Playlist creators can share their playlists to Learning on Workplace by Facebook by copying the system deep link for the playlist in the learning management system (LMS) and adding the link to a post in the Workplace community. Other users in the Workplace community can click the playlist link to be navigated to the LMS, where they can view and interact with the playlist. Note: Users must sign into the LMS before they are able to view the playlist.
This is a one-time setup that links the learner's Workplace ID with their corresponding Cornerstone ID. Once a user goes through the linking workflow, they will no longer be prompted to enter credentials, as long as the user has an active Cornerstone portal session.
