What are company codes?
Barclays Digital Wings can be a helpful tool to many businesses, both large and small. If you are a business owner, you may wish to use Digital Wings as a learning and development tool for your employees. If we provide a company code we can provide your organisation with curated pathways, experiences and spaces that look and feel like your own. If you want to find out more send us a mail to email@example.com where we can show you what we can do.
What is a pathway?
A pathway is a specific set of learning, chosen by a company. You can access your company pathway on your homepage if you’ve registered using a company code and your company has set up a pathway you’ll see the learning your company wants you to complete, that’s relevant to you. You can still access the rest of the site by clicking ‘explore our learning'.
How do I create a pathway?
Pathways are created on a case-by-case basis, depending on your company’s needs. If you’re interested in a company code or pathway, or you already have a company code and would like to find out more about creating a pathway, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have questions about the type of learning in the pathway
If you have any other questions about what learning you should do, or if you want to see different learning in your pathway, contact your employer/company.
I’ve forgotten my password, what do I do?
If you’ve forgotten your password, please click on the ‘forgotten password’ link that is just under the log in section, and follow the steps. You will then be emailed a link to follow to reset your password. When choosing a password please follow the instructions given in the link.
If you no longer have access to the email address on your account, then this will need to be changed. Please contact us at email@example.com with the details of your new email address and we will make the necessary changes to the system. Your new email address can be any one of your choosing, whether home, work or personal.
I didn't get my password reset e-mail?
This is most likely to happen if you have used the wrong email address when requesting a password reset. The email address you input must be the same email address you used when registering.
If you are using the correct email address, then please check the spelling and make sure you do not add any extra spaces to the end. We also suggest you check your ‘Junk’ mail folder and your email security settings, as password reset emails can be blocked by certain spam filters.
If you can’t remember what email address you used when registering, please contact us with your full name so we can confirm your account email. firstname.lastname@example.org
My Barclays Digital Wings app has stopped working
If for some reason the app does not seem to be working, please uninstall and then reinstall from the relevant App store. Don’t worry you won’t lose your points; you’ll simply need to log back in using your original email address and password once reinstalled.
The videos don’t seem to be working?
All videos may require time to buffer before they can play so please check that you have a strong internet connection. They are also best viewed using Chrome.
