Enhancements

Badges

  • Full support for awarding badges compliant with Mozilla's Open Badges specification.

  • Activities or system-wide rules can be configured to award badges upon completion.

  • Earned badges are displayed under the user's profile inside the Learning Hub as well as the admin interface.

  • Clear LXP's implementation of badges is a cross-integration of Open Badges with xAPI to ensure rich data is collected on earned badges and is fed into reporting and analytics.

Admin

  • Redesigned user profile screen which includes the ability to edit a user's attributes on-the-fly without having to upload a CSV file.

  • Upgraded version history panel and added support for assets as well as activities.

  • Added the ability to roll-back to a previous version of an activity/asset, including an inline preview for previous versions of an image asset.

Fixes

Enhancements

Enhancements

Face to Face

  • Manager Approval Sessions:

    • When a manager declines an attendance request, a message is displayed to the user informing them of the rejection and the approval flow is reset so they are able to re-apply, if they wish.

    • If a manager approves an attendance request when the session is full, this now adds the user to the waitlist and shows an appropriate message.

    • After approving or rejecting a request, managers can no longer change the approval status, the user must initiate a new request by re-applying.

    • Ability to add a contact message at the bottom of the Hub's Session screen. e.g."For any queries, contact test_team@support.com". Note this message will only show when a corresponding contact email has been configured.

Learning Hub

  • Tasks List: Improvements made to the tasks list UI to show different icons when task is approved or rejected, and the entire task row has been made clickable to launch the task. An optional resolution property also added to tasks allowing for some context around the completion of the task. e.g. a request being either "approved" or "denied".

Fixes

  • Fixed loading of date enrolment rules so the date value no longer becomes corrupted.

  • Fixed creation of a new session not immediately appearing in the sessions list for an event, even if it matched the search filters applied.

  • Fixed an issue where launching a session-approval request wouldn't always display the approve and reject buttons for the manager.

  • Fixed an issue where Reject button was getting cut-off on the mobile view of session approval screen.

  • Fix modal notifications not opening from the Hub's Manager Dashboard Team screen.

  • Fixed completion icons not showing for Session attendance request tasks in the Hub's Manager Dashboard tasks.

Enhancements

Fixes

  • Enabled permission checks to hide Search from the Learning Hub.

  • Fixed an issue with self-registered cancellations not appearing in reports.

  • Fixed an unhandled error in Learning Hub facilitator view when a user was enrolled but did not include a name.

  • Fixed session cancellations triggered from the Learning Hub not being included on Clear View's session enrolments table.

Enhancements

CMS

  • New Components:

    • Hero Banner: A full width banner representing an activity (defaults to launched activity), customisable title and optional subtitle.

    • Activity Tile: Use to visually display and launch an activity.

    • Activities Carousel: A collection of Activity Tiles represented in a horizontal scrollable carousel.

  • Content Activity Option: New configuration field for pulling activity content from an alias activity – this is useful when multiple child activities should use the same content as their parent.

Face to Face

  • Registration and Cancellation Cut-Off Periods: Ability to configure a system-wide date range to prevent late registrations or cancellations.

  • Event Management UI:

    • Ability to filter sessions by name, attributes or dates.

    • Ability to view cancelled and rescheduled users within a session users list.

    • Ability to search for a learner to view their status on a on a particular session.

  • Manager Approval Changes:

    • Upon requesting approval, leaner now receives a notification (optionally configured as an email), advising them to speak with their manager.

    • When a manager rejects an attendance request, learner will receive a notification (optionally configured as an email) indicating this.

    • When a session is full at the time the manager is about to approve an attendance request, a message is shown to the manager indicating the session is full. Approval can still be given but the leaner will remain on the waitlist.

  • Facilitator Calendar: Added a new calendar view for facilitators to make it easier to find assigned sessions by a specific date.

Notifications

  • Disable attachments: Attachments can now be disabled per notification (manual configuration only). This is useful to disable event calendar invites on Face to Face notifications that do not require one.

Enrolments

  • Reorder Activities: Drag and drop the activities list (or inside the activity drawer) to reorder activities within an enrolment.

  • Between Dates: New between option for configuring enrolment rules to match between two dates.

  • Custom Value: Enrolment rules can now define a custom attribute value to match on, instead of being forced to use an existing attribute. Simply search for the missing attribute and tick "Add Custom Value".

Reporting

  • Filter and Group By Redesign: The Data Exploration interface has changed to a vertical layout to better highlight the sequence of filtering and grouping report data.

  • Data Source Switching: Data Exploration now has the ability to switch on data source so reports can be generated on any of Analytics, Completion, Enrolment or Activity data.

  • Formula Value: Added the ability to add a First Populated formula to the report for merging column values when one may not exist.

  • Column Values Changes:

    • Columns can now be optionally hidden from the output report - useful if they're used solely for calculating a formula.

    • Drag and drop already added column values to easily reorder them in the resulting report.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue with adding/removing users from a User Group not triggering reprocessing of enrolments that referenced that Group.

  • Fixed an issue where changing a workflow assigned to children of a module wouldn't trigger processing on the new workflow.

  • Fixed an error where the Manager Tasks list wouldn't load if a task was present for an activity that had been removed from the system.

  • Accessibility improvements have been made throughout the Learning Hub to better support screen-readers and keyboard accessibility.
