New LMS feature: tick-box selections retained through multiple searches

Searching and filtering in the LMS is now much more powerful. Administrators can perform multiple searches, make selections and perform actions on those selections. The LMS retains selections throughout multiple searches.

How to take advantage of this feature

One common way to use this feature is for enrolling multiple users in a course. You can search for a user, tick their box and then search for another user. You can do this multiple times without being concerned that your selection will be forgotten.

VinciWorks by the numbers: 2016 a year in review

In the waning days of 2016, as we huddled around our board room fireplace with hot chocolate and crumpets, we took some time to reflect on a stellar 2016 and look forward to the incredible new innovations yet to come in the new year.

14 new courses

Traditionally VinciWorks has provided compliance training primarily to the legal sector. We proudly train over 20% of all UK solicitors and work with 60 of the top 100 global law firms.

In 2016 we expanded our corporate offering significantly and created courses that are tailored to many new industries.

This year we introduced the Corporate Compliance Suite, which includes courses on the Bribery Act, money laundering, information security, cyber security, diversity and the Modern Slavery Act. There are sector-specific courses for accountants, corporates, estate agents and financial services firms.
