Prior to this enhancement, when using Edge Import ILT Events load type, it was not possible to update the provider for an event or select the provider for a new session, even if a portal was configured to allow this type of update.
With this enhancement, administrators can update the provider for existing events via the Edge Import ILT Events load when the Enable to change provider for events. (Will apply to Events created in the past.) option is selected in ILT Preferences. This enhancement also allows for provider selection when creating new sessions via the Edge Import ILT Sessions load if the Enable to select provider when creating sessions. option is selected in ILT Preferences. See ILT Preferences - General.
How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?
This enhancement provides the ability to bulk update ILT provider for events and select provider when creating sessions.
- Providers are also referred to as vendors.
- If a portal is configured to support both primary and secondary providers for an event, then the ILT Events load will also support updating primary and secondary providers.
- Additional considerations can be found in this Knowledge Article.
This functionality is automatically enabled for all organizations using the Edge Import Learning loads.
The corresponding ILT Preferences for this functionality must be enabled in order for the event provider to be updated and the session provider to be selected during session creation. The Template Guide for these loads will also contain information to assist with load setup.
