OCTOBER

Genie Update

  • After previewing a unit, it is now possible to restart the preview directly, or return back to editing without having to do so via the Quest listings page.
  • There’s now a clearer distinction between badges contained within specific slides and those awarded upon the completion of a Quest in its entirety.
  • Previously, when reordering content slides, the drag and drop function didn’t autoscroll, making it tricky to make changes. This has now been fixed. When a slide is ‘picked up’, other slides will move accordingly.
  • When a new Quest is created, we now include prompt text on the artboard encouraging users to create a slide. This was introduced based on user feedback that suggested content creators weren’t sure what should happen next.
  • Up until now, Genie has been embedded within too many scrollbars, resulting in a sub-optimal user experience. This has now been fixed.
  • On the Quest listings page, when ‘Export’ was selected, the labelling didn’t make it clear that ‘1.2’ and ‘2004’ relate to SCORM packages. This has now been fixed.
  • Genie pop-up boxes could be closed by clicking anywhere outside of the window. This would often result in unsaved data being lost. Now users have to select ‘close’ to collapse the pop-up.
  • Previously, when uploading assets, users would have to go back to the library to select them. This has now been fixed. Once an asset has been uploaded to a specific folder, it’s possible to insert it directly into content from there.
  • The slide management area of Genie has now been extended. This additional space makes managing slides and making alterations considerably easier.
  • Offline questions were previously an option. This was a legacy feature which was never activated. As such, it’s been removed.
  • Genie now remembers the last folder you created. As such, when you upload new assets, this folder will act as the default location.
  • The size of the windows within the question creation modal has increased, making the user experience more efficient.
  • We’ve added an edit icon to the slide management tiles that allows a user to edit a question directly from within the Quest, rather than having to navigate to it through the library.
