Presentation   2017   March

March

At Foliotek, we work hard to provide the best assessment and portfolio software possible.  To do that, we make changes every week.  Sometimes we fix things that don't work, other times we release new features to improve your experience.  Below you will find a description of the changes we have made this month.

 

3.27.2017

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • We made some improvements in the way very large images are handled in Foliotek Presentation.  Now, it adjusts the size of the image to conserve file storage space.  This is the first step in some improvements for image handling in Presentation.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • There were a couple of issues with ID page background images.
  • Uploaded videos were not being displayed for use in the portfolio editor Video Gizmo or Files area.
  • Some students were getting an error when opening an element of their portfolio, this was caused by a . in the file name.
  • There were a couple visual issues when purchasing a new presentation account.

What we're working on

Watch for these items to be released in the next few weeks:

  • We are making changes to Projects.  Users will be allowed to upload a file or use an external resource, instead of just an image, for the Project cover.
