Incorrect browser emulation settings may cause display issues

May 4, 2017

While many users and administrators may be using Internet Explorer 11, we have had incidents where EnergyU was not displaying correctly due to older emulations settings for the browser. With the browser open, use the function key F12 to open the developer tools window. Select the Emulation tab and verify that your Document mode and User agent string are using versions 10 or higher (11 or edge).

Please work with your IT department if you do not have the required setting selections.

Reset User Training Data button is back

May 4, 2017

The Reset User Training Data button is back! This button allows resetting of multiple users.

  • Click the User icon
  • Click Reset User Training Data button
  • Locate and select the users you wish to reset
  • Click the Next button
  • Select the type of data you wish to reset (courses, curricula or certifications)
  • Check the boxes next to the items to be reset
  • Click the Next button and verify your selections as listed (NOTE: There is no “undo” for resets)
  • Click the Submit button

Important Update on Upgrade

May 2, 2017

We have temporarily removed the button for Reset User Training Data in order to do further testing of this feature. This button allowed resetting of multiple users. While this button is disabled you may still be reset individual users as normal. We will let you know when the multiple user reset feature is once again available.

Update on the EnergyU Upgrade

May 1, 2017

Using IE, we have had a couple people unable to export ad hoc reports since the upgrade. Within a single company there may only be a couple users who experience this issue, so it is definitely related in some way to the computer/permissions. We are currently trying to determine what the exact cause of this issue. Please notify MEA Technical Support if you have problems exporting reports.

There is a browser setting in IE that can be changed to speed up ad hoc reporting. You will want to UNCHECK the box for Display intranet sites in Compatibility view. See the screen shots below showing the selection of Compatibility View Settings under the Tools dropdown, and unchecking the box.

There is one more issue that has been reported with IE; the occasional inability to type in a field. This is not new to the upgrade and was sometimes experienced in Version 8. This will sometimes occur when there are a lot of tabs open in Admin. Sometimes closing all tabs and reopening the one you want will solve the issue. Also, you can often activate the field you need to access by using the Tab or Shift+Tab keys. This issue has not been reported when using Firefox.
