  1. 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.

  2. Short cuts

    Both keyboard shortcuts (hot keys) to reduce mouse use, and ability to add often used pages/functions in a "favorites" linkbar for easy access. Reducing the amount of mouse clicks needed.

  3. Add course adds/drops to the user record history in Alma

    When you look at a user record in Alma, you can see the list of courses they are enrolled in. However, the user record's "history" tab doesn't include changes to their course enrollments. Having that history would be useful in troubleshooting access to course materials for individuals – you'd be able to see what they have been enrolled in, as well as when they might have lost access to a given course, for example.

  4. Could it be possible to allow a SpringShare Libapps widgets to appear in Leganto front-end (e.g LibChat)

    This ideas is to explore how far it might be possible to allow integration with a common Library CRM tool - whether it might be possible to integrate Libchat into Leganto. LibChat is the live chat bit of LibAnswers application from SpringShare's LibApps suite. and widgets can be added to webpages, and required a script element in the page HEAD or bottom, and then a div id added where the chat widget was called in the page.
    Allowing such an integration for a common tool (which would be possible in a Primo customisation) would potentially allow more flexible support options.…

  5. 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).

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Link to earlier book editions in the student view

    To be able to add a link to a reading list to all earlier editions of a book (which are suitable for students to use). The link would need to be visible in the student view and ideally display all the earlier edition books with links.

  13. 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?

  14. 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).

  15. 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

  16. Notes added in Alma to default to 'Library' type (rather than 'Instructor')

    Notes added in Alma are likely to be for internal use only for Library staff. It would therefore be useful for the note type to default to 'Library' rather than 'Instructor'.

  17. Add a new parent field to group academic/processing departments

    Please find attached high level design about the ability to create academic units which may group several academic and/or processing departments.
    Please review the document and let us know if you have any remark. We would like to get your feedback if processing department is relevant here.

    Many thanks,

  19. Display Instructor's name along with list title and code in search.

    This is a very simply display improvement. Students looking for lists from searchlists often want to find their list by instructor name. Sometimes they will browse by department, or try to find their course amongst other sections and there is no indication of who the list instructor is from the brief list record. Even if they search by that name, they may misspell it and still have to and have to click through to open the course to be assured they have the right list. Adding it with the code at the bottom of the display would be a useful…

  20. Real time integration for course updates between Blackboard and Alma/Leganto

    A real time integration between the VLE system Blackboard and Alma/Leganto would be beneficial to allow course information to be updated instantaneously within Alma/Leganto, without having to wait for the next course load to run.

    Although APIs are available for creating and updating courses, these require local set up and resource. It would be beneficial if standard integrations could be developed for course updates directly between the most commonly used systems e.g. Blackboard, meaning that when a change is made to a course in the VLE this is then automatically reflected in Alma and Leganto.

    This would also be useful…
