Here is a summary of this LMS release.
Date/time stamps output within CSV report extracts have been split out into separate date and time columns, for easier Excel filtering. The combined date/time column has also been retained as this works well for sorting inside of Excel. This change is in response to customer feedback. The change applies to all reports.
New content uploader
A new content uploader, accessed from the Catalogue page has been introduced. In addition to providing an improved user experience for admins, this uploader is also wired up to enable content to be uploaded to the forthcoming cloud content delivery system, currently in beta test. The new uploader features a Browse button (by popular demand) in addition to supporting drag and drop file uploads. The uploader also supports Microsoft's new Edge browser, which ships with Windows 10.
New CSV user importer
The new uploader has also been applied to the user CSV uploader accessed via the Import users option of the Users page.
New replace file uploader
The new uploader has also been applied to the replace content function within the catalogue.
Due dates now default to 23:59 on the specified date
Admins can set content due dates. These are the dates by which learners need to have completed their content. Previously, the absolute deadline was set to the start of the specified date (i.e. 00:00am) on the specified date rather than the end of the specified date (i.e. at 23:59).
The default password complexity rules have been updated. Passwords must be at least eight characters long and contain a combination of upper and lowercase, numeric and special characters.
Various bug fixes.
