Datafisher LMS improvements, upgrades and new features in User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX)  


Datafisher LMS performance, functionality and design have improved during Q4 2023. The release consists of the following features and improvements:


1. Questionnaire before training/event:

A new feature of adding a pre-quiz before trainings or events. By adding a pre-quiz before training, users need to complete it before taking the training. By adding a pre-quiz to an event, users will have to complete it before they can enrol to the event.

Pre-quizzes are mandatory to take, and their results can be found in the admin panel.

  • First, create the desired quiz under the “Quizzes” tab. Give it a name that indicates what this quiz is about, and define the questions and answer types.
  • Go to the training/event whom you want to add the pre-quiz to, and under “Additional options” -> “Pre-quiz”, select the quiz by its name.

If needed, a pre-approval by manager can be set for pre-quizzes. When pre-approval by manager is on, the user’s manager need to approve the pre-quiz before the user can take the training or enrol to the event. The manager can approve and view the pre-quiz results from the manager view.


2. Preview content in the admin panel:

As an admin, you can now easily preview content in the admin panel. Preview the uploaded content by clicking on the preview package icon. The preview package icon can be found under “Content & material” -> “Content” -> “Actions”.

It is possible to preview both active and inactive packages.
