Modern Authoring

Improved Guestbook Lists

Guestbook lists have been expanded to support up to 10,000 characters. 

When creating a list you can paste in a long list, separating list items with semicolons. 

When a guest encounters a list in the Guestbook, if there are more than ten items in the list, the list becomes a searchable drop down.

Additional permission restrictions 

In turning this property on, anyone who is not a CAdmin will only see their own user data. Meaning that group managers, learning authors, etc. should have no more permissions than regular users do. 

In the client properties, if you set a property 'admin-user-access-only' to "TRUE", that will make this behavior happen.

Improved Generate Audio

We have updated the “Generate audio from slide notes” feature in Modern Authoring with an improved UI, capabilities, and our improved "Modern" voice library. Learn more with this feature overview, which includes voice samples.

Adjustable Playback Speed

Presentation authors can now allow their viewers to adjust the playback speed, with some caveats. The option to allow this is applied per presentation to give authors control. Learn more with this feature overview that explains how to enable it and lets you try it out.
