CADLearning Gets Dark and Light Modes

CADLearning Gets Dark and Light Modes

A new feature will soon be available to all our CADLearning users – the option to switch between dark and light modes. Simply navigate to your user profile settings to choose your desired appearance.

Dark mode is designed for those who work at night or in low-light. It also enhances accessibility for those with visual impairments, migraines, or other optical disorders. On the other hand, light mode is designed for those who work with lots of detail or read large blocks of text.

Adding this frequently requested feature continues to put personalization and accessibility at the forefront of the CADLearning experience.

We’ll also be working with our partners who manage portals and our customers to ensure their branding looks ideal in either mode.

We’re excited to see what our customers think of the new experience and can’t wait to see what’s up next for CADLearning!

Monday Tips: Connect Boards + Mirror Columns

Monday Tips: Connect Boards + Mirror Columns is designed to save us time, streamline our processes and projects, and help us keep track of all the work we do each day. But a product is only as good as our ability to use it. So, we wanted to share some helpful tips and ways to put them into practice.

Tracking your progress on your quarterly KPIs board just got a lot easier thanks to Connect Boards and Mirror Columns.

These features let you easily sync information – like current statuses and due dates – from multiple boards onto one. So, when you change information in one board, it automatically updates that information in others without the hassle of doing double the work!

Looking for an update? Our teams have them!

From the Content Team…

We’ve been hearing lots of chatter around Autodesk Construction Cloud. Customers are letting us know they use it and have been asking about it. So, it’s top of mind for many of us right now – especially the Content Team. And they’re moving right along with the updates for it. They feel they’ll have enough lessons for a soft release, potentially, by AU. So, stay tuned!

The team has also been working on a board that will serve as a roadmap for visibility across teams. The new board will show everyone what is coming, what is in progress, and what has been put on the backburner.

From the Dev Team…s

The Dev Team has been working on certificates, which will give users something to print out after completing goals. Having something to hold or hang up to show off your accomplishments helps with employee growth.

They’re also continuing to develop dark and light themes for the portal. Users will be able to switch to the theme of their choice. So say goodbye to that building now.

Expect some other important updates on this sprint soon!

Once again, our teams have stepped up and are putting in lots of hard work!

A September update from Microsoft revealed they will resume the retirement of Basic Authentication for legacy protocols. Meaning, any email client that doesn’t fully support Exchange won’t work.

Today, we are announcing that we are restarting the program to end the use of Basic Auth in Exchange Online. Beginning October 1, 2022, we will begin to disable Basic Auth in all tenants, regardless of usage.

If you aren’t already, please use one of the supported email clients listed below.

Autodesk Reveals Brand Update

Autodesk Reveals Brand Update

Earlier this month, Autodesk introduced a new look and feel for their brand, including a new logo, colors, and imagery.

“This change is the first of several bold moves we’re making as a company to reimagine the Autodesk brand – one that underscores our belief that a better world can be designed and made for all,” remarked Fred Saunders, Vice President of Brand and Social Impact at Autodesk.

The new logo is a simplified version of its predecessor. And their new imagery features abstract 3D geometric forms created by focusing on parts of the symbol in the new logo.

Plus, the Autodesk blue that we’ve seen for years has been updated to black and white. Alongside those primary colors, two detail grays and four accent colors – clay, plant, iris, and gold – have been added to their color palette.

“We’re looking forward to sharing additional elements of our reimagined brand in the future. This will include new product identities and icons that will help to visually differentiate our range of products across industries and make our icons more easily distinguishable,” Saunders continued.
