Unsubscribe from similar emails (continued)

Continuing our attempt to provide a link "Unsubscribe from similar emails" at the footer of all email notifications, we’re now adding it to 4 new types of optional emails:

Clicking on the link "Unsubscribe from similar emails" will redirect you to the notifications settings page in the platform, with the corresponding deactivation option highlighted, and unchecked.

Owner, not coach

We’re removing a rule, where a change of platform owner would remove the new owner from the list of platform coaches, and add the former owner to the list of platform coaches.

While this may have made sense in the earlier stages of the platform, this automatic change is not needed anymore, so we’re removing it entirely. The new rule is therefore as follows.

When user A (current owner) yields platform ownership to user B:

  • User A is added as a platform admin (if they weren’t already).
  • User B gets the role of owner (which gives them de facto all platform admin permissions + some others).

Updated buttons in the search pop-up

We’re adding one button, and renaming another one in the search pop-up.

  • At the top right of the pop-up, a new buttonSEE ALL RESULTS, that you can click to open the full search results page.
  • On the bottom, we renamedDISCOVER intoDiscover more, to make it more explicit.

Withdraw → Unenroll

We’re rewording the term "withdraw" to "unenroll", to be more consistent with the corresponding action ("enroll").

This applies mostly to the situation when a user could cancel their participation to a path session in which they enrolled autonomously, from their Catalog.

Subsections for My work in the homepage

Core product

New role: user administrator

We’re introducing a new main role: the user administrator, who will be able to manage users in a group, without access to the content.

The user administrator will be able to perform the following actions:

  • Invite learners to their group (by email).
  • Set up learners in their group (by creating their accounts for them).
  • Add existing users as learners to their group.
  • Validate invitations sent by coaches.
  • Send invitation reminders.
  • Cancel pending invitations.
  • Share self-registration links/codes.

We plan to add a few more permissions in the following releases (such as removing users from the group, editing user profiles and manager/managee relationship).

They will not, however, be able to do the following:

  • Give or remove the author, coach or administrator role.
  • Access the dashboard.
  • Perform actions related to training content:
    • Create or edit courses/programs/paths.
    • Access training data or statistics.
    • Assign sessions to group or individual learners.
    • Add content to the Catalog or the Library.
    • Validate / correct open questions.

The user administrator role cascades down to subgroups, like an administrator.

Coaches and admins can also download path certificates in the same way as program certificates.

New interface for Fill in the blank questions

Continuing our global rehaul of questions interface, we are now tackling Fill the blank questions.

We also took the opportunity to allow entering multiple words in a blank. Also, an answer is considered correct even if it has extra spaces, or a different casing.


Impacted applications:

Improved Manager Dashboard

  • You can now choose between pre-defined date range, or a custom manual range (the default range is set to "last month").
  • We removed the dropdown menu, forcing you to choose between Enrolled and Due date. Instead, we added a section Sessions ending soon (corresponding to Due date); the remaining info corresponds to the Enrolled state.
  • We added a section Managee’s teams, where you can see team performance at each level of the manager hierarchy.

Learn more about tracking statistics of managees →

Also, we removed the following graphs from the old version of the manager dashboard:

Weekly report becomes Activity report

We reworded a notification option for clarity.

  • Before: Weekly Report: if you have completed at least one session in the last week or if a session ends in the coming week
  • Now: Activity report: if you were assigned to a session that ended last week, is currently open, or starts next week

We also slightly modified the contents of the email notification (removed the cover picture, removed the "log in" button, and changed the title of two blocks).

Clearer consequences for group deletion

When deleting a group, we now display the items that will be permanently deleted as a consequence of this deletion:

  • number of subgroups;
  • number of users who aren’t part of other groups (and will therefore lose all access to the platform);
  • number of posts, comments, reactions and likes created in the group;
  • number of projects and learning needs owned by the group.

We then require you to check an additional box before permanently deleting the group.

Anonymized user is anonymized in attendance sheet

Anonymized users are now also anonymized in the Classroom check-in page and attendance sheet.

Declaring more learning needs

We added a button to declare a learning need more easily, directly in the section Learning Needs of the homepage. Some users will see a button on the top right of the list; others may see a bigger button on the left of the existing learning needs (yes, we’re conducting an experiment 🤓).

Impacted applications:

Keep Projects warm

We removed Projects from free trial platforms. We realized this was confusing new users, who needed time to first absorb the basic features.

Impacted applications:

Navigation & design

  • The feedback inbox now keeps an access to the sidebar navigation and the top menu, like the homepage.
  • In your personal settings, the sections RESULTS, NOTIFICATIONS and SETTINGS are now are displayed in the same way as the other sections (instead of separate icons, on the top right of the page).
  • Notification settings (in the menu ...Personal settingsNOTIFICATIONS) are now toggles instead of checkboxes.
  • When toggling off Enable email notifications, we now ask for confirmation.
  • In the group or homepage newsfeeds, we updated the appearance of courses, paths, programs and learning needs. The same information is displayed, it’s just neater.
  • We moved the helper button ? on the bottom right of the main section, instead of the bottom right of the newsfeed.
  • Classroom slots are now more compact in the edition screen of a program session.
  • In a program session with a Classroom, we reworded the text "You must attend the previous course first" to "You must complete the previous block first" — it’s not always about courses.

Other updates

  • We’ve activated a small feature on the Knowledge Base search bar, replacing the title of sections with 🇺🇦 Нет войне / Stop the War in Ukraine 🇺🇦 (with a certain probability, and on IP addresses from certain countries only).

API updates

We are adding one new path route:

  • GET getPathSessions: return the list of all path sessions in the platform.

Solution: HCM Connect

Solution: Curated Programs

  • Thanks to Edflex’s updated API, we can now display the time spent in statistics. This feature is retroactive. Note, however, that:
    • Edflex will not be able to provide the time spent for all resources.
    • The retrieved time spent for videos is their theoretical time, not the time actually spent on the video. If the theoretical time is longer than the duration of the course, we will compute a new time spent for the video, as the difference between the first and last activity.

Solution: Globalization

Solution: Extended Enterprise

  • Users who self-register can now change the language of the registration form, at the top of the page. The selected language for the form will be kept for the user account’s platform language.

March 2nd, 2022 (v65)

Core product

New top menu

We’re introducing a revamped top menu in the homepage, which features:

  • the "create" button (instead of at the bottom right);
  • a unique notification icon (instead of several menus in the sidebar);
  • the search bar (instead of in the left sidebar).


Impacted applications:

New interface for True/False question


Impacted applications:

New interface for MCQ


Impacted applications:

New manager notification

Managers now receive a revamped notification email, highlighting:

  • the average team completion and participation on recent training items;
  • who's late;
  • which training item has a low completion rate;
  • direct links to their manager dashboard;
  • who's been doing great.

Stripe for everyone

Team clients who were still using Cheddar will finally be able to move to Stripe; we will contact you soon with a short process.

Reorganized user administration page

We visually reorganized the user administration page (which you can access by clicking on a user from the menu USERS of the group settings). The page now has three distinct sections:

  1. General information (with the role title now having a dedicated field).
  2. Custom Fields.
  3. Group permissions.

We also slightly updated the design for changing the name, email and password.

Impacted applications:

Project statistics

You can now view the number of ongoing projects in the stats page of a group. You can also access them by clicking on the stats icon on the top right of the projects page.

See Track Projects statistics (section View Projects statistics per group).

Impacted applications:

Rectangular paths

To be consistent with the overall design, we’ve replaced all square images of paths with rectangular images.

The recommended size for the path cover image is now 980x550 pixels.

Default filtering date for Classroom stats

The menu Dashboard > CLASSROOMS is now filtered by default on the current day, on the top right.

Impacted applications:

Programming is learning

We renamed the user profile menu PROGRAMS into LEARNING.

You can access your user profile by clicking ... > Personal settings on the top right of the homepage.

Navigation & design updates

  • We visually updated the look of internal notes (both in reading and creating).
  • We visually updated the look of highlighted comments (the one selected when you answer it from the Feedback Inbox or a notification).
  • We simplified the interface for selecting custom fields.
  • Classroom slots in program sessions get a visual update (before, after).
  • You can now access Classroom slot statistics directly from the program session edition interface. On the top right of the slot, click ... > Statistics.
  • We visually updated a couple of tooltips.
  • We visually updated lists of users.

Solution: Globalization

Solution: Curated Programs

Solution: Mobile Advanced

Session instructors can now use the mobile app to:

Core product

New interface for ordered questions

We redesigned the interface for ordered questions (both for authors and learners).


Impacted applications:

Time zone selector for Classroom slot dates

You can now change the time zone for Classroom slots, when editing their start and end date.


Groups for all administrators

Group hierarchy is now activated on all platforms. This means that:

  • any group can now have a subgroup;
  • group administrators can now create groups.

This also implies that visibility rules now have more edge cases. Read Create a group to know more.

Adaptive sidepan width in the homepage

We added a rule to adapt the width of the sidepan in the homepage, depending on the width of the screen:

  • If your screen width is below 1360px, the sidepan width is 432px.
  • If your screen width is between 1360px and 1440px, the sidepan width is 450px.
  • If your screen width is above 1440px, the sidepan width is 500px.

(Remember that you can still collapse it.)

Impacted applications:

Dashboard manager default filter: Enrollment date instead of Due date

The filter on the top right of Dashboard > MANAGEES now displays by default Enrollment date instead of Due date. We realized it was a more common usage.

Focused Learning Needs on the homepage

In the section Learning Needs on the homepage, we now display only Learning Needs that aren’t linked to a Project. They are the ones that really need it.

Impacted applications:

Labels ye be warned

We’re replacing labels with custom fields in 2022. We tried lightly nudging admins to use custom fields instead of labels to facilitate the switch, but it seems labels are still being created.

So, we’re nudging them a little more, by displaying a red banner:

  • at the top of the menu Settings > Keywords > Labels of the platform group;
  • at the top of the label creation popup;
  • at the top of the popup when assigning a label to a user;
  • at the top of the popup when filtering by label.

Impacted applications:

Cleaner course dashboard

We removed the reaction columns from the menu Dashboard > COURSES, and added instead a column for the number of activities.

We realized there was too much information on that screen. We’re trying to focus back on the important stuff.

Impacted applications:

Cleaner Catalog menu

We removed the following settings from the menu Settings > Catalog of the platform group:

  • Cover picture;
  • Presentation video;
  • Catalog Name;
  • Describe your business.

They were obsolete and displayed nowhere.

Impacted applications:

Free reviewers

Project squad members can now add any user from their groups as reviewers, even if they do not belong to the Project squad. Adding a reviewer to a course will not add them to the Project squad.

Reviewers who are not part of the Project squad do not have access to the Project anymore (they are not added as author to the Project group), and can only access the course from their email notification.

This change allows Project squad members to focus on selecting the most relevant reviewers for their courses, regardless of whether they belong to the squad or not, and without fear of consequences in adding them as authors to unintended groups

Impacted applications:

Training recommendations on the homepage

Getting your training to the right learners is easier than ever with our training recommendations. Using data from previous training activities, our platform recommends training to users right on their homepage.

To have recommendations displayed, a platform needs:

  • 50 or more courses that have been attempted at least once;
  • 50 or more users that have attempted at least one course;
  • Their catalog enabled.

Impacted applications:

Behavior fix: creating a course from the tooltip

In the tooltip to discover the authoring tool in Free Trial platforms, clicking CREATE COURSE now actually creates a course, instead of only closing the tooltip.

Impacted applications:

Solution: Extended Enterprise

Self-registered users can now select their language (previously: only English) in the registration form.

Reminder: you can enable the group self-registration feature now for free on your platform by contacting your Client Success Partner. Note, however, that it is a preview of the Extended Enterprise Solution that will go live in 2022. This feature will then become available only through the Extended Enterprise Solution and you will need to subscribe to keep it.


Impacted applications:

API updates

We are adding one new path route:

  • DEL cancelClassroomSlot: this will delete a Classroom slot (taking as input the id of the classroom slot that must be deleted).

January 19th, 2022 (v63)

Core product updates

Searching for groups from the navigation panel

Instead of having to scroll through the group list, users will be able to quickly search for their groups directly in the navigation panel.

  1. In the navigation panel, click Search group(magnifying glass icon)
  2. Start typing the group name

Impacted applications:

Improved visibility to group hierarchy via breadcrumbs

We added breadcrumb links to the top of group homepages for easier visibility to group hierarchy and quicker navigation between groups.

Impacted applications:

Collapsible right side-panel

For users who want to save a little bit more space on their platform and group homepages, the newsfeed panel will be collapsible.

Impacted applications:

Adding custom fields to new users

Admins can now add custom field values to new users that they are inviting to the platform by email.

Impacted applications:

Design update on the path editor page

We moved the path type (Linear or Non-linear) and estimated duration selectors to the Steps section.

Impacted applications:

New info on the path session stat updates

We’ve added a couple more stats to the path statistics page:

  • More group result info: In the Results by group section of the path session statistics page, users can now click on the group row to get a detailed list of group results per learner.
  • New path session Learner stats page: This page allows users to access more granular info (like course attempt data) for individual Learners directly from the path sessions dashboard.
    • Page location: Path Dashboard > go to a path’s Results and statistics page > click the path session > click the Learner row.

Other improvements to paths dashboard pages

  • User custom fields columns added to dashboard export: Columns for your user custom fields will now appear in the paths dashboard export.
  • Paths vs Program recommendation: We added a note to the paths dashboard that covers some of the cases that we recommend using a path instead of a program. We also wrote an article to help you choose between the two: Paths or programs?
    • Psst! We recommend using paths when sharing courses that don’t need a specific play mode and that don’t contain open questions.

Impacted applications:

Updated path session permissions for coaches

To simplify path ownership, coaches that are in a group that owns a path session but not the path itself will no longer be able to create new sessions of that path. Coaches that are in the group that owns the path will still be able to create new sessions for that path.

Filling classroom attendance

We added the Fill Attendance feature back to the attendance management page for all solutions.

Other core product updates

  • For easier access to a path homepage from the user statistics page, we added a view button (eye icon) to the Paths table.
  • After reviewing feedback, we’ve removed the user calendar from the Programs tab of the Personal Settings page.
  • We added detailed reaction stats to the Courses Collaborative Activity dashboard.
  • We updated the language in some of our notification emails.

Solution: Enterprise

Updated project creation dialog box

We updated the look and feel of the project creation dialog box:

  • Created separate pages for each step in the creation process.
  • Added a progress bar at the top of the dialog box that shows where you’re at in the creation process.
  • Clearly identified which users are authors on the Add members section.
  • Made it easy to edit project info from the Summary section.

Impacted applications:

Improved Project tasks

  • To more accurately reflect the project task, we updated the name of the Start review task to Choose reviewers.
  • If you launch a project using one of your custom templates, the project will no longer show the default project tasks.

Impacted applications:

Added Learning Need prompt to homepage

If no Learning Need exists, users will see a prompt to declare a new Learning Need on their homepage.

Impacted applications:

Solution: Live Training

Sending check-in links to learners

Session instructors can now quickly send the classroom check-in link to individual learners. Hover over the pending learner’s name on the attendance management page and click Send the check-in link(paper plane icon).

Impacted applications:

Integration updates

Syncing Custom Fields with HRIS user sync connectors

Building off the logic for our existing label sync, our HRIS user sync connectors now also sync User Custom Fields.

REMINDER: If you are currently using labels, we recommend that you begin using User Custom Fields. We designed this functionality to replace Labels and will begin phasing them out of the platform in 2022.

API updates

We are adding one new path routes:

  • GETgetPathSessionUsers returns a list of learners enrolled in a path session

Mobile updates

We updated the design of our reaction bar on Android and iOS apps.

Addendum (February 2nd)

During the v63 release, we did a partial rollout of our training recommendation feature. We then fully released the feature on January 28th.

Based on their previous training and the training of other users on the platform, some users saw tailor-made content recommendations right on their homepage.

January 5th, 2022 (v62)

Core product updates

Recent groups

If you belong to more than five groups, the five groups you’ve most recently accessed will be displayed at the top of the group list, in the homepage sidebar.

All groups remain displayed in alphabetical order below the most recent groups.

Mobile: no impact; the homepage sidebar isn’t displayed in the mobile application.

Smoother date picker

We slightly changed the behavior of the date picker for changing the end date of a program session: the confirmation message will appear only after the picker is closed (instead of every time an element is changed).

Mobile: no impact; there is no need to select a date in the mobile application.

Custom fields selector in the user creation form

The menu USERS > Add users > Set up a user of a group now allows admins to add custom field values to a new user.

Note that the custom field needs to exist beforehand. See Create custom fields.

Mobile: no impact; users cannot be created from the mobile application.

Custom fields in the user statistics export

The user statistics export now displays custom fields, on top of labels. See Track user statistics (section Download user statistics).

Mobile: no impact; exports cannot be downloaded in the mobile application.

Performance improvement: course loading time

We improved the loading time of a course when clicking from the homepage. This first part of performance improvement was mainly done through backend code optimization.

Mobile: no impact yet; we’re still checking this doesn’t break anything in the mobile experience.

Performance improvement: removal of average course score in program session pages

We removed the score that was displayed under each course in a program session page. This score was computed as the average score of participants that had played the session so far.

In some cases, the computation of this figure caused the page to load for more than 10 seconds. We’re removing it in the short term (giving a boost for program session loading), and are assessing how to reintroduce this info in an actionable way for users. This score remains visible in the session statistics.

Mobile: no impact; the average score isn’t displayed in program session screens.

Performance improvement: newsfeed loading time

Items in the newsfeed now show the total number of reactions and comments, instead of a number corresponding to the visible reactions and comments for the connected user. Removing this computational rule reduces loading time, as well as boosts the number of interactions shown for a specific element (and also satisfies the rule that the value of a statistic figure should not depend on who is viewing it).

Mobile: this feature benefits the loading time of newsfeed items in the mobile app.

Clickable lines in the manager’s dashboard

You can now click on the lines in the two tables of the manager’s dashboard.

  • Clicking on a line in the Training table will show the detailed statistics for the program session or path
  • Clicking on the learner’s name in the Learner table will redirect to the individual statistics page of that user.

See Track statistics of managees.

Mobile: no impact; the manager’s dashboard isn’t displayed in the mobile application.

Clickable team in the manager’s dashboard

You can now click on the number on the right of the page title Manager Dashboard to display the list of all managees.

Mobile: no impact; the manager’s dashboard isn’t displayed in the mobile application.

Playing courses from the Catalog when they are also part of a path

We clarified the context in which a course is played, when it is part of a non-linear path.

  • If the course is launched from a path, it is played in that path context.
  • If the course is not launched from a path:
    • if the course is only shared in non-linear paths, it is played in the path with the ongoing session that started first;
    • if the course is shared in non-linear paths and in the catalog, it is played in stand-alone;
    • if the course is shared in linear paths, we display a message redirecting them to the linear path with the ongoing session that started first.

Mobile: the behavior and the redirection message are also applied to the mobile app.

Online payments

We've moved our online bulling and payments to a new provider: Stripe.

Navigation & design updates

  • In newsfeeds, Learning Needs are now displayed with a pale pink border (instead of orange), to match its color in the homepage.
    • Mobile: no impact; training items don’t have color codes.
  • You can now click ... > Edit on the top right of a slot in the menu Dashboard > CLASSROOMS to directly open the settings page of the corresponding program session.
    • Mobile: no impact; this menu isn’t visible in the mobile application.
  • We reworded the error message displayed when a user tries to access a content for which they don’t have permissions (before, and after). We noticed this situation was often due to a user having multiple accounts. This new message was designed to give more context when that happens, and explain more clearly what to do.
    • Mobile: no impact; this message isn’t visible in the mobile application.
  • We slightly changed the design of the path editor: the section Steps is now visually distinct from the general path settings.
    • Mobile: no impact; paths cannot be edited in the mobile application.
  • The general information of a course (first activity in the left sidebar when editing a course) now has a fixed generic name Course Setup, instead of the name of the course.
    • Mobile: no impact; courses cannot be edited in the mobile application.
  • The first column of the Learner table in the manager’s dashboard is now frozen, which allows to keep the learner’s name visible even if there are many columns (= training items) in the table.
    • Mobile: no impact; the manager’s dashboard isn’t visible in the mobile application.
  • We added a small loading animation when you change the filters on the manager’s dashboard, to clarify when the data is still being computed.
    • Mobile: no impact; the manager’s dashboard isn’t visible in the mobile application.
  • We extended the scroll bar of the homepage sidebar to the whole height (instead of just the group list).
    • Mobile: no impact; the homepage sidebar isn’t displayed in the mobile application.

Solution: Live Training

Check-In code

To validate the presence of learners in a Classroom, we added a shareable code when opening check-in in a Classroom slot. Clicking OPEN CHECK-IN from Dashboard > CLASSROOMS automatically creates a code that session instructors can share with their learners. Users registered to the slot will have to enter that code from the session homepage.

Read more in Fill Classroom slot attendance.

Mobile: this code cannot be entered from the mobile application.

Send Check-In link to all pending learners in one click

Session instructors can now email the direct link to the Classroom slot check-in page, to registered learners who haven’t yet checked-in.

From the menu Dashboard > CLASSROOMS, hover your mouse over the number of pending users, and click the email icon.

You can also copy the link by clicking Copy link, on the right of the Classroom slot code.

Mobile: this feature is not available in the mobile application.

Check-In from the homepage

Learners who are registered to a Classroom slot on which check-in is open (and for which they haven’t yet checked in) can check-in directly from the homepage, in the section My work. See Access content from the homepage.

Mobile: this feature is not available in the mobile application.

Mobile updates

Path sessions now supported on iOS

Learners now have access to path sessions on the iOS mobile app.

API updates

We’re updating one existing route.

  • DELdeleteFromGroupCatalog can now delete path sessions from the Catalog of a group (on top of program sessions and courses). Just like for program sessions, give it an array of path session IDs, and voilà.
