NEW: Personal Note Block for LearningStone course timelines

Did you ever want to add a personal message to a LearningStone course timeline? A message that can only be seen by one specific participant? Maybe a link to an external location, a personal video or just a short message? Though there are lots of personal messaging possiblities, this new block adds an extra personalisation option.

The personal note!

Why this new block?

As with most of our improvements or new functions, this was a feature request from a user. (Thank you Ranger Human Capital!). For a training, it was necessary to add personal links to the learning material. Though Docs – the online storage in LearningStone – makes it’s possible to share individualized learning material and messages can be sent to invidividuals, it made sense to add a more direct possiblity to the course timelines. And so we did. It’s available for everyone as of today!

A new interface!

With the arrival of this new type of block, our list of blocks became a bit long and cluttered. We decided to redesign the interface to choose blocks. We'd love to hear what you think of it!

How to use the Personal note block?

  • Open the course timeline editor and add a “Personal Note” block, for example at the top.
  • You can add an introduction that will be seen by all members but this is optional.
  • Save and view the course timeline and click on “Progress” to open the progress report. Notice that a column has appeared with the title of the personal note block.
  • Click on the cell next to a participant and add a text, link, pictures or video. This is what this participant will see.
