You are probably wondering what the Catalog team has been working on recently and what other developments we are planning until the end of 2021.
To recap on our latest projects, we just released some registration improvements that make the ‘sign in’ option more prominent and provide a cleaner design. We made this change because we have heard from a lot of you that students don’t find the ‘sign in here’ option and often register a new account even if they already have one. For this reason, we turned the link into a more eye-catching button and also added some minor design modifications. Let us know what you think!
In the meantime, the team has also started to work on the next new feature: the shopping cart. The shopping cart will enable students to purchase and enroll in multiple listings (courses or programs) at the same time, only with a few clicks.
After that, what’s next? We will move on to developing a ‘bulk purchase’ feature, which allows individuals to purchase and distribute enrollments for multiple students in a single listing.
Watch the roadmap for specific updates regarding these projects, as well as the Catalog release notes. Both of those places are where you’ll find details about updates as we are getting closer to finishing off these developments.
We hope you’re as excited about these features as we are! As always, these new features will get released to Beta first and you will have ample time to check them out and provide us with feedback.
