Release Notes May 2016

New

  • You now have an infographic on your own eLearning portal that lets you view at a glance how your training activities (and/or business) are doing. This can be downloaded as a png image, learn more here.
  • You can now restore the last 20 deleted users and courses. Read this guide for instructions on how to do this.
  • We’ve added a new 5-star ranking system that lets learners rate courses they have completed.  See this guide on how to enable course rating.

Improvements

  • Custom course fields are now displayed on the course summary page and can be seen by the learner.
  • When importing courses to groups or branches an option has been added to add it directly to group or branch with these functions: “coursetogroups” & “coursetobranches”.
  • When the course summary page is enabled and someone gets a course from external catalog this will take them directly to the course instead of the course dashboard.
  • Additional events can be tracked in the timeline report like unit update, course reset for a user, when a course is failed, when a user is updated or deactivated by the admin.
  • Gamification levels enhancements have been made: when courses have been assigned to users by the admin and not acquired through the course catalog, the next level of courses can only be accessed when the criteria has been met.
  • Mass actions have been split into ajax triggered batches – with an interface to show progress, an admin can pause and re-start this process at any point.
  • Retina-ready course image is now shown throughout the portal.
  • Better support for multiple choice questions, including a differentiation between multiple-choice questions with one or multiple correct answers and improved visual design.
