July 6th, 2022 (v71)

Core product updates

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 button SEE ALL RESULTS, that you can click to open the full search results page.
  • On the bottom, we renamed DISCOVER into Discover more, to make it more explicit.

Co-authored courses are now mine

If you are the co-author of a course, you can now see it in the section COURSESActiveMine.

This should reduce the hassle of finding back your co-authored courses, in the myriad of courses in the subsection All.

After all, they’re your courses too.

Confirmation toasts from top right to bottom left

We’re moving the green confirmation notifications (called "toasts") from the top right to the bottom left, to avoid overlapping with some other elements (such as the X to close popups).

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

We’re regrouping several sections in the homepage, under "My work".

CleanShot 2022-06-22 at 11.30.51.gif

Learn more about the homepage sections →

Design update: top bar

We’re updating the appearance of the top bar, on the following pages:

  • homepage;
  • group pages;
  • search results;
  • feedback inbox.

In the new top bar, the three dots icon "..." is replaced with the connected user’s profile picture, which is clickable. The same options (Results, Personal settings and Sign out) are available.

This new top bar will progressively be visible in other pages, as we upgrade them to our new design rules.

Downloading attendance sheet

You can now download the attendance sheet of a Classroom slot in the CSV format.

Horizontal carousel and See All button

We’re adding a horizontal carousel to the homepage. You can now click on the arrows on the right and left of displayed elements to slide.

We’re also adding a "See All" button next to the section titles, so you can directly see all the elements in the section.

New notifications for paths

In the continuation of our quest to replace programs by paths, we’re now sending a notification when a path session ends in 72 hours (if the path session has an end date).

Linear paths by default

To best prepare for the transition from programs, new paths will now be linear by default. You can still deactivate the option, only the default value is changed.

Share path Certificates on LinkedIn

Just like program Certificates, you can now share path Certificates on LinkedIn.

Design update: attachments in posts

We improved the appearance of attachments in posts. They now take less space, and have an icon.

Before:

mceclip0.png

Now:

mceclip1.png

No more posts from correction forum in Feedback inbox

Posts coming from the 1-to-1 forum in the open question validation interface are no longer displayed in the Feedback inbox. We want to keep those private exchanges in the validation interface exclusively, and not handle them as tasks.

New column for direct reports in user export

To be consistent with the view in the interface, we’re adding a column "Direct report" in the user export file, indicating the number of managees for the user.

Custom fields in path enrollment

You can now use custom fields to filter users when enrolling them in a path session.

Projects: fewer bubbles, more explanations

At the top of the Projects page, we’re now displaying user profile pictures only if there are at least 3 ongoing Projects for the connected user.

If profile pictures are displayed, we’re also adding a text indicating to click on them for filtering.

Focused learning needs

When creating a learning need, the default group is now the lowest in the hierarchy, to which the creator belongs (instead of the highest). This should avoid spamming your whole organization with learning needs that concern only your team.

Flexible learning needs

When creating a learning need from the homepage, you can now change the group linked to it.

Projects average delivery time

We added a section "Average delivery time" to the section "Projects" in the group statistics page.

Admin section for managing learning needs

We’re adding an admin section for all administrators, to better manage learning needs. They can give them a status (New, Exploring, On hold, Project ongoing, Done, Already exists, Discarded), and see them in a table view.

No more labels

We’ve now completely removed labels from the platform. Use custom fields instead.

Solution: Coaching

  • You can now automatically generate subtitles for videos that are uploaded to, or recorded in, the platform.

Solution: Globalization

  • You can now select the course language in the home screen of the course, on iOS and Android.

Solution: HCM Connect

  • We’re adding a new integration with OpenSesame, which will synchronize OpenSesame’s courses and stats into 360Learning.
  • Synchronized Coursera courses now display the following information in 360Learning:
    • Estimated duration;
    • Difficulty level;
    • Content type;
    • Subject.

May 4th, 2022 (v68)

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.

New mode: group challenge (mobile only)

Coaches can now challenge their group from their mobile app. Invited learners will be able to play the challenge from their mobile app.

Both coaches and learners will see the results and ranking in their mobile app.

Impacted applications:

Certificates for paths

Authors and administrators can now add certificates to paths. When adding a certificate, you can either choose an existing certificate or create a new one. Users receive the certificate when they complete the path.

Users who complete a path with a certificate now also receive the same email notification as with programs.

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:

  • Attendance rate (last 12 months)
  • Completion rate (over the last 12months)
  • Success rate (last 12 months)
  • Attendance / completion bubble chart

Impacted applications:

Microsoft Teams app integration with 360Learning

Microsoft Teams users can now install a 360Learning app, that will send notifications to their Teams channels when someone posts a message , or replies to a message, in the group linked to the channel. (April 28th edit: we decided to remove notifications for replies, as it was too intrusive.)

Solution: Globalization

Free Trial platform updates

Contrary to what we announced last time, the two email notifications indicating that the Free Trial is about to expire will be sent after this release only. For reference:

  • 1 email notification 5 days before expiration, sent to the platform owner.
  • 1 email notification on the day of expiration, sent to the platform owner.

We also added a welcoming popup on all new Free Trial platforms, to better explain what is included in the Free Trial.

Impacted applications:

Redesigned Project page

We redesigned the Project page, and added individual deadlines on courses.

Impacted applications:

Redesigned permissions section in user profile

We redesigned the appearance of group permissions in user profiles (when clicking on a user from the section MEMBERS of the settings of a group. The section is now called Manage group permissions, a breadcrumb is displayed under each group name to indicate hierarchy, and the different roles are more clearly labeled.

Impacted applications:

You can access the notifications menu by clicking ...Personal settingsNOTIFICATIONS on the top right of the homepage.

Impacted applications:

Path Session completion notification

Instructors will now receive an email notification when an enrolled user completes a path session.

Impacted applications:

Platform admins can still edit all custom field values.

Impacted applications:

More scores in the Manager Dashboard

We added a new figure Global score in the Manager Dashboard, and a section Score in the table.

Impacted applications:

More robust exports

We improved the engine behind exports, resulting in a more robust computation (for both direct and email downloads).

If exporting large amounts of data was resulting in an error, clicking RECEIVE BY EMAIL will now ensure you receive the export (although really huge exports could take up to 30 minutes to process).

Impacted applications:

Learning Needs declared from the homepage

Longer Learning Needs

The description of Learning Needs is now limited to 800 characters, instead of 200.

Impacted applications:

Project lead and start dates in Projects table

We added two columns in the table of the Projects page: Project Lead and Start date. We realized those two items were useful to admins, and not visible enough.

Impacted applications:

Filters on Projects statistics

In the section Projects of group statistics, you can now filter between ongoing and delivered, and display the number of created courses.

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

Impacted applications:

Team platforms who were still using Cheddar as payment system will be automatically moved to Stripe on the day after subscription renewal. No action is required from owners; the only visible changes will be:

  • The button CHANGE MY CC becomes MANAGE MY SUBSCRIPTION
  • The payment system interface is now handled by Stripe, instead of Cheddar

Team platforms created after January 11th, 2022 have been using Stripe as default payment system.

Impacted applications:

Navigation & design

  • The sidebar and top navigation (breadcrumb, search bar, notifications icon, and creation button) are now displayed on the following pages:
    • Advanced search (click on the search bar, then hit enter ↵)
    • Personal settings page (from the homepage, click ...Personal settings)
  • We slightly changed the text of the banner in the menu Projects, which created confusion.
    • Before: "Learning Needs are disabled in your groups 🙁"
    • Now: "Learning Needs are disabled in some of your groups 🙁"
  • We deleted the presentation video in group settings, (which didn’t appear anywhere anymore, outside the settings page).

Impacted applications:

Coaches and administrators can see courses shared in their Catalog from the dashboard

Coaches and group administrators can now access the statistics of courses shared in their Catalog from the menu DashboardCOURSES.

This is about consistency; coaches and group administrators already had the required permissions to access the course statistics page if they had its URL. This should now allow them to support their team without losing time.

Erratum (March 23rd): this feature will not be shipped on March 23rd. We don’t yet have an estimated date.

Impacted applications:

Continue editing paths

In the homepage, the section Continue editing now displays path according to their last modification date, instead of their creation date.

Impacted applications:

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).

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.

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

CleanShot_2022-01-20_at_14.19.29.gif

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

  • DEL deleteFromGroupCatalog 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.

December 8th, 2021 (v61)

Core product updates

New look and feel for Linker questions

Based on user feedback, we’ve tweaked the functionality and updated the look and feel of our Linker questions. Instead of having to rearrange the items in a list, Learners will now connect the dot between matching items.

Sending reminders to team via the Manager Dashboard

Managers can now send reminders about outstanding training to their team members straight from the Manager Dashboard. You can select which learners the notification will go to and customize the message.

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. Click MANAGEES > My team
  3. In the top right panel, click Send reminder (bell icon) next to the training you want to send a reminder for
  4. Select the learners you want to contact
  5. Click NEXT
  6. Click Email
  7. Customize your message
  8. Click SEND
  • For more info on sending reminders, go here.
  • For more info on our Manager Dashboard, go here.

Tracking classroom fill rate

To enable instructors to quickly review the fill rate of their classrooms, we’ve added new columns to the classroom dashboard:

  • Learners: Shows the number of learners in a classroom.
  • Fill rate: Shows percentage of spots filled for classroom slots with a max capacity set.

Improved the performances of the groups statistics (but fewer sorting options)

We improved the loading time of the section Results and statistics of a group. This comes at the cost of no longer being able to sort the section Learners by Time Spent and Last Activity (you can no longer click on the column headers).

You can still access those two items in exports:

Improved the general data export

  • Strengthened logic for large exports: We revamped the logic behind our general data export. Clicking RECEIVE BY EMAIL will take a little longer to generate however, it will no longer crash for huge files.
  • Easier access to general data export: We added access to the general data export to the Dashboard navigation panel. From your homepage sidebar, click Dashboard. The EXPORT button is now at the bottom left of the sidebar.
  • Added date filter to more export granularities: Enabled filtering by date within running the general data export by classroom.

Learning Needs displayed on the homepage

We added a couple of new sections to the homepage for easy access to Learning Needs:

  • Learning Needs section: We added a new section specifically for Learning Needs on the platform homepage. Groups with at least one Learning Need created will also have this section on their group homepage.
  • New training items section: New Learning Needs will now also pop up alongside courses, program sessions, and path sessions in the New training items section.

NOTE: For details. Check out our access content from the homepage article.

New role: Project Lead

We added a new role in the Project squad: Project Lead.

The Project Lead is a squad member who can add or remove members squad (a permission so far restricted to the administrators of the group linked to the Project).

See how to add, edit or remove a Project Lead in Edit a Project.

Filling attendance temporarily disabled

We temporarily disabled the possibility to fill learners’ attendance in a Classroom from the menu Dashboard > CLASSROOMS. We are working on reintroducing it in a better form (more on that soon).

Platforms with the Live Training Solution can still force the legacy version by clicking OPEN CHECK-IN, then checking Absent/Present on the right of the learners’ name.

Navigation & design updates

  • We redesigned the interface of the steps editor in a path, to make them clearer, and more consistent with the program template editor.
  • We added the standard authoring tool features to the header of the path editor. From the path editor, you can now:
    • Go back to the list of paths by clicking < on the top left
    • See the title of the path in the header, instead of the top section
    • Access the path statistics by clicking Results and statistics on the top right
    • Play the path by clicking Play on the top right
    • Delete the path by clicking ... > Delete on the top right.
  • When playing a course, hovering on the list of activities on the left now shows the titles of all activities (even the ones that haven’t been played yet), instead of just bullet points.
  • Group administrators can now see the list of all custom fields (but not edit them, nor delete them) by going in their group settings, then click Keywords > User Custom Fields
  • We slightly changed the appearance of tables loading in the Dashboard (this instead of that).
  • To be consistent with the term in Dashboard, we added a "Beta" before PATH when clicking + from the homepage.
  • We tweaked the homepage sidebar to improve group visibility (smaller font, less spacing, scroll across the whole sidebar, wider sidebar).

Integration updates

Universal provisioning connector

Sync data between 360Learning and your other tools easier than ever with our user provisioning connector. The connector allows systems to sync data through our SFTP server.

  • We used this connector to build integrations specifically for Hibob, Foederis, and Workday.
  • You can also use the connector for any unlisted system that can export a CSV file to an SFTP or FTPS server.

NOTE: Go here to view the setup guide. Interested in the user provision connector? Contact your Account Manager for more information

API updates

We’re adding four new routes.

  • GET getUsersNeedingRegistrationToClassroom, to get the list of learners (ID) who are not registered yet for any classroom in a given program session.
  • PUT addUsersToClassroomslot, to add users to a Classroom slot.
  • DEL removeUsersFromClassroomslot, to remove users from a Classroom slot.
  • GET getPathUsers, to get the list of learners (ID) enrolled in any session of a given path.

And we’re updating one existing route.

  • PUT addToGroupCatalog can now add path sessions to the Catalog of a group (on top of program sessions and courses). Give it an array of path session IDs, and voilà.

Solution: Live Training

New classroom check-in page for learners

We added a new check-in page for classroom slots. The new page collects the learner’s electronic signature for the classroom attendance sheet.

November 24th, 2021 (v60)

Core product updates

Webcam is the new default

We changed the default choice for screen recordings, from Screen only to Screen & Webcam. It’s just more engaging.

Reminder: you can record videos in group feeds, as course activities, or as course questions.

More path statistics

  • You can now download the statistics for all path sessions you can access in one click.
  • You can now view and download the statistics for all sessions within a specific path (instead of only per session, until now).
  • In the path session statistics page, you can now click on a path step to see the details per learner (instead of only the general attendance, average time spent, and score).
  • We revamped the export for the statistics of a specific path session — essentially adding more columns.
  • We also added the start and end dates on the top right of the path session statistics page.

Check out our Track path session statistics article for more info.

More Classroom statistics

  • Platform administrators can now download detailed statistics per learner per Classroom slot. See Track Classroom statistics.
  • We added two new columns in the session export: Classroom slot start date and Classroom slot end date.
  • You can also download an overview of Classroom slots. (This feature was already available, but we just wrote the article 😬: Download an overview of Classroom slots).

More managers statistics

We designed a new beta dashboard for managers. You can access it through Dashboard>MANAGEES, and its new features are described in Track statistics of managees.

(We’re still keeping the old one for now, under the unflattering term "Old dashboard", at least until all its current use cases are covered by the new one.)

More custom fields

You can now filter by custom fields on the following pages:

  • section USERS>Active members (+ submenus) of a group;
  • section USERS>Delete users (+ submenus) of a group;
  • sections MANAGERS and MANAGEES of the manager selection window (see Add managers).

Navigation & design updates

  • The edition screen of paths is now a full page (instead of a page nested in the Dashboard), to be consistent with the edit screen of courses, program templates, and program sessions.
  • We tweaked the homepage sidebar to improve group visibility (smaller font, less spacing, wider sidebar).
  • We slightly changed the date (1st and 15th of the month instead of every Monday) and context  (the timeframe is between 10 days and 2 months ago) of the email notification sent when created courses were not shared anywhere.
  • We tweaked the design of the date picker:
    • The hour is entered as 24 hours, instead of having to choose between AM and PM
    • We added a placeholder containing the current date when no date is entered

API

We’re adding three new routes.

  • [DEL] removeGroupsFromPathSession, to unenroll groups from a path session.
  • [GET] getProgramSessionClassroomSlots, to get the list of Classroom slots for a given program session.
  • [GET] getClassroomSlotRegistrations, to get the attendance data for a given Classroom slot.

We designed a short slide deck to explain the use case for the second and third routes.

See our API documentation for more details on how to use each route.

Solution: Globalization

Localized subtitles

You can now upload subtitles that will be linked to the course language. This allows you to translate subtitles only, instead of entire videos. See Add localized subtitles to a video.

Solution: HCM Connect

Working around SAP SuccessFactors languages

In SAP SuccessFactors, an item will only be presented to a user if the metadata exists in their language.

  • We clarified our rule in the setup documentation: metadata are sent untranslated in all languages found in the SAP SuccessFactors platform, at the time of the connector creation.
  • If you add a new language to SAP SuccessFactors, contact your SA to request a re-synchronization of courses — otherwise, metadata will not be sent in the new language.

October 27th, 2021 (v59)

Core product updates

Relocated results, personal settings, and logout

To simplify our navigation panel, we moved the personal setting, results, and logout links to the top right corner of homepage side panel.

Homepage improvements for users

To improve the homepage experience, we updated several components:

  • New “completed trainings” section: Learners will be able to easily find their past training items in the new Completed trainings section.
  • Call to action placeholders: Updated default workspace display for users with less platform activity. Admins/authors are encouraged to create a course, Managers are encouraged to view their team's stats in the dashboard, and learners are encouraged to declare a Learning Need (if activated) or to edit their profile.
  • Improved path and program minis: To give users quicker visibility on their due dates and end dates, we updated the design of our program and path minis.

Removed Draft status from courses

We simplified our course creation workflow by removing the draft state. Instead of requiring authors to click Publish, courses are now automatically Active at creation.

NOTE: Active courses won’t be visible to learners until you add them to a group catalog and/or library.

Updated course creation features

We added the following features to the course creation features:

  • Course template preview: Authors can now hover over a course template for a preview of the activities.
  • Course edit screen opens on settings: When users open the course edit screen, it now takes them to the general information page instead of the last activity.
  • Owner group: Like paths, courses now have an owner group. Authors and administrators of the owner group can edit the course.

New languages: Czech, Hungarian, Slovak

Users can now set their platform language to Czech, Hungarian, or Slovak!

Corrected time spent calculation on OPCO attestation

The time spent on all attempts is now counted on the OPCO attestation file.

Downloadable classroom attendance sheet table

Instructors can now download their classroom attendance sheets directly from the attendance table.

Filtering by custom fields now available in new areas

We added the ability to filter by custom fields to new areas in the platform:

  • Viewing program session registrants.
  • Sending a reminder about program sessions.
  • Viewing program session waiting list.
  • Viewing learners assigned to a classroom block.
  • Viewing program session detailed results.

Added results by step to path sessions stats page

Admins, coaches, and path session instructors can now view results grouped by path step on the path sessions stats page.

No more sorting by Time spent or Last activity

We removed the possibility to sort tables by clicking on the header of Time spent and Last activity in the section Results and Statistics>Learners of a group. This was crashing platforms with many users, and we don’t have a clean way of solving this in the short run.

You can still order and filter those values using CSV exports:

NOTE: We’re planning to reintroduce this feature later, in a better form.

Navigation and design updates

Here are some of the other navigation and design updates we made this release:

  • Improved the design of our date picker on the path session editor pages, project edit pages, user administration page, and filters with time intervals.
  • Added count of selected filters to tableview and data grid display filter icons.
  • Removed black border from videos in courses.

Learning Need updates (Enterprise)

Archiving Learning Need projects

Admins and project groups now have the ability to archive projects. See Archive & delete a Project.

Updated project status name

Previously, there were multiple status names for completed learning need projects. We updated all of these instances to Delivered for consistency.

Other learning need updates

Here are some of the other updates we made to our Learning Need features:

  • Adjusted the ranking algorithm for learning need items in the newsfeed.
  • Added highlight to suggested experts when launching learning need project.
  • Based on user feedback, we updated the Apply button to Volunteer and Unapply to Cancel Volunteering.

Integration updates

HCM integration improvements

  • Automatic assignment for Cornerstone and SuccessFactors: If a learner accesses a program session that they are not assigned to from either CSOD or SuccessFactors, we now automatically assign them to that session.
  • Cornerstone HRIS user sync: We improved the CSOD integration’s data synchronization by creating an FTP connector for CSOD’s user sync.

Billing update: Program licenses

Paths counted towards annual plan starting October 27th

Effective October 27th, paths count towards used licenses in the Users Credits billing offer. Platform owners can now see used licenses for both paths and programs on our billing page.

  • This update is not retroactive. If learners accessed a path before October 27th, that will not count as a used license.
  • Viewing a previously completed path session will also not count as a used license.
  • Viewing a path included within a path will use two licenses.

 

October 6th, 2021 (v58)

Core product updates

Using course templates

When creating a course, authors now have access to five templates for common course types (OnboardingSoftware TrainingUniversalKnowledge Check or Compliance / Security).

Quick access to training items from homepage

To give authors and administrators even quicker access to their work items, we’ve replaced the Continue creating on the course dashboard with a Continue Editing section directly on the homepage.

This section shows items that users are the author or co-author of, have been updated in the last two months, and are not archived or deleted.

Mass downloading certificates

Administrators and coaches can now download in one click all certificates earned by learners they are allowed to see, directly from the platform. See Download certificates.

  • Track and measure attendance by accessing attendance rates for live training sessions right inside the 360Learning platform
  • Access past sessions recordings from the platform

Solution: Extended Enterprise

We added a more meaningful message when users try to self-register to groups with an email address that is already linked to a 360Learning account. We can’t exactly disclose where the email address is already used, so we just focus on what to do to.

Other updates

  • Users can now reset their password from the iOS mobile app.
  • We renamed a few notifications that were mentioning "face-to-face" and "webinars" into "on-site classrooms" and "virtual classrooms". See the full list of notifications here.

Classroom dashboard visibility

We made tweaks to the visibility settings for slots displayed on the classroom dashboard.

Updated visibility and permissions for paths and path sessions

To give everyone access to the info and edit permissions needed to efficiently manage path sessions, we made a few updates to our path permissions:

  • Expanded the users can view path session statistics. (Article link)
  • Gave coaches and admins of path owner groups the ability to edit and share path sessions

Solution: Live

Path description is now displayed in enrollment notifications

The email notifications sent upon path enrollment now include the path description.

See the details of the notification here.

Learn more on Add subtitles to a video.

Managers now access their team’s stats in 1 click

Managers who click Dashboard are now automatically redirected to the dashboard of their managees (instead of, previously, clicking Dashboard>GROUPS>Managees). One click instead of three.

Managers who also have an administrator role are not redirected to the dashboard of their managees, but still have a dedicated tab MANAGEES in their dashboard. Two clicks instead of three.

Learn more on Track statistics of managees.

Access statistics faster

If you have the required permissions to see the statistics of a course, program or path, you can now click ...>See statistics on the top right of their picture (we call it « the miniview ») in the homepage.

Suggest experts when creating a Learning Need

Users who create a new Learning Need now have a new field called Suggested experts, where they can suggest users who might be a good fit.

We realized that users who created Learning Needs often had an idea of who would be a good candidate — but that candidate didn’t always apply. We want to bridge that gap.

Learn more on Create a Learning Need.

Access course settings by clicking the cog icon

You can now access the course settings by clicking the cog icon on the top right of a course in edit screen (instead of scrolling down).

Filterable custom fields

Custom fields can now be selected when filtering users.

On any list of users, click Filter on the top right, then click + below Custom Fields.

When filtering on a custom field, the table dynamically adds a column whose header corresponds to the custom field title.

Reminder: custom fields are planned to replace labels.

Coaches can create path sessions

Coaches who have access to a path as learners can now access a restricted view of the edit screen, where they can share the path to their group.

Mobile

  • iOS only: an excerpt of the course description is now displayed in the home screen of the course.
  • We decreased the font size of the author in the course home screen.
  • We removed the 360Learning logo that appeared when loading the first activity of a course (which caused confusion for white-labeled apps).

Solution: Sales Enablement

Minor updates

  • We removed the chatbot from free trial platforms. Initially thought as a way to help new users, we realized it created more confusion than comfort.
  • We also removed the button +>PATH from Free Trial platforms. Free Trial platforms can still create paths, by going in Dashboard>PATHS, then clicking + on the top right.
  • We removed the preview of courses, paths, or programs in the side panel of the homepage; clicking now redirects to the element’s homepage.
  • We removed the + GROUP button in the popup window when clicking SEND A REMINDER in the menu USERS>Invitations>Sent from the settings of a group. This button was rarely used (6 groups created over the past 3 months).
  • We removed the placeholder Add your job in the job field of a user profile.
  • We changed the default logo for new platforms. We’re not in 2002 anymore, for Pete’s sake.
  • We removed the section about skills in the program session stats page, and the program template stats page. This was slowing the display of the page (sometimes crashing!), for low usage.

August 4th, 2021 (v55)

Paths now include sessions

Paths now have sessions. When creating new Paths, instructors will need to create a session to share the path with learners. For Paths that already existed, you will see a session with no End Date filled out added.

Check out our Create a path and Share path with learners articles for more information on how to use this functionality!

Updates to Path statistics dashboard

With sessions added to paths, the path statistics dashboard view has been updated. Stats are now viewable per sessions. For more information, check out our Track Paths statistics article.

To let your learners sign up for their own classroom slot in your program session:

  1. When creating your program session, click Advanced options under the Session general properties section
  2. Check the Let learner self-register to classroom slots box

Check out our article on how to add multiple classroom slots to your program session!

Paths removed from profiles

We decided not to display the list of earned Paths in users profile page anymore. Although this usually serves as a nice display of achievements, it could also create GDPR awkwardness.

We're releasing a 360Learning App for Salesforce that will recommend relevant training items on each Salesforce Opportunity. Feel free to reach out to the team for more information! 
    • Invite coaches to share best pitch examples: Expertise sharing from top performers is key in helping your team level up and eventually, win more deals. To do so, admins will be prompted to share video pitches with an average score of 4,5/5 or more to the team via the coaching interface.

    Learning Content

    • Blended Learning: when creating a new Classroom block via the program template editor, you will be able to fill in 1 new field:
      • Training objectives (text field)
    • Paths
      • Relative Due Dates: you will be able to set a Relative Due Date on a Path's step. This option will automatically compute the availability of the step based on the enrollment date.  In other words, you won't have to set the availability date of the step (D+1, D+2... after enrollment) manually. Relative Due Dates are optional and indicative: Learners will still be able to access the step even if they're late to the step. Finally, you will be able to set Relative Due Dates on new and existing Paths. This opens a whole new set of statistics on Paths. In the Dashboard, you will be able to see at a glance which Learners are falling behind on their learning journey. Please note: you will only be able to download these statistics starting March 31st. 

    Learning Analytics

    • Learner's Score on Paths: in the Dashboard, you will be able to access a Learner's score on a Path. The data will be available on a Path page, and also from users/groups menus in the Dashboard. The score will be based on the average score of each completed step:
      • If the step is a course: the score will be based on the course's score
      • If the step is a program: the score will be based on the number of courses in the session and the best score amongst all attempts.  
      • If the step is a path: the Dashboard will feature the path's score. 

    360Learning for Enterprise

    • Delete a project: squad members will be able to delete the project by accessing the options in the collaboration interface. 
    • Name a project from the management interface: when creating a new module via the project, you are unable to give it a name. You have to go into the authoring tool and access the course settings. You will be able to name the course directly when you add it to the project. 
    • New platform prompt: best practices from top project management suggest that communicating with the team as soon as the project starts increases team performance. We're putting our own 360Learning spin on it by preparing a pre-comment draft, ready to use as soon as you launch the project. The message reads as follows: 
      • title: Kick off the project! 🚀
      • title: "[@project member 1] [@project member 2] [@project member ...] Welcome to the project! Next steps are ..."

    Collaborative Activity

    • Reactions Score: meet the Reactions Score! In the Dashboard, you will be able to see which course needs your attention the most (for example: give additional information to Learners or update documents) via a Score computed on the number of Reactions. This score ranges from -100 to 100. We compute it as follows: (total of positive Reactions) - (total of negative Reactions) / (total number of played courses and activities). The Dashboard will highlight courses with the lowest score. 
    • UX/UI: comments will be made via a pop-up window

    Globalization

    • Feature removal:  the Reactions bar features 5 types of Reactions: I like it/ I learned something / This is outdated / I didn't get it / I disagree. To streamline the types of Reactions, we're removing the "I disagree" reaction type. Reactions computed for the "I disagree" type of feedback will be re-computed into the "I didn't get it" type of feedback". This change also applies to mobile apps.
