Overall Satisfaction with Lessonly

It’s being used across the whole organization (sales, operations, events, marketing, finance, business development, HR, and other departments) for on-boarding, policy distribution and acknowledgment, role training, and as a reference library.

It keeps us in sync with each other (acting as “the source” of almost all company information on processes, best practices, and policies), acts as a key roadmap/resource in every employee’s on-boarding experience, and will soon be our way of storing debriefs on product experiments (for historical context so we can make smarter decisions on how we innovate our business going forward). We also use it more and more as a tool for democratizing the process of documenting best practices, sharing knowledge, and creating training experiences.
  • Responds to user experience feedback and is transparent about their development road map.
  • Supports clients in a collaborative creative way, gaining insight into business practices and providing thoughtful suggestions and guidance.
  • Practices what they preach. They use their product for training their own staff and for sharing information with clients. They naturally lead by example. But they also aren’t flawless (occasional typos or formatting errors) and that humanness is really refreshing and authentic.
  • Integrated time estimates -- rather than making creators write out an estimate every time a lesson is created, why not build that into the architecture of the lesson (as a module at the top of the lesson page). It could even adjust automatically based on actual completion time.
  • More formatting capabilities. Totally get the need to keep it simple, but just a few more features would make a world of difference. A slightly larger title font, the ability to underline with a built-in button.
  • Another user interface idea -- offering an alt text option so image captions don’t have to be super long. (We try to provide text descriptions for images, and this limits what you can do with a caption.)
  • User permissions update. A class of user that can assign freely, but have limitations on creator / editor permissions (able to edit specified lessons, but not all or nothing).
  • Ability to edit image names in the image library.
  • Ability to specify the order in which a learner sees the lessons you’re assigning if they’re not all in one path. Right now it auto-sorts by lesson age. The suggestion is typically to create a path, but our experience has shown a demand for something that looks more like the learn library, rather than a vertical list, which strongly implies order even if you’re not literally locking learners into it.
  • Sorry so many things! I LOVE Lessonly I just also have a lot of opinions :)
  • Haven’t assessed impact quantitatively, but qualitatively/anecdotally, new employees LOVE this resource.
Amazing customer support people. Top of the line.
We literally haven’t used anything else besides Google Drive (docs / sheets) and an informal system of in-person shadowing and it is far better than that combination!!
