Quick Statistics

We’ve added new stats to the Dashboard so you can get a quick summary at a glance. See the total number of users, total sign ups in the past 7 days and total sessions in the last 7 days.

More control over your branding

You can now decide what colour your buttons and links should be, to make your portal the perfect reflection of your brand.

Go to Settings > Branding to start customising.

More assignment info at a glance

We’ve added new labels to the assignment overview pages and student assignment pages so you can view the details quickly and easily. Plus you can see more information before you’ve even opened the assignment.


Go to Assignment and hover over the grey icons to view the creation date, user group and course description.

Click View Assignment to see information about your assignments activation date and settings.

From there, click on a user's name to see their individual assignment, complete with information about time spent, items completed, assessment scores and more.

Sort and filter your assignments

It’s now even easier to find what you’re looking for.

On your Assignments page you can now easily search through existing assignments either by name or using filters.

Watch this space for sort and filter options being added to other areas of the site.

Mobile-friendly portal

We’ve made more of our pages mobile optimised, so you can do more from your smartphone or tablet.

Go to the Dashboard on mobile to see overview statistics of your portal activity, or check out the Assignments and Courses pages to scroll through your items.

Update to Spaced Learning

We’ve had a major update of our spaced repetition algorithms to make the system more reliable and the learning experience more personalised.

Add spaced learning content to your assignments to see how it can benefit your users.

Book a call direct from your portal

We’ve added a Speak to us button to the portal menu. If you have any questions you can now book a call with our Account Manager Manisha in just a few clicks.

  2. Assignments = All the Assignments for that user and progress

  3. Spaced Learning = See what users have included in their spaced repetition logs as well as their historical attempts

  4. Administration = Add custom attributes such as 'Department' to a users profile

We're starting a changelog

Big news today, we're starting a public changelog so you're always up to date with all the updates, improvements and fixes for the site.

Even though we work on making Synap better all the time, sometimes it may seem that not much is happening. This changelog is here to improve that very important part of the communication between you and us.

Whenever we change something you'll receive an update in the widget.
