How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

This collection of enhancements for the November ’22 Release is part of the larger initiative to provide a modern, consistent, improved administrator user experience to our customers. While we are confident that most of our customers will see tremendous value in the new enhancements, we also understand that accelerating the pace of innovation means trying new things. And that means changes we make to our products won’t always work for everyone.

To that end, we are releasing our new UI/UX enhancements in Early Adopter mode, and have built guardrails into this release that enable you to maximize value and minimize risk:

We encourage you to take a test drive first: While we’re confident that most of you will find great value in the new UI/UX features, you can make sure they’re right for your team by taking a test drive in STAGE before implementing them in production. The enhancements are automatically enabled in Stage environments for all organizations and can be disabled via the Learning Feature Activation Preferences page (Admin Tools > Learning > Learning Preferences > Feature Activation > User Interface Modifications).

It is your choice to turn on (or off) these new features: You can choose to introduce these new features in production via the Learning Feature Activation Preferences. If there ever comes a time that you want to turn off these features and revert to your prior experience in Production or Stage, you can do so by disabling.

Your feedback is key: We have been receiving customer and have incorporated much of it into this release. As you test and introduce new enhancements to your teams, we want to hear from you! Your input and feedback will help us continue to deliver what you need for your teams and organizations. Please share your feedback with us in Validation Station.
