Edge Import - Learning Load Enhancement (Training Loads)

Prior to this enhancement, when using Edge Import to update existing training, the unique identifier was required and all fields for data creation were also required, plus the fields that needed updating. This often meant that several fields had to be provided in the load even when a single field needed updating.

With this enhancement, when using Edge Import to update existing curricula, materials, online course metadata, tests, and videos, if “Learning Object ID” is selected as the unique identifier during import, then only the Learning Object ID is required. All other fields become optional. This allows for easier bulk updates because only the unique identifier and the updated fields need to be populated in the import file.

The following load types support this functionality:

  • Curriculum
  • Material
  • Online Course Metadata
  • Test
  • Video

ILT Events, ILT Sessions, and ILT Session Parts loads already support this functionality.

Bulk API is also supported with this enhancement.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

This enhancement enables easy bulk updates for existing training.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically enabled for all organizations using Edge Import. The template guide in Edge Import will be updated to reflect this enhancement.
