Welcome to iQualify!

On your Create dashboard you can create, edit, and publish content.

With author access comes the ability to create new content and edit it at any time. All content created is accessible from the Content tab.

You will only see content in this tab that you have created, or content that you have been invited to collaborate on. The exception to this is if you also have manager access. You will then be able to see (but not edit) published content from anyone in your organisation so you can create (activate) classes from it.

Before we dive into the details, let's take a quick look at how content and classes fit together in iQualify.

Creating and editing content

When you create new content using the Create New Content button, it will appear on your Create dashboard, with a status showing that it's Under construction. You can come back and edit it as many times as you like by selecting the Edit button on the content row.

When you have finished creating or editing content, you can publish it. Once published, the content can be activated by a person with manage access to create a class. See How to create a class activation for more details.

Published content shows as Published in the content row. It will also show the number of Class activations for that content.

Editing published content

Once your content has been published, you can make further changes or additions by selecting Edit. If you're making further changes to published content, the content row will show Under construction. If you publish the content again, your changes will show to all learners in scheduled, current or past class activations. Read more about editing and republishing content.

Duplicating content

Content can be duplicated at any time. Duplicating content creates an exact copy of it, but it is treated like brand new content, completely separate from the original. Publishing duplicate content does not replace the original content in any class activations as it creates an entirely new item that classes can be created from. For more information on when to edit or when to duplicate content see the article here.

Archiving content

The Archive tab holds any content that has been placed in an archived state. This function allows you to clean-up the view of your dashboard, and hide content that you no longer wish to use. If you mistakenly archive your content, you can always un-archive it from the Archive tab.

Archiving published content will remove it from the My content tab for manager users, so no further class activations can be created from it. Archiving content in Create does not affect any scheduled, current, or past activations.
