Unique Identifiers

When loading test transcript data, the following can be used as the unique identifier for each test:

  • Test ID - Select this option when you have Test IDs available and want to import new transcripts or update existing transcripts.
    • The final unique key fields will be User ID, Test ID, and Transcript Key.
    • In Custom Reports, the Test ID is displayed as Training ID.
    • Tests created via the user interface will not have a Test ID. To update transcript records for tests created via the user interface, you must use the system-generated Learning Object ID.
  • Learning Object ID - Select this option if you have the unique system generated Learning Object IDs available and want to import new transcripts or update existing transcripts.
    • The final unique key fields will be User ID, Learning Object ID, and Transcript Key.
    • You can create a custom report to locate the Learning Object ID of each test.

When updating existing transcript data, the following can be used as the unique identifier for each transcript record:

  • Registration Date/Time - Select this option to create new or update existing transcript records with previously loaded registration date. Recurrence must be enabled for the learning object in the Course Catalog before adding multiple registrations. The final unique key fields will be User ID, Learning Object ID, and Registration Date/Time.
  • Registration Number - Select this option to update existing transcript registrations. A new transcript registration cannot be added using this option. The final unique key fields will be User ID, Learning Object ID, and Registration Number.

Supported Transcript Statuses

The following transcript statuses are supported with this load type:

  • Completed
  • Exempt
  • Registered

Note: Edge Import can be used to update a transcript status to "Completed" even if the current transcript status is not supported in Edge Import. For example, Edge Import can update a transcript status from "Registered/Past Due" to "Completed." Some restrictions apply and are included in the updated template guide.

Considerations

The following considerations apply to this load type:

  • Transcript records for test loads can be uploaded using Edge Import when they are in a Registered status. However, the Score field value is not applicable for the Registered test transcript status. If a Score field is provided in the Edge Import load, an error message will result for the record.

Due Date Action Type

The optional Due Date Action type field allows administrators to remove due dates or update due dates for learning objects within a curriculum when the due date for the child is updated using Edge Import.

This field accepts the following values:

  • Update ONLY for this transcript - This option will update the due date only for the selected learning object type, and it will not update the due date for learning objects within a curriculum.
  • Update for ALL LO associated transcript - This option will update the due date for the selected learning object type, including if the learning object is within a curriculum.
  • Delete ONLY for this transcript - This option will delete the due date only for the selected learning object type, and it will not delete the due date for learning objects within a curriculum.
  • Delete for ALL LO associated transcript - This option will delete the due date for the selected learning object type, including if the learning object is within a curriculum.

Use Case: The Edge Import transcript load is used to update the due date of a training to July 1. This training exists in a curriculum and has a due date in the curriculum of August 6. If the value in the Due Date Action Type field is "Update for ALL LO associated transcript," then the data load updates the training due date to July 1, including the due date within the curriculum.
