ILT Preferences - General

To configure ILT Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Learning Preferences > ILT Preferences.

Corporate Preferences (These settings are only visible at the top Division level)

This section contains corporate settings which are available to be modified on the ILT Preference page when modifying ILT Preferences for the very top division.

  1. Display Training Contact for Events and Sessions - Check to display Training contact on events and sessions for users.
  2. Default Training Contact field to the Admin creating the Event - This box is checked by default. When checked, the Training Contact field on the Properties step when creating/copying an event automatically populates with the name and email address of the administrator creating/copying the event. When unchecked, the Training Contact field displays the Select icon from which administrators can manually select a training contact. If the Display Training Contact for Events and Sessions box is unchecked, the Default Training Contact field to the Admin creating the Event checkbox is not selectable. Note: On the Properties step when creating a new event, even if the Training Contact field is populated with a default training contact, the Select icon is still available from which a different training contact can be selected. Only one training contact can be selected.
  3. Only display to End Users - Select Session number or Locator number to display to user.
  4. Allow penalty for withdrawal - If this option is selected, administrators can specify a Penalty for Withdrawal when setting up an ILT event.
  5. Allow costs to be associated with each session - Check to add the ability to detail Session Costs in a field on the Session Details page when creating a session. Session costs are only for reporting purposes and are not displayed to users.
    1. Click on Add Cost Type
    2. Enter cost type in text box
    3. Click Save icon
    4. Repeat Steps to add another cost types
    5. Remove cost type by clicking Remove icon
  6. Allow reservation of seats for a specific organizational unit - This option allows seats to be reserved by organizational unit for instructor-led training or virtual instructor-led training sessions. This option is unselected by default. Selecting the option enables the Reserve Seats by Organizational Unit option to appear on the Create Event - Session Defaults page and the Create Session - Details page.
  7. Allow enrollment restrictions to be placed on a specific organizational unit - Check to allow administrators to place enrollment restrictions by a specific OU. Checking this option adds a field to the Enrollment Restrictions section of the Details step of creating, editing, or copying a session that allows administrators to place enrollment restrictions by a specific OU. Note: If left unchecked, when creating, editing, or copying a session, the Enrollment Restrictions section only displays if the Allow enrollment restrictions to be placed on organizational unit types field is checked.
  8. Allow enrollment restrictions to be placed on organizational unit types - Check to allow sessions to enforce OU enrollment restrictions. Enrollment restrictions when selected at the session level will limit number of potential registrants from each OU (of the selected type).
  9. Add users on the waitlist to the interest tracking list for that event and location - When this option is selected, if a user joins a waitlist for a session, then the user is automatically added to the Interest Tracking list for the corresponding event and location. Users on the Interest Tracking list may be eligible for an early registration period when a new session is created, depending on the ILT Preferences.
  10. Allow option to grant waitlist opening to all waitlisted users at once - Check to allow sessions and events to have the option to grant the waitlist openings to the entire group of waitlisted users at once. Allowing this option does not deny the ability to grant a seat to one user at a time; it simply makes the radio button for the option appear. If this option is not allowed then all waitlist opening are granted to one user at a time. Note: The preferences below are Dynamic Preferences. If the parent division has checked these preferences, then the child division may view and manage these preferences.
    • Grant waitlist opening to one user at a time based on priority - Check to grant waitlist opening to one user at a time
    • Grant opening to all waitlisted users at one for first come first served basis - Check to grant waitlist opening to all waitlisted users at once
  11. Specify the number of days that the date for every added part defaults to from the last part - This box is checked by default and displays a value of "1" in the text field. The value in the text field represents a number of days and is used to determine the date on which every part added to a session begins and ends. The date is calculated by adding the value in the text field to the end date of the most recently added part. By default, the start and end date are the same but can be modified.

    If a value of "0" is entered in the text field in ILT Preferences and there is at least one existing part for a session, the Start Date and End date fields when adding a part will be the same date as the most recently added part.

    When the box is unchecked, the text field in ILT Preferences is not editable, and the Start Date and End date fields when adding a new part are blank. The dates must be selected manually.

    1. Default End Time for new parts - The default value is 5:30 PM. Changing the value in ILT Preferences changes the default end time on the first instance of adding a part to a session. The default end time for subsequent parts will be the end time of the most recently added part.
    2. Default Start Time for new parts - The default value is 8:30 AM. Changing the value in ILT Preferences changes the default start time on the first instance of adding a part to a session. The default start time for subsequent parts will be the start time of the most recently added part.
  12. Enable Session Parts Schedule modification for completed sessions - If this option is enabled, administrators are not able to modify date, instructor, or location information for the session after the session has been completed. For administrators with the ability to modify session attempts or to edit a completed session, the location, date, and instructor fields for the session are grayed out and read-only if this option is enabled.
  13. Default Session Completion Date to - This option enables administrators to select the method for calculating the session completion date. The selected method will be implemented for all sessions that are created after the setting is saved. These settings also apply to equivalencies. See the Session Completion Date behaviors section below for more information about this option. Note: This setting only impacts sessions that are created after this preference is changed. Existing sessions are not impacted. The following methods are available:
    • Session End Date - This option is selected by default. When this option is selected, all new sessions that are created will have the session completion date automatically set to the session end date. The session end date is the latest date of the last session part.
    • Roster Submission Date - When this option is selected, all new sessions that are created will have the session completion date automatically set to the date on which the session roster is submitted.

    Completion Date Behaviors

    Events always inherit the session completion date based on Default Session Completion Date settings. See the below use cases for more information about expected behaviors of this functionality:

    • If the user completes pre-work for a session, the completion of the session will mark the event as completed with the session completion date, based on ILT preferences.
    • ILT Preference settings are respected for post-work that is already completed or not required. The post work completion date is respected for required post work.
    • The e-signature completion date is respected, if applicable.
    • If the session includes required post-work, the completion of the session moves the session to a Pending Post-work status. After the post-work is completed by the user, the session is marked complete based on ILT preference settings for session, and the event is marked complete.
    • If a session has a required post-work item that the user has already completed, the completion of the session marks the event with completion date of the session based on ILT preferences.
    • If the user completes the pre-work for a session, the completion of the session marks the event with the completion date of the session based on ILT preferences.
    • If a session requires a signature, the completion of the session changes the session status to Pending Signature, and once the user signs, the event is marked complete with completion date based on session ILT Preferences.
    • If the event has two or more sessions, and the first session is completed, the first session's completion date is mapped to the completion date of the Event. When the second session is completed, the event will be marked complete for the second registration with the same completion date as the second session.

    Note: The following section of considerations applies to equivalencies. Equivalencies can only be configured at the event level.

    • If an event has an equivalent training and is bidirectional, and the session is registered and on a user's transcript, the session completion marks the event complete with the session completion date. When the training equivalency is in a Registered status on the user’s transcript, it will inherit the session completion date.
    • If an event is equivalent to Training A, and a user has Training A and a session of the event in a Registered status on their transcript, when Training A is completed, the event will be marked complete with Training A's completion date, and the session will have a second registration and inherit the session completion date. The event will inherit the session completion date according to ILT preferences.
    • When an event is equivalent to a training item, and the event is registered on the user’s transcript, when the equivalent training is completed, the event is marked completed with the training equivalent's completion date.

These preferences always display for all ILT Preferences pages regardless if the Division is a child division or parent division.

  • Show both Session Time and Date in Sessions tables - When this option is selected, the session date and time is displayed on the Sessions tables within Manage Events and Sessions.

Advanced Registration

  • Allow advanced registration - check box to allow events to have advanced registration. If this is activated at the event level, then all sessions for that event will by default have an early registration period only available to users on the interest tracking list for that event and location. This setting may be overridden at the session level. If this is not activated at the event level, then by default there will be no advanced registration period for sessions of the event. Note: The preferences below are Dynamic Preferences. If the parent division has checked these preferences, then the child division may view and manage these preferences.
    • Pre-approve advanced registration users - check to bypass approval requirements for users
    • Register advanced registration users upon approval - check to bypass registration requirements
    • Advanced Registration lasts for XX days after session is created - enter number of days for advanced registration period. Advanced Registration period begins when session is created.

  • Limit users to one waitlist per event - When this option is selected, users can only add themselves to one waitlist per event. If this option is selected and a user attempts to add themselves to more than one waitlist per event, then a message is displayed, indicating that they can only be on the waitlist for one session in the selected event. Note: This option is only visible if the Allow Waitlists option is selected.
    • When this option is selected, it limits users for all waitlist requests after the preferences are saved. The system does not remove users from any waitlists if they have previously been added to multiple waitlists for an event. However, if this option is enabled, a user is already added to multiple waitlists for a single event, and the user requests to be added to an additional waitlist for the same event, then the user must be removed from all other session waitlists for the event in order for the request to be granted.

Enrollment

  • Allow enrollment substitutions within organizational units - check to allow managers, approvers, cost center approvers, and administrators to replace registered users with another user without incurring withdrawal penalties or opening the seat to the waitlist. Note: The preferences below are Dynamic Preferences. If the parent division has checked these preferences, then the child division may view and manage these preferences.

  2. Remove users from interest tracking list after matching session - check to automatically remove users from the interest tracking list after they have been offered the chance to register for a certain number of session in their location preference
    • Enter number of sessions after which users should be removed from interest tracking

Overwrite Settings

Choose whether to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs. If you choose to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs, the selected settings are applied to both new and existing child OUs. Any previously customized child OUs are updated with the selected settings.

If this option is unselected, then only the child OUs that do not have customized settings will be updated, as well as any OUs that are added in the future.

A child OU that has not been customized always inherits from the parent, regardless of whether this option is selected.

An OU is considered customized if its preferences or settings have been changed.

Apply these settings to events created in the past

Check to apply these settings to events that were created before this change since the system doesn't grandfather in any existing events in the system that didn't carry the preference before
