Create a custom training section on a group page

  • Updated

Who can use this feature?

  • Platform admins can add the custom training section widget on the platform group page layout to make the widget available to all groups.
  • Group admins can add multiple custom training sections on the page layout of their group only if the widget is made available by the platform admin.
  • With the Customization solution, group admins can add multiple custom training sections on their group page even if the widget isn't made available by the platform admin. For more information about the Customization solution, contact your Customer Success Partner (CSP).
  • Accessible on the Web Application.

A group page is composed of sections called widgets that you can add, delete, reorder, and configure. A custom training section is a configurable widget that displays courses and sessions from a group catalog filtered by skills and in alphabetical order.

Group admins can create a custom training section by selecting the section title and the skills that filter the group catalog. If no courses or sessions in the group catalog are associated with the selected skills, the section is hidden.

  • A group page can display multiple custom training sections.
  • The configuration of the custom training section is not replicated in subgroups.

Learners can click the expander arrow to view up to 16 items, or click See all to access the search results page with the group catalog content filtered by the selected skills.

You can add multiple widgets to your group page to customize the learner experience. For the full list of widgets, see Configure the layout of a group page.

  • If the platform admin then adds the widget again to the page layout of the platform group, the custom training sections in the group pages are restored with the same title and skills associated.
