Email Reporting Widget has been updated to v2.0 – quick info


The Email Reporting Widget has been updated to version 2.0.

This update has been underway for several months now. It has been a long and winding road and everytime that the goal was near I stumbled upon some small thing that needed to be sorted out first. The Widget Extensions capabilities that has been added to this version of the widget has been very big task, but now that the ground work is done I think that it will bring some good things in the future.

This new version contains a lot of new functionality as listed below:

  • Support for up to 30 custom variables.
  • Completely new PHP and ASP.NET files to handle PHP and ASP server communications. The ASP.NET version now only supports ASP.NET 2.0 to ASP.NET 4.5. (ASP.NET 1.0 is removed).
  • Ability to define a custom URL to the scripts so you can keep your scripts in one place.
  • One single widget to handle PHP or ASP.NET instead of two separate widgets as earlier.
  • Ability to make the widget send the result by clicking a button instead of having the widget send it automatically.
  • Better Widget Parameters interface.
  • Support for Widget Extensions (more info will follow later).

All previous buyers of the Email Reporting Widget for Adobe Captivate 4 / 5 / 5.5 (AS3) should have received an email with instructions on how to download the newest version free-of-charge. If you have not received this email then contact me through my site.

The new version will go live on the site for sale to new customers tomorrow.




  1. Downloaded updated widget. If I do not put a location but I am uploading all the folders to the lms, the asp file has to be in the folder in which the swf and html files reside. For instance, I have created a folder called: Module 4. The asp file is in there. THe widget wasembeded on the quiz slide. I could not add text boxes on the question slidem, so I added another slide before the quiz slide. this did not work. I removed the quiz slide per the instructions. Now the widget is on the question slide with the slide prior to the question slide being the text box slide that asks for the email, userid and custom1 variables. I have spoken with Elizabeth Nannery, but she is going out of state. She indicated that it should all work based on your instructions; but I am not getting any emails.

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I know that Elizabeth had a hard time getting the ASP version of the old widget to work with your installation of Microsoft IIS but I don’t know how she got it to work. She had discussion with several IT folks from your company but I was not in the loop on the solution achieved.

      One thing though – The widget should NOT be on a Question slide. It should be on the Quiz Summary Slide or any other slide after your last question slide.


  2. Hi. I’ve just downloaded the trial, but can’t find the earlier version for use within Captivate 5.5. There’s only the V3 file for use in 6 and 7. Am I missing something? Thanks.

    • Hi Shaun,
      The demo version for Captivate 5 & 5.5 is not included in that package. Can you get in touch through the contact section on my site – then I’ll send you the trial version.
