AX-8463 - Students can now see and download the file(s) they uploaded against Marking Criteria and RPL in the Learner Portal.
AX-8666 - We have added a new event trigger type for automated tasks. Clients can now set workflows to run when accredited class enrolment statuses are changed. For example, when an enrolment changes from "In Progress" to "Completed". This event can also run when an enrolment is deleted.

November 6th 2019
AX-8320 - We have added new template fields to better support VSL clients. These are: [Unit of Study Student Paid] and [Unit of Study Student Balance], which will provide a value of any payments made against student contribution amounts for units of study and any balance remaining. Note that some partial payments may not appear. Full rules can be found in the help guide.
AX-8483 - From this release clients will notice some new fields to support the upcoming TCSI changes for reporting VET Student Loans to the government.
On student enrolment, qualification and delivery location edit pages, there is a new field under the existing VET Student Loan status for HEPCAT, which is a status for TCSI. Currently, this is not available in production but is a placeholder for the TCSI integration. It will have information on the record's current errors and warning from TCSI and a button to manually update TCSI with the data.
AX-8500 - Additional validation has been added to the EzyPay subscriptions page.
AX-8590 - We have contacted our hosting provider (AWS) to add a reverse DNS lookup for postoffice.axcelerate.com.au. This should help clients using our post office relay server.

AX-8730 - We have added the ability for VSL-provider clients integrating with the eCAF API to view student debt information. On the unit of study edit page, simply click the button to "Retrieve Debt Information". Note that this will only work where a student has both a date of birth and CHESSN already recorded.
AX-8189 - An issue has been resolved with the in-house booking form where blank USIs would prevent students from being booked.

AX-8350 - When updating a unit enrolment, the option Automatically sync enrolment completion date will no longer be checked by default. To update enrolment dates, this needs to be specifically selected by the user.
AX-8496 - When connecting a contact with Ezypay to share their personal information, a contact note will automatically be added to the contact record. Optionally, the user who performed the action will also be able to add notes and upload a file to attach as further evidence of the contact's permission to share their information with Ezypay.
AX-8567 - We have updated the contact merge tool to allow administrators to merge contacts regardless of whether they have been provisioned in our online assessment engine or not. Users will still not be able to merge contacts enrolled in the same assessment instance.
AX-8592 - Canvas Integration Improvements:
aXcelerate no longer tries to process previously imported Assignment Group Learning Activities when the Canvas Integration Type is set to Modules.
Added Bulk Import for Modules
Added the ability to see "leftover" Assignment Group Learning Activities (on the Module list)
Added the ability to deactivate/activate imported Canvas Learning Activities (Assignment Groups and Modules)
AX-8606 - For clients with enrolments in Victorian classes, we have resolved an issue with the logic around the automatic reporting of the VIC Program Status ID in the NAT00130 file. Previously, completed and award-issued enrolments were only reporting code 10 (Program completed - issued) if the award issued was a full qualification certificate. Now, this code will also be used if a statement of attainment is issued, but only if the class is set as a statement of attainment only class.
AX-8629 - Ezypay customer IDs are now part of the contact merge. Users will not be able to merge contacts if they both have active Ezypay subscriptions.
AX-8641 - More "Learner Numbers" information is now shown on the Account Statistics page for multi-account holders and accounts that have SCORM E-Learning switched on.

October 9th 2019
AX-8449 - Canvas Enrolments can now be marked as ‘Invalid’ by aXcelerate or an aXcelerate User. This is to stop Canvas Students who were deleted/merged or removed from a Canvas course, being processed when the system checks for (Assignment Group or Module) completions.
AX-8467 - We have added a legend to the Assessments View in the class matrix.
AX-8510 - A new option is available in the Certificate Template Builder called Hide Unit Codes on the units table, which will prevent these from being displayed on generated certificates.

AX-8570 - An image can now be set for Qualifications that will appear in the NEW learner portal
AX-8627 - The quick search feature on the payment and refund pages can now filter based on “unapplied” transactions.

AX-7828 - For clients using the eWay Rapid or SqID payment gateways, we have added a new public-facing landing page to allow administrators to pass a URL to their customers who can then enter their credit card details to pay an invoice. This link is available either via a template field or can be copied directly when viewing the invoice in the finance management screen. (Ideas Forum Post: https://axcelerate.zendesk.com/hc/en-gb/community/posts/222600488-Online-Payment-Service)
AX-7958 - It is now possible to specify a note type for quality goal notes. An issue has also been resolved that prevented sending an email when updating a quality goal note.
AX-8198 - Some old icons displaying in the new UI have been fixed/cleaned-up
AX-8425 - Sometimes, clients running training in Victoria, need to generate a new Victorian Identifier against a unit enrolment. Previously, this had been locked down as changing this value can have serious implications for VIC reporting. However, we have now added a new button at the unit enrolment level that will allow users with the "Compliance Reporting" permission to reset this value.

AX-8509 - The Account Statistics page in System Settings now displays a history of learner numbers in a chart. The ability to backdate the learner numbers is no longer required but you can search the chart historically back to mid-2017.
The page now loads much faster by skipping File Usage data and the breakdown of the current billing cycle learners. You can click a link to see these items if you wish to load the additional data.
AX-8536 - When cancelling an accredited workshop booking, the checkbox “Withdraw from related Units of Competency” will now be checked by default, to help prevent students being counted as Active Learners when they were cancelled.

AX-8289 - The reporting API endpoints now include in the return structure a key, ROWLIMIT, to let the user know what the limit is for their report.
AX-8346 - Some clients have linked Moodle courses with well over 1000 enrolments. In order to support searching for unlinked users in these huge courses, the Moodle view students tab will now search only in blocks of 1000. Users will be able to specify which block to search in order to find the student they wish to import.
AX-8353 - We have added a new option when transferring class enrolments. If the transfer involves linked workshops, then the user will have the option to sync the unit start and end dates with the dates of the transferred workshop enrolment. Formally, this was always done which was causing some issues for clients who were transferring units with a reportable outcome, such as CA.
AX-8371 - Improved error handling when attempting to edit a certificate with an invalid ID.
AX-8375 - User provisioning in Canvas has been improved to include an additional check when enrolling students to account for cases where the student's email address has changed in Canvas.

AX-8396 - When using the bulk workshop creation tool, the duration will initially load with the default value set at the workshop type level if that value is in a non-standard unit other than "days".
AX-8356 - We cleaned up some old code for performance efficiency. For some clients, it may result in a slight difference in what email address is selected by default in the CC list or the default salutation when sending merge documents or templates.
AX-8302 - An issue has been resolved where clients who have reached their user limit were unable to reactivate student users.

AX-8118 - Further incremental styling and user interface updates have been made to the trainer competencies/evidence area.
AX-8129 - We have made an important improvement to the system to prevent users from accidentally locking themselves out. Users can no longer remove the "User Management" permission from their own user record or alter a user role in a way that would remove that permission from themselves.
AX-8145 - Workflow users will now have the ability to pause automated tasks. Tasks can be paused indefinitely, or they can be paused until a certain date and time.

AX-8268 - An issue has been resolved when creating a workshop where the duration field would display a negative value if the start date was after the end date (or if no start date is yet filled out)
AX-8278 - To address performance concerns, the Contact Notes by User live report is unavailable until further notice. Instead, please use the warehoused version, which will have all data up to last night and is refreshed every night. In the future, once reinstated, the live report will only have data for the current day.
July 17th 2019
AX-7962 - The Contact Portfolio permission has now been split into more granular permissions for view, add, update, and delete. All users and roles that previously had the single permission will now have all of the granular permissions.
- NOTE: API users will now require the delete permission to delete their own documents.
- This was posted on the ideas forum here: https://axcelerate.zendesk.com/hc/en-gb/community/posts/115008055107-Permission-Group-Contact-Portfolio
AX-7987: The Assistant Panel now includes Short Hits of Training (SHOTs); these are short training videos that demonstrate how to use particular system features.
AX-6972 - Character limits have been removed from the following fields against workshop venues:
- Parking Notes
- Catering Notes
- Equipment Details
AX-7859 - We have implemented some efficiencies with the course/enrolments API endpoint to return this dataset faster. There should be no change in the data returned.
AX-7951 - We have released a new warning on the print certificate page for clients using our Trainer Competencies feature. For students whose unit enrolments are not linked to a trainer with a train or assess competency, the system will report a warning for that student and give the number of units. This is a warning only and will not prevent certificates from being printed.
AX-7986 - Automated task conditions for qualifications and workshop types have been switched to an autocomplete search and will not include inactive courses.
AX-8022 - We have made a significant improvement on how batch emails are handled. The system will no longer abort the email batch on the first error it comes across but skip that contact and continue to email the rest. If the system encounters 20 errors in a single batch, that batch will be aborted. This change will affect templates, merge documents and class and workshop mailouts, and survey mailouts.
AX-8029 - You can now choose to provision Canvas users with the Alternate Email Address (found in the AVETMISS/VET fields area).

AX-8080 - A number of UI enhancements have been made to the Goals/Quality register.
AX-8095 - Assessment Mapping bubbles have been updated to show "9+" (in assessment plans) when there are more than 9 units related to them. You can hover over to see the full count.

AX-8131 - An issue has been resolved in the Account Statistics tab in System Settings.
AX-8139 - The class duplicate tool will now duplicate custom fields.
AX-8142 - For our VSL clients, we have updated the VET Course Completions report logic (VCC) to only include enrolments whose status is "Completed". Previously, an eligible student with an actual course end date was being included in the report.
We have added a checkbox on the update unit enrolment page to choose whether to sync the enrolment end date upon submit. If checked, and the enrolment contains all final unit outcomes, the system will set the actual completion date to be the latest activity end date. If any unit outcomes are non-final, then the system will set the expected completion date. This feature always existed in the background, the checkbox just makes it more explicit and visible to users.
AX-7825 - An issue has been resolved with the Workshop Update page when using the Trainer Competency feature.
AX-7952 - An issue has been resolved where the class listed for the Update trainer for linked enrolments was not always the class directly linked to the workshop.

July 3rd 2019
AX-7618 - Organisations now support notes in the same way as contacts. Organisation notes support several attachments and are controlled by the Notes Management permissions.
AX-7819 - It is now possible to deactivate organisations. Inactive organisations will be hidden from reports and searches by default.
AX-8069 - For VET Student Loan providers, we have now released a beta implementation with eCAF. Currently, it will allow providers to:
- Manually create a new enrolment/eCAF per student enrolment
- View eCAF and Tax File Number verification statuses
- Process eCAFs that have been submitted by the student and the TFN has been verified. The system will then save the TFN against their contact record.
- Manually create and view progressions
If you are interested in trying out this feature and providing feedback, please contact our support team.
AX-7831 - The Evidence Matrix tab under the trainer competencies area has been split into separate tabs for TAE and unit evidence to better support larger volumes of data. The interface for viewing TAE evidence has also been improved.
AX-7911 - A new filter (Assessment Resulted) has been added to the Assessment Submission Report
AX-7919 - Linked accounts that are on a per-user basis will now have to ensure the number of users across all their accounts is not greater than their user license. If it is above, you will not be able to add any additional non-student users.

June 19th 2019
AX-7353 - We now support workshop booking custom fields! These fields can be defined in your system settings and made available when booking students via the administrator portal as well as the API. They can be used in templates and will appear in workshop booking warehoused reports.
AX-5504 - We have updated the Finance > Agent Commissions area to use client terminology.
AX-7861 - Performance improvements for the Learning Activity Framework (SCORM Engine, Canvas & Moodle)
AX-7870 - There is a new UI Settings tab, which allows clients to control access to "beta" pages and features.
AX-7875 - A number of usability improvements have been made to the in-house booking form:
- Help/instructions for the page are now distributed in the form of tooltips
- Commas are now supported in the fields given name, surname, work phone and mobile phone
- Sorting has been removed from the booking form
AX-7841 - We have improved the contact search to allow users to search for special characters and dropped the minimum to search from 4 to 2. For performance reasons, the search will also only return the first 200 results.
AX-7846 - We have added a date option for clients using the Unit Offset Upon First Attendance feature. This feature optionally adjusts unit start and end dates when marking attendance. The end date can either be offset based on the new start date or the end of the workshop. This offset can be configured in your system settings under the RTO/VET tab.
AX-7884 - aXcelerate will now retrieve and display all Canvas Course Sections during enrolment.
AX-7943 - UI has been improved so that some fields that have interactive list options or help widgets such as the date picker will disable the auto-complete function in the browser.

AX-8006 - A system flag has been created to enable alternating table row colours in the new UI.
AX-6263 - An issue has been resolved in the /contact/noteTypes/ endpoint. An incorrect error message would be returned if the API user did not have the Notes Management View permission

June 5th 2019
From the Ideas Forum
AD-573 - We have implemented a status page that will be used to manage/communicate system incidents and outages. You can view the page here: https://axcelerate.statuspage.io/.
AX-7387 - We have updated our ASQA Learner Engagement / Employer Satisfaction survey results page. ASQA no longer requires a complex text file export for this data. Instead, they have a summary document called the Quality Indicator annual summary report, that is required to be filled out by providers.
This document is available from the ASQA website and asks a series of questions regarding feedback rates and improvement actions. You can use our new LE/ES results page to view survey results and response rates for a specific date range. Users will still be able to filter on qualification or class, and we have also introduced a new filter on domains.
Further, in order to better provide response rate data, aXcelerate will now record when a survey link has been issued (emailed) to a contact for each calendar year.
For clients that still wish to use the older export system, please contact our support team and ask them to switch off this new results page and instead enable Legacy LE/ES Reporting.
AX-7554 - The Australian government has stipulated that education courses are to be GST-free, however, there are some cases where clients are delivering specific, non-accredited courses through our class framework that need to include GST. To support this, we have added a new class field, "includes GST", that when selected, will apply GST for tuition line items for all enrolments in that class, including those generated via the API. GST can always be added or not at the time of invoicing for all clients if generating a manual invoice.
We have also removed a field at the class level that was never implemented: "Auto-generate invoice on public/portal enrolment". This also used to be returned in the API as autoGenerateInvoice.
AX-7592 - A new option has been added on the Additional Options tab (in System Settings) to control whether Students can contact Trainers via the Learner Portal
AX-7609 - The certificate number (for statements of attainment) has been added to the class enrolments report. Previously only the full certificate number was available.
AX-7620 - The file size limit on resource has been increased from 10MB to 50MB.
AX-7631 - The workshop type code has been added to the drop-down on the Search Workshops page to maintain consistency with the Add Workshop page.
AX-7636 - You can now choose to provision Moodle users with the Alternate Email Address (found in the AVETMISS/VET fields area)
AX-7655 - We have now added a new option for workflow clients to send automated templates to the employers of students enrolled in accredited classes. The employer is determined by either being set directly against the student's contact record or by being set as the employer contact against a student's organisation.
AX-7683 - We have improved the course/enrolments and contact/enrolments API endpoints to return the actual AVETMISS outcome code (e.g. 90, 20) as part of the return struct. The letter status code (e.g. "NYA", "C") will still continue to be part of the return.
AX-7823 - Phone number filters have been changed in the report builder. Generally, a phone number would be a display field and not a filter. What may be more useful is finding out if the information exists or not so most phone number filters now only support "Has a value" and "Has no value" options. Warehoused reports will have a new "Any phone number contains" filter which will check home, work and mobile phone numbers. You should not put any spaces or characters such as +() into this filter, only digits.
AX-7833 - We have increased the session timeout for all aXcelerate users from 1 hour to 3 hours.
AX-7836 - We have added the venue "Room" value as a separate display field in the calendar for workshop events. This means the room will no longer appear in the location field in the calendar.
AX-7873 - We have cleaned up the edit training categories page to remove references to the now deprecated old calendar.
AX-7880 - The size of some fields have been adjusted in the Add Contact Form.
AX-7666 - We have improved validation when uploading evidence from the trainer's evidence matrix.
AX-7756 - A change has been made to Student Document Restrictions. If a Resource in the Resource Library was previously restricted to the Student, all new versions of that document were restricted as well. You can now use the Force Latest Version to control the restrictions on the latest version.
AX-7764 - On the Assessment Management page, the Marking Icon will no longer be visible/accessible (against the Instance) when there are no enrolments
AX-7693 - Please note that some system settings have been removed. The most notable being the Addresses defaulting to AVETMISS format. This is now the only way contact addresses can be entered for new contacts.
AX-7760 - The AVETMISS Report has been updated for the SVTS requirement to report "none" for the Client Given Name field for students who only have one name.
AX-7807 - Clients will now be able to navigate straight into the aXcelerate Ideas Forum from the Help menu

AX-7684 - An issue has been resolved in the default dropdown wording when selecting to send an enrolment template in the workflow engine.
AX-7762 - An issue has been resolved where the contact note type added after emailing a Learner Engagement or Employer Satisfaction survey link via an automated workflow task was not the correct type as specified in the client system settings.
AX-7786 - An issue has been resolved in the Learner Portal where students making more than one attempt would be redirected back to their online assessment after completing and exiting
AX-7814 - An issue has been resolved where students were sometimes unable to upload additional attempt files against standard assessments, even if an administrator had granted them more attempts against their unit enrolment.
AX-7816 - An issue with enrolments permissions has been resolved. Previously, to enrol a student into a workshop and linked e-learning, the e-learning enrolment process would check the user's class instance add permission. It now correctly checks the e-learning enrolment permission.
Further, enrolling a student into linked workshops for a class enrolment now checks the user's enrolment rather than the class instance add and update permissions.
AX-7821 - An issue has been resolved where users with both student and admin access would be able to add a contact note if logged in under their student user in a different browser tab.
AX-7872 - An issue has been resolved in the Learner Portal where multiple Finish Assessment dialogs would appear
AX-7913 - An issue has been resolved in the Learner Portal where Standard Assessments were still showing in the Next Assessment Due area, when Standard Assessments were turned off.
AX-7918 - An issue has been resolved with class matrix extra column view selector that was not allowing users to search across the fields.
May 22nd 2019
AX-7212 - We have fixed a situation where clients were deactivating contacts linked to active users. This effectively disabled user access but the user would still appear in lists and other places. To avoid this inconsistency, we have updated the system to prevent administrators from setting a contact to inactive if they are linked to an active non-student user. If the contact is linked to a student user, then setting the contact to inactive will also set the linked user to inactive. This validation is also present in the contact and user update APIs.
AX-7354 - Several improvements have been made to the in-house booking form. Mobile number has been added as a field, and the columns that appear can be customised on the page.
AX-7448 - A link to the Custom Fields page has been added to the Settings menu. The old link will also still remain in the Additional Options tab of the System Settings.
AX-7568 - Merging contacts where the duplicates may be on the same workshop now has better error handling.
AX-7579 - When adding additional units to an existing enrolment, the units will now inherit the scheduled dates if the class has been timetabled.

AX-7625 - A unique identifier can now be specified in the Additional Options section of System Settings. Once set, this value will be appended to all usernames automatically generated by aXcelerate.
AX-7632 - A better error message will be shown when moving a User Task to a date before its Due Date (in the Calendar).
AX-7640 - We have removed the link to the legacy saved reports page.
AX-7690 - The new Assessment Management Page is available for beta testing.
AX-7761 - The latest "Graded At" date is now being used when marking Canvas Assignment Groups completed in aXcelerate.
AX-4965 - An issue has been resolved with duplicate validation messages when adding a Licence or Registration in the Learner Portal.
AX-6272 - An issue has been resolved in the calendar where the time was appearing wrongly in some views if the start or end times went beyond the first or last hour settings in the calendar.
AX-7619 - An issue has been resolved with Default User Role Widgets not appearing.
AX-7628 - An issue has been resolved where room clash detection was not checking when the venue tab for a workshop is first loaded after selecting a room.
AX-7630 - We have made some improvements to how the minimum and maximum values for student contributions in finance models are handled.
An issue has been resolved associated with invoicing extra items per hour for a non-WA class enrolment. The system was incorrectly applying the minimum amount if set.
If manually invoicing a student where their per hour or unit calculated tuition would be over the maximum, the invoicing page will now load to invoice the full remaining tuition by default rather than invoicing per unit. Minimum and maximum tuition values will be ignored if invoicing per unit.
The student status enrolment finance page will now correctly show the truncated total for extra items added via a finance model where the calculated total cost goes over the maximum.
AX-7642 - An issue has been resolved when deleting Online Assessments linked to a class.
AX-7644 - An issue has been resolved with editing multi-step automated tasks with steps of the same action; the UI edit step modal window would sometimes load with the text from the last edited step.
AX-7658 - An issue has been resolved with updating Gap Text/Fill In Blanks text in-line (without using the dialog) and the Solution not updating.
AX-7679 - An issue has been resolved with an Interactive Guide causing the Bulk Enrol Contacts page to become unresponsive.
AX-7686 - An issue has been resolved with the in-house participants booking form always setting the organisation of booked students.
AX-7691 - An issue has been resolved with viewing Online Assessments due to a previously-assigned assessor which had their user record deleted.
AX-7809 - An issue has been resolved which prevented syncing of unit end dates when manually adjusting Assessment Due Dates when enrolling a student into a class.
May 8th 2019
AX-5937 - The old contact password field has now been deprecated.
AX-6942 - A Bulk Set Outcomes option has been added to the class enrolment page, which will allow administrators to override the default/initial unit outcome that's set according to the dates.
AX-7612 - The Canvas Enrolment view now shows a Canvas Assignment Status label next to the icon.
AX-7617 - Assessment reports now have additional information for the Allocated assessor. This will help with workflows where standard assessments have been submitted and are waiting to be marked.
AX-5561 - Additional validation has been added to the /payment/ API endpoint to prevent invalid expiry dates from being processed.
AX-7668 - We have fixed an inconsistency with the employer invoiced field for RAPT reports. If unspecified at the unit enrolment level, the report was outputting Y for any unit enrolment as long as an employer invoice existed for that enrolment. The report now looks at the unit level and reports Y or N based on invoices for employers for that particular unit enrolment. If an employer is invoiced for an enrolment generically, all unit enrolments will report Y.
AX-6239 - An issue has been resolved when loading a survey that has previously been undertaken; previously, this would allow the user to fill out the survey and submit before advising that the survey was already complete.
AX-7522 - A performance issue has been resolved on the "Add Student to Class" page when there are several units and assessments attached.
AX-7561 - An issue has been resolved when attempting to delete an organisation that is linked to a class as the school organisation. An additional check will now be run to detect if the class has enrolments and if so, the appropriate error message will be returned. Otherwise, the organisation will be deleted (note that this will remove them as the school organisation against the class).
AX-7575 - An issue has been resolved where it was possible to send a template if the permission was removed from a user after having already reached the email template form.
AX-7610 - An issue has been resolved with displaying all related eLearning Activities against a Unit in the Learner Portal accredited activity view.
AX-7633 - An issue was resolved in the Learner Portal E-Learning view, where the Launch E-Learning Course button was not working (produced a 404 - Page Not Found error)
AX-7646 - An issue has been resolved with the In House enrolment form with existing contact records
April 24th 2019
From the Ideas Forum
AX-7543 - When adding a workshop note and sending it as an email, the email will now include additional location and client organisation information. The workshop name will also be a hyperlink so the receiver can quickly drill into the workshop to view any additional information.
AX-7435: The Assessment Management page for Online Assessments has been released for beta testing with clients. Please contact our support team if you would like to enable this feature.

AX-7517 - Form validation on the Finance Models page has been improved so you can no longer set a minimum value that is greater than the maximum
AX-7523 - We have now added an additional "Time Range" field to all event types in the calendar. This was especially desirable for clients who were used to the legacy calendar and wanted to see start and end times for all events on the month view.
AX-7524 - By popular demand, the calendar will now show timed events (those with a start and end time on the same day) in the month view the same as all-day events, with white text on a coloured background. This will only happen if more than one field is selected to view with the field configurator, found under the filters menu.
AX-7532 - Previously, our reporting queue has been off while the warehoused database is offline during the nightly refresh. We have now improved our reporting queue to process live reports 24 hours a day.
AX-7546 - We have added a new setting to the VET Settings tab of the system settings to allow for overriding the default started outcome for unit enrolments (Enrolments where the unit start date is in the past). This will allow the default state outcomes to be overridden for both not started and started units.
AX-7576 - We have made the error messages more clear when attempting to change an aXcelerate password and failing the minimum check requirements of having at least 6 characters and at least one number, symbol or mixed-case character.
AX-7498 - The Accredited Related E-Learning in the Learner Portal (on the home page) is now sorted by Learner Start Date (descending) or Learning Activity Start Date (if Learner start date not set) and Name (ascending) order

AX-7533 - New contacts that are created from the In-house Workshop booking page will now have correctly formatted address objects if the address is copied from the client contact.
AX-7254 - Extra Validation has been added for Gap Text in the Online Assessment Authoring Tool

AX-6963 - The Online Assessments question menu for quizzes will be open by default on screens with a horizontal resolution greater than 980px
AX-7291 - Using a paragraph of text as an answer/choice for the Multiple-Choice question type in Online Assessments will no longer cause the text to overlap.
AX-7313 - The restriction on Trainer User Roles not having access to the Review Evidence for Trainer Competencies has been removed
AX-7323 - Users can now directly add "Out of Scope" units to qualification and classes. This feature can be used if your organisation regularly delivers units outside the TGA scope for certain qualifications or streams. With package rules enabled, these units will count toward the out of scope elective count.
We have fixed the class unit header across the matrix and the bulk set outcomes and contract pages to be consistent.
We have added the class matrix's "Filter by Status" field to the bulk set outcomes and contract pages to allow users to view students by statuses.
We have added a new filter status "All" which will allow users to view all students in the class matrix regardless of their enrolment status.
AX-7348 - A new Dashboard Widget called aXcelerate Help (which interacts with the aXcelerate Assistant) has been added
AX-7445 - Updated the invoice and credit note form to prevent users from attempting to enter more than 25 characters into an item code.
AX-7432 - The performance of the calendar has been improved
AX-7450 - Updated the Fee/Concession field for Victorian enrolments to show the full description when selected. Changed the terminology for Aust. Apprenticeship Centre to Aust. Apprenticeship Support Network.
AX-7464 - We have added a check when updating organisations against a contact. This means users must now click an edit icon next to the organisation name on the contact update page in order to change this field. If the system detects that the contact is linked to future payment plan instalments for other students, then changing this organisation is highly discouraged. This was added to prevent problems with corrupt finance data after a key employer or payer contact's organisation is changed.
We have also added a new contact filter "Payer" in payment plan instalment reports.
AX-7488 - The timetabling feature has been updated so the Equipment field uses the standard multi-select used in other areas of aXcelerate. This will enable users to select multiple items much more easily.
AX-7520 - Updates to the Canvas Integration have been made. You can now choose the Canvas Course Section when directly enrolling a Student into an Activity. Also, you can now tell aXcelerate to try and use the Class Name as the Section Name during a Class enrolment.
AX-7531 - Performance has been improved for the Stand-Alone Assessments page.
AX-7534 - Credit note reports now has a new display field: Source Invoice ID. This field is the ID of the invoice used to initially generate this credit note. It is only populated if the credit note was created directly from an invoice.

AX-7503 - Workshop Enrolment Mode will now be logged with its descriptive label instead of a number indicating its order in the dropdown.
AX-7506 - After a USI has been verified only the Given Name, Surname, DOB and USI will be read-only to Students in the Learner Portal.
AX-7454 - Units of Competency are now displayed in Unit Order (as set by the Class) in the Learner Portal
AX-7460 - Learners are now able to access the files against RPL Assessments in the Learner Portal

AX-7415 - Online Assessment responses in the Learner Portal are now ordered to match the Assessment Task.
AX-7421 - We have made the system clearer when using the rollover feature for clients with ELICOS timetabling enabled. The start and end dates of the new enrolment are no longer editable as they will be determined by the linked workshop dates.
AX-7427 - Students can now choose to email the Training Administrator from the Learner Portal (as well as the trainer).
AX-7430 - We have updated our Moodle authentication plugin to use the OpenSSL library, rather than the now deprecated mcrypt library. This update is available in our resource library. This is an optional update.
AX-7436 - The qualification name when you are updating a class now links to the qualification page. The code and name have also been flipped to make this consistent with the Class view page.
AX-7443 - The widget dashboard is now standard for all clients and users. The legacy dashboard has been removed.
AX-7462 - Finance models are now correctly honouring the Min and Max item values when calculating the invoice amounts. You will see this change when you manually invoice a student with a finance model applied to the enrolment.
AX-7350 - Fixed an issue where linked contacts, such as payer or employer, were sometimes not coming up in the contact merge interface. We also fixed an issue where a merged and removed payer was not being updated against contacts that they were set as the payer for.
AX-7402 - An issue has been fixed in the Assessment Engine where a test would auto select an answer (on a duplicated question) that was previously used/submitted in the test.
AX-7414 - A bug has been fixed in the Assessment Plan & Workshop Type Assessment Scheduling. The Plus/Minus values can now be removed without having to reset it back to "immediately"

March 13th 2019
From the Ideas Forum
AX-7164 - Clients can now customise their template categories! The default categories you are currently using will already be added for you. Go to Settings > Template Categories to edit.
AX-7355 - When issuing a certificate, a warning will now appear against any student record where fees are outstanding. This will not prevent you from issuing the certificate, it will only be a visual warning. If you would like this warning to be a little stronger, there is a system flag in the RTO / VET tab labelled "Issue certificates only if fully paid". If on, this setting will prevent the issuing of full certificates, both accredited and non-accredited, for students with outstanding fees. Note that this setting was previously located at the bottom of the Additional Options tab but has been moved.
AX-7125 - Added the ability to view / print assessment results for students by the attempt.
AX-7156 - The unit count has been added to Qualifications in the Online Assessments Mapping page. Units will also display the number of elements that they are comprised of, and Assessment Tasks will display the number of items.
