Here's what's included in the second release of the year, 2022.2:
- Custom Role Creation Update
- Admin Navigation Update
- Marketing Email Opt-In on Registration Page
- VILT Timezone Selection Added
- Learner Bulk Import removed from Last Active Date triggers
Custom Role Creation Update
We've revamped the way custom roles are created! Users who can manage roles now have a wizard that guides them through creating a custom role from a template. We also added in-product descriptions for each permission to help you understand each one. The last step summarizes the new role so you can make sure it's correct before you create it.
To check out the new update, go to Users > Managers > Add Custom Role.
Review our article on Managing Admin Users for more guidance.
Admin Navigation Update
We've made a a slight update to our Navigation menu on the manager interface's sidebar. Managers should now use the Account link to open a submenu that lets them access Account info, Switch to Learner role if they have one, and lets them sign out.
Marketing Email Opt-In on Registration Page
Get more people to sign up for your newsletter by allowing learners to sign up while registering for your site outside of the checkout process.
If you use the Registration Page and want to enable this option, go to Settings > Setup > Primary > Registration container, and enable Ask learners to sign up for newsletter at registration?.
VILT Timezone Selection Added
You can now select a time zone for your webinar sessions. They default to your school's time zone, but you can always edit as needed. Learners will see this time zone selection on the webinar detail page unless you've enabled the Automatically change Dates & Times to local time zone site setting.
To view this field, go to Content > Manage Content > Any Webinar or VILT Event > Click the Content Title > View Event Step.
If your site has the setting Automatically change Dates & Times to local time zone enabled, we override the chosen time zone in favor of the learner's local time zone.
Learner Bulk Import removed from Last Active Date triggers
Learners created via bulk import will no longer display a last active date immediately after importing. The Last Active Date will be blank, the same behavior as if you had added the learner individually.
Heads Up: Content Authoring Legacy UI will be Removed
In the major feature release currently scheduled for the end of April (2022.4), the recently redesigned content management and authoring interfaces will become the default experience for all users, at the site and Panorama levels.
We will be sunsetting our legacy authoring interface, and the button to switch back to it will be removed from the UI. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your CSM for more information.
