Conditions for the LO to appear on the Action Items page:

  • The learning object (LO) must be active on the user's transcript. Archived LOs do not appear, regardless of status.
  • If registration is closed and there are no actions the user can take, then the LO does not appear.
  • If a start date is defined, the LO is only visible if the start date is the current date or has passed. If the start date has not yet passed, then the LO does not appear.
  • If the link expiration date has passed, the LO does not appear.

When an online course action item is displayed on the Action Items page, the following is displayed for each action item:

  • Color Strip - The left edge of the action item icon is color coded to represent proximity to the due date of the action item. For example, if the action item due date is past due, then the color strip is red to indicate that action is required immediately. If an action item due date is not eminent, then the color strip is green to indicate that action is not required immediately. See the Color Strip Key section below for additional information.
  • Title - This displays the action item title. Click the action item title to perform an action that corresponds with the current status.
