A new site management feature was developed, enabling admins to track and assess the progress of site modules. Admins could easily view the completion status of the five modules required for each site, ensuring transparency and effective monitoring of site-specific training initiatives. Furthermore, GSL implemented a data export feature at the site level, allowing admins to generate spreadsheets containing country, site, module completion, and the date of completion. This export functionality provided comprehensive data for reporting and analysis purposes.
An event management functionality was implemented to allow admins to add events based on services or projects, region, country, and site. This comprehensive categorisation facilitated better event organisation and streamlined the event creation process. Additionally, GSL expanded the export function to include historical event data, providing administrators with valuable insights and reporting options.
To enhance the event search and booking process, GSL introduced an advanced filtration method. End staff users could now refine their search based on services or projects, region, and country, enabling them to quickly find events aligned with their specific needs. Staff users could then book events and add dietary requirements. A series of reminders are sent to the staff user. Admin for event were able to track attendees via a QR code system at the actual event which once scanned, logged the user’s attendance. Again, this data could be exported for internal analysis.
Furthermore, GSL worked on improving the user experience by adding additional data-driven fields to event registration. Users were now required to provide information such as SSO Number, Job Title, employer details, and job description, enabling a more comprehensive understanding of the user base.
GSL introduced distinct user roles, including country admins, regional admins, and global admins. Country admins were assigned to specific countries and had access only to elements relevant to their country. Regional admins had oversight of multiple countries within their region, while global admins retained access to all elements. This granular user role structure ensured efficient management and control over the platform. End staff users could also access the system to allow for booking of events and finding specific and global documents relevant to their needs.
Recognising the need for multilingual capabilities, GSL integrated the WPML Multilingual Plugin into PDRLeadership.com. This plugin allowed for seamless translation of website content into multiple languages. Initially, GSL implemented support for English, French, German, and Spanish, ensuring that users from different regions could access the website in their preferred language. The translations were provided by GE Renewables, and GSL worked closely with their team to incorporate the translated content into the website’s front-end user interface.
