API News

You can now utilize multiple API Keys independently from your main one. This can be helpful if you have different licensees, subcontractors, clients, etc that wish to utilize the API separate from your main one.

The keys can be changed, activated/deactivated and also have a set of setting restrictions associated with them. Navigate to the API Management section to check it out!

We've added several new webhooks recently. Webhooks can be utilized with third party apps like Zapier to create your own reports, trigger emails, and many other things.

  • New property added to count the number of times a user signed in.
  • Fixed an issue where Location creation webhooks were not sending out "auto expire" information.
  • Chapter Result: Added a new "complete count" field here instead of being in the chapter_complete webhook as it would cause problems for existing configured events.
  • The "Force Training Completion" feature will now trigger Course completion webhooks.
