Edge Import - Learning Enhancements (ILT Sessions Load and ILT Session Parts Load)

With this enhancement, the ILT Sessions load and ILT Session Parts load are updated to better support session date and time changes.

ILT Sessions Loads

Within a portal, the Manage Events & Sessions pages allow for making changes to session part dates based on which session period date is auto-calculated. Prior to this enhancement, this was not the same experience in Edge Import where the session period could not be modified.

With this enhancement, ILT Session loads automatically calculate the session period based on session parts. Single part sessions, including part information, can also be created and updated using this load. When a multi-part session part information update is included in a load, an error indicates that the ILT Session Part load should be used instead.

To support this enhancement, the following field names are repurposed and changed:

  • Session Start Date/Time Period is changed to Part Start Date/Time
  • Session End Date/Time Period is changed to Part End Date/Time
  • Session Period Timezone is changed to Part Timezone
  • Location is changed to Part Location

Existing saved configurations must be deleted, and new configurations must be created. The ILT Sessions file in an active feed will not work. Feeds must be modified to associate the new configuration. To modify active feeds, the feed should be disabled to associate the ILT Sessions load file to the new configuration, then the feed must be enabled again.

ILT Session Parts Loads

With this enhancement, a new optional New Start Date/Time field is available to use with ILT Session Parts loads to allow modifying existing parts without session period restrictions. The existing required session part Start Date/Time field is used to create new session parts and identify the existing session part. One of the benefits of this enhancement is that customers will no longer receive the "Session part or parts should be created within Session period defined in Session Parts Load" error message in their data load .

Create a new configuration to import data using the new field; otherwise, existing saved configurations can continue to be used. When switching to the new configuration, active feeds should be disabled to associate the ILT Session Part load file to the new configuration, then enabled again.
