What’s New in Adobe Captivate Prime

This week Adobe launched the latest updates to Adobe Captivate Prime LMS.  Prime updates are automatically rolled up on regular intervals and some of them add new features and functionality. This week’s update added several important new features.

  • GDPR – Purge Account(s)
  • Tag management
  • Email MS Outlook format calendar invites
  • Label customization
  • PowerBI integration
  • LinkedIn Learning Connector
  • Slack Bot for Prime

General Data Protection Regulation is a new standard for privacy protection adopted by nations in the European Union which becomes a legal requirement on May 25th. You’ll likely see all kinds of privacy updates related to this requirement in various online software. The most significant (read visible) requirement added here comes in the form of a new tool allowing administrators to completely delete / remove records for individual users. A Prime user can now request that their account data be removed, and administrators now have the power to purge individual user accounts / data.

Purge Confirmation Dialog

Tag management
Prime users can now edit the meta-tags associated with their learning content. This is a huge new functionality for learning administrators and content creators who want to formalize or control the search terms associated with their learning content. You can easily edit tags, combine tags, add tags into groups, and identify instantly the tags most used and find which courses use them. New functionality here also allows Adobe Captivate Prime admins to determine who can access and create tags. To explore the feature yourself, go to the new Tag panel in the Administrator App in Prime.

Outlook Calendar Invitations
Now your calendar will automatically update thanks to Microsoft Outlook style calendar invitations that push directly to learner’s calendars. This replaces the previous standard *.ics files that would arrive as attachments and makes the experience much simpler from learner’s perspective.

Customizable Navigation Labels
If you always wanted to change the name of Learning Plans to ‘Automation’ in Adobe Captivate Prime, for example, now you can do that and more. The common labels used for the learners are now editable (at least in English) and you can set them fairly easily.  Just go to Admin: Settings: General and select ‘Product Terminology.’ Click edit and you’ll see a source file to download the terminology set as a *.csv file. You can edit it by simply replacing the singular and plural version of the term in the second column. Save your file and then upload it in the dialog provided to make the changes.

PowerBI Integration
Microsoft PowerBI is a specialized data visualization solution for representing data in modern dashboards through graphs and other infographs. While Prime contains an internal set of reports that can display data in a series of dashboards and graphs, third party tools like Microsoft PowerBI can also be used to represent your data in ever-more useful and graphically rich ways. Now a connector has been added to Adobe Captivate Prime that will allow users to automatically integrate with Microsoft PowerBI and easily upgrade your reporting game. Find this new Connector in the Connectors panel in the Integration Admin panel.

LinkedIn Learning Connector
An additional new connector puts the power of LinkedIn Learning in your hands.  Leverage your LinkedIn Learning courses right inside of Adobe Captivate Prime, just like you do with Lynda.com and other learning libraries. Simply configure the new connector to automatically pull new courses, index them and make them searchable and fully integrated into your Adobe Captivate Prime learning experiences. Find this new Connector in the Connectors panel in the Integration Admin panel.

Slack App
Finally, a new Slack App is now available for Adobe Captivate Prime. You’ll find it in the Apps section under the Integration Admin: Featured Apps. The Slack App will allow you to insert a clever little Prime Bot into Slack channels. This will let people search for courses and learning programs, get recommendations, check status and much more, from right within the slack channel.
