Release Notes - Week Ending August 24th, 2018


Flagging Comments

Last week, we added the ability for students to flag activities for incorrect or inappropriate content. This week, we are adding a similar capability for activity comments. Students will see a Report link next to each comment made on an activity. When clicked, a pop-up modal displays where a reason for reporting can be chosen, as well as an optional comment. Administrators may run a new report type, “Reported Comments,” to view this data over a particular date range.



New letter trigger for Activity Sessions: “Day-Of Reminder”

A new letter trigger type has been added for Activity Sessions. The “Day-Of Reminder” trigger will send a reminder email up to 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours or 8 hours prior to the start time of the session. If a session has multiple dates defined for it, a reminder will be sent at the appropriate amount of time before each date event.



Report output now defaults to five columns of data

In order to increase the performance of reporting, when an administrator creates a new report, we are now showing only five columns of default data in the report output. This solves the issue of a report being generated which contained data that an administrator didn’t want in the first place and deleted anyway.



Catalog Home page can now be filtered by locale

When an administrator is viewing the Catalog Home tab of a particular branding organization to edit it, if they have defined many catalog rows for different locales (languages), it can be quite difficult to manage all on one page. To solve this problem we’ve added a filter to display only those rows for a particular locale.





Login requirement for unauthenticated users accessing public activities not standard

When a user who hadn’t logged into the LMS yet was viewing public activities in the catalog, their experience would be different based on the type of activity. We’ve standardized the behavior to allow unauthenticated users access to the Activity page, but require a login when a completion action is undertaken (e.g., the “Mark as Complete” button). Therefore, the following buttons will trigger the Login process after showing the activity in its normal, unlocked state for unauthenticated users:

  • Posts and Links: “Mark as Complete” button
  • Files: “Download” and “Mark as Complete” buttons
  • eLearning Courses: “Launch” button
  • Google Docs: “View on Google Docs” and “Mark as Complete” buttons
