Each widget comes with downloadable reports, providing admins with valuable analytic data.

Please note that all existing analytics pages and reports are still available. This page is an addition to existing reports.

Examining the number of started courses year to date.

These new widgets allow the admin to track the total number of courses started, courses enrolled in, content views, content comments, and CE credits earned, categorized by respective courses or credits. These enhancements offer valuable insights for better decision-making and understanding of learner behavior.

 The Basic Analytics page is a new page that was announced in the 2.8 release notes with updates released as recently as


Back-end work PLATFORM

  • Improved backend API efficiency by transitioning the GET Threads endpoints to return full user objects instead of user IDs, reducing frontend API calls and optimizing Thread dialogue display.

  • Implemented API support for creating, managing, and retrieving community groups with specified constraints on input fields, supported file types, and size limits, ensuring data integrity and consistency while utilizing TinyMCE editor for content and enabling deletion of groups by slug.

  • Implemented Price Level and Access Level Tag synchronization from vNow to vNext, ensuring separate management of Price Levels from other tags in vNext and enabling modifications to reflect corresponding changes between both systems.
