‘Fill in the Blank’ Question Type – Thrive has introduced a brand new question type! Our Fill in the Blank Questions allow the content creator to include as many “blanks” as they would like in a question prompt, and then the end user fills in each blank using their keyboard. Currently, blanks are able to have a condition of “exact”, which means a content creator can define the expected answer they’d like the User to type. Once completed, an Administrator can refer these responses, organized by blank and frequency. Those “exact” responses are also highlighted for quick recognition of who is answering as expected. While still a work in progress, we are pleased to introduce this new feature to our customers.
Additional Scoping for Time-Series In-Frame Reports – When measuring things like “Positivity” or “Communication” based upon a User’s responses, you can now trend those responses over time as compared to a group average, letting a User quickly see where they fall in with the rest in their group. This can be used for specific Schedules, an entire Program, or All-Time, which stretches across multiple Programs.
Add “Scale Labels” to PDF Downloads – PDF downloads now have easily visible upper and lower limits on Scale Reports, as defined by the text used in the CMS.
Models and Attributes to CSV Exports – All CSV Exports now contain columns for MODEL and ATTRIBUTE. The Model is assigned to a question, while the Attribute refers to the actual choice selected within the questions. This allows for most robust data analysis post Program Schedule.
Models – Significant updates were made to Models throughout the platform, to enable increase scoping and usability when creating reports based on Models.
Self-Registrations – Self-Registrations previously had a glitch in which Ownership could not be transferred. This meant that only the creator was able to edit and use the Self-Registration form. This has been fixed, and ownership can now be shared by any Administrator with ownership over the form. Woo hoo!

Articles – Content creators can now publish “Articles”, which function much like blog posts that attach to Programs and are accessible by users via their Personal Portals. These Articles can include a feature Image and Video, and also include additional attachments such as pdfs or Word documents.
File Uploading – Any type of file – whether pdf, Word, or txt – can now be uploaded to your Media Library. These can then be attached to Articles or Programs.
Attribute and Index Model Reporting – A bug had previously caused Attribute and Index Model Reports to show only group reporting. This has been resolved, and these type of reports can now be scoped to User and Group Levels, and Schedule, Program, and All-Time Report Levels.

Personal Portals v1.0 – Personal Portals are the first Thrive User facing part of the Thrive platform, besides the actual Experiences of course 🙂 Right now Portals are a place for Users to compare their responses to others – soon they’ll be the place where people go to interact with each other and view insights that help them improve their actions and decisions.
Include Model Codings on CSV Exports – If a Model is attached to a Question, the Model and the associated coding is now included in CSV Exports, making for more powerful data analysis.
Removed Markdown from PDF Exports – Any Markdown used in Program Descriptions and Question Prompts are now removed from PDF Exports, improving readability for the end user.
Require pressing “Enter” button to submit Multiple Choice Response – Before, when a Multiple Choice was selected, Experiences continued automatically. Several users have noted this as inconvenient while increasing the possibility of submitting the wrong response by mistake. So we have it easier for you!

Custom Messaging for Brandings – Brandings can now include custom messages for completed Experiences, correct / incorrect quiz responses, and completed required open essays.
Scale Minimum Value = 0 – The numeral “0” can now be used as the lower value of a scale question’s range.
Signed-In As – Display the email address that is currently signed into the platform.
Image Upload – Clarify that images can either require a button to continue, or automatically continue after a set duration of time.

“Press Enter” to continue functionality when Experiences are accessed via desktop, allowing for smoother and faster user interaction.
Unenroll Functionality – this allows Users receiving Thrive Experiences to Unenroll from the Scheduled Program the Experience is attached to. This will prevent any additional Experience in the Program from being delivered to that User. This is optional functionality that is set by the Administrators when creating a Scheduled Program.
Audio Files as a new Media Type. Administrators can upload any MP3 File and include it within an Experience as a Media frame.
Attribute Model Reports – This allows an Administrator to attach an Attribute Model (for example, “Positivity”) and various numerical values to questions throughout Program(s). When an Attribute Model Report is added to an Experience, it will display that Users total score divided by the highest possible score as a %.
Delivery via Email and SMS simultaneously as a option for delivering Experiences. When selected, this will result in the User receiving both a text message and an email containing a link to their new Experience, allowing them to complete whichever they see first. As always, once completed, they will be notified of this if they happen to click on the Experience link via the other delivery method.
Search Bar – Each page of the Thrive Platform now allows Admins to search terms within a specific item, such as Experiences and Program, as well as Universally, which will display a table of all items containing the searched term, with each one identified by their specific item.
Improved look of In-Frame Reports, such as removing unnecessary axis lines on bar charts, to improve overall readability.
Pre-timed images are now defined in seconds, as opposed to milliseconds, in order to create a more natural, user friendly experience for Content Administrators.
Improved UI when creating Multiple Choice Questions to reduce the chance that an Administrator accidently adds another Choice when they are ready to Create the question.
Media Upload – Improved transparency when new Media is selected or dropped for upload. Administrators now see a Progress Bar, and are then notified when the file is uploaded, saving, and completed and ready to use.
Uploading of Images into Media Library – Administrators are now required to select if an Image will be Pre-Timed before continuing to the next frame or require the User receiving the Experience to press a “Continue” button to move onto the next frame. Prior to this update, both options were required, resulting in confusion, as well as unnecessary requirements.
Error Messages when incompatible Media Files are attempted to be uploaded into the Media Library so that Administrators are immediately notified of this.
Nothing! We’re pushing full steam ahead, adding to and improving the Thrive Platform.
