Lessonly by Seismic
Authorizing Lessonly within Ambition allows a manager to add Lessonly lessons to coaching agendas for employees to complete. A manager will be able to select from any public, published lessons and add them to coaching agendas. When selecting a lesson, there is no filtering for lessons assigned to a particular employee(s), but rather the manager will be presented with a list of all public, published lessons that can be added into the coaching agenda.
If a Lessonly lesson is added to a coaching agenda, the employee will be presented with the selected lesson(s) to complete. Lessons that employees interacts with in Ambition will count towards lesson reporting in Lessonly.
A Lessonly admin will be able to access the subdomain and API key needed to authorize Lessonly in Ambition.
Users with the "Integrations: Edit" permission will be able to access the Integrations tab.
