    Won’t let you even login if you have third party login credentials…for the other ‘1 click login’ option, the mac app takes you to lynda.com but expects a code you never received in the mac/desktop app. Terrible design. Fire whomever came up with it.

    This app was very useful for Lynda users on the mac. Not only could I focus my learning, saving my resources from being used up by Safari was nice. But it looks like if you are using macOS, then there will be no support for and Organization Log in, unless you are using the paid pro account. I was certain I could do this before, but for some reason, the have decided not to fix the problem…see this repsonse from tech support below... "After careful assessment, we've decided that we won't be moving forward with a fix at this time. LinkedIn continuously evaluates how features and products are used and we make adjustments accordingly to focus our resources on providing the most value to our members. Due to your login flow, you will be able to view content offline using either the iOS/Android mobile app, or the Windows 8.1 Desktop app as these have options to sign in with an organization portal.” Not sure if Windows in playing hardball with  on this since they own Linkedin, which bought out Lynda.com. Regardless, all we can do is hope and wait that they change thier mind on this. Untll then I’ll say it’s WAS a great app on macOS, but now, I can’t get much use out of it. So for now, two stars until they bring back Organization log in’s for mac users. If they can allow it for Windows desktop users, then it seems it would be easy enough to do this for macOS users. Until then, don’t bother downloading unless you are a paid pro user. Cheers!

    Seems a bit intentional but organizational log in is broken on the Mac. The code generator spits out non-working codes no matter how many times you try. I suspect they want to force people to watch via the browser to monitor user activity via javascripts.

  • No Organization Login

    There is no option to log in with an organization, and the 1-click login does not work. It redirects me to a page asking for a code, but I haven't even been given one on the app. This really needs fixing, as I can't even log into the application to further use it.
  • You should take some of your own courses

    Hey guys, the “1-click login” doesn’t work, I need it to login through my school's organization because your desktop app doesn’t include that feature in the main screen(which it should, since I am paying for the anual "Premium Membership”). How difficult can this be? Have been like that for monts. The app allows me to download content and watch it while I travel. Please show some respect for your users and if you are going to offer this app keep it up. PLEASE!!!
