  1. 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)?

  2. Creating section for citation without delete and recreate via API

    Currently, it is not possible to create sectioninfo information if citation is already exists. It must be delete the original citation and create new citation with updated sectioninfo.

    It is better to allow update of section_info directly without delete and recreate the same citation.

  3. List creators to be better distinguished with different colours sections in reading list

    List creators would like to be able to better distinguish different reading list sections by having the option to assign them a specific colour. This would be especially useful for long lists administered by a number of different academics. For example: an academic could say to his/her students, "my readings are in the orange section". It would improve the list navigation experience for students.

  4. Searching or refining a search with publication year

    The citation search in Leganto has been significantly improved with the material type facets.
    But it could be made even more efficient and userfriendly with the possibility to search or filter by publication year.
    Some publications such as reports have the same title and the time of publication is a good way to differentiate between them and/or easier to remember than a DOI.

  5. Leganto Reading List Filters

    In Leganto, under My Lists, I see that there are a couple of filters to filter out the reading lists that we'd like to see (see file: LegantoFilters(CourseCodeAndCourseName)), I noticed only these variables are being pulled from Alma's Course Information, Course Code and Course Name. But what about when the librarian/faculty would like to see only reading lists from a certain Term or a certain Course Start Date & Course End Date? There should be a way to do this in Leganto without having to delete or disassociate courses from the reading lists?

  6. Use Analytics to surface information on user activity in My Collection

    We would like to use Analytics to see user activity in My Collection, for example how many times a title has been added to My Collection (but not necessarily added to a reading list).

  7. Option to hide panels

    Would it be possible for the top and left panels to be visible as default, with the option for the user to hide them using the tabs (rather than making them hidden as default)?

  8. Instructor view mode

    It would be useful to be able to view a list from the perspective of an instructor, rather than as library staff or as a student.

    For example, we have different levels of tag visibility and would like to test how these appear for instructors.

  9. Make volume information more visible in citation in Leganto

    For citations with a volume number, "Vol." is added when the list is exported to Word with APA or another style.

    This happens accordingly to citation style rules, but also greatly helps identifying what kind of information the number refers to.

    In Leganto, volume numbers are displayed without this pre-text, and stand on their own. Having "vol." added also in the citation in Leganto (without messing with the export) would make such citations easier to read and more userfriendly.

  10. Reject input if DOI or citation source URL is incorrectly formatted (Leganto instructor UI)

    We have seen many instructors create citations manually (rather than using Cite It) with the DOI formatted as a full URL (e.g. "https://doi.org/10.1111/misp.12056&quot; rather than just "10.1111/misp.12056"). This prevents the citation from resolving and linking to the resource as expected.

    Similarly, some users will add the citation source URL without the "https://&quot; prefix, or with other formatting issues which prevent it from linking as expected.

    A simple fix for this issue would be for Leganto to detect incorrectly formatted DOIs or URLs and to reject input, displaying a tooltip to inform the user of the correct…

  12. 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 sets in…

  13. Define specific subject within the URL

    We would like to build a page providing a list of Leganto reading lists for public access. The lists could include specific subject.

    Currently, its not possible to define specific subject within the URL of find lists.

    Suggested to create the public access link which only retrieve specific subject.

  14. Number of participants as a possible field in reading list overview

    In the reading list overview in Alma it is possible to choose the kind of information shown in the table, like code, assignee, status and so on. It would be nice having the numbers of participants as an option as well.

  15. Button to toggle list editor/manager status for all collaborators at once

    In almost all cases, we want collaborators to be able to manage their lists rather than just edit them. This means having to individually change the setting for each collaborator after adding them.

    It would be much quicker if there was a single button in the 'Manage collaborators' window to switch all other collaborators from 'Can edit list' to 'Can manage list', and vice versa. This button should only be visible to library staff and existing list managers.

  16. Share "My collection" with other as an extra feature

    To share "My collection" would be a good thing for instructors/librarians who work in the same field of education. It's in some way like sharing your EndNote library.
    "My collection" will contain citations that are not necessarily published in a course list, but still could be of use for others. This regards citations shared from one researcher to another but not necessarily in a reading list and/or citations processed by the library.

  17. My list filter by reading list

    New filter by is only on course code. This needs to be reading list name (not code as most instructors will not know what the codes are).
    There seems to be no reason how you have sorted the filter by course section. This should be changed to alphabetical etc. And done the same for reading list filter.
    There is an issue when scrolling down the filtered list, as this doesn't adjust to different size pages.

  18. Ability to Re-Associate Reading List with new Course after copyright records and completed citations are present in the List

    It would be very useful to be allowed to re-associate and incorrectly associated reading list with the correct course in Alma after work has begun processing the citations inside the Reading List.

    When an Academic associates their Legato Reading list to a Course, in some cases this is done incorrectly and assigned to the wrong course, which needs correcting. It is currently not possible to simply re-associate a Reading List to a new Course if work on that reading list has started, and there are completed Citations with Copyright Records.

    The only workaround at present is to change a value…

  20. Find List Search needs to have a specific Reading List Search Bar

    Currently the Find List search in Leganto is searching for Course Titles and Course codes and instructors. Rather than searching at the Reading List level. As we keep most of our information at Reading List level, It would be helpful if this was renamed Find Course and Make another Search to Find Reading Lists information. Which could search Reading List title, Reading List code, and Reading List Instructors.
