Simplified activity logging
9 Sep 2019
Today we updated the way your learning activities are logged to make using Physioplus easier. Now when you click on a course link to view a resource or video, this item will be added to your activity log and immediately set as "Completed". So now you won't need to repeatedly visit your dashboard or activity log to update activity engagements in the process of completing a course. Remember if you wish to add a reflective note to an activity you can still do this by editing that activity on your dashboard or activity log in the usual way. Thanks!
