At Convergence Training, our goal is to provide a superior software and support experience for every customer. With that in mind, our team works constantly to add features and functionality that make work easier, more efficient, and enhance software performance.
While this release consists mostly of behind the scenes fixes and enhancements, here are three key items that are included:
Note: Your LMS may not yet be updated to this specific version. Please contact our Support team for information regarding when your system will be updated with the latest version.
These notes are generally organized in the order of the menu to which the item corresponds within the LMS.
“Upcoming Training” Widget – Display Training that is Due Within a Set Number of Days
The “Upcoming Training” widget, available on the User’s Home tab Dashboard, can now be configured by an administrator, to display only the training that is due within a given number of days. To set this, enter a number in the “Due Within # Days” field in the widget setup.
Previously the “Upcoming Training” widget displayed all training with a future due date, even if the activity was complete. This was causing users to re-complete recurring training sooner than necessary. Now, only training that is not yet complete (Incomplete, or In Progress), and is due within the set number of days, will display on the widget.

TRACKING AND COMPLETIONS
Import Completions Wizard Includes Competent Persons
The Import Completions feature now provides the ability to include Competent Persons as part of the imported completion record. This is particularly useful for our MSHA LMS clients who want to import completion records that indicate a competent person. The Completions Import Spreadsheet now includes columns and instructions for importing Competent Persons, and Competent Contacts.

QR Code Displays on the Certificate with Cut-out Report
A QR code now displays on any Certificate with Cut-out Report generated from the Convergence Contractor LMS. A contractor can present the certificate to an administrator, who can scan the QR code with a mobile device to verify that training is completed. No additional mobile app is required. The administrator can view details about the user including the employee’s name, profile picture, job title, team, and completed training.
Please refer to the following updated articles:
Certificate with Cutout Report to view a sample of the report and how an administrator can print the report and scan the QR code to view a list of their completions.
Contractors and Visitors: Print Completion Certificate to view instructions to the user to run and print the report.
