01 Jan New Year, New Mentoring Features!
Our goal for the newest version (3.0.6) of the eMentorConnect® mentoring platform was to make it easier for more people to use our tools, and connect with mentors regardless of language or accessibility differences.
We’re a global company. Many of our clients and partners are multi-national and thousands of our users are in global mentoring programs. So, to improve the experience of our global users, the latest release of the eMentorConnect platform now gives users the option to translate their tool and work in their native language.
Your participants can now choose from over 50 languages to work in. Users select their preferred language the tool is automatically translated when they login. Even parts of the tool that were written in another language by the admin, like learning content and the welcome message. Or responses from their partners.
Learn more about our translation capabilities read this post.
Finding a mentor and developing professionally should be available to everybody within your organization. Along with making it easier for partners to connect despite having different native languages, in this version we also made our tools more accessible for users with different abilities. We are happy to announce the eMentorConnect® platform is now compliant with WCAG 2.1 AA, ADA, Section 508 and EN 301549.
Notifications with your logo
Our admins have always been able to create custom notifications and schedule them to be sent to mentees and/or mentors based on their activity or on a specific date and time.
But now your notifications will include your logo and the program name in the subject line. We have rolled this feature out for existing clients and we’re seeing a strong uptick in opens and clicks, greatly increasing participant engagement!
