  • Increased the maximum upload size for videos to 2 gigs per video.
  • Fixed a couple of minor issues.

November 25 2016

  • Added a new 'Training Admin' role that allows users to add, remove, and manage courses, users, and teams. Similar to a Company Admin, but without access to company settings.
    • All users that were previously Company Admins but not marked as an account owners are now 'Training Admins'.
    • All people that were account owners remain 'Company Admins'. Use Company Admin sparingly.

November 1 2016

  • Course collections can now be assigned to teams. Learn how.

Note: This is a "one time" assignment, just like when assigning a course collection to an individual person. This means if you add another course at a later date to the collection, any team (or individual) who was previously assigned the collection does not automatically get the new course. You can either assign the new course as usual, or re-assign the collection to the person/teams as needed. 

October 22 2016

  • Admins can now grant course enrollment permissions to Team Managers - allowing them to manage course enrollments for their team members. When granted, a Team Manager can:
    • Enroll members in courses
    • Unenroll members from courses
    • Force Skip and Reactivate Force Skipped courses
    • Reset enrollments
  • For each team, you can select the courses you want the Team Managers to be able to manage.
  • Currently, this new permission setting is only available under the Team management area. 
  • See how to grant course management permissions to Team Managers for more information on how to activate this permission on a team.
