Smart VLE release notes 2019

Smart VLE – Client updates

4th March 2019

Our developers have been working very hard and we have some exciting new developments that are now live on Smart VLE. Please familiarise yourself with these updates.

General Appearance

The overall appearance of Smart VLE has been updated, you will notice that when you hover over a tab, it turns pink to help you navigate the site. When you click on a tab, it will remain pink.

Some of the areas now have icons instead of words and a hint will appear when you hover over the icon.

A screenshot is shown below to give you an idea of the changes, we hope you like them.


None of the changes affect the functionality of Smart VLE.

Email templates

You can now edit any of the emails that are sent from Smart VLE.

To access the emails, log into Smart VLE as an author, click the settings button in the top right-hand corner of the screen and select “Email Templates”.


This will bring up a list of all the email templates that are available for you to personalise with a short description of when the email is triggered in Smart VLE.

If you click view against an email, you will see what the default email contains.

If you want to edit the content, click the edit option for that email. 

This will open the template for that email, the areas that you can edit are shown below.


Subject: You can change the name of the subject for the email.

Email(s): You can include any email addresses that you would like to automatically receive a copy of the email.

Body: You can amend the body of the email here, using the template merge fields for areas to be automatically completed by the system.

Template merge fields: These are available for you to use when you compose the body of your email. The logo that appears at the top of your Smart VLE page is the logo that has been saved as your company logo. The merge fields that are available for you to use will change depending on the email template that you are editing.

Disclaimer: You can change the content of the disclaimer if desired.


Once you are happy with the content of the email template, choose one of the save options to save the new template. This will now be used by Smart VLE when sending out automatic emails for your site. 


Next steps:

In the next release, we will be making changes to the reports in Smart VLE.
