Viewing and Completing Assignments

What to do next if you've received an assignment in MxU

How did I get this assignment?

You receive an assignment when a Admin or Owner on your MxU team selects specific videos and/or courses that they feel are important for you to watch. You'll get an email when you receive an assignment, in addition to a new notification in your MxU inbox (in the top menu bar). Assignment notifications can be marked "read" and cleared from the Inbox without the underlying assignment having been completed. If you have incomplete assignments, a more subtle yellow dot will appear next to the Assignments nav item (On desktop, you'll see the incomplete count in the mobile nav).

How do I see my progress on an assignment?

Assignment progress is shown in a "report card" view that you'll find in a couple different places in the app. They look like this:

You'll see your name and avatar image, or the name of the assignment, depending on which page the report card is on. For videos included in the assignment, the progress bar represents the time you've watched. For courses included in the assignment (like the first item in this image), the progress bar represents the number of videos in that course that you've finished watching.

You can see a report card for every assignment you've received by choosing "Assignments" from the main navigation (top of page), and selecting either "Open" (for incomplete assignments) or "Completed".

You can also see the report cards for everyone included in an assignment at the same time (This is only available for assignments you're also a part of, unless you're a Admin or Owner). Either choose "View Assignment" from the three-dot dropdown menu of one of your report cards:

...or, from your MxU inbox, choose "View Assignment" from the notification you received when it was assigned to you:

How do I complete an assignment?

An assignment is "completed" when you've watched the entirety of each video in the assignment, and/or each video in each course included in the assignment. For example, if you get video A and course B assigned to you, it will be "completed" when you've watched all of video A and all of each video in course B.

Can I watch all of an assignment in one place?

Absolutely. If you're viewing your assignments, you can select "Watch All" from the dropdown on your report card:

If you're viewing a whole assignment page, you can use the "Watch All" link towards the top:

And from your MxU inbox, you can select "Watch All" from the notification you received when the assignment was sent:

Any of these links will load up an on-the-fly playlist for you containing everything included in this assignment so you can watch everything without clicking back and forth. Just look how happy this makes Daniel Connell:

What if I've already watched some of the assignment?

If you look at your report card view, you'll see those items already marked as completed. Pro tip: You can hover over the icon next to the progress bar to get some extra info, like the date you completed that item:

2022-03-09 20.48.32

If you'd already completed everything in the assignment before it was sent, you'll see this message at the top of your report card (see next image). You would also have received a different email and in-app notification than normal, so you know you're already ahead of the pack.

Can you remind me about assignments?

Every Monday you'll get an email summary of any incomplete assignments you have, with some quick links to help get them completed. You don't have to do anything to request these or set them up.
