  1. Manage Digital Representations

    When looking at a citation, we would like to be able to see if "Manage Digital Representations" has been ticked by looking at the citation information without having to click through to "Manage Digital Representations" to check. Could a filter be added to filter what hasn't been checked on a reading list or some indication on the citation information section?

  2. Update tags via API

    Currently, the Tags API is limited to retrieving tags. We would like the ability to be able to update and/or remove tags in bulk via a script using the API.

  3. Sections

    We prefer the option to add sections or move citations to different sections within Alma. The assigned section is shown for each citation in the overview of the Readinglist (see attachment ‘Section Alma’) but it only possible to change a section by drag&drop in Leganto. This is less convenient for librarians when we create or change a list on behalf of an instructor (and work from Alma). For lists that have a lot of sections and citations, the moving of citations in Leganto is also not the most user-friendly way (and the most secure way – a citation is easily…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Make it easier to edit templates within Leganto

    Once a template has been created it is not possible to update or edit it without saving it as a new template. It also means that other lists using the original template aren't updated and have to be updated manually. We would like the option to edit templates more easily and for any changes to be saved to all reading lists using that template.

  7. Notification function for Library Staff

    To add the notification function for Library Staff to notify the Library Staff by email if the citations have the following changes:


    • A tag was added to an item

    • A tag was removed from an item

    • A comment was added to a citation

    • A submit lists by date was added to your course

    • New library discussion in citation

    • The due date was updated in an item

    • A new item was added to a list

    • Item status marked as complete

    • Item status marked as declined

    • You have joined a reading list as a collaborator

    • Reading list was deleted

    • List was rolled…

  8. Identifying citations added via student suggestions

    We would like to be able to identify which citations have been added to lists by instructors from suggestions made by students.

  9. Add a Leganto-specific email address after "Reply to" in notification letters

    Some institutions use a Leganto-specific email address, which they would like to add at the end of the Leganto notifications letters, where it says "Reply to" (see attachment).

    The address listed after that (Contact us) is a general email address for the library/institution.

    Not all of them may need to use different addresses but it would be nice to have the option.

    Could you consider making the necessary changes, and add a <leganto_email> element in the XML as well (XML to letter admin)?

  10. Option to change the default tab on the Reading Lists Tasks List page in Alma

    We'd like either a global option to set the default tab to All or an option for each user to select their own preference. This would improve the workflow for staff because they often collaborate on Reading Lists and searching from the All tab is preferable to searching from the other tabs.

  11. Automatically close "Edit menu" after clicking "Set complete"

    When clicking "Set complete" while editing a resource in brief view, the edit menu does not automatically close itself as it does with most other options. This generates an extra click in order to get to the next item on the list. Could the edit menu be automatically closes when clicking "Set complete"?

  12. Display series information in citation details

    It would be useful if book series information (from the title record 440 and/or 490 fields) could be surfaced in citation metadata details. This is important information which should be displayed for the benefit of our users.

  13. Sort citations in Alma by date of alert generated

    Citations in Alma can currently be sorted by date created, date modified, citation title and reading list name.

    It would be useful if we could sort them by the date an alert has been generated (e.g. date when a user has marked a broken link). We could then prioritise the alerts more effectively as they are actioned.

  14. Add "Chapter Number", "Chapter Author" and "Chapter Title" columns to citation search page on Alma

    The citation metadata fields 'Chapter Number', 'Chapter Author', 'Chapter Title' cannot be viewed as columns on the citation search page in Alma (although they are visible if you edit the citation details). These fields contain key information which support our regular workflows, and it would be useful to have them visible at this level.

  15. Getting Started Reading List

    When a new user accesses the reading list system maybe they should be greeted with an example reading list which includes citations from Leganto YouTube playlist showing the features and how to use the system. Possibly create a student version and another for the reading list designer to show. Librarians could edit the Getting Started List to include their own citations and sections as well

  16. Leganto: Have a Reference displayed for the resource in the style required eg APA7th

    There was a comment from an academic saying when their readings were in the Learning Management System they had the correct APA referencing style demonstrated, with the link to the reading – so students could see the correct format. And the academic was disappointed that the Leganto list didn’t demonstrate the referencing in the correct style. So we would propose that under the title of the resource in the Leganto list, the reference for the resource would be listed in APA6 (or probably APA7 now) format. Ideally it would be like Endnote – where we input the data in the…

  17. Display module name / code / year alongside list title in Copy Section > Copy Into List dropdown menu

    This dropdown menu currently only displays lists by title. This is not useful in cases where the list has a generic title, e.g. 'Reading List', or if the same list has been rolled-over from previous years (there is no way to distinguish which list is for which year).

    It would be very useful if the module name, code and year could be displayed alongside the list title here.

  19. Leganto +ReadingList widget

    In adding the +ReadingList widget to the bookmark manager of a browser, you need a two-step process. First click the widget from one's Leganto settings menu and click again on the widget button from the pop-up window. This is more of a user experience issue, many if unfamiliar will choose to drag the widget after clicking on the menu settings and will drag the URL instead of clicking another time to wait for the pop-out window to drag the right widget with the javascript (see below).

  20. Alerts

    We would prefer a shorter way to view citation notes within Alma, either by clicking on a note within the overview (see attachment ‘Citation note’) or by display of details (‘the note’) within the overview. Now we have to go to Edit > Notes to see the requests/remarks that are essential for our services to instructors.
