A stunning result 🤩 of our sleepless November nights | AcademyOcean 2020 update
Nice to meet you, guys, in our monthly!
November was a real challenge for us, but we made every effort to fulfill our plans. Our development team hasn't slept for several nights, creating something incredibly awesome.
Let's see what we got 😍
Watermarks for PDFs
*available for Premium plan users
✔️ Watermarks for PDFs in the Academy
The premium plan users now have the ability to add watermarks to all PDF files regardless of the use – to be downloaded by the learner or to be previewed in the lesson.
✔️ Watermarks text customization
We have added a possibility to amend the watermark text reflected on the PDF file.
✔️ Variables for custom watermarks
Added a selection of variables to be added to watermark text (name, email address, date, etc.), so you will get all needed data in the document. This greatly reduces the possibility of your data being leaked.
Watermark settings are unique for each academy so you can translate it to any language needed with this functionality.
Developing the Custom Admin role feature has been a major priority for our team, and we spent a few white nights creating a high-quality solution.
We had to recast about 80% of the product, but as a result, we created a unique feature. The admin, publishing a new course, will be able to go through the full learner path: pass the course, quiz and get a certificate. It will maximize the learner's experience and help create fascinating courses. In addition, he has advanced features of admin.
The user is entering the Academy through the assigned subdomain (same as a learner) to secure your solution's white labeling.
You can invite Learner-Admin to the Academy through the Manage Learners section.
Here are the major abilities of the role:
1. Create and edit lessons, using all kinds of content and formatting;
2. Create and manage quizzes according to their needs;
3. Work with variables and create dynamic content within courses;
4. Create, edit and configure courses;
5. Add new learners and manages access requests to the Academy;
6. Create teams for learners and assign courses, as well as manage access;
7. View stats for all the learners, courses, quizzes and top learners, breaking it down into any time frame.
