  1. Editor button integration: show requirement to choose bibliography style

    When selecting a citation using the editor button, the Add button does not work until a bibliography style is selected from the drop-down menu. For the new user, this can be confusing. It needs a visual indicator of some kind, such as prompt text in the box or an error message. Ideally, there would be default as there is for the link text, and it would be "sticky" -- remembering the user's last selection.

  3. Make the template wizard accessible

    Make the template wizard in the new UI accessible at any point during the creation of the list, not just at the initial setup stage. This would mean that if the list creator removed everything from their list to start again, or wanted to have merged templates (ie a week by week and a bibliography) they wouldn't have to create every section individually from that point.

  4. Usability of Favorites especially in LTI view - Suggest from right panel

    Using the LTI view the left menu (Lists and Favorites) is invisible which confines the view to the context of the LMS site the user is in. I can see why we would want to do that. However, it has the effect of making it virtually impossible for educator or student to be able to use their favorites.

    Scenario: Educator adds a citation to their list in the LTI view, then decides it is so good they want to add it to their other lists. They copy it to their favorites.... then what! (They could just copy to other lists,…

  5. File Upload box on Quick Start - New UI

    Our instructors access from the LMS, and upon Quick Start, we only allow the options to Create from scratch or Upload a file (not to rollover). A large proportion of our instructors avail themselves of the Upload a file option.

    We think the Upload a file or "Ask your library to create your list" option is greatly minimized in the New UI as compared to Classic UI, and that it would be nice for this option to have a box with an icon and button the same way the the "Create" and "Create from Existing" options currently do. We think…

  6. Make the 'Mark as read' symbol more prominent

    We feel that students are not making best use of this feature, perhaps because it's not immediately clear that the small 'tick' icon carries this function. Could this be displayed more clearly, for example by displaying the 'Mark as read' text without having to hover over the icon.

  7. Librarians would like to be able to feature lists in Find Lists by "Pinning" lists (or courses)

    We have had an interesting suggestion from Library staff working with Departments on topical reading lists - they would like to be able to 'pin' such lists to the Find lists page to make them 'featured' in a similar way to which the default "Recommended" - Popular/New/Recently Updated' ones appear. Ideally a pinned list/s would be more prominent to users throughout the interface, but the Find lists as a landing page would make sense to promote a themed list for library services - being able to scheduled the pin would be even better, but the core concept of pinning something…

  8. Allow placeholder text in author field

    When instructors create a citation they have to enter the author manually. We want them to always enter the author as Surname, I.N. or at least Surname, Firstname - so students get used to the preferred citation format and for copyright reporting purposes - but there's nothing to remind them of this.

    We'd like placeholder text to display in the author field, which would be configurable via the Labels code table.

  9. For Question and Answers in Leganto - allow a "cancel but add" option

    Some instructors are trying to add multiple items very quickly and would like to be able to search and add items and then go back through and tag them.
    In the current Question and Answer workflow, there is either a 'you must provide one response' type message, or there is a cancel option, but the cancel prevents items from being added. It would be useful in some cases to allow as cancel, but add option.

  10. Ability to tailor the Alma citations view to support more workflows

    This may be multiple ideas to be split out, but the basic idea is the same. Currently in Alma Citations, even with the useful SOLR indexing improvements to allow facets, it can still be difficult to use the Citations list as a tasklist, because there is only exclusive faceting and no date restriction. Although Analytics allows creation modification dates to come into use for filtering lists, in the Alma interface there is no easy way to only show certain dates.

    It is also a heavy loading page as it can show all citations in Alma, whereas it would be useful…

  11. Improve Courses search in Alma - Add an 'is empty' operator in the advanced search option for Course Year

    The persistent search in Alma has a Courses option, and an advanced search can be constructed based on several course fields, including Course Year. As this field is not always filled in by LTI or manual course creation methods, it would be useful if the search operators on Course Year allowed staff to search for an empty field as well as the current single option of "Contains Keywords".

  12. In the Alma Reading list view of citations, allow Citation Last Modification Date to take operators such as 'before/after or between' etc

    It would make some checks on reading lists easier if it was possible to more effectively filter the citations displayed, not just by the facets, but by having additional operator options for the Citation Last Modification Date. Having not just a specific date but before/after and between dates would make this more powerful.

    It might be useful it it was possible be more intelligent here by offering a date since list sent for review, etc

  13. Add courses to User API

    We have a regular feed of user data from our student information system (SIS) into Alma. The SIS also holds course data, so we'd like to be able to simply include course enrolment data in the existing feed, rather than set up a separate process.

    As well as one process being better than two :-) it's a more practical fit to how the data is available. The current process for course enrolment in Leganto requires us to run one job for added courses and one job for deleted courses. But our SIS can't create a list of courses that have…

  14. Hide the thumbnail URL in the citation view

    In Leganto if the thumbnail URL is populated the whole URL (which could be long, unwieldy, and of no interest to the user) is displayed.

    Just use it to show the thumbnail, but don't show the URL itself.

  15. Allow instructors to view reading lists for courses in My Lists without being collaborator/owner of list

    It should be possible in My Lists for instructors to view all courses where they are listed as an instructor and any lists associated with those courses, without being a collaborator or manually adding the courses to My Lists. Perhaps via a sub-section within My Lists e.g. My Courses, to designate those where they are a reading list owner and those where they are not.

    This would be of use if the functionality to auto-add instructors as collaborators to lists was not enabled, to allow instructors to be able to see which courses they are associated to. It could also…

    It would be good to know when you are suppressing an item that is on a reading list so you know either not to suppress it or replace it with another copy if one is lost or missing. Similar to when you withdraw or delete an item

  17. Add a simpler method of updating the number of participants on courses (in bulk)

    Although the API and Course loader options exist, the mandatory requirement to have a course ID and Course Name using the full CL template and the unwieldiness of the course loader profile SFTP etc for non technical staff suggests that it would be beneficial to add a simpler method for staff to manually update course participant numbers in bulk (i.e. a simple upload of 2 columns Course ID and Number of participants). Appreciate campus functionality, but for situations where no enrolment loader is possible, but regular updates are possible it would save much manual entry to just be able to…

  18. Allow configuration of list-level "Import" options for creating a list

    Currently (Feb 2023) it is not possible to configure - and specifically to disable - the list-level "Import" option when creating new lists - i.e. whether via MyLists/New List, OR when instructors enter Leganto via LTI from the CMS/LMS/VLE (say BlackBoard) and are prompted to create a list. Currently there is no way to hide this option or control the types supported. This is inconsistent as it is possible to hide the option from the Section menu for example.

  19. Enable independent hiding of different viewers from Alma D

    Re: case 06749385

    If an institution has multiple viewers configured for Alma D files, then in Leganto both will appear in the Links/availability area. However, if the educator decides that one of the viewers is better suited for their pedagogical requirements (e.g. Universal viewer has specific features for images/3d objects) and tries to hide the Alma Viewer, then both are hidden.

    I feel like this is a bug, as both links have separate "hide" links, but hiding one hides both - they are not isolated. Yet, the Mark as Broken links do work independently.

    I was asked to submit to…
