Changes to Editing of a Course Profile

We have implemented changes to the process of editing a course profile.

  • Course Name
  • Short Name
  • Version
  • Description
  • Auto Archive
  • Archive

If you need to make changes outside of the above, you will need to perform a “Save As” on the course.  This will create a new course profile and […]

Due to these specific requirements, only Learn On Demand Systems Staff can create […]

Earlier this month, we released functionality that allowed a user to transfer their lab instance to another user via email within the Lab on Demand platform. We’ve now included this functionality within the TMS.

A user can now transfer their lab instance to another user from within the same organization. The transfer occurs via the recipient’s email address.

Items to be aware of:

  • The system looks in the Primary Email address field in the transferee’s LOD profile. The user must belong to the same organization as the owning user in LOD. If the email […]
