With the February 2020 release, numerous curriculum versioning enhancements were made available via self-activation in Production portals.
With the October 2020 release, all portals that have not manually activated these curriculum versioning enhancements will be auto-upgraded. It is strongly recommended that your organization test these enhancements in Stage prior to manual activation or the auto-upgrade in October 2020.
The following enhancements were made to improve the curriculum versioning workflow:
- New auditing capabilities
- 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 functionality is auto-enabled in Stage. Pilot and Production will be opt-in using Learning Feature Activation Preferences until the October '20 release, at which point all portals will be auto-upgraded to the enhanced curriculum versioning features. Administrators should test this functionality in Stage before the functionality is enabled in Production.
The following existing permissions apply to this functionality:
|PERMISSION NAME||PERMISSION DESCRIPTION||CATEGORY|
|Course Catalog - View||
Grants access to view the learning objects in the course catalog and enables administrators to view the Course Console and the Popular Requests and Highest Rated widgets on the Learning Admin Console (in conjunction with the Learning Admin Console - View permission). This permission can be constrained by OU, User's OU, Training Type, Training Item, Provider, ILT Provider, User's ILT Provider, and User's LO Availability. This is an administrator permission.
Adding an OU constraint and a provider constraint to this permission results in an "AND" statement.
