Lambda Solutions, a Totara Platinum Partner Endorses Totara 2.7 Release

Totara LMS, an industry leading learning management system tailored for corporate environments, has released their most advanced upgrade yet. Most notably, Totara 2.7 boasts impressive enhancements including a customizable interface menu, deeper functionality in the Face to Face module and greater control over the appraisals section.

“This latest release continues to build upon its innovative open source tradition with many new features and dozens of other usability improvements,” says Stewart Rogers, Director of Product Management at Lambda Solutions. “Lambda is excited to begin updates for current clients because we know Totara 2.7 will provide tremendous value to their current learning and talent development programs.”

The recent upgrade to Totara 2.7 is thanks to the culmination of Totara’s developers and the open source community.

Richard Wyles, CEO of Totara LMS adds, “There’s an enormous list of enhancements throughout the system and there are contributions large and small across the community. There is always a huge amount of work behind the scenes to improve software that the user never notices. For v2.7 there was a big effort on improved usability and accessibility and that focus is ongoing.”

Below is a brief overview of key enhancements in Totara 2.7:

New Customizable Interface Menu

With Totara, 2.7 administrators now have the ability to customize contents of the user menu directly from the interface. Just like a game of Tetris, users have the ability to move around the pieces of the menu so it displays exactly what they need in a manner that prioritizes their needs.

Improved Face to face Module

The Face to Face Module now allows users to benefit from a waitlist function that permits users to sign-up for sessions that have not been released or are full. There is also a new enrollment plugin that enables users to sign up for a face to face session in a single step.

Enhancements to Appraisals

The new Appraisals Section provides users with improved efficiency when adding and removing learners from appraisals. With a new results and summary page at the end of a completed appraisal, users can check data and step backward to modify information if incorrect.
