Streamlined Manager Survey Experience: Direct feedback regarding training effectiveness from the manager's perspective is incredibly valuable, and now managers will receive just one survey invitation email for each class that their direct reports attend, regardless of the number of direct reports that attended, and will retain the ability to submit feedback on an individual by individual basis.
