  1. Ability to configure name of library staff for display in Library Discussion

    When notes are posted in Library Discussion, the full name of the user displays. We would like to be able to configure how we display staff names (for example, first names only).

  2. Add a Session Timeout URL config in Legnato

    Add an option in Leganto configuration where we can specify a "Session Timeout URL" so it is not just dependent on Alma settings. This variable is available in Primo. Since this is a student facing interface, it would be good to be able to configure this feature.

  3. Show accurate total of books in stock

    The Alma side of Leganto uses the number of copies of a book in total but unlike Primo, does not ignore books marked as 'lost' or 'missing'. Would it be possible for Leganto to show the current total of books in stock (either available or on loan) without any missing/lost ones?

  5. Free text space above File Upload Copyright options in Leganto

    Currently, in the front end of Leganto, there is no free text space above the File Copyright Upload options. Please see attached screenshot.

    It would be good user experience if there is the option to add some free text there otherwise it's just a series of options without an explanation of what they are.

  6. Filters/sorting/duplicates

    Filters/sorting/duplicates

    It is possible to look for citations within Alma’s persistent searchbox, but we would prefer a sorting function (A-Z) or a searchbox within a list. This would help looking for a citation while staying in a readinglist. Furthermore, it would help to detect unintended duplicates which have been added from, for example, ‘My Collection’ AND Repository Search AND Zotero. Or is it possible to mark duplicated citations?

  7. Drag citations from list into My Collection

    Could functionality be added so that citations which appear in lists can be copied to My Collection by drag and drop (rather than via options > copy to collection).

    This seems logical, as you can do the reverse action to copy a citation from My Collection to a list via drag and drop.

  8. 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

  9. Conformation and Manual Linking for Resource Locate actions on Citations

    It would be great if, using the option to Resource Locate on a citation, there was an option to confirm/decline that the correct inventory was matched through the process before the link takes place.

    If we also had the option to manually search for the correct inventory when declining in the above step when the Resource Locate fails to link to the correct inventory, between both of these options we could ensure that the citation links to the inventory we intend.

    This would solve the problem which is faced now, that when Resource Locate is used and Alma determines and…

  10. Resource locate to default to "OR"

    It would be useful if "Locate Citation by Fields" could be configured so that only one enabled field needs to have an exact match, i.e. the resource locate defaults to "OR" rather than "AND" where more than one citation metadata field is populated.

    This would allow citations to be matched where a title is misspelled, but an ISBN is correct, or vice versa.

  11. Being able as an instructor to see all reading lists attached to a specific course

    As an instructor, it might be useful to search for a course (whether it is the instructor's courses or a collaborator's courses) to obtain the list of all related reading lists of that specific course. Right now, in the Instructor page, the search for course name will only list the reading list that the instructor has already created, or followed. Thanks

  12. 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).

  13. 'Add new title to section' button - float in long sections

    Some lists have long sections. It would be very helpful not to have to scroll up through long sections to get to the 'Add new title to section' button. Would it be possible to make this button 'float' so that it is visible wherever you are in a list section. This would improve the list navigation experience for instructors and creators.

  14. Add an 'Undo' button to Leganto UI

    Instructors would appreciate this, especially when they first start using the system.

  15. Remove an individual user from all courses/lists where they are an instructor/owner

    This is only currently possible as a bulk process using the reading list 'Remove all owners' job, or by using the course uploader. This is inefficient in cases where an individual member of staff leaves or is no longer teaching on a specified module and therefore needs to be manually removed as a list owner / course instructor.

  16. Allow tags to be added in Cite It

    Would it be possible to assign tags to citations directly from the Cite It window, rather than having to locate them in Leganto and tag afterwards?

  17. Customisable text box in Leganto UI to provide library contact details

    We would like the option for a library enquiry email address and phone number to be visible on all screens in the Leganto UI. A customisable text box could be added to the bottom left corner of the screen with this information.

  18. Copyright Clearance option when uploading a file

    when instructors upload a file in Leganto, (one) of the configured copyright statements is 'ticked' by default.

    (File Upload Copyright Options setup)

    Is there a way to oblige' instructors to agree on/tick one of the statements before they're able to upload the file? So, this is not ticked by default?

  19. Make tags clickable

    Tags look clickable in Leganto, even if they are not. It creates the expectation that something should happen. Some users might expect they will be taken to the full text of the citation, depending on the tag label.

    What we would like to happen when a user clicks on a tag is that they get an overview of all the citations with the same tag. It's a quicker and more intuitive way than the current way of filtering by tag.

  20. Export to Excel - Remove "Citation" from each column

    We want to suggest a slight modification of the export to Excel.

    As you can see on the attached screenshot, the title for each column is preceded by Referanse/Citation.
    Ex:
    Citation Volume | Citation Issue | Citation pages | Citation start page and so on.

    The document would be easier to read, and thus more user friendly without the extra "citation" text.
