SkillsServe 3.5 Release Notes
1. Organisation Emails URLs
|Is it a new feature or an upgrade?||The Organisation Emails URLS project brings new functionality to the SkillsServe platform that allows administrators to specify a URL that will appear in all SkillsServe emails on a per Organisation basis.|
The project also includes an enhancement when creating a new Organisation.
|How it works…||Administrators can now specify a URL for an Organisation. This can be done at the time of creating an Organisation or in its Settings and Configurations tab afterwards. This means that every user within the Organisation will see the specified URL in the links that appear in their SkillsServe emails including:|
The URLs tab under Site Settings now includes a Name field for URLs. This Name field (and the existing URL field) can now be included in ALL SkillsServe emails. As such, every email on the SkillsServe platform will now have a default sign-off that reads:
$WebsiteName (replaced by the chosen URL name)
$WebsiteAddress (replaced by the chosen URL)
When a URL has not been set for an Organisation the $WebsiteAddress will be replaced with what has been applied in the $SelfURL configuration setting and the $WebsiteName will be replaced with the name in the title bar of the browser.
The New User Registration email has now been changed so that the default text includes a link that redirects the user to SkillsServe where they can set their own password. The site URL in the link will be of the URL set in the user’s Organisation.
One final enhancement that has been made to the platform is when creating a new Organisation in that when it is created a root Organisation Unit will be created at the same time. The root unit will be named “Default” and will be the default Organisation Unit for the Organisation.
|Why is this beneficial?||The functionality in this project is beneficial for multi-tenancy platforms where a number of Organisations share the same database via different website addresses.|
|Default or Configurable?||This is a default feature that will be available in all v3.5+ sites.|
