Article Summary

Learning Plan Assignment Email

We've added a new Learning Plan Assignment email template. This email is sent to a user when they are automatically assigned a learning plan, or assigned a learning plan by another user.

To support this new email template, we've also added a new learning plan setting to control whether the email is sent, and variables for learning plans

External Course Submissions

We've added the ability for learners to self-report training that they've taken outside of SmarterU. When the account's External Course Submission setting is enabled, you'll be able to add a dashboard set page that learners can use to provide the details for the course, including the course's name, dates, and length (in hours and minutes).

External Course Submission form

The feature has options for specifying the group where the enrollment occurs, controlling the allowable date range, and collecting additional information. If your account uses the Points and Rewards feature, you can specify the point tracker that learners will earn points toward along with how the points are awarded

Account External Course Submission settings

In order to support this feature, we've updated numerous dashboards so that the enrollment summaries include external course submissions. We've also updated the Enrollment Report to allow for filtering on external courses.  

Refer to our Adding an External Course Submission page for information on configuring your account to allow for external course submissions. 

Batch Confirmation of Actions

We've added an Action Approval workscreen that enables you to confirm multiple actions at once.

Updated Integrity Advocate Integration

We've updated our Integrity Advocate video proctoring integration. With this update, Integrity Advocate will email a learner if the proctoring failed. 

Accounts that were using the Integrity Advocate video proctoring service prior to this release will need to update their account's proctoring service with an updated application ID and API key.
