Adding Public Notes

Public notes can be added to individual items to provide instruction or more information visible to all list users.  

To add a public note to a new item on the list, navigate to your list in Leganto and select the blue “add items” button at the top of the list. Find the item you wish to add to your list and follow the normal instructions for adding the item to your list but select the white “Add and edit” button, rather than the blue “Add” button. On selecting this option, the item will be added to your list, but the item information on the right-hand side will expand to allow you to add more information as desired. Typing in the “public note” box will be visible to all list users. Remember to click the save button at the bottom of the item details when you have finished.  

If you forget to add a note when adding an item to your list, or need to add it retrospectively, navigate to your list in Leganto. Find the item you wish to add a note to and select the ellipses button on the right (…) in line with the item title. Select “edit item” from the drop-down menu that appears; this will open a detailed item information page on the right-hand side. Typing in the “public note” box will be visible to all list users. Remember to click the save button at the bottom of the item details when you have finished. 

Exporting lists

It is possible to export the lists contents in a variety of formats such as PDF or Word. 

Click on the 3 dot menu in the top right hand corner and select Export and the format of your choice. You will then be asked to confirm the bibliographic style you prefer and the format of any digital resource links. The file will then automatically download onto your device.

Allowing student discussions

When student discussions are enabled it allows the students to comment on the resource, feedback and support one another.
