Create a Learning Need

  • Updated

Learning Needs is an Enterprise Plan feature, but we offer a free version in all platforms which can be activated by Administrators, with a maximum of 10 Learning Needs per group.

Members of a group where Learning Needs are activated can see all Learning Needs linked to a public group, or a private group to which they belong.

Platform administrators can see all Learning Needs.

Activate Learning Needs on a group

You can activate Learning Needs on the whole platform, or a specific group.

  1. In the left sidebar, click on a group, then click Settings.
  2. In the left sidebar, select Enterprise Plan.
  3. Check Activate Learning Needs on this group.
  4. If you’re an administrator of several groups, select the groups on which you want to activate Learning Needs.
  5. On the bottom right, click ACTIVATE LEARNING NEEDS.

Any member of the group can now create Learning Needs.

Create a Learning Need

You can create a Learning Need if you’re part of a group where the Learning Needs feature is activated. A Learning Need is visible to all users who can see the group.

  1. At the top right of the homepage, click + > Learning Need.
  2. Enter a title.
  3. Enter a description.
  4. Change the Group or keep the default one.
  5. Optionally, click Suggest experts to suggest users who might be a good fit to teach this topic.
  6. On the bottom right, click SHARE.

The default group from step 4 is selected according to the following criteria:

  • the user creating the Learning Need is a Coach or Administrator on that group;
  • the maximum number of Learning Needs is not reached.

If several groups correspond to those primary criteria, we apply the following secondary criteria (by order of priority):

  • the group is closest to the platform group, in terms of hierarchy;
  • the group has the largest number of members;
  • the group was created most recently.

Once the Learning Need is created, a popup will appear where you can optionally ping users, to encourage them to upvote the Learning Need.
