What do you like best?

I like that mind flash give you the option to create quizes and test my staff. Mindflash helps me train new clinical staff. I upload modules and courses to assist me in training multiple individualds at the same time. I am also able to see the reports which show how many employees have taken the course and how many have failed and passed the course. I am also able to print out certificates and give to employees when they pass the course. I also like that employees are able to review the courses that they take as a refresser or reminder of how to do certain things. Also, being able to archive courses and users so that there are not still active is really hepful as well. I also enjoy being able to group users, this is helpful because as new hires are onboraded, I can send courses and modules to the group of new employees, instead of having to pick individual users our of a group of 500. I also like that you can add multiple modules to certain courses so it is all grouped together instead of individual modules. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In my opinion the only that that I dislike about Mindflash is sometimes the quiz sections the different scores. Sometimes my trainees pass the module, but fail the course so I feel the module and course grades should automatically be graded the same, instead of individual. Also, the automatic reminder emails that my employees get, they happen pretty often. I can't seem to figure out how to turn off the automatic emails. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Mindflash has MULTIPLE ways to help you implement training at your facility. From the modules, courses, and quizes, Mindlfash makes training a breeze. You are able to insert powerpoints, videos, and documents into your modules to show your training staff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some business problems that Mindflash has helped me solve is being able to training multiple individuals at the same time. Some benefits I've realized is that you can create modules and then add quizes at the end of the modules. Also being able to training old employees on new requirements that may come up. I use it for initial training, but being able to get older employees on board with the new processes that may come is really helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Training courses are easy to set up and function smoothly. There are good options for designing courses to suit my needs. Reports can be created from within courses or at the reporting tab. It is an outstanding program aside from the glitches and issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We used this for staff training for two years with no issues. Then Mindflash was acquired by another company and started making "upgrades". This has resulted in glitches--which would be expected, but the problem is that it takes forever to get them resolved. For months, I've been told that the issues are on a list for the tech team to look at. In the meantime, I have to find a workaround to get what I need. Fortunately, it seems to work correctly on the trainee side, so it's just the admin side that has issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I love Mindflash's features and abilities, and it has suited our needs very well. It's easy to set up and use, both on the admin side and the trainee side. I only wish there were quicker response to glitches. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We onboard hundreds of independent contractors every year. Mindflash helps us provide consistent training nationwide and keeps accurate records. Trainees are able to complete their courses at their convenience, on any device. Mindflash has helped us improve our training program dramatically. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the customer service I received from Jason Poon. He has always given me same day response. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have more options with the learning check questions, such as inserting reference pictures and charts for some questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Mindflash is a cost-effective LMS for companies who have a lot of content to upload and manage. They provide same-day responses on questions that I have, and they offer tutorials on how to make my training more effective. They were the right solution for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Every problem has a solution, and Mindflash support ALWAYS has the answer. There hasn't been a single issue they haven't been able to resolve for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The front end could use a facelift. I think it's lacking some substance. However, our members are there to learn, not to be impressed with fancy graphics, so this isn't a gripe by any means. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're in the market for an LMS, Mindflash is the way to go. The administration side of it alone saves time and money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a real estate association, we have to keep our members in check. There's some renegades out there that think the rules don't apply to them. Our orientation programs have helped the new agents stay out of trouble by teaching them the consequences of not following the rules. Mindflash helps us deliver that message.

What do you like best?

The ability to use modules and replace contents of a module without having to change the audio too

Very responsive Support Team

User field customization: it allows you to add subgroups to classify according to your needs

Robust reporting: easy to customize reports based on fields Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If a quiz or module gets stuck there is no way to mark it as passed for a user, you need to create an in person Course alternative

I wish it displayed predetermined values on the subgroups that matched what the user was entering - I find my users enter free text that does not match my expected options Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Online training that users can register and complete on their own time, I really like the option to share a link and have them register without depending on an invite from my team. Users enjoy being able to download their own training certificates. It provides great training records I can easily share. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the reporting aspect. We use it as part of our performance improvement plans for our care management agencies who are struggling in specific areas and need further or refresher training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a completion report that is emailed to the supervisors and the management to keep updated on who has and has not completed trainings. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do not hesitate! Mindflash has been a tremendous help in bringing new employees on board, refresher/retraining, a resource for staff to go back to on their own should they feel they need a refresher and a valuable tool for the quality team to help direct staff to key areas to increase their quality scores. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I stated above, we are using Mindflash and our courses/modules to assign to care management agencies and their staff to help improve the overall quality of an agency. This process is anticipated to increase the care managers awareness and knowledge and ultimately result in positive affects on their quality audit scores. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the modules, that build the course and the course automatically updates with the edited module. I like the reports that can be downloaded and that I can filter the trainees. I like the trainee groups which makes it easier to invite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that the trainees and the courses or modules that are archived remain in the list. I'd rather they go to a separate list. I don't like that if there is only one module for the course then a course has to be created. I do not like that the users have to update their passwords and the administrator can not do anything to help the user if there is a problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps my company meet their ISO requirements for training. It is easy to send an invite, although I would like to edit the emails that are sent. The program is easy to use and straight forward. The reports are easy to download and edit. I am able to change when the training is due and can get data to see how quickly the training was completed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Mindflash makes it easy to create an online training program from scratch. We have been a user since 2014 and we went from 100% in person training to 100% online training within weeks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only area that is lacking is detailed reporting and tracking. The reporting function gives you the ability to track completions and scores but not much beyond that for individual users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, having an online platform makes it hard for my users (college students) to complete, mainly because they don't check their email. This isn't necessarily a MindFlash issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

That the participants can access the training when it suits them.

Not everyone can or wants to attend face-to-face training. Mindflash solves this problem by allowing you to host any content you've created for delivery anytime anywhere.

What do you like best?

Our organization is new to Mindflash and our folks just began taking our training courses. Two users experienced freezing with a couple of our slides. I contacted Aaron, our partner in training, who then contacted Matt Morris, who responded quickly and was able to resolve the matter in a very timely manner. He kept in touch with me as he was working on a solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The slide issue narrated above. I've also had two GoTo meetings with Aaron who has helped me get started on the administrative side as well as show me how I can streamline my work on the LMS to get the information I need more efficiently. The benefits: My users who had experienced the freezing were able to complete their courses which was helpful to both them and to me. I am also very happy to have Aaron walking with me - he listened to what my needs are and has been very helpful in finding the most efficient ways for me to meet them. I am thrilled with the support I've received from both Aaron and Matt. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
