Groups are the new Awards

A seamless onboarding experience is critical at any organisation, given the direct impact this has on employee retention rates. We’re improving the way Groups works, so its easier than ever to streamline your onboarding workflow.

We’re investing in Groups feature; this means instead of delivering learning resources within an Award structure and assigning that Award to Learners, (or an Award to Learners via a Group!), we recommend creating a group to deliver programs of learning. Here’s why:

  • Streamline onboarding
    You will soon be able to automate which learners are added to groups as part of onboarding, based on the additional fields against their profiles. This could be based on region, department, or any other value you have added. No more manual process each time new people join.

  • Set and forget your learning programs with recurring assignment in Groups
    By adopting Groups as the primary way to deliver multiple pieces of learning to your teams, you will soon be able to take full advantage of recurring auto-assignment, available on courses soon.

  • What about Awards?
    Don’t worry – Awards aren’t going anywhere. Since improvements to Groups are iterative, there’s time to make the transition when you’re ready to deliver your next learning program to your teams.

New releases

  • Bulk-add users to Groups within the Platform, with no more pesky .csv uploads Save a lot of precious time by simplifying your onboarding and offboarding workflow when people join or leave your organization. Learn how to bulk-add users here.

  • Select multiple groups when assigning learning

    Save time and assign learning to multiple groups more effectively by selecting multiple Groups from when you assign a piece of learning content, across the Platform.

  • Ensure new employees are completing training in the right timeframes when they join by applying relative due dates
    Relative due dates allow a Learner to complete their training within a specified timeframe, as opposed to a set date. This is especially important functionality to support the ongoing workflow of adding new employee cohorts to Groups when they join an organization.

  • Simpler reporting: Filter by Group from the Manage page of any resource
    Track completion status against learning assigned to a Group within Manage page against every piece of content, in one simple click.

  • Protect user privacy
    Email addresses are no longer visible in Groups to Learners, in order to maintain an individual’s privacy. Admins and Content Admins can still view email addresses in Groups.

  • Ensure completion of assigned learning

    Learners can’t opt out of Groups where there’s assigned learning, when a group has been selected as ‘Restricted’.
