  2. Groups
    Create Groups on the LRS and allow Users/Managers to have access to data of specific groups only.We have also added integration with LearnDash Groups, so if you have created groups on LearnDash, the group data is automatically pulled from LearnDash to LRS.
  3. Save Reports/Filters
    Now save your filtered reports as reports and access them from Reports menu. And, you can generate as many filtered reports as you want.
  4. Automated Emails of PDF/CSV Reports
    You can now send recurring emails of filtered reports in PDF or CSV formats to any email ids you choose, and in any frequency you want.LRS PDF Report

  5. Score/Percentage Filters
    We now have more filters for reports. You can filter by score and percentage. So useful, I am wondering why we did not have it before?
  6. Better control on what Users/Manager can access
    Want more control? You can now create User/Manager on the LRS with access to specific menus/features. So you can now may be, decide to give access to reports only and not let them change configurations.
  7. Backups
    You can now generate file and database backups of the LRS from the LRS, or automated backups. You can configure it to save to server, or FTP it, or even email it.
  8. Remote SSO
    So far you could automatically login to the LRS from WordPress backend only if WordPress and LRS was on the same server. Now, you can SSO from another server as well. Just configure the IP or domain name in GrassBlade LRS > Configure > Integrations > SSO.
  9. Translation Ready
    This version is translation ready, so it can now be translated to other languages.
  10. Sound, Secure and Robust
    The new version adds several security features, fixes a bunch of bugs. Overall much more robust.
