Release 13 - Restricted Catalogues

11 Aug 2021

What's new:

  • Adding the functionality for administrators to create, add, assign and manage user groups which are required for restricted catalogues.
  • Adding the required new tabs to the catalogue administration pages for user group, settings and owner.
  • Adding visuals to the catalogue landing page to show users who don't have access to the restricted catalogue, that they’re not able to access it.
  • When a user requests access to a restricted catalogue, an email is sent from the Learning Hub team to all administrators of that restricted catalogue.
  • When restricted catalogues are shown in the search results and the user searching doesn't have access to them, they are highlighted with a flag.
  • When a user is viewing the information page for a resource within a restricted catalogue that they do not have access to, the resource is highlighted with a flag.
  • Restricted catalogues and resources belonging to a restricted catalogue that a user does not have access to and are displayed on their dashboard, they are now highlighted with a flag.
  • When administrators receive the request notification or email to action a user's request for access to a restricted catalogue, they have a link to take them to an approve/reject screen to action the request.
  • Addition of functionality and screens to allow administrators to manage requests for access to restricted catalogues.

Bug fixes:

  • .Emails sent from the Learning Hub team regarding the catalogues did contain some inaccurate links. These have been updated to point to the correct pages.
  • On the edit page for a user group, the catalogue tab was displaying even when there were no catalogues associated with the user group. Now the tab is only shown if there is at least one catalogue associated with the user group.
  • When viewing the catalogue administration screens for a catalogue that has no resources, the resource tab was showing the search and sort fields. These have been replaced with a message to show that there are no resources.
  • When an administrator changes a catalogue to a restricted catalogue and has not assigned it to a user group, a message now appears to advise them that a user group needs to be assigned.
  • Colour change of a confirmation button on the administrator confirmation for removing a user from a catalogue.
  • When an administrator is rejecting a request for access to a restricted catalogue from a user who has requested access, but been rejected before, the rejection form is now populated with the previous rejection details.
  • Some resources in a restricted catalogue were not being displayed correctly.
  • The drop down menu for catalogue administrators on restricted catalogues was not displaying correctly, this has now been resolved.
  • In the mobile view for catalogue administrators, search results for users were not being displayed correctly.  This has been fixed.
  • Main catalogue pages for both users and administrators were not displaying correctly with the existing Learning Hub headers and footers when viewed in Internet Explorer 11; this has now been resolved.
  • Administrators could not add users to restricted catalogues nor add or manage resources from the front end, these have both been resolved.
  • Pagination has been added to the listing of user's account history as when there was a large amount of history these pages were taking some time to load.

Background fixes:

  • For this to work, the Learning Hub needed a separate email generation and management system. This has now been created and implemented.
  • The back end of catalogues and contributions needed to be changed to use user groups now that they have been implemented.
  • User groups that were already in the elfh hub needed to be copied into the Learning Hub with regular synchronisation between the two systems. This has now been completed.  
  • Some backend database issues were found when the release was fully tested. These have been rectified.

Release 12.4 - Text editor fixes

12 Jul 2021

Bug fixes:

  • A character count has been added to the text editor for text fields such as titles and descriptions. This will show you how many characters you've used so far and how many you have left.
  • We've resolved a problem where resource descriptions that exceeded the allowed number of characters were being accepted but not saved.

Background fixes:

  • A security update has been applied to the text editor for text fields.

30 Jun 2021

25 Mar 2021

What's new:

  • A new feature can be accessed via the menu at the top of the page when signed in. The ‘My learning’ area displays a list of a user’s learning activity on the Learning Hub, showing the resources they have started and completed. Users can search and view their activity, filter by time period, completion status and resource type. They can also generate a report of their activity, with or without any of these filters applied.
  • We've changed the cookie banner to ask for a user’s acceptance to use optional cookies and the cookie policy page has also been updated.
  • The home page has been updated. It now shows two dynamic trays for resources and catalogues. The resources tray shows the top ten most accessed, recently added and highly rated resources. The catalogue tray shows the top ten most accessed and recently added catalogues as well as those with the most resources in them.
