Releasing Enhanced "Portals" for B2B

Releasing Enhanced "Portals" for B2B cover image

This is a Big Release after months of work by our team. We have now enhanced our previous B2B "Group" functionality and renamed it to "Portals". Portals allow you to onboard an entire organization in bulk where their management can manage the training for their team/employees independently under their own branding. This enhancement now allows customers to setup Sub-Portals within a Portal to further segregate their learners. This allows you to do various things like Onboard a large Organization with subsidiaries, perform external customer training in bulk, do internal employee training by departments and many more.

Below is a list of all major items that are released:

  • Portals: An upgraded B2B solution that is now replacing older Groups functionality.
  • Learning Paths v2. A new upgraded version of Learning Paths to offer entire Curriculum of Courses as a collection and/or Program.
  • Quickbooks Integration. Sync eCommerce Orders and Invoices with your Quickbooks Account
  • SCORM Authoring: a brand-new tool that will allow you to design, build, and export SCORM files. Released as sister product named "Trainably".

Other improvements & fixes included in this release:

  • Ability to issue Refunds directly from the platform for Stripe, Braintree and Authorize.NET payment gateways
  • Smaller Bug Fixes
