Reports Menu for Employer Manager (EM) & Employer Overview EO Roles (live)

We have completed a development to add a new Reports tab to the Employer Manager and Employer Overview roles. When selected will launch a reports page with Client Reports tab visible.

New Progress Report for Employers (in development status)

We are currently developing an “Employee Learner Progress” for Employer Manager and Employer Overview Roles.

Features will allow Employers to:

  • Filter on a specific Assessor’s learners
  • Filter on a course
  • Filter by Episode (If episodes development is on in your site)
  • The data grid is also searchable
  • Export to Excel feature will export just on filtered data or can export all data

The Report will display Episode/Course progress, off the job data and gateway progression data.

Once development is completed it will be passed to our testing team and we are expecting this to be live very soon. Further updates will follow.

Unlinking Evidence from a signed off unit:

We have released work complete to support defects that were raised around the ability to link/unlink evidence or grouped evidence folder from a signed off unit.

We have applied the change, so once the unit is signed off by the assessor and an attempt is made to remove the evidence from the unit in the evidence library a message will display, informing you that you that the unit needs to be unsigned before further the evidence can be linked or unlinked.

Further development updates coming soon.

Smart Assessor Accessibility Update

The Government introduced new Accessibility requirements in September 2018. We need to be meeting greater standards of accessibility by September this year for all Smart Assessor users.

We have been addressing this, by putting together accessibility training for our Quality Assurance Team and addressing our coding standards and practices.

We are always looking at ways to make our software more usable and with this deadline in sight we will keep you updated as to what our team are working on to ensure compliance.
