Performance Improvement for Learning Email Digests

Prior to this enhancement, Learning email digests could fail to send if a large number of learning objects (LOs) were included in the email digest.

With this enhancement, to improve performance and ensure that email digests are successfully sent to learners, the maximum number of LOs that can be included in an email digest has been changed from 250 to 50.

Considerations

The following considerations apply to this functionality:

  • If a user has been assigned more than 50 learning objects (LOs), these excess LOs will not be included in the email digest. In cases like this, the TRANSCRIPT.LINK tag can be added to the email digest to allow the recipient to easily navigate to their learning transcript and view all of their assigned training. For managers who have a large number of direct reports with a large amount of assigned training that would no longer be captured entirely by an email digest, reporting functionality can be used to view users' assigned training.
  • Only Training Due and Training Assigned email digests are impacted by this enhancement.
  • This enhancement does not impact any system logic regarding the assignment of curricula.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically enabled in all portals using the Learning module. For more information about email digest management: See Email Digest Management.
