I’m excited to share the newest features and updates we’ve been working on to make the CPE experience easier and more intuitive. From sticky search filters that make it easier to find what you’re looking for, to the introduction of the Federal Tax Updates Podcast and ACPEN channels, there’s something for everyone. Keep reading to learn more about what’s new in Earmark CPE for February.
Quiz Question Feedback
If you find an error in one of our review or quiz questions, you can now report it for us to fix. Simply click the “flag” icon in the upper right corner of the question, provide your feedback, and click submit. We’ll receive an email with the question and your feedback.
Persistent Course Listing
When you view a course and then return to the course listing, you will now stay in the same place. Previously, you would be taken back to the top of the screen, and you had to scroll all the way back down. This annoyance is now a thing of the past.
Sticky Search Filter for IRS CE
If you filter by Licensing Body for IRS CE on the Courses screen, that filter will remain when you leave and return. We hope this makes the app more useful for our members who are Enrolled Agents and only want to see courses that qualify for continuing education credits with the Internal Revenue Service.
