  • Training
  • Tracking records
  • Sending out policy updates
  • grouping modules and courses into subfolders/categories (i.e. a safety folder, an HR folder, and a work instruction folder.
  • when adding questions, being able to drag and drop the questions individually as well as the slides.

  • You are able to create groups for your employees so that you can quickly assign groups to training courses rather than grabbing employees individually each time.
  • You can import training packs in several formats and create custom quizzes either throughout the training or at the end with multiple question formats.
  • You can add surveys to your courses as well, but getting the survey data back out is not as straight forward as it should be. You have to click around to find it because just printing the results in the course does not automatically include the survey results.
  • You have no control over the passwords. Yes, the user is able to click a "Forgot Password" link on the login page, but we have had many problems with the user not receiving the email, so then they are stuck, and we have no other alternative to help them get into the system.

  • Easy creation of content
  • Simple distribution to customers and team members
  • Addition of new learners into the platform is easy and safe
  • Mindflash would be even better if it integrated with more platforms
  • I wish I could store more detailed content for my learners
  • Built-in rewards systems would be helpful

  • Mindflash is very clean and user-friendly. Very easy for learners to navigate and understand.
  • Mindflash’s reporting tool is unmatched. You can pull any type of report you could want or need.
  • Customer service is top-notch. From our Sales Executive to our CSM, all the way up to the VP, our experience has been amazing.
  • The live event/classroom training functionality is pretty basic. Would like to see options to enter date/times of training.
  • Automatic calendar invites sent to registrants for live training would be great. I think they are working on this functionality in the near future.
  • Mindflash recently changed from s courses and series structure to modules and courses. I liked it the other way, personally.

  • The user interface is clean and uncomplicated.
  • Mindflash isn't bogged down with unnecessary bells and whistles.
  • No matter what the source of your content, Mindflash converts it into one seamless presentation.
  • Tutorials are built in.
  • Their customer service are prompt and friendly.
  • The people at Mindflash listen to your suggestions to improve the product and incorporate them when they can.
  • The reporting capabilities are pretty decent.
  • Adding voiceovers from within Mindflash is easy, but unforgiving. You have to do each slide in one uninterrupted take, or do it over.
  • Mindflash doesn't handle animations in PowerPoint well. This is OK though, as animations tend to be a distraction anyway.
  • You can't delete or re-order or edit slides once they're in Mindflash. You can hide them. If re-ordering or editing is required, you have to upload a new, polished presentation.
  • Mindflash doesn't help you schedule training or re-training.
  • [Update: They fixed this! There is a new role that allows for pure read-only viewing!] There is no (non-student) role that can only view tracking information. All roles have access to managing courses.

  • Mindflash delivers course content seamlessly across multiple devices and platforms. This allows trainees to take the training on any device of their choice.
  • Mindflash lets us include quizzes to test our trainee's knowledge. The results are tracked and we can notify the organization's point person regarding any trainees that are struggling with the new information.
  • Mindflash allows us to set timelines for completion of course material and tracks those results. We can then inform the organization's point person about any trainees who are falling behind in their training.
  • Mindflash currently does not provide enough detailed reporting services. We have to export raw data and create reports that should by rights be included in Mindflash. The reporting engine really needs a lot more flexibility.
  • At this time we cannot create survey templates and apply them to courses. This is a huge drawback because we would have to create the same survey questions for all of our courses, so we simply choose not to run surveys. That is really unfortunate because we are missing out on collecting valuable feedback from our end users.
  • I believe that there needs to be another service tier between Advanced and Pro. The current feature sets and price points of Advanced and Pro are so vastly different that even though we would probably move to an intermediate offering between Advance and Pro there is nothing there to accommodate a growth phase that doesn't require the features and benefits of the Pro tier.

  • Training content management
  • Distribution and tracking of our trainees
  • Reporting
  • Integration with Salesforce using professional level software. Mindflash's limited integration to only work with the higher level of Salesforce product.
  • More brand customization for multiple product line trainings.
  • Communication of trainers using Mindflash and sales team. We have multiple trainers sending invitations for training with no way for them to communicate with our sales team when a person has completed training.

  • Organizing courses into series. If you have a set group of courses that you need groups to take (like every new employee) you can just assign these series and let them start at it.
  • Reports. It is nice to be able to see the progress people are at in the series or courses, and you can see at a glance, who failed and who passed.
  • Add-ins for courses. Their quizzes are simple to add and they help to get critical thinking into the training videos.
  • Admin: They only allow one admin account, which can be a headache. Instead of logging into my personal Mindflash I log into a shared user, that makes and assigns all the videos.
  • Agent UI: It isn't the prettiest UI and can be hard to navigate for beginners.
  • Certificates: The certificates for passing a course are just dumb. I have them all turned off and I could never see that being useful.

  • Creating and editing classes with attached quizzes is really simple.
  • It is also quite simple to add or edit an audio track for each slide. This allows us to keep people engaged and prevents them from simply skipping through the programs.
  • The historical records for each student and/or class are great.
  • It would be nice to have a copy & paste function for quiz questions that are used in multiple classes. Currently you have to start from scratch for each one.
  • Editing a narrated audio track is a challenge. I find it easier to create and edit the audio before uploading it to the system. It would be nice to eliminate that step.
  • I would love to be able to set (or reset) passwords for our users. Since we rely on using e-mail addresses as their user name I lose the ability to do so. The "Forgot Password" link usually works but the e-mails get rejected in some business e-mail systems.

  • One of the core strengths of Mindflash is undoubtedly is its ease of use. It is a very intuitive tool that any training manager can learn to use quite quickly. Additionally, Mindflash is very easy for the trainees to use as well. Trainees with even the most rudimentary of computer knowledge and skills can take training courses through Mindflash. Because it is so easy to use, trainers and trainees do not have to worry about spending inordinate amounts of time learning how to use it.
  • Mindflash's ability to automatically track trainees' progress, send trainees reminders, and record their course scores is fantastic. If you are like me, you probably do not have a surplus amount of time to manually track your trainees' progress and send reminders to them so they complete your training course. Mindflash takes care of these necessary but time-consuming tasks for you and does so well.
  • Being able to quickly view aggregated information on trainees' performance and progress should be a core strength of any LMS. Mindflash's advanced reporting aggregates and summarizes information you will want to know: the average score of trainees on a course, the amount of time trainees took to complete the course, etc. You can also quickly and easily see a list of trainees and their individual course scores. All of this information can be downloaded as well. Mindflash assists training managers by making such important information so readily available.
  • As a trainer, I want to ensure that trainees achieve proficiency before going on to the next course in a training series. Mindflash does not have the ability to stop trainees from going on to the next training course in a series if they do not secure a passing score on the proceeding course. This means that even if a trainee fails a training course in a training series, they can still go on to the next course. This creates the possibility of trainees going through an entire training series without having to master each course within the series.
  • Even though Mindflash has the ability to track trainee's course quiz scores, you cannot easily see which quiz questions were missed by which trainees. In order to see which questions each trainee missed, you have to look up their individual report. As of now, there is no ability to aggregate trainees' answers on quiz questions.
  • MIndflash has a few different quiz question types. One of the question types allows you to upload an image so can have trainees place label's next to the image in order to identify key parts of the image. Unfortunately, the image has to be really small for it to work. This really hinders one's ability to use this question type effectively.

  • Mindflash is ideally used by an organization that needs a nimble platform for the development and deployment of elearning. I've used Mindflash at two different companies for sales training, from preboarding through ongoing learning. I have also used MindFlash for the delivery of a lightweight partner program. It has performed well, regardless of use.
  • I think MindFlash is the ideal platform if you have SMEs building their own training programs, especially in a start up environment.
  • This is a harder question, because some of the areas for improvement are there for the very reason that MindFlash is such a quick and easy platform. Mindflash is not the ideal solution if you have a stable of Instructional Designers who will be building complex elearning programs.
  • MindFlash has had issues with unusual fonts.
  • I'd love to see flexibility with the quizzing tools.

  • Easy to see trainee status of who has not started, who is in progress and who has completed a course - which makes it easy to send targeted reminders
  • Easy to swap out content when updating a course
  • Easy to create a course series from individual modules
  • Many clicks to get to individual courses within a series
  • Hard to populate quizzes and the text boxes are small and you can't see everything you're writing

  • It allowed teachers, students, Salesforce users to check on status of grades, progress on tests etc.
  • I uploaded customers into system through Salesforce and Apex data loader.
  • Mindflash can be accessed by non Salesforce users as well.
  • I wish it had been a smoother process.
  • Some of the processes could be streamlined.
  • Wish it was easier to read scores in Salesforce.
