    Hi Alison,

    I wondered if you had been able to consider setting the Recall on for physical items at institution level, but just not apply a recall period?
    I suppose the just in time/just in case side of real-time notification (loan status change) for the 'special copies' (recalled loans) is perhaps not what you want.
    Wondering whether this is like:
    https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/18775993-preventing-change-of-due-date-recall-when-placin
    or whether any aspect of the apparently planned Idea:

    https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/18005560-fulfillment-physical-item-recall-option-to-recal

    could also help?

    Agree would be good if the request queue block could take effect on renewals, rather than recall seemingly underpinning everything - though [recallled] loan status has its own block preference too.

    Is it possible to have an update on any plans from Ex Libris in this area ( i.e. roadmap plans etc) as it is a long-standing area of interest and something where the absence of functionality as regards holds control and letters which has perhaps prevented more customers from taking it up in daily use.
    Thanks!

    Further to Ben's comment see the labels tale in the Leganto tab in Configuration all of which have two elements
    i) "list.publish.X"
    ii) "list.publish.tooltip.X"
    where X is the flavour of publication visibility/access control

    This is a good idea and would really help to make the tasks widget much more usable, rather than just showing grouped generalities "Processing" being the most unhelpful, but the Tasks widget also shows the total of old work completed under "unassigned - Complete" which is really not an actionable "task" at all - just a statement of the total unassigned lists sat in the system ever (no active course relation etc).

    Agree, and this issue becomes worse over time where institutions need to retain old courses and the same individual may have increasingly confusing multiples to choose from.

    This is an increasingly important feature to push for as students have more lists over a longer period of multiple semesters/academic years. Without other year/term filtering or control within My Lists, the basic lack of an option to remove things added seems unfair on students who should be able to drop what they do not want, especially if they were just browsing. In addition, there is a complication here nbetween lists and courses in that My lists shows lists for a course, but the add feature is very much list level, whereas the LTI method is very much Course-level whether for 1 or many courses.
    It would be usefu to understand the relationship between LTI My lists and the new Course Enrolment as documented here:
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Leganto/Product_Documentation/Leganto_Online_Help_(English)/Leganto_Administration_Guide/Configuring_Leganto_Integration_Profiles/Configuring_Importing_Course_Enrollment_Jobs

    This loader implies students can be removed from courses, but does this really mean that all lists for those courses are removed from the students "My lists" every time - if this is doable here why not in the LTI?

    PS it is also frustrating for library staff overtime if they get caught with Instructor role and then test links and get lists added to their My Lists.

    Hi,
    We would also strongly welcome an update on what work Ex Libris have or are planning on doing with Version 1.0 of the ONIX Publications License
    format (ONIX-PL) field mappings to Alma licence field as nothing seems to have happened for quite some time - after the import feature was added in Oct 2014 as described:
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Training/03_What's_New_Videos_2014/03_October_2014_Release/Load_ONIX-PL_Formatted_Licenses

    See also the Alma-ONIX-PL field equivalent mappings:
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/010Alma_Online_Help_(English)/020Acquisitions/090Acquisitions_Infrastructure/050Managing_Licenses_and_Amendments

    It is still not possible to pull in the ONIX-PL terms from a Jisc licence for examples, but other examples can be given.

    I would suggest that this idea contains some of the same content/use case access as a newer submission:
    https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/17209124-being-able-as-an-instructor-to-see-all-reading-lis

    - that idea is aimed at giving Instructors/collaborator '360' view of lists for courses, - and in some respects is aided by the Leganto Course Operator role, but the need for course level discovery is not really met fully yet.

    In addition, the Course Reserves role in the front-end may ease some of this access, bu the point about seeing courses as access points rather than individual lists is still an issue

    Chris Jones commented  · 

    As an extension of this, it is important for any user for list discovery outside of the VLE/CMS to be able to potentially say 'Show me all lists associated with this course'.
    The Public Find lists functionality permits this to some extent from the May release, but the search does not return lists of courses, just lists of lists, and if there are multiple lists for a course it would be better to be able to do a structured search, or 'browse' all (published) available lists for a course, and indeed therefore all courses which have lists by academic department. Lists discovery from the Find list page (signed in or not) is important in its own right.
