We are excited to announce the release of Learning Locker version 4.7.0. Loads of updates in this latest release with new features, lots of fixes and some performance improvements.
Adds new organisation settings API and removes organisation settings from user API.
If for any reason you were previously using the user API to make changes to the organisation in this latest release you will no longer be able to. We have created a new organisation settings API to replace this which is a much better place for the structure of the API.
Dashboards: Adds Curatr Starter template using Curatr visualisation templates.
In keeping with our approach to simplify the way you’re able to get answers to the questions you have around your activity data. This time we’ve added some visualisation templates for our LXP platform Curatr along with some stand-alone templates available in the visualisations tab.
Home: Allows site admins to quickly leave organisations no longer of interest from the home screen.
For any on-prem installations and open source users with multiple orgs you will know the frustration of having to navigate to each individual organisation to un-assign yourself. Well, for site admins it is now possible to do this from the home page. The same icon has been used and a single click will remove you from the organisation in question.
Redis: Adds support for Redis URL environment variable for more flexible configuration like the xapi-service.
More flexible config and consistent now with the xAPI we have added improved support for the Redis URL environment variable.
Visualisations: Uses grey icons to differentiate templates from custom visualisations.
In the interest in improving the look and feel of the new template feature, we have changed the colour of the icons for each one. This makes it easier to see the difference between the custom visualisations and the pre-built templates.
Persona Imports: Custom attribute names and layout change
As we see more and more use of the persona import functionality we realised that there were some functionality and general UX issues that needed resolving.
The first change we have made in this release allows you to edit the field names of the attributes in your CSV. This will save you time having to edit a CSV before it reaches LL and can just save the template in the UI. Ultimately this gets around the issue that the field name might not be titled the way you want it in the source database resulting in some editing of the file before the upload.
The second change is to change the view to be vertical rather than horizontal. We found that as more end-users added additional fields, the amount of scrolling meant the user experience was poor. We feel that this view improves that element significantly.
Adds copy button to dashboards and visualisations
We have now made it possible to make an exact copy of both a dashboard and an individual visualisation. We often found ourselves needing to only slightly edit a complex query to make another visualisation, so now we can just simply click to copy and edit a small part of the query rather than start from the beginning.
- Ensures that queries across the UI change when the default organisation timezone is changed.
- Removes duplicate word from visualisation tab (Thanks @frmbelz)
- Shareable Dashboard: Allows timezone to be set back to organisation default.
- Table View: Corrects order of labels.
- Users: Stops infinite error messages when user filter has "When" and user filter timezone is changed.
- Visualisations: Prevents UI errors caused by visualisations created via the API without axes values.
- Dashboard: Reset widget ids if they are not unique.
- Dashboard Templates: Ensures visualisations in widgets are visible to the creator of the dashboard.
