Special Attention

Removal of Additional Locations [Deprecation Warning] [Platform]: We launched Is Friendly To My Time event filter on March 23 to make it easier for the end-users to discover online events that better fit into their time-zone-aware schedule, regardless of their physical location. Similarly, we're launching in the upcoming week the same filter for Mentorship sessions. With that in place, we find little value in having the organizers and hosts manually curate the list of additional locations where their events/sessions show up in. As a result, we will be deprecating the Additional Locations feature on September 28. If you have any concerns/suggestions, please reach out to your admin or your PlusPlus Customer Success Manager.

Minor Improvements

  • Embed websites & videos in articles: Users are now able to embed videos and previews of websites inside articles. While video embedding works out of the box, the embed websites feature is only available if the Content Embedding toggle inside Snippets & Tracks settings is on. Users can access both through the Embed button in the Text field. Please see Managing Video Content to learn more. [Articles]

  • Degreed Integration - Sync only Upcoming Events: Past events are no longer pushed to Degreed. [Integrations]

  • Add/Remove Courses to/from My Learning Content: Courses can now be added to and removed from the “My Learning Content” page. [Courses]

  • Copy Event Types: Event Types are now copiable, similarly to what we already have for events. [Event Types]

  • Increase profile photo size on mentorship pages: Avatars in mentorship cards have now been increased to 72px. [Mentorship]

  • Simpler layout for articles without a cover: Cover-less articles now benefit from a new simplified layout instead of showing a default cover image. [Articles]

  • Update Mentorship Keyword Search: When looking for mentors in the Mentorship page, the fields: name, title, department, location, tags and bio are now searchable. [Mentorship]

  • Session Recurrence ⇒ Make Multiple Copies of Session: We’ve moved session recurrence into the “Make Multiple Copies of Session” option, which lives in the kebab menu on Coaching & Mentorship session cards. Now users should be able to make copies of a certain session after it’s been created and the start date for that copy is now tweakable. Please note that for 1:1 sessions, enrollments will be copied over, while for multiple attendee sessions no enrollments will be copied. Please see Making Multiple Copies to learn more. [Sessions]

  • Event Recurrence ⇒ Make Multiple Copies of Event: We’ve moved event recurrence into the “Make Multiple Copies of Event” option, which lives in the edit menu on the event’s detail page. Now users should be able to make copies of a certain event after it’s been created and the start date for that copy is now tweakable. Please note that making multiple copies is only available for events with a single timeslot and enrollments are not copied over. Please see Making Multiple Copies to learn more. [Events]

Bug Fixes

  • Articles that are part of tracks do not show on the Unified Catalog: A filter that determined whether standalone articles should show up in the Unified Catalog has now been fixed and standalone articles that are part of tracks will show up in the standalone articles section. [Articles]

  • Bulk enrollment doesn't work on the first attempt: Fixed bug which prevented users from being enrolled through the “Add Attendees” button in the events roster. [Events]

  • "This video is hidden" checkbox not working as intended on the Video Edit form: Fixed bug that prevented videos from being marked as hidden. [Videos]

  • Courses with Error status are showing up: Fixed bug that made courses with error statuses show up in the Unified Catalog. [Courses]

  • Event Type tags not showing in edit page: Fixed bug that prevented already added tags from showing up in the Event Type’s edit form. [Event Type]


Light-weight editing of existing surveys [New Feature] [Platform]: Admins will be able to perform a few light-weight editions to existing surveys. Within the range of available edition options are: title; description; questions; requirement status; addition and deletion of single/multiple-choice options; and reordering of both questions and single/multiple-choice options.

Revamped Tracks UI [Improvement] [Tracks]: Maintainers will soon be able to include content from the Catalog in their track, including articles, videos, event types, and courses so that they can build richer blended experiences. They will be able to describe their tracks so that their audience knows what each of my tracks is about. We're building an intuitive creation/editing experience, easy, and consistent with other contents so that they are encouraged to expand their use of tracks on the platform. End-users will also have an improved experience consuming these tracks. Talk to your PlusPlus Customer Success Manager, if you're interested in viewing a demo. More is coming soon!
