What's New for the 11 September 2020 Patch Release

The following is released along with the 11 September 2020 patch release:

Module Feature Description
Core Edge Import - Curriculum and Test Loads Enhancements With this enhancement, the Curriculum and Test loads for Edge Import now support recurrence. A new Recurrence field is now available for these loads, and this field is optional. This field enables organizations to set the recurrence settings for curricula and tests.
Core Edge Import - Learning Load Enhancements (Recurrence)

The following is no longer an acceptable value for the Recurrence field in for Edge Import Learning Loads because it is not a valid standalone recurrence setting:

  • 4 - Allow subsequent instances of training to be approved based on original approval. Leave unmarked to apply approval workflow for every request.
Core Edge Import - Learning Load Enhancement (Transcripts)

With this enhancement, the following enhancements have been made to the Edge Import - Transcript load.

  • Organizations can now update transcript records using Registration Number or Registration Date. Note: This functionality is not available for ILT Transcript loads.
  • Transcript load files may now include up to 250K records per file in Production and Stage environments. Pilot environments are excluded from this enhancement.
Core Removal of the "API Events" Tab from the Manage OAuth 2.0 Application Page With this deprecation, Cornerstone is removing the "API Events" tab due to low usage. Plans to re-imagine the feature to provide data that gives clients useful insights into their API usage are being considered.
Core Reporting 2.0 - Permissions Enablement Tool

With this enhancement, a Reporting 2.0 Permissions Enablement page is added to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Core Preferences so that top-level administrators can enable equivalent Reporting 2.0 permissions to be added automatically to the applicable security roles when a report is migrated from Custom Reports to Reporting 2.0.

This functionality is only available in Stage portals until the October '20 Release on 30 October 2020. This functionality is not currently available in Pilot or Production portals.

Core Reporting 2.0 - Usability Enhancements Multiple enhancements are made to improve the user experience for Reporting 2.0.
Learning Cornerstone Learn - Course Player Improvements (Android)

This enhancement has been delayed and removed from the Sept 11 patch.

With this enhancement, improvements have been made to the end user's online course launching experience. Users can expect a faster, smoother, and more reliable course launching experience. This enhancement includes backend enhancements and the following updates:

  • Up to 2.4x faster online course launching speed
  • Up to 2.5x faster online course downloading speed
  • Broader offline support for downloaded online courses
  • Simplified course player architecture which will reduce bugs that previously arose from the complexity of the existing player
  • Support for Table of Contents for SCORM 2004 courses
Learning Cornerstone Learn - Offline Materials

With this enhancement, users of the Learn app can also download mobile-enabled materials that have been configured for offline use. These downloaded material training items can then be launched offline and consumed, and users can mark them complete once the internet connection is restored.

Learning Cornerstone Learn - Picture in Picture Support (Android) With this enhancement, Android users can initiate Picture In Picture (PIP) when viewing video training items by tapping the Home button on their Android device. All Android device types support PIP functionality. All Learn App functionality is disabled while PIP is active. After exiting PIP mode, all app functionality is re-enabled.
Learning Cornerstone Learn - Training Push Notifications

With this enhancement, five training push notifications have been enabled for both the Android and iOS versions of the Cornerstone Learn app, along with deeplinking capabilities which take the user to the relevant application area upon tapping the notification banner. The following push notifications are included in this enhancement:

  • Training is Assigned
  • Training is Due
  • Training is Approved
  • Training is Denied
  • Training is Requested
Learning Learning Details Redesign - Ability to Control Data Display

The Learning Details Preferences page allows administrators to configure preferences for the redesigned Learning Details page. With this enhancement, in addition to determining which training types the Learning Details page is available for, administrators can also customize the types of metadata that display to users on the Learning Details page.

Learning Prevent Editing Provider Field for Content Subscription Courses and Playlists With this enhancement, the Provider field in the Course Catalog and Course Console has been disabled for subscription content and can no longer be edited by administrators. Disabling the Provider field for subscription content prevents future misalignment between subscription providers and subscription courses.
Learning "Price Visible" Preference Moved to Learning Details Preferences

With this enhancement, the Price and Training Units visibility setting has been moved from the Content Requesting Preferences page to the new Page Display section of the Learning Details Preferences page. This setting still controls price visibility on both the legacy and redesigned Learning Details pages. In addition, an Only Display when Value is Greater than Zero sub-option is available, allowing administrators to determine whether a price displays for training items with no cost.

This functionality was made available in Stage portals on July 15th and is available in Production portals with the Sept 11 patch.

Recruiting New Email Tag for "Interview Scheduling Notification - Applicant" Email

With this enhancement, a new APPLICANT.SCHEDULE.SUMMARY.NO.JOB.TITLE email tag is added to the Interview Scheduling Notification - Applicant email. When included in the email, the message does not display the job title of any of the interviewers but still includes the interview details. This allows recruiters to provide their applicants all the necessary information about the interview without displaying sensitive data about the interviewers.
