Note: The ascending/descending order is shown by the profile creating date.

Previous Question Button for the Single Quiz

Now your student will be able to use a newly implemented previous button to go back to a prior quiz. This option will be enabled by default. You can choose to either disable it or enable it based on your requirement.

Pop-up Asking for a Review After Course Completion

This one was a highly requested feature by users. From now on students will be asked to review their completed course once they have clicked the “Complete Course” button.

Note: If you disable the course review option from Tutor LMS settings, the pop-up option will be disabled as well.

Fix for Duplicate Order Statements in Instructor Profile

Disclaimer: This was shown only in earning statement. It had no effect on the total earning calculation.

An issue was raised regarding duplicated statements showing the instructor dashboard’s earning section. You will be glad to know that the duplicate statement issue has been resolved with the latest release. Even if a duplicated statement was shown in the earning section on the dashboard, the total earning calculation was always shown correctly. The duplicate issue had no effect on the correct earning value.

    Course review option on clicking the course completion button not happening. I will highly request that Tutor LMS team should record these features via video to make it more explanatory.

      Hey Satish,

      If you have already posted a review for the course then the pop up might not appear for you. Please communicate with the support team for detailed diagnostics and resolution.

    What kind of “Update” it is to disable the meeting host selection? It selects the first user in my organisation, so I can never select myself to be a host.

      Hi,

      The primary author or the user that created the course is always assigned as the meeting host. As the instructor will connect their own API. We have adjusted the design to make our communication and expectations of the user more clear.
