Curriculum Versioning Enhancements - Overview

With the February 2020 release, the following enhancements have been made to improve the curriculum versioning workflow:

  • New auditing capabilities
    • A new Structure History page accessible from the Course Console for curricula captures versioning and structural updates
    • A new Structure History page accessible from the transcript displays user-specific curriculum updates
  • Due date recalculation logic - Due dates are only recalculated for curriculum child training items that are versioned or added to the curriculum structure (this logic is applied when the Due X Days After Most Recent Assignment Date option is selected for the child training in the curriculum structure
  • Expired appended training enhancement - Expired appended materials are hidden from the curriculum structure instead of remaining unactionable
  • If a newer version of child training exists, the user will be upgraded to the new version instead of retaining the progress from a prior version, regardless of the child training item's sequence.

This enhancement was made available on Jan 23 2020.

Note: This project is part of the larger multi-release Learning Compliance Scalability Initiative. The release of this project concludes the Learning Compliance Scalability Initiative.
