April 5th, 2023 (v84)

Core product updates

Require learners to retake courses in a path

Use our new path option Mandatory Replay to help your learners stay in compliance; when enabled, this option requires learners retake all courses within a path and only shows the results for the retake in path result reports.

Identify paths that came from programs

We've added a Migrated Program tag to help differentiate paths that are manually created from paths that were created from a program.

Add a cover image to your path with the Unsplash image bank

You can now add a cover image to your paths using the Unsplash image bank.

Estimated weekly commitment option added to paths

In the path steps setting, you can now set an Estimated weekly commitment.

Quickly tell which learners are attending classroom training with the new RSVP status.

Instead of having to manage invites in an outside calendar invite, RSVPs are part of the 360Learning platform:

  • Learners can submit their RSVPs in 360Learning or via automated invitation emails sent by the platform.
  • Instructors can see how learners have responded to their classroom invite directly in 360Learning.

Impacted application:

Archive comments in the course forum

In order to hide questions that have been answered and requests that have been dealt with, authors and admins can now archive comments in the course forum, and filter them by:

  • Feedback inbox status (pending or completed);
  • visibility (internal or external);
  • archivity (archived or live).

(I am aware archivity isn’t a word. But it should be.)

Impacted application:

Other core product updates

Impacted application:

Path forum in the newsfeed

Messages posted in the forum of a path are now displayed in the newsfeed of enrolled users.

If you have the Globalization solution, users see only the messages in their language (and administrators see all messages)

Impacted application:

Simplified advanced settings

In order to simplify forum notification management, we removed two options from the group advanced settings:

Users receive an email when a new message is posted by a coach, an administrator or an instructor → corresponding to the notification option A new message is posted by an administrator, a coach or an instructor, in the personal notification settings of users.

Email notifications when a message is posted by a learner on a newsfeed are active. Each individual user can deactivate them in their settings. → corresponding to the notification option A new message is posted by a learner on a group or a session page, in the personal notification settings of users.

The corresponding notification options can still be disabled in the notification settings page, but they cannot be disabled by default by administrators.

CleanShot 2023-02-13 at 11.02.34.jpeg

We also added a new notification option Messages of all my users in a group newsfeed, in the section Other publications, which allows administrators to be notified of all new messages in the newsfeed of their group.

CleanShot 2023-02-13 at 11.03.52.jpeg

Impacted application:

Core product updates

rn.coursecopy.EN.gif

Impacted application:

Updated course option in paths: availability after enrollment

Path editors can now choose the option After the enrollment date (as a variation of After the session’s start date) to define an availability date for the courses.
