Deep Links Enhancements

Prior to this enhancement, the Register User and Launch Training deep link and the Launch Training deep link needed to be regenerated each time the training was versioned. This behavior resulted in additional administrator burden and could be confusing for users who clicked the wrong deep link.

With this enhancement, deep links for the Register User and Launch Training action and the Launch Training action stay the same even when the training is versioned. When the learner clicks a deep link, they will be navigated to the most recent version of the training unless they already have any version of the training on their transcript. In this case, learners will be taken to the version of training that is on their transcript. Deep links for the following training types are impacted by this enhancement:

  • Materials
  • Online Courses
  • Tests
  • Curricula

Behavior Examples

See the table below for expected deep link behavior for both deep links, depending on what version of training is on the user's transcript. This table applies when a deep link is created with an old version of an LO ID and the training is versioned. Version 1 represents any older version, and Version 2 represents the newest version, regardless of version number:

Training Version on Transcript

Register user and launch Deep Link

Launch Training Deep Link
No versions on transcript

Version 2 will launch

Learning Details of Version 2 will open

Version 2 on transcript Version 2 will launch Version 2 will launch
Version 1 on transcript Version 1 will launch Learning Details of Version 1 will open

Considerations

This enhancement does not affect the LAUNCH.TRAINING email tag. The functionality of this email tag remains unchanged.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically available in all portals using the Learning module. No action is required from administrators, and administrators can use the same deep link with an old LO ID to link learners to the most recent training, even when the training item for the deep link is versioned.
