Unicorn LMS SkillsServe 6.4 Release Notes

Our Unicorn LMS 6.4 includes some great enhancements to our eCommerce and CPD systems and a new organisation logo feature.

eCommerce Additions
We now have integrated refund capability for WorldPay Select Junior Credit Card payments and GoCardless Direct Debit payments.

We have also added a new integration for the WorldPay Online Payment API.

Activities pending payment can be used as criteria for registration rules

Discount vouchers can now limit the number of times vouchers can be used and to set a limit on how much money can be discounted by a single voucher across multiple payments.

Event programmes now support payments in addition to individual events.



How does it work?
These enhancements are easy to get to grips with by simply making use of them from within the finance system within the LMS.

With the pending payment status being usable as criteria for registration rules, this means you can automatically assign users into other activities whilst waiting for payments to clear.


How do I get it?
These are automatically available to clients who have eCommerce enabled on their platform. If you want to benefit from eCommerce in your LMS, your Relationship Manager will be happy to discuss this with you.


CPD Enhancements
Users can see more clearly which activities have attachments when reviewing their CPD Log. It is now possible for users to add their own attachments as supporting evidence for other activities such as events and offline activities.

We've added a number of additional configurable CPD scheme options to provide greater control over CPD fields, limit to only system activities and have greater control how CPD is submitted.

We've added a new optional CPD Log layout to show scheme target, category requirements and amount outstanding.

Finally we've enabled visibility of CPD Syncing within the CPD log for users who have this enabled.




How does it work?
There is now an attachment icon in the CPD log to display which activities have user attachments. When clicking any completed activity there is also now the option to add attachments.

The additional CPD scheme options and layout are in the CPD settings area that we currently manage.

The CPD syncing settings display in the CPD log below the categories.

How do I get it?
The files attachments will be automatically available to any CPD users that can already upload attachments.

The CPD scheme configuration options are available on request.

The CPD syncing area will automatically appear in the CPD log for sites that have it enabled.


Organisation Logo
Super Administrators can now add a company logo for organisations on their LMS.





How does it work?
Go to 'Organisation and Users’ and select an organisation. When selected, navigate to ‘Settings & Configuration’ displayed in the side navigational menu. Proceed to the section labelled ‘Organisation Logo’. Simply upload the image and it will immediately be displayed next to the main site logo. To discard the logo, click 'delete’ and the logo will be removed immediately.

How do I get it?
This is standard functionality available to all Super Administrators with access to ‘Organisation and Users’ settings.

When will I get 6.4?
All customers are being upgraded to 6.4 automatically over the next 4 weeks.
