All this is now possible via the new course fields on the rulesets.

Existing certification report does provide the status of each requirement (complete/incomplete) but it does not allow them to see how many credits have been earned so far. We have added two new columns  Requirement Credits' and ‘Requirement Credits Earned’ to the list of columns on the user certification transcript report to enable the above use case. 

System & UI Changes:

Instructor Led Training: ‘Add User’ to Waitlist 

Description: Administrators can now directly add users to an ILT session’s waitlist. In the system today, there is no provision for admin to add users directly to a waiting list other than by adding them to the enrolled list and then demoting them to the waiting list. Additionally, there is no way for admins to add learners to a waiting list once the roster is full other than having to log in to each learner account and enrolling them one by one.  

System & UI Changes: 

A new ‘Add User(s)' button is available under the waitlist. This option is visible to admin’s and users with ILT manager role and instructors other than the ones added in limited access instructor section for a session. The video below shows the new configuration. 

 

Instructor Led Training: Session Type Enhancement 

Description: Once an admin creates an ILT session of any type and saves the session, the type field will become non-editable. If you are required to change the type of session, then you can use the existing duplicate session functionality to clone the session and make the required changes. 

System & UI Changes: 

The video below takes you through the new functionality. 

 

Instructor Led Training: Private Session Setting 

Description: A new configuration setting is introduced at the ILT session which will provide admins with the ability to create ‘private’ sessions within an ILT module. This setting is introduced keeping in mind the situation where the trainer wants to conduct training sessions for specific audience and not open to everyone. 

System & UI Changes: 

1. A new config setting called ‘Private’ is available under ILT session -> Properties.  

2. The setting has two values – Yes or No, No being the default value. 

3. If configured as 'Yes', the ILT session would not be visible under catalog and enrollment to the session can only be managed by users who have access to the session roster. 

4. If configured as 'No', the session will function as it does today. 

5. ILT module level setting like ‘Standalone Enrollment’ will overwrite this setting. This means if at the ILT module level, standalone enrollment setting is set to yes and at the ILT session level, private configuration is set to yes then the module level setting will supersede and the session will be available for enrollment under catalog. 

6. Video for configuration setting 

7. Video showing what learner will see once the setting is turned on 

 

Custom Data Set: Permission Management 

Description: In the system today, if you have ad-hoc custom data sets there is no way to restrict the view of custom reports for certain users or groups. To overcome this issue, we are introducing a new custom reporting permission which will dynamically appear in reporting permissions if you have custom data sets for your portal. Using this permission, you can manage which users have access to these reports. 

System & UI Changes: 

1. Your Inquisiq LMS portal will dynamically show the custom report permission if you have custom reports for your organization. You can choose to configure a role’s access to custom reports.

Bug Fixes 

  1. A bug has been fixed for certificate functionality. An awarded certificate was not displaying properly when it had an apostrophe in its name. This has not been fixed. 
  2. It was observed the ‘select supervisor action list available on supervisor tab of user profile was displaying the user for whom the supervisor is being selected as one of the available selection options. This has been corrected and the user for whom the supervisor is being selected in no longer available on the selection list. 
  3. An issue had been identified with ‘auto-join rules’ under certification which has not been fixed and the functionality is working as expected. 
  4. A bug had been reported wherethe last login date was not getting updated for users when user registers and then completes a course in a single go. This has now been fixed and the last login date is getting updated in the system. 
  5. It was observed that meeting dates are not being sorted in catalog calendar popup when an ILT session attached to course has multiple date/time slots in it. This has been corrected and the session times are now displaying in an ascending order of occurrence. 
  6. A bug had been identified in coupon code application, where coupon codes were applied and counted as consumed on items which were no longer available in the system. This has now been fixed.
