Error messages on checkout and login pages now editable


Default checkout and login error messages are now editable in Site > Custom Text.

Most importantly, this will enable instructors who have schools in other languages to translate those messages along with other areas of their site. It will also give you the ability to provide more details to your students if desired, or simply customize the message to your liking.

This update allows you to modify the following:

  • myTeachable signup error messages:

  • Non-myTeachable signup error messages:

  • Email already taken messages:

The new strings in Custom Text are:

  • error_message_header
  • email_already_used
  • password_too_short
  • password_confirmation_mismatch

You can use the Find function to locate each string. Learn more about using custom text on your Teachable school here.

Quizzes now available on our iOS app


Quizzes are now available on our iOS app. Students who enter the quiz will see each question one by one:

They’ll be able to select an answer (which won’t be recorded until they click the Submit button):

After submitting their answer, they’ll see whether their selection was right (green check mark) or wrong (red X), and be able to continue to the next question.

Once they reach the end, they’ll see their score and be able to return to the lecture.

New unenroll-user Zapier action


A new Teachable action on Zapier allows you to unenroll students from your courses.

This action will allow you to have more control over how students consume your content--whether you want to make one-day free trials available or use it in a different way. Keep an eye on our blog for a post teaching you one cool way to implement this action!

New auto-play and auto-advance toggles in Settings


New toggles in Settings > General allow you to decide whether to auto-play the first video when students enter a lecture, and/or auto-complete the lecture when students finish the final video.

Toggling these settings ON will cause the automatic actions to happen. By default, for existing schools both of the toggles are off.

For new schools, autoplay is turned on by default while autocomplete will be turned off by default.

Any schools that used custom code to autoplay videos or auto-complete lectures before this update should remove that code now so it does not interfere with the new function.

Authors can upload video captions


We’ve fixed a bug that was preventing authors from being able to upload video captions. Going forward, they can upload captions for their lecture videos just like owners can. The captions feature is available for schools on any plan, but authors can only be added on the Basic plan and up.

See more about uploading video captions in the Knowledge Base.

Customize the Enroll Now button inside homepage editor


The homepage enroll button can now be edited directly within the homepage block editor, inside the Homepage Hero Header block where you add the background.

In this area, you can customize the text and the URL of the button, as well as turn the “Show Button” toggle on or off to remove or reinstate the enroll button.

Other buttons across your site are editable inside the Site > Custom Text area. Learn more about using custom text in the Knowledge Base.

Editable “Launching Soon” custom text string


School owners can now edit the Launching Soon custom text on a homepage that appears when a school is unpublished.

You can find this text inside Site > Custom Text, in the Homepage area.

This is particularly helpful for owners who translate their schools into other languages. For example, here it is translated into French:

Restore deleted pricing plans and coupons


Prior to this update, if you deleted a pricing plan or coupon, the deletion was permanent. This update allows you to view and restore past pricing plans and coupons.

If you have deleted pricing plans in the past, you’ll now see a Show deleted pricing plans link at the bottom of the pricing plans area.

After you click that link, you’ll be brought to an area where you can see your deleted pricing plans. Simply click the teal Restore button to make them active again.

Coupons work in a similar way, with a link to past coupons at the bottom of the section.

Again, click Restore to make the coupons active again.

One good use case for this update is if you close a course (accomplished by deleting pricing plans) and then reopen it later, you won’t have to generate new links for marketing purposes. Instead, simply restore your old plans and coupons, and your previous links will work again.

VAT number input at checkout


Customers located in the EU automatically have a value-added tax (VAT) applied to their purchases during checkout. This update allows VAT-exempt entities to input their ID number and remove the tax.

The option appears beneath the order review section here:

Once a valid VAT ID number is applied, the tax row in their receipt will disappear and their purchase total will be updated. If the number is invalid, an error message will appear.

When their purchase is complete, the receipt they are sent via email will look like this, with VAT numbers recorded:

Confirm Email inbox action now shown in Gmail previews


This update makes it even easier for students to confirm their email addresses in one click: we’ve added a Confirm Email inbox action to the Gmail previews of account confirmation emails.

Inbox actions appear to the right of email previews in Gmail, like so:

Users can simply click the Confirm Email button to confirm their email addresses without even opening the email.
