Enhancements to Dynamic Learning Assignments

With the August 2020 release, the following updates have been made to dynamic learning assignments:

  • Even if a user has previously completed a version of training included in a dynamic learning assignment, they will be excluded from re-assignment if they re-enter the assignment criteria again in the future
  • The Recurrence date selector is hidden by default when the Processing Frequency setting has been set to Annually and the Recurrence setting has been enabled, which prevents the misalignment of the processing start date and the recurrence date. Also by default, the recurrence date is automatically the same as the processing start date.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically applied to all portals using the Learning module.

Important Note: Cornerstone’s legacy Proxy Enrollment API, available as part of Cornerstone API, is scheduled for deprecation. It is being replaced by the new Learning Assignment API. The Proxy Enrollment API end-of-life is targeted to occur with the Feb 2021 Release. For more information: See Deprecation of Proxy Enrollment API with the February '21 Release.
