A round-up of all improvements and changes to Dawn in version v2021.0407.171120 available on April 8, 2021.
Coming soon to Dawn: Zapier integration
Dawn is about to get whole lot more powerful with our new Zapier integration. Zapier allows you to connect your apps (over 3,000 currently supported) to automate repetitive tasks without coding, so you can focus on other things.
New Time-based cohorts!
Time-based cohorts are enrollment groups where members are allowed to access a catalog entry only after a specified date and time. Administrators and Authors can create and manage them just as they do with Groups. Newsletters using relative release dates will be automatically updated to follow the Time-based cohort enrollment dates for each cohort.
Authors can enable self-enrollment in Time-based cohorts, so learners can enroll in the catalog entry and choose the Time-based cohort they want to be a part of.
As part of this update, authors can also choose to enable/disable self-enrollment on any catalog entry. This allows them to publish courses, so they appear on the catalog before they're ready to allow enrollment.
Other updates: Improved account creation and invite email workflow
In this release, we also:
- Improved our account creation and invite email layouts and workflow, so that users are always directed to where they need to go, whether creating a new account, logging into an existing account, or enrolling in a catalog entry!
- Fixed an issue where the Video overlay "continue video" action wouldn't work without a text cue.
