In this release, we introduce two new major features as well as several minor ones. This release also includes plenty of bug fixes and performance improvements. Let's dig in shall we?
Online Admin Portal
You finally have a more flexible way to manage all your libraries, cloud ebooks, and hosted ebooks. That is through a new web-based admin portal. That's right! Just go to www.kotobee.com/admin and log in with your serial.
With this portal you can have control over your account wherever you go, even through your mobile browser. Note the portal layout is not mobile responsive yet, but will be soon.
You have self-assessment questions in your ebook. Your users can practice on those questions and see their respective scores.
Now you, as the book owner, can see reports of the answers of all your users. This happens through the new Reports menu available under your library or cloud ebook. You may see your users' answers collectively in the form of charts, or you may see a specific user's answers.
This feature is extremely useful for you if you want to monitor your users' understanding and progress.
Backend API Enhancements
Some enhancements have been made to our API backend, such as a way to retrieve the question reports explained above.
You now have a way to hide the favorites tab and favorites button in case you don't want it.
More Templates and Enhancements
More templates have been added for you into Kotobee Author. There are now guidance buttons in Kotobee Author's ebook templates that help you easily copy or duplicate certain elements efficiently. Those buttons appear once you hover over those elements.
In case you're enabling the "Go to page #" button, you may now add an offset in order to map the page number to the actual book's page number.
