    Preview Re-designed My Training Dashboard 

    In this release we are enabling a preview of the redesigned My Training Dashboard. Organizations will be able to give selected users an opportunity to try out the new experience early on and provide feedback to the LMS365 team. The preview will also allow organizations to start preparing for the shift to the new look in the future. Following this release we will continue to improve the redesigned My Training Dashboard, until it becomes generally available and the current dashboard is deprecated.

    • New Global LMS365 Configuration option to enable Preview of “New Look” for My Training Dashboard for specific users in the organization
    • A “New Look” for My Training Dashboard that includes a more modern look & feel as well as a number of improvements related to navigation and overview
    • The “New Look” is in Preview and do not yet have all planned features available.
    • Users whom your organization select to take part of Preview, can switch back and forth between “New Look” and “Classic Look” as needed themselves

    Limit Access to Full Learner Details

    LMS365 recognizes the need for some organizations to apply restrictions to detailed data about the individual Learner’s performance with a new feature to disable “Full Access to Learner Details” for Course Administrators and/or Line Managers.

    • New Global LMS365 Configuration option to disable showing certain details about the Learners’ training activities to Learner’s Line Manager in Line Manager Dashboard
    • New Global LMS365 Configuration option to disable showing certain details about the Learners’ training activities to Course Administrators in Course Progress and Reporting from Course Administration

    Improved Accessibility for Course & Training Plan Pages

    To improve the experience for all learners, compliance with current Accessibility Guidelines is key. With this release we ensure better accessibility for Course and Training Plan home pages with e.g. support for use of screen readers.
