Unicorn LMS Banner


The SkillsServe team are pleased to announce SkillsServe 4.5, which will be available from mid-October 2013

What’s new in this version?

  1. Route Map Themes
  2. Reporting Performance Enhancements

1. Route Map Themes

Is it a new feature or an upgrade?This is an update to the content management functionality in SkillsServe related to programmes which display as route maps.
How it works…Using our design expertise, Unicorn Training can design and build attractive visual route maps for your learning journeys which are structured as programmes in SkillsServe.A route map theme can be applied to a programme on the activity details page for the programme.

A single route map theme may be applied to multiple programmes. Programmes which use route map themes will syndicate the theme between sites alongside the programme.

Why is this beneficial?This feature is beneficial for both content administrators and theme designers as multiple programmes can share a common route map theme which can be updated in one place and applied to all programmes which use them. This means content administrators have greater control over how programmes display for users by being able to select a theme for programmes displayed as route maps.
Default or configurable?Route map themes are available by default on all SkillsServe 4.5 sites. If you’re interested in having a visual route map designed for a learning journey you’ve created, please contact your account manager.

2. Reporting Performance Enhancements

Is it a new feature or an upgrade?This is an upgrade to the reporting functionality in SkillsServe.
How it works…We’ve made several system level enhancements to improve the performance of the reporting area of SkillsServe, including report previews, export functionality and scheduled email reports.

A small user interface change has been made to improve the layout of the report preview page.

Why is this beneficial?

This is beneficial to users and administrators using the reporting area due to the increased speed of generating report data.
Default or configurable?This upgrade is standard across all SkillsServe 4.5 sites.
