Content Author (CAT) – Version Control
Litmos’ own content authoring tool is extending its feature set to include version control. This new functionality gives Authors the ability to:
- View version history.
- Restore previous versions.
- Remove old versions.
The Version Control feature autosaves in 20-minute windows and distinguishes between different events in CAT including:
- Export -SCORM 1.2
By keeping track of publish and export history, Version Control creates a simple restore point that can be used if and when required.
For further details on using Version History, please refer to the Help Article.
Content Author – Assets with the same name
Content Author has been enhanced to retain copies of assets where a file with the same name is uploaded with the same name as an existing file of the same type. If an asset including an:
- Image (jpg, jpeg, gif, png, webp, svg)
- Video file (mp4, webm, ohv)
- Audio file (mp3, ogg)
- Resource file (pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, txt, rtf)
is uploaded into any CAT module and a file with the same name and type exists, each version will be saved and available to use.
Login Key Links in Emails
Recent changes in email provider security have impacted login links sent in emails to learners. These changes mean that learners using these specific email services have not been able to use login links sent from Litmos via email. Litmos has developed a new login mechanism in order to improve the experience for learners whose login links have been impacted by these changes.
Now, when a learner clicks on a login link from a Litmos email, they are directed through the new login method. During this process they may briefly see the new login method window as shown below.
(This process is very quick and so the screen may not always be visible.)
Please note: The logo displayed will match that seen on your Organization’s login screen.
Initially, this change will be rolled out to Organizations via a Feature Toggle. Clients who have reported this issue with their email provider will be enabled in the first rollout in December.
