Unique Identifiers

When loading external training records, the following can be used as the unique identifier for each external training record:

  • New - Select this option when you want to import new external training records.
    • The final unique key fields will be User ID, Start Date/Time, Transcript Status, and Training Title
  • Existing - Select this option if you want to update an existing external training record.
    • The final unique key field will be Learning Object ID.
    • You can create a custom report to locate the Learning Object ID of each external training.

Supported Transcript Statuses

The following transcript statuses are supported with this load type:

  • Completed
  • Registered
  • Withdrawn

File FTP

If the document name is provided, the actual file needs to be present on the Cornerstone FTP site in a separate dedicated system folder: LMS/ExternalTrainingTranscript.

The external training files will not be removed from the FTP after the one-time load.
