Shared by Sonia β€’ April 17, 2024

At Skilljar we believe innovation never stops. Below is a round-up since March of the feature releases and improvements we've made to make Skilljar better for you!

πŸ” Go Behind the Dashboard with Skilljar: Skilljar is always working behind the scenes to ensure your Academy is best-in-class. Check out our latest SCORM analytics enhancement, Group API update, and more. Little things can go a long way to improve your experience.

βž• New Salesforce Integration Settings: There are two new options on the Salesforce Integration page within the Skilljar dashboard! The first allows users to control what happens with a Linked Contact when there’s no match in Salesforce, and the second is the ability to enable or disable High Volume APIs, which could reduce API calls to Salesforce by more than 50%.

βž• Group Level Discount: Admins now have the ability to set specific percent discounts for different groups for all purchasable objects, enhancing flexibility and customization in pricing strategies. This also allows for both group discounts and promo codes, applying them sequentially for additional savings.

βž• Content Creation and Group Level Discount API Endpoints: Skilljar has made it possible to create courses and content without the need to log into the dashboard. For users utilizing Skilljar's API or 3rd-Party Content Management Systems, you'll be able to:

  • Create and structure Courses, Lessons, and Lesson Content Items via API
  • Assign Web Packages, Videos, and Quizzes to a Lesson via API

We've also introduced an API endpoint for managing group-level discounts, enabling automation and scalability in discount management.

At Skilljar we believe it’s the little things that count. Below is a round-up from January and February of the everyday improvements and fixes we’re making to keep our platform running smoothly for you!

πŸ› Search Optimization: We've resolved an issue where lesson sections were mistakenly included in catalog searches. Now, you'll find your searches yield more relevant results, as lesson sections are no longer indexed.

πŸ› Analytics Accuracy: Fixed a glitch affecting Course Completion metrics for filtered groups on our Analytics Overview page. Metrics now update correctly for groups, ensuring accurate reporting.

βž• SCORM Analytics Enhancement: We now have a Date filter on SCORM Analytics to streamline your data review! By default, this page now filters to show the last 30 days, improving loading times for large datasets. All-time data is still available for those needing a broader view.

βž• Scale Group Management with an Update to the Group API: When managing your Skilljar groups using our Group APIs, you can now associate your group categories with your Skilljar groups. Learn more about group categories here.

Stay tuned next month for more updates on improvements & fixes. If you ever spot a bug or improvement needed feel free to email support@skilljar.com .
