TMS Platform – End Support of Adobe Flash

At the end of 2020, Adobe will permanently end the life of Flash. To prepare for this, the SCORM video upload and Adobe Connect integration have been updated to remove Flash from the platform. It should be noted that Internet Explorer only has legacy Adobe Connect available; once Flash is deprecated, students using Internet Explorer will have to download the Adobe Connect Client or switch to a different browser.

TMS Enhancements and Fixes

  • Find Users – Created By Filter Added. We have added Created By and Created By (Choose) as a filter on Find Users.
  • Custom Sites – Training Key Pool. Users can now redeem keys against a central (parent) site and still be placed correctly into the appropriate child org. This removes corner cases where students could register on a parent organization site that uses an older custom login page file that bypasses the normal org id check process, leaving the user registered incorrectly.
  • Class – Lab Activities. Resolved an issue that allowed non-basic users to launch otherwise disabled class activities.

Multiple API Keys for API Consumers

  • API consumers now support creating, disabling, expiring, and revoking API keys.
  • Manual key rotation available, add a new key and mark the old one to expire after a set period of time.
  • Keys can be named to describe intended purpose.
  • Keys can be copied to clipboard with the click of a button without exposing the key.
