Release notes May 2019

Explore all the recent updates to the Pluralsight platform. You can find an ongoing feed of all courses we release on our Twitter feed, @allthecourses.

Pluralsight has a new look!

Find the content you need today with Browse

It’s now easier to find the content that matters to you most—including cloud, machine learning, and more. Check out Browse to see what’s new!

The new Browse experience is live to all users.

Get where you need to be, faster, with the new navigation

You may notice a new look beyond Browse! If you’re seeing a new Pluralsight experience when you log in, we've simplified our look to improve your experience! Here's a quick tour of what's new.

Note: The new navigation is a beta experience that’s slowly being sent to users over the next several weeks. If you don’t have the new look yet, it’s on its way. Please reach out to support@pluralsight.com if you need assistance.

1. Use enhanced search in the top navigation to discover topics you're interested in. Click the home icon in the top left to return to your homepage.Search on Pluralsight


2. Easily access channels, bookmarks, and notifications in the top-right navigation. 

Enterprise users, you’ll see Q&A in the top right as well.

Hover over your avatar picture to find a drop-down menu with your profile, notes, history, and account and subscription settings.


3. At the bottom of the app, you can get support and send feedback. You can also find our mobile & offline apps as well as how to become an author in the footer.


4. Plan admins and team managers

Don't worry, your admin tools are still in the same place. 

You can still dive into your dashboard, analytics, teams and more using the left-hand navigation. 

Click the Home icon on the left side of the top navigation to view your learner homepage.


Unlike the new navigation experience, the following updates are released to all Pluralsight users.

    Based on your access and ownership of the channel, here are the actions you might find in the ellipsis menu. Please note that some options are only available to business plan users.
    • Join (available to non-members)

Search

  • If you make a typo when searching, we’ll try to guess the term you were aiming to search for. Clicking the suggested term takes you to the search results page for it.
  • You’ll also see a list of the newest courses for a given topic at the top of your search results page. For example, check out the results for javascript to see newest courses at the top of the page.
