For my team, my main goal is: how can I make engaging content in the shortest amount of time. We have Articulate but under no circumstances are we to use Storyline. We use Rise 100% of the time. With a lot of the shortcomings, this is forced us to not only evaluate our training, but our development process and how our learners are even accessing our content. We have courses that were built one way but we are re-thinking the reasoning behind that, using the data from our LMS and feedback from our learners to identify better solutions. Sure 7taps seems a little too straightforward but it forced us to use it in a way that makes sense now and our learners really love. I am almost at the point where I am thinking maybe I don't need an authoring tool at all and just a tool kit of different products (Iorad, ThingLink, Genially, Vimeo, and Descript), mesh them together and create really great, engaging courses our learners like to interact with and build assessment right in our LMS when needed

I am also breathless with dismay that, years into this thread discussion/request, a member of Staff came to the group to ask why we might need/want clickable image links in Rise...and expected the customer to take time out busy schedules to provide specific examples.  This is such a basic, obvious feature...I can't tell if they were stalling for more time or if the developers truly don't understand the business their customers are in.

You are right! Insulting to have to explain why we might need image links!

Problem is, it is easy to say we're dropping Articulate and going elsewhere. But not so easy to do when we have hundreds of courses to maintain. And where do we find the time to learn new software and train team members while we have many courses in development in Rise and Storyline. We know that and they know it too. Let's call some truckers over!!  :)

I agree and have, for years now. The only reason that I've stuck with Articulate is because I felt, well, stuck. But now that I'm beginning to truly feel that I'm a sucker, I'm thinking that this "bad marriage" may need ending... we'll see. For the life of me, I can't fathom why Articulate would want push customers to the brink.

I'll add that I am very disappointed with the SLOW innovation and updates to Rise. It has so much more potential and promise, but there's been very little done to it in recent years.

Very basic UX and developer UX improvements haven't been made. I mean, I can't even save colors to my color palette?!?! I need to paste a color code each time. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

This is actually infuriating. It's beyond simple, and I don't understand how this function hasn't been added in over 4 years! Compared to other rapid development platforms Rise is bland, and far behind in terms of functionality.

It's such a basic feature I can even do it in this comment - but not in a course for learners!
