so that a relationship is formed).

                      Because both records have the same ISBN, the citation will display as 'Multiple Resources Located' if added via Cite It. This requires a member of library staff to manually intervene and select one of the records to Resource Locate. This is an unnecessary additional step, as availability for both related records should be shown in Leganto anyway.

                      Could Resource Locate…

                      • Display related title electronic / physical availability in Alma citation search

                        We rely on related records to enable all availability options to display where different formats have separate bib records (as a citation can only be resource located to one record at a time). It would be useful if a 'Related' availability tab could appear in Alma alongside Physical, Electronic, Digital and Other.

                        • More visible separation between course lists and My lists

                          When clicking on a permalink to a specific course, the lists associated to this course appear first on the page, followed by one's own list.

                          A thin line separate the first lists from "My lists" but this line is almost invisible and confuses a lot of users.

                          This line/separation should be thicker/more visible.

                          • Configuration - Disable file upload in reading lists

                            Institutions should be left the choice to deal with - or not - copyright issues regarding uploaded materials.

                            The possibility to upload materials to reading lists in Leganto should be a configuration parameter, allowing libraries to switch it on or off.

                            Uploading files to "My Collection" is of course not problematic.

                            • Limit the approvals request list

                              It would greatly improve workflow to allow the staff processing the Approvals Request List to be able to limit the items in the list by the year, semester and request type (e.g. to weed out Patron Request types). This would let staff show just the items they are interested in, and eliminate all the noise of the old approvals.

                              Attached is an example of how we would like the Status filter to appear on the Approval Requests List.

                              • Reading List Status Changes based on Citations Statuses and Assignees

                                It would be great if the manual process of Changing a Reading List Status could be automated by Alma dependant on factors like Assignee being set to someone, rather than being for the Reading List. This could trigger the List Status to change from Waiting for Processing to Being Processed.

                                Another Reading List Status automation we would suggest is that when every Citation in a Reading List is marked Citation Status Complete, this could trigger the Reading List Status to be updated Complete.

                                Both of these Reading List Status changes are things that need to be performed manually at present…

                                    Briefly, we would like a way to organize reading lists on the Leganto list view beyond being able to search them, for example folders that can contain reading lists.

                                    Our Business School and Faculty of Medicine staff have told us they have too many courses to manage easily on list view, so have suggested this feature to help organise their lists better. They suggest that seeing only their current year courses on the Leganto home page list view, and their previous years lists in folders.

                                    User story: as a medicine course convener responsible for multiple reading lists, I would like…

                                      • Add a "Refresh" option in the Edit Reading List page in Alma so that changes in the Leganto front-end can be cross-checked more efficiently

                                        When working with Leganto front end, there is "refresh" option at the top of the reading list which makes it easy to update things when editing to make sure the latest detail are visible, particularly seeing changes made in Alma reflected in the leganto list.

                                        However, for Library staff there is no easy way of "refreshing" the Alma view to reflect any changes made in Leganto. This leads to users
                                        i) refreshing the browser ("F5") in the Alma view, which takes you out of the list
                                        ii) Going in and out of the Edit Reading list view to update it …

                                        • Allow Find lists to enable course-level discovery (and departmental browsing) of lists

                                          The current Find lists (February 2018) page is focused on individual List discovery. It does not support overall course-level discovery very well at all (especially for courses with multiple lists).

                                          A 'structured search' can be done, choosing an academic department but no search term (really this is "browsing"). It returns individual lists of reading lists rather than a list of courses for which contain relevant lists.

                                          Course level discovery would meet student expectations of how they see their courses/modules from the course or programme level, and allow student to see other module reading much more simply by seeing all courses…
