7 min

At LearnWorlds, we strive to provide the best online course platform for you by continuously developing new features based on your feedback. Our goal is to shape the future of education, not just be a part of it. To accomplish this, we work together with our amazing customers in a collaborative effort.

That’s why we launched the You Ask. We Deliver. product updates — a recurring series of posts highlighting customer-requested features and improvements. We want to demonstrate how much we appreciate user feedback — and what better way to do that than showing exactly how your suggestions are shaping the future of the platform!

Here are some of the great new features and improvements we’ve implemented in Q1 2023 based on your feedback. We hope you enjoy them!

Delivered with ❤️ for a lot of you.

8. Control the order of Appearance for bundles inside a Bundle list section

Previously, when a Bundle list section was used on your school’s website, you had no control over the order of appearance for the bundles. This is no longer the case as you can customize their order by setting a number on the “Appearance order” field of every bundle.

9. Automatically navigate users to a specific Section using Anchors in URLs

The Anchor name of a Page section can now be used on the URL of that Page, preceded by a hash sign (#) to directly navigate the user to this specified section.

Delivered with ❤️ for a lot of you.

17. Automatically logout idle users with the new Force logout setting

If you want to restrict your users from staying signed in for an extended period of time while being inactive or idle, you are now able to use the new Force logout setting found in the Sign in/up settings of Site Builder and also configure it with an Idle time threshold of minutes and a Pre-logout message duration of seconds.
