Please note, that the “New Look” for My Training Dashboard will be generally enabled and the default look for all tenants – and as such for all users of LMS365 – with the later November 2020 release.

If needed, the individual user will still be able to switch back and forth between “New Look” and “Classic Look”. This switching option will be available during a transition period, until the “Classic Look” is eventually removed from LMS365 at a later time. 

We encourage all LMS365 clients who have not yet done so, to enable “Preview New Look” for My Training Dashboard following the September release, to allow selected users to begin to explore and get used to the new dashboard.

The Learner Transcript section in My Training Dashboard will be improved with the “New Look”, and at the same time we will align the Transcript experience across the product – to ensure that My Training Dashboard, Learner List, and Line Manager’s Dashboard present information in a similar manner. For the PDF versions, learner’s organizational information will be added.
