Release notes for new features and improvements on Eduflow

PDF attachments now viewable in activity description

We are happy to announce that PDF attachments now can be viewed directly within the activity description making it more convenient to access and review course materials for instructors, assistants and learners alike.

Instructors now have the ability to expand a PDF attachment, making it viewable in activity without needing to download it first. Users can easily navigate through the pages of the attachment.

Course data rule

Today we are releasing the first part of the new course data rule, which is the latest addition to activity rules that we launched recently. With this release, Eduflow’s activity rules take customisations of learning designs to the next level, allowing you to set up specific rules for completion and visibility on any activity or flow based on learners' answers to questions.

How does it work

The new data rule allows you to set up a rule for when an activity or flow is visible to a learner based on their answers to a question – for example from a quiz or form activity. Furthermore, it allows you to set up a rule for when an activity is ready to interact with – i.e., if the activity is open and ready to complete for learners – also based on learners' answers to questions.

Activity support

We currently support questions from all of the following activities, with more to come later:

  • Quiz
  • Form
  • Self review
  • Instructor review
  • Peer review
  • Group member review
  • Feedback reflection

We hope you'll enjoy our latest addition to activity rules! We're excited to see how you use them. We are constantly working on improving our product with new and existing features to help you to create creative and complex learning designs.

Activity rules

We're finally ready to reveal our new and improved activity rules. We have completely reworked how activities can be set up in order to provide you with an even more powerful set of features to design courses. You can do all of the things you were able to do before including a long list of new options. Here's what the new update includes:

Activity slide-in

The old activity settings page has been replaced with a slide-in that allows you to work faster while designing your courses. The new slide-in will stay open as you navigate between activities. If you are on a large monitor, you will be able to keep the activity settings panel open at all times allowing you to easily interact with content and settings at the same time.

Activity settings

The first tab in the new activity settings contains all the activity settings that you're used to. We have updated the user experience and look of activity settings to be easier and faster to interact with.

Activity rules: Completion & visibility

We have reworked how activity rules used to work and separated them into two different categories: completion and visibility.

You will be using completion rules to decide which activities learners can interact with. Think of them as rules that decide if an activity is locked, not open yet or ready to complete for learners. This is where you will set up rules like prerequisites and deadlines.

You also have the option to set up visibility rules that decides when a learner can see the activity in the course. Think of them as rules for when participants has access to and can see the activity in the course sidebar. This is where you will typically set up rules that only shows the activity to a subset of learners or completely hides it from them.

New learning design possibilities

It might not be immediately obvious, but with this change comes a long list of new possibilities for how you can design your courses. Here are a few examples of how you can leverage the new rules to achieve things that used to not be possible in Eduflow:

  • You can now set up a visibility rule to reveal an activity at a given date and time.
  • You can now set up a visibility rule to hide certain activities from assistants.
  • You can now set up a visibility rule that will reveal activities once other activities have been completed.
  • You can now set up completion rules for a flow that will propagate to all activities it contains.
  • You will soon be able to use course data to build out rules. This will make it possible to do powerful stuff like creating a learning path based on answers from a form or unlock activities based on scores.

We're still working on adding new features to activity rules that will give you even more power to design your learning experiences. We know that change can be hard to deal with, but we hope that this update will serve you well and that you see the potential of our new features.

We're eager (and a bit nervous) to hear what you think about these feature updates. Let us know via email or by reaching out through out in-app chat support.

Form activity

Today we’re releasing one of the most requested activity types: forms! You can now create a form that learners have to submit in order to complete the activity.

The activity comes packed with 5 different question types that you can use to build your forms with:

  • Text
  • Multiple choice
  • Video
  • Stack ranking
  • Number rating

Read more about the Form activity in our Help Center ->

Set default language for all learners

Today, we are happy to announce a highly requested improvement to our localization feature on Eduflow to enhance the learning experience. Institution administrators now have the ability to set a default language for all learners within their institution. In addition, learners still have the option to overwrite the default language in their personal user settings. This improvement helps to ensure that all emails will be sent in the institution's default language unless the learner chooses to change it.

We hope you are happy with this latest addition to Eduflow.

Please note that access to the localization feature only is available to users on Eduflow's Pro plan or above.

Let learners reach out to administrators, instructors, and assistants

We're pleased to announce learners' ability to reach out to administrators, instructors, and assistants for support directly from the user menu within Eduflow. With this new feature, learners can easily find and reach out for help and assistance directly from the Eduflow user menu, eliminating the need to search for contact information. This streamlines the process and makes it simple to connect with the right people.

For institution owners and administrators, full control is provided through Eduflow's messaging permission settings to determine which staff members are available to be contacted by learners. We believe this new feature will provide a more convenient and efficient way for learners to receive the support they need.

🙈 Anonymous instructor reviews

We have added a new setting to the instructor review activity that allows you to anonymise the list of learners when giving feedback. This will help remove bias when reviewing learner submissions.

How to enable anonymity for instructor reviews

To turn on anonymity for instructor reviews, go to the activity settings → enable "Make feedback giver anonymous".

Important note on anonymity

It's important to note that this will not remove anonymity completely. As a course instructor it will always be possible to find out what feedback was given to whom by going to the Results interface and reveal reviews.

📐 Set aspect ratio for embed and SCORM activities

We got a lot of requests for ways to change the way embeds and SCORM files are shown in Eduflow. Today we're shipping a feature that allows you to set the aspect ratio for your embeds and SCORM modules. This gives you more flexibility when it comes to designing activities.

Read more about how it works here.

﹛﹜Use variables in custom code and embeds

We've recently added the option to use variables in the custom code section and embed activities. This opens up for a few really cool things like:

  • Passing user information to 3rd party analytics tools.
  • Send user data to embedded tools like for example form tools.
  • Create Zaps that auto-complete activities when data is submitted in an embed activity.

You can even write logic statements using the liquid template language. Read more about how variables work in Eduflow here.

👀 Preview course

We've just made it a lot easier to preview courses in Eduflow! You can now add test learners that you can use to preview your course design with.

How to add test learners

Open the course context menu and click Test users. In the next layer of the menu, specify how many test learners you want to add to your course. Click on

+ Add test users. If you have a Super plan or above, you have access to the Assistant role type and you will also be able to add test assistants.

Impersonating test learners

The easiest way to impersonate test learners is from the course sidebar. Open the Test users context menu and click the test learner you want to impersonate. You will now see the current activity impersonating the selected test learner. You can now go through the course, complete activities and see how the course design works from a learner's point of view. Once you're done you can exit impersonation mode.

🧑‍💻 Customize Eduflow with CSS and JavaScript

You can now customize Eduflow using CSS and JavaScript, giving you the ability to use the advanced theme settings to apply custom styles and behaviors throughout the entire institution 🏫. This update allows for more flexibility in branding and creating a personalized learning experience 💄

Additionally, we're happy to announce that custom page titles are now available. This means you can customize the page titles of Eduflow to better reflect your institution.

We hope these updates will help you make the most out of Eduflow and create an even better learning experience for your learners 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

🏷️ Eduflow introduces powerful new user properties feature

We are excited to announce the release of our new user properties feature, available now in Eduflow 🎉 This powerful new tool allows you to add custom properties to the participants in your institution, giving you more flexibility and an improved overview of all participants in your institution.

With user properties, you can create and assign custom attributes to users, such as their department, job role, seniority level 📊 This makes it easy to filter and group users based on these properties, allowing you to quickly and easily access the information you need.

We believe that user properties will greatly enhance your ability to manage and track learning in your institution 🚀 Try it out today and let us know what you think! 💭


Eduflow's new user property feature allows administrators and owners to customize attributes for their participants. These properties can be easily viewed in the admin participants table and can be used to tag users for better organization and filtering.

📈 Institution dashboard

A couple of months ago we released course dashboards in Eduflow. Now this feature is also available on an institution level for all admins to create visualisations and charts to stay on tops of all that's going on in the institution! 📊

The institution dashboard is available for all customers on a Plus plan or above.

Localisation for learners

Over the past few months we've been preparing Eduflow to support translations to other languages. Today we're excited to share the first version of our this project: localisation for learners!

For customers on a Super plan or above, it's now possible to enable localisation for learners in the institution. To enable it, go to your admin panel → Settings and toggle on localisation. Now all learners in your institution will be able to set their language in user settings. We currently support English and Danish.

🔝 Add content above and below embeds, videos and SCORM modules

We've just released a small improvement that goes a long way. You can now add content both above and below your videos, embeds or SCORM modules!

Here's a quick tip video showing how the feature works.

💬 Messaging in Eduflow

Today we are happy to introduce messaging in Eduflow 💬. Messaging lets any participant in an Eduflow institution or course initiate a conversation with one another. Furthermore, messaging allows for group conversations between multiple participants 👨👨👧👦. The new messaging feature is available today on all devices – from desktop to mobile 🖥 📱

⚙️ Get full control of messaging

In addition to the new messaging feature, we are also launching advanced messaging permission settings, which allows institution owners and admins to set up rules for which user roles are able to message each other.

📧 Stay up-to-date with email notifications

To make sure that everyone sees the messages you send them, we will automatically send an email notification if people don’t see the message inside Eduflow within 5 minutes.

✨ Update button text and link on course page

We've made a small, but powerful improvement to the call-to-action button on the course page. You can now update the button text and link!

All you need to do is go to your course page in edit mode, click the gear icon button next to the call-to-action button and change the copy and link.

This change now allows you to do a few cool things:

Sell courses

You can now change the call-to-action button link to a sales page hosted by Shopify, Gumroad or any of the many other online storefronts available. With a Zapier automation, you can set up a workflow that automatically enrolls learners once they've made a payment.

Only enroll learners after acceptance

Link the call-to-action button to a form online and only invite learners into your course when they have been accepted by you.

☑️ Checklist activity

Today we are happy to announce the new checklist activity on Eduflow. ✨ The checklist activity makes it simple for instructors to create checklists in the same intuitive interface they already know from any other activities on the platform. Create checklists in Eduflow anytime and anywhere – on the desktop or on the phone 🖥📱

The new checklist activity – plus the never-ending possibilities of combining it with any of our existing activities – is now available to you and all instructors using Eduflow. We hope you'll make good use of it! 😊

Plagiarism detection with Turnitin

We're happy to share that we've just wrapped up one of the most requested features for Eduflow — plagiarism detection! The feature is made possible through an integration with Turnitin.

🕰 Event log table in course dashboard

We've just added a new event log table to the course dashboard section.

📎 Improved file uploads

We've just shipped some improvements to file uploads that gives added flexibility and new possibilities in Eduflow.

File uploads in discussions

We've updated our rich-text editor in our discussion activity to support file uploads. We will be expanding the file upload functionality to all rich-text editors in Eduflow in the near future.

Improvements to file uploads in activities

Before you had to upload all of your files into a section that would always show up at the bottom of your activity description. Now, you get to decide for yourself where in the description you want your files!

🖼 Favicon & small logo customization options

We've improved our white-labelling options by enabling users to add a favicon that will display in the browser tab and a small logo that will be shown in emails.

If you're on a Pro plan or above you now have the option to upload a favicon and small logo. The favicon will show in your browser's tab bar while the small logo will be showing up in email notifications.

This effectively means that you will be able to completely white-label your institution!
