Security Journey Administrative Features Updates 

We’re excited to introduce new administrative features to the Security Journey Platform, including updates to Assignment Management and Reporting Enhancements.

We have several new updates to the ability to manage assignments: 

Duration-Based Assignments – This method efficiently manages long-term training programs such as new hire onboarding and role-based training. These assignments have rolling completion dates based on the date enrolled and automatically enroll learners who meet the assignment criteria. 

Restricted Paths - Enables Admins to create training assignments that are only visible to the learners assigned. Read more about Restricted Paths here

Learner Attribute-Based Assignments – Admins can now create assignments based on learner role, team, business unit, or manager, including: 

  • Business Unit 
  • Job Role 
  • Company
