Feature Spotlight

Blended Catalog

We’ve released a new version of our catalog which enables users to discover all types of content all in one place. Rather than divide various content types into unique sections, we’re now taking full advantage of our new advanced filters and blending the entire catalog together. Users still have the ability to segment content by type if needed, but the new blended catalog makes the default experience for browsing content easier than ever.

New Filter Type: Relevance

We’ve added an AI-powered “Relevance” filter to the catalog to enhance the way users discover content within the platform. PlusPlus can now recommend content based on users’ profiles, preferences, and behavior! Now the default sorting option for the catalog, “relevance” works by learning about what users like and want to learn about, providing customized value to each learner.

Minor Improvements

Last Engagement Date column and sorting on Dashboards

We’ve added a new column to our content dashboards to indicate the last engagement date for content items, which can also be used as a filter. This feature will enable Program Managers to more easily identify and archive outdated content.

Updated Track Progress and view Track Item Progress by Assignee

We’ve improved how Maintainers can view each Track progress. It is now possible to view the individual track item progress from a single assignee by clicking in the progress bar of their Track assignment.

In addition to that, the Track Progress dialog was also updated and each progress bar links to the Assignment Roster of the respective track item, filtering by the Parent Track.

This update also extends to Scheduled Tracks. Attendance Rosters and the Enrollments Dashboard also got the possibility of being filtered by their Parent Scheduled Track.

Bug Fixes

  • We fixed a bug that caused some hidden tracks to not show up for authorized users.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the dashboard page to crash when the page was reloaded with a date range filter filled.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from being re-enrolled to events if the attendance method was switched.

  • Implemented a patch that auto-promotes the ownership of automated rules in case the original owner is deleted. Order:

    • Deprovisioned user's manager

    • Deprovisioned user's manager's manager

    • Oldest admin in the platform

  • Reassigning users to a track now also reassigns them to its track items.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from being removed from tracks.

  • Fixed a bug that would duplicate CSV lines for content when there were multiple facilitators or parent tracks.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented power users from removing members of large groups.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the office hours capacity field from cascading down to sessions.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented resources from being added to a track.

  • Fixed the cancel/restore functionality in the events dashboard.

  • Fixed a bug in the Dashboard filters UI which caused some of them to have inconsistent white backgrounds and a misalignment with the Choose a Filter select box.
