Forma 3: What's New?

We're there: Forma 3 has been released to the association members and customers on October 30th!
Further minor versions will soon be released but let's take a glance into this milestone in the evolution of Forma Lms.
So what's new in this very important new version 3.0 of Forma?

A more modern and performing core

All the code has been updated to be compatible with more modern and performing versions of servers (PHP 7.4) and databases (MySQL 5.7), to make the most of the benefits of the most modern hosting infrastructures.

Many features have been cleaned up, optimized or even completely rewritten, and a new logic of "event management" will allow you to extend and integrate the platform even more easily.

A new "Dashboard" feature 

A new feature has been introduced that allows you to create a customizable home page for your platform, which will show the most relevant information for each user. It will be organized in "blocks" to show different types of information organized in an easily composable layout:

  • Course calendar
  • Course notices
  • Banner with images and videos
  • Welcome box
  • Messages.Certificates

We'll add others in future versions, or they can be easily developed with dedicated plugins for your specific needs.

New management of learning objects

The management of training materials is the heart of every online course. In this case, it's been completely rewritten for an improved user experience, better performance, and to finally introduce some highly anticipated features:

  • Quick creation of objects and folders
  • Quick movement of objects and folders with drag'n'drop
  • Multiple selection of learning objects
  • Quick drag'n'drop sorting of selected materials
  • Massive elimination of learning objects


Updated and improved interface

Forma 3 interface has been graphically restyled for a lighter and more modern look and feel.
The novelties, however, don't at the aesthetic aspect: even if the functionalities are apparently the same, the code of various front-end components has been completely rewritten and optimized to improve performance as well. In particular, the "My courses" and "Course catalog" pages have been rewritten, and the logic for displaying boxes as well as access and enrollment functions for courses have also been revised and improved.

In short, the whole platform will not only be better to look at, but also much more reactive and faster.

Other improved features

Several other features have been improved and updated, in particular:

  • "Language Management" has been refactored, with the addition of translation comparison functions and the ability to import translations directly from the server. The translation display table has been rewritten with the new components.
  • The "Meta Certificates" function has been rewritten and improved in the management logic
  • The "course card" module, within the courses, has been rewritten and redesigned
  • In the classroom courses, the management of dates has been rewritten
  • Course dates: the possibility of sending a calendar file has been integrated
