Feature Spotlight

Assignments Dashboard [New Feature] [Platform]: Assignments are now available for admins through the Assignments Dashboard. Admins are able to see all content assignments in just one place. They may also filter by content, content type, assignee, categories & tags, period of creation or completion status. On top of that, the dashboard also supports CSV exports.

Bulk Import/Export Event Types [New Feature] [Data Exports]: Bulk import/export of event types is now available to organizers. We hope to reduce the burden of dealing with manual data copying, one at a time. The new functionality is available through the Event Type Dashboard. Please note that importing is an add-only operation, so no updates or deletions are supported. To learn more and get a template file, check the "How to bulk import Event Types" HC article.

Automatic tracking of video completion [Videos]: Video assignments may now be completed just by watching! Content creators can set this up in the video edit form and choose what is the minimum percentage for a video to be considered complete, as well as toggle this feature on or off for that certain video.

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 soon. If you have any concerns/suggestions, please reach out to your admin or your PlusPlus Customer Success Manager.

Minor Improvements

  • Improved users profile UI [Improvement] [Platform]: A user's manager info is now highlighted on the user profile, and hovering the info shows a popover with a mini-profile.

  • Inherited surveys relationships on bulk event Import: Survey relationships are now inherited when bulk creating events based on event types. Please note that existing survey relationships will never be overridden in an edition. [Platform] [Event Types] [Events]
