Stop Auto-Populating Results in Administrative Search (Early Adopter)​

Prior to this enhancement, the initial loading time of pages in portals with a large amount of training objects was frequently delayed.

With this enhancement, the administrators can control the initial load of results on a page, reducing the time a page takes to load with all the results. It helps the administrators to search faster as they are not forced to wait for all the results to load before they can perform a search.

A preference is available in Feature Activation Preferences to enable or disable the functionality. When the preference is enabled, various administrative search pages display an “empty state” upon initial load. The administrators can still search for the full catalog by conducting an “empty search.”

The list of administrative pages includes the following: ​

  • Manage Sessions​
  • Curriculum Administration​
  • Material Administration​
  • Test Administration​
  • Question Administration​
  • Certification Administration​
  • Video Administration​
  • Manage Learning Assignments​

To enable the preference, go to ADMIN > TOOLS > LEARNING > LEARNING PREFERENCES > FEATURE ACTIVATION PREFERENCES. In the Disable Auto-Populating Results in Administrative Search section, click ACTIVATE.
