Unicorn LMS 6.5 Release Notes

Our Unicorn LMS 6.5 includes further enhancements to our Sliding Banners and CPD.

Tailored Sliding Banners 
You can now tailor messages to different audiences on your home page. Create custom sliding banners and target specific groups of users.




How does it work?
Sliding Banner options are located within 'Site Settings'. Navigate to the second tab labelled 'Sliding Banner' and then click the padlock icon next to each banner to control who can see it. You can now disable individual banners whilst you are creating them too with the on/off button.

How do I get it?
This feature is available to Super Administrator users with access to 'Site Settings'.


CPD Enhancements
We have added the following features for CPD:

You can now treat Offline Activities as "Shared CPD" records enabling users to enter CPD details such as development need and reflective statement at the time of self-registering.

We have added optional CPD scheme functionality to enable users to submit their CPD creating a read-only snapshot for the year. This snapshot can be emailed as a PDF to the user and predefined email accounts.



How does it work?
This functionality is configured as part of a CPD scheme.

How do I get it?
The offline activity functionality is immediately available to users and administrators.

CPD scheme configuration is currently something undertaken by Unicorn. If you can benefit from this functionality please discuss with your Unicorn relationship manager.


When will I get 6.5?
All customers are being upgraded to 6.5 automatically over the next 4 weeks.
