LMS Roadmap: Unlimited user search to benefit LMS users

11/22/2016 - Posted by Staff Writer

Greetings, everyone. This is another post from Tom Merritt, product manager for LatitudeLearning. This month we’ve continued our roadshow meetings, and we’re hearing more and more about an updated UI/UX, so we’ll be looking at that over the next couple of quarters. One new area of functionality that you will appreciate is our new unlimited user search. Using this tool, we’ve worked through the issues of working with more than just a couple hundred users at a time. Now, with unlimited user search, you will be able to search through literally thousands of user results and you will have control over how many will be displayed on a page, so you can configure how your search results should appear.

These relationships also enable managers to view training, approve course enrollments and set and manage user goals in the same way they can with for Position Code Reporting.

Franchise Training Fitness: it's Crunch time

10/11/2016 - Posted by Meredith Kay

Very few of us enjoy working out. We will come up with any number of excuses to avoid it, and then just complain, because we aren’t where we would like to be with our fitness goals.
