Once you have made a request for a learning resource via the Learnerbly app, depending on your company's settings, this will either be sent to your manager for approval or processed right away.

You can keep informed of the status of your requests by logging into your Learnerbly account, clicking the icon in the top-right corner, and then 'Your requests'. This will show your request as one of the following stages:

  • Request received: This means that the request has gone through the system and has been received to take it to the next stage.

  • Approved: Once your request has been received, if it requires approval from your manager, it will show you the 'Approved' option without a green tick which means that it is awaiting approval from your manager. Your manager will receive an email once you make a request, as well as follow-ups if it's sitting with them for a little while. If your request shows as "Pending", that means that it needs the approval of your manager. Please approach your manager and ask them to check all your pending requests.

    Once approved, there will be a green tick above this option as shown in Image 1 which means our team will then further look into it to fulfil it. It may be that we need some further information from you in order to process this - so please check your emails to see if we've been in touch with an update.

  • Auto-Approved: Once your request is received, it will be approved automatically as it does not require your manager's approval. You will see a green tick immediately on the same day of your request made as shown in Image 2. Therefore, such requests, directly are taken to the final stage which is processing and purchasing the request.

  • Purchased: Your request has been purchased for you, and is on its way!

Note: If there are any additional details needed to process your request, please add this in the Notes to Learnerbly box when submitting your request as this will help us speed things up. If we need any further information, we'll be in touch with you via email and wait for up to 7 days for your response. If we do not receive any response from you then we will cancel your request and refund your credits, however, fear not, you can always re-request that resource again. 🙂

How long will my request take to arrive?

Each request varies depending on its type and complexity. Once it is approved, we start processing your request right away.

If you haven't received your request or heard from us within the below-given timelines for the relevant type of your request, please get in touch via Intercom and we are happy to further look into it for you:

  • Digital Content: Digital content (such as Kindles, online courses or other ebooks) normally takes between 24 - 48hrs to be received once they are "Purchased by Learnerbly". Please get in touch if it takes longer than the given time period.

  • Physical books: Books (such as Amazon books or other hardcover/paperback books from other providers) fulfilled by the Learnerbly team as well as API typically takes 3 working days to arrive. Sometimes, based on the delivery period, it can take up to 1 - 2 weeks. Please do get in touch if your request hasn't arrived after 2 weeks.

  • Others: Other resources and providers can take up to 2 working days to be fulfilled.

    Note: If you requested a book using the feature "Resource not on Learnerbly?", it should be with you between 2 - 5 working days. Please get in touch if it takes longer than the given time period.

Taking longer than the given time period?

If your request is taking longer than usual, it might be because of the following reasons:

  • Your company does not have sufficient Learning Credits on your account to process your request. Please contact your Learnerbly Administrator to resolve this. More information can be found here.

  • There is some backlog due to the high number of requests made by all your colleagues at your company. You can expect to have an update on your pending requests in the next 3 - 5 working days. If you haven't heard back after that time, please get back in touch again.

  • Books will typically take around 3 - 5 days to arrive but this can be longer depending on your location. You can find out more about online courses and other providers, and what to expect in this article.
