  2. 📢 Just launched - Segments & Reach Out!

    New Feature

    We have just launched two new features called 'Segments' and 'Reach out designed to keep your users engaged.

    Segments:

    To segregate your users based on their behavior inside the academy, by adding single/multiple conditions which they have to satisfy.

    Reach out:

    To help you send Dynamic/One-time emails to the users whenever the users satisfy the particular condition you have segmented.

    Now your users can search for a particular course with the help of the 'Search by keyword' option available.

    We have also added a 'course category tab' for the users to filter courses as well.

  4. 🔒 Security Enhancement in 'Widgets'

    Improvement

    We have made a security enhancement within the 'Widgets' integration.

    You can now restrict the widget's access to only the domains you have specified in the settings as an Admin.

    Widgets - Security Enhancements

    This improvement prevents anyone from embedding the same iframe to another platform/domain since you have restricted it only to the domains that you have specified.

  6. Assessments and much more 🚀

    New Feature
    Improvement
    Fix

    In the last two months, we added interesting features and enhancements to Acadle. Following are a few,

    Employee ID

    We got a lot of requests from the users to have a unique ID, such as an employee ID for users, which can also be pushed to Acadle using the API or whole auth using SSO. Now you have an Employee ID on Registration, and you can also search with employee ID on the user list; Employee ID is Included in Import and Export as well.

    Custom Design and Logo for Dark mode

    You can now upload two logos for both dark more and bright mode

    Assessment

    Another most important feature for the Essential plan (Previously Onboarding plan) users is live now. You can now start creating assessments and do a manual review.

    Admin Settings - Redesign

    We made a couple of changes in the admin settings as well, such as combining all the integrations into a single tab, changing the Email settings layout etc.

    Custom Certificate Delete Option

    Course - Next Lesson Restriction based on Quiz Mark

    Another most requested feature is live now, to restrict the next lesson access based on the Quiz mark or percentage. You can now control the content access inside the quiz settings. Let's say if you do not want the next lesson to be accessed if the mark is less than 40, just add the settings and enable the 'retake' option, so the user will take multiple tests until he gets more than 40 and then the next lesson will be unlocked for him.

    Disabling Other Lessons While Taking Quiz

    Oh yeah, another important one. You can now disable access to other lessons while taking a quiz.

    Lesson Groups Collapse Option

    A simple collapsable feature to save space and ease the user experience. I am sure you will love it.

    Domain Tab Moved to Admin Menu

    We figured that the admin wanted to control the domain white-labelling option based on the privileges. So moved the menu to the 'Admin' section.

    Lesson - Attachment Tool Enhancements - Option for Control Preview and Download

    This is another feature request we received from many to control the preview and download of the PDF attachment. You can now see a settings icon after uploading the PDF, where you can control these permissions.

    Option for Admin to Edit User Details

    We know you need a couple of controls over the user details; check the USER menu to update your employee/customer/student details.

    Additional form elements in the Invitation Accept form

    We added a couple of more elements, such as employee ID, phone number etc., to the registration form. Check the login settings for more details.

    Lessons Ajax Listing and Optimization

    Not a small task, but most wanted. We did all possible options to get the content loading faster. We have identified a few more possibilities from the DB and infra level and will do our best as early as possible to optimise more and load faster.

    Custom Email Templates

    You can now customise the email contents or add more content to the outgoing emails, such as verification emails, password reset emails etc. Check Admin >> Email settings >> Email template for more details.

    Subject and body variables are mentioned on the right if you want to use them.

    SMTP Restriction

    We realized our domain/emails were getting affected, as the users started reporting as spam when we sent them an auto email such as password reset, invite etc., on your behalf. So we have made it mandatory to add your SMTP to send any notification from the academy.

    I know this is a lot, but I hope you like these updates
