As soon as you are ready to assign a course, generate a link and share it with learners via any channel — email, slack, corporate messenger, you name it.
Note: sharing via email gives access to view the course. People who you share a course with will not be able to enter your 7taps admin console, edit or delete the course, view the report, or perform any other administrator’s actions. You remain the only admin of the 7taps course and account.
Do the learners have to sign in or install any app?
No. Sharing via link is super convenient for learners because they don't have to sign in to 7taps or download any app. The link opens in the recipient's browser, whether mobile or desktop.
Can I share a course outside my organization?
When to use sharing via link
There are multiple cases when you would prefer to use sharing via link, here are just a few of them:
Providing training for a large team
Sharing a course outside your organization, e.g. training for resellers or for customers
Sharing with a small team of colleagues
Sharing an onboarding course for new staff
Sharing information for fun 🎉
When not to use it
Sharing via link is not a good idea when you need a detailed view on learner performance. Unlike sharing via email, when sharing via link you don't get a report on learner stats.
Are there any other ways to share the course?
Yes, you can use the 'share via email' feature. In this case every recipient will get an email with a unique link to the course. Sharing via email will allow you to see a report on how each individual employee performs on this course. Read more about sharing via email.
Is sharing via a link secure?
Sharing via link is secure. However, you should keep in mind that 7taps doesn't require users to sign in, so where a recipient gets a link to the course and then for whatever reason decides to post it to social media, everyone with this link will be able to open the course.
In the event that your course is shared with an unintended audience and you want to stop this, you should delete the course. After you delete the course no one (including yourself!) will be able to access it any more.
If you think you have a security issue, or something going wrong with the course, sharing, or otherwise let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why the link is so long?
This is done for security purposes. By using long links, random characters, a mixture of upper and lowercase, we eliminate the unlikely event that someone could 'guess' the link to your course by randomly typing those characters.
Can I share same course via link and by email?
Yes you can. Read more about sharing via email here.
