First things first, we have changed the name of the platform! Headstream….becomes Learning Pool Stream (or just 'Stream' for short).
As you have seen, we are updating the product at pace, and in the coming months will put even more emphasis on the ‘Streams' of Learning Experiences. This will include how we integrate with 3rd party platforms, how we bring recommendations to life for your users and how we make 'Focus Areas' a bit more simple and intuitive as a concept.
We're also starting to increase the capability of our 'Next Generation' ecosystem, including Flo v2 (our chatbot) and a forthcoming new automation product called Waves. This change will make our next generation suite "Stream", "Waves" and "Flo".
For now, you will see little change on the platform itself. However, we will be changing over to a new URL later this year. This is a huge job which needs careful handling, so we will update you about this when we have more news.
As part of our ongoing development of Stream, we have added new functionality to include a ‘New’ stream and we are depreciating the existing ‘Skills’ functionality within the profile page.
We are also currently improving our feature request process across all Learning Pool products. We will soon release some info on how our feature request and product design process works, so that you can see how we go about identifying the core of the problem and then deciding on the best solution to solve this.
In the meantime, we have removed the feature requests form from the help centre website and you should now contact your Learning Consultant who will manage the feature request for you. Partners, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
