More pre-filled fields for the admin users and an error-free flow for resending the invites for a Private Course
uQualio — more pre-filled fields for the admin users and an error-free flow for resending the invites for a Private Course
Highlights of the release
- uQualio brings new features to make creating and publishing Courses as simple and fast as it can be.
We generate automatically four standard Badges so that the admin users can concentrate on creating the Course content. We also pre-fill the name of the User Group Name - now publishing Courses at uQualio became even easier.
- Publishing Private Courses requires sending and sometimes resending the invites — we made sure that this process is error-free by notifying the admin if any new users were added.
- Subscription in Account Settings now has the field Primary Contact, used for billing — to make sure that the invoices come to the right email address.
Main features in uQualio release from October 29, 2018:
Better design for the achieved Badge
We improved the Badge design that the users see after they finish the Test. The more elaborate design of the Badge creates a better feeling for the user looking at their achievement.
We also remind the user that they don’t need to stress and can Retake Test or Train Again.
When the invite message is resent, the admin can choose all or only new users
If you choose to publish a Private Course, then as a final step you send the invites to the users in your invite file (or to the users you’ve added via Add User button).
You can always add more users along the way after the Course has been published.
When you click on the Send Invites button this time, we will ask you if you want to resend the invites to the all users or to new users only.
Also, if you wish to resend the invites once again, without adding new users (for example as a reminder), then we tell you that no new users are added and ask you if you want to send the invites once again. By this we make sure that you don’t do accidentally an action you did not plan.
Automatically pre-filled User Group Name
We reduced one more field for the admin user to enter about when publishing a Course. Now the User Group Name is generated automatically from the Course Version Name, and to avoid confusion has its type mentioned later in the brackets - Public, Protected or Private. If you want a specific name of the User Group, you can easily edit it when you Publish.
Four standard Badges created when a new Content Draft is made
We think that our admin users have enough work taking care of the great content on the Course. To reduce the number of things they to do, we generate four standard Badges:
The names of the Badge are translated according to Content language. That’s why you need to pick the Content language when you create a new Draft.
We will ask you if you want to generate new Badges if you change the language of your Content at a later stage.
Primary Contact used for invoicing
We added a new drop-down field Account Settings – Subscription which is called Primary Contact. It is used as the email address for billing. It is automatically preset to the email which was used to open the Admin Account at uQualio.
The Primary Contact can be changed. The drop-down shows the list of the available emails, which all should be already registered uQualio users. If the necessary email is not there, then it must be added in Account Settings - Admins.
Move the Copy button to the list of Content Drafts
We moved the Copy button from inside the Content Draft to the list of Drafts. This makes it easier for users who want to copy the Draft after it’s been created.

uQualio — improvements for achieved Badges and for payment
Highlights of the release
- uQualio brings new features to make the achievement of a Badge after taking a Test a more rewarding experience. The Badge's improved design makes it more desirable to keep and share with others.
- All new users will receive a short guiding messages on how to use the system to their User Notifications. Also the first achieved Badge is also bringing a congratulating message with a short instruction.
- Admin users can enjoy the benefits of a number of small improvements to the Create Content part of the system, as well as an easy payment process.
Main features in uQualio release from November 13, 2018:
New users have a welcome notification on their page when they access the page for the first time
We try our best to make it easy to take the bite-size courses. As a part of this journey we send a new user a welcome message with short description and links of how to use the system.
Mobile login: keyboard includes @ symbol
Signing In on mobile has become a little easier for the user – now the mobile keyboard includes the @ symbol right away.
An anonymous user can keep the Badge when signing up afterwards
An anonymous user who accessed a Public Course, took a Test and achieved a Badge can easily add their name to the Badge and save it for the sharing purposes later, together with a short instruction on how to share the Badge. All you need to do is to Sign Up!
Minified Badge images are rectangular now
The small Badge images that can be seen on the Course page or in the list of achieved Badges at User Profile now are displayed as rectangular. We listened to the users’ feedback and it seems that the rectangular shape is more flexible in showing what is on the image than a circle.
Add to all "share on social media" elements description of what is being shared
Sometimes when the page has many elements, it can be confusing which part the “share on social media” is referring to. That’s why we specify each time what it is exactly that is being shared.
User Settings - link removed from below the user picture box
To avoid duplication, we removed the link to the User Settings from under the box with the user picture. User Settings can be accessed now from one place – by clicking on the User Picture in the top navigation bar.
Default frame for the achieved Badge
If the achieved Badge is not one of the four automatically generated frames (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze), then it is displayed in a neutrally-colored frame.
Course Description can be found now as a section under the videos
To improve navigation in the Course, we moved Course Description to lie below the videos.
Buttons under the video made bigger on mobile
A small thing that bring a big user experience improvement: buttons related to video navigation are made bigger on mobile so that they are easier to tap with a finger.
Logo on Site Public Page has a white background
Based on user feedback, we replace the transparent background for the Logo image on Site Public Page to be a non-transparent white background.
Share Profile: text depends if you share your own profile or another user’s
You can safely share someone else’s or your own uQualio profile: the text will be adjusted accordingly.
"Add video name" moved
We made some changes to adding video links – now the video name should be entered before the video is added. If you want to add the video teaser, you will have to click on the video after it was added.
Payment process made easy – if you want to start, upgrade or downgrade your Subscription.
Show Help option in the Question editor: "from"/"to" changed to "from"/duration” in seconds"
Based on user feedback, we changed the setting time for the Help in Practice to “from”/duration in seconds”. That means you can write the start of the Help in the “from” field and then write for how many seconds the video should play in the “duration in seconds” field.
Video topic: not possible to opt out of “include video in Practice”
With uQualio you can publish videos with or without Practice/Test questions.
Questions are added to the video, and you cannot publish questions out of the video context.
We made the change because we see uQualio primarily as a video learning platform, and not only an assessment/testing platform.
To be consistent, we removed the check-box “include in Practice” from the video settings. That means that the Course must include at least one video, and then optionally some Practice/Test questions.
You can opt to include the video in the Test as well, that’s why we left the check-box to “include the video in Test”.
Achievement page: change the font size of the Badge depending on number of characters
We improved the design for the achieved Badge and it makes sense that the Badge name should have a reasonable length to fit nicely in the Badge.
We have made tests and come up with maximum number of characters allowed for the Badge name to be 30.
We have added some coding that will adjust the size and the location of the name in the Badge depending if it is 15 characters long or all 30. This way it always looks nice.
Added SMS balance amount to the Usage tab in Account Settings
It is important to keep track of the SMS usage, that’s why we added this information to the Usage tab in Account Settings. The balance shows opening balance for the period, postings and a closing balance in EUR. Please mind that you will normally need to refresh the page to see the latest info.
