SkillsServe 4.19 Release Notes

Unicorn LMS Banner

Overview

We’re pleased to announce SkillsServe 4.19 launched in April 2014.

What’s new in this version?

A report description now appears beneath its title

Is it a new feature or an upgrade?This is an upgrade to Reports in SkillsServe.
How it works…When viewing the list of available reports (in the Reports section via the Menu) a brief description of the report will now be displayed beneath its title (as long as a description has been created for the report. This is done either when creating a report or when editing a report, in the Details section). All users will see these descriptions for reports.

Why is this beneficial?This gives a quick overview of what a report will display and therefore help to differentiate between reports.
Default or configurable?This is a default part of SkillsServe 4.19.

Additional fields are available in Activity Registration reports

Is it a new feature or an upgrade?This is an upgrade to reports in SkillsServe.
How it works…It’s now possible to report on the maximum number of attempts that are set on an activity when using Activity Registrations as the data source for a report. You can now see the maximum amount of attempts that is permitted for an activity and also if a user has reached this maximum number or not. A Reporting Administrator can select these from the Activity section in the Field Selection step when creating or editing a report.

Why is this beneficial?These fields provide more information on activities and users’ attempts at activities.
Default or configurable?This is a default part of SkillsServe 4.19.

The Success Status field now shows ‘N/A’ instead of ‘Unknown’

Is it a new feature or an upgrade?This is an upgrade to reports in SkillsServe.
How it works…Previously, the Success Status field would show activities without an assessment or test as having a success status of ‘Unknown’. Responding to feedback that this was confusing, we have amended it so it now shows as ‘N/A’.

Why is this beneficial?A lot of activities won’t have anything to report in the Success Status field because they don’t have an assessment within them and therefore no success to measure. For instance, if the user has passed a test. ‘N/A’ is a much less confusing and indicates that there’s no success status to attach to an activity.
Default or configurable?This is a default part of SkillsServe 4.19.

Printable list of Event Attendees now includes Organisation of Users’

Is it a new feature or an upgrade?This is an upgrade to the printable list of Event attendees in SkillsServe.
How it works…The printable list of attendees that is available to Administrators when looking at Events in Content Manager now includes the Organisation that the users sit in.

Why is this beneficial?This change offers more information to Event organisers regarding attendees.
Default or configurable?This is a default part of SkillsServe 4.19. For more information on any of these features please contact your account manager or the Helpdesk at helpdesk@unicorntraining.com or on 0844 800 3316.
