Key Lessonly Features

  • Deeper Data: Apart from the usual reporting module, with stats like completion data and quiz results, Lessonly also lets you dive into specific lessons, users, or groups. It presents all this in a visually-compelling way, through neat-looking graphs and charts.
  • Smart Groups: Employees can be added automatically to custom groups in a single swing, making it easier for people to get the content they need, when they need it.
  • In-Person Training: Training that happens outside of the platform can also be tracked for attendance and activities in Lessonly.

Lessonly Implementation

All Lessonly plans provide you with a Customer Experience Manager that will guide your team through every step of the process.

Lessonly Customer Success

Should problems arise, Lessonly has a help center and live chat support channel.

Lessonly Key Integrations

Lessonly integrates with many different apps and products, such as Salesforce, Bamboo HR, Namely, Rippling, Zenefits, and Slack. In case you don't see a vendor you like in their list of integrations, they do have an open API.

What to be aware of

Lessonly Pricing

Although Lessonly has two available plans (Pro & Pro+Coaching), the pricing for them isn't disclosed on their website. The difference between one plan or another is mainly having additional modules and features like Lessonly Practice, conversations, and certifications.
