Add a step to a path

You can add steps to a published path. If you’re a group administrator, or author, you can add any content that you can play yourself. If you’re a platform administrator, you can add any type of content.

Learners who earned the path before the addition of the new step keep it displayed in their profile, but won't have 100% progress anymore; they can play the new step to achieve 100% again.

You can add up to 50 steps.

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. On the right of the name of a path, click Edit (pen icon)
  4. In the Steps section, click + to add a course, a program template, or a path
  5. Select one or several items
  6. On the bottom right, click SAVE

If you add a program template to the path steps, do not forget to assign learners to one of its sessions (or add it to their Catalog). Otherwise, they will not be able to complete the step.

If you add a path to the path steps, do not forget to enroll learners in one of its path sessions (or add it to their Catalog). Otherwise, they will not be able to complete the step.

If a learner is registered to several sessions of the same path or program template, or if they can access several sessions from their Catalog, clicking on the program or path from the original path will redirect them to the session where their completion rate is highest, or (in case of equality) to the session that started most recently.

Mark a step as optional in a path

Marking a step as optional allows the enrolled user to earn the path, even if that step was not completed. This applies to all users enrolled in the path.

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. On the right of the name of a path, click Edit (pen icon)
  4. In the list of steps, in the column Optional, check the box

Reorder steps in a path

  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. On the right of the name of a path, click Edit (pen icon)
  4. In the Steps section, on the left of a step name, click and hold the click on a step, then drag and drop the step

If you reorder the steps of a linear path, learners can still play the steps that they started (even if they now also have to complete steps before them).

Add or edit a step's relative due date in a path

You can add a Relative Due Date to each step, to encourage learners to complete the step on time and help them stay organized. These dates are soft deadlines; learners can play the step after the due date.

Relative due dates are displayed in the dashboard of paths statistics (which allows you to identify Learners who fell behind).

The deadline is computed from the date of the learner's enrollment (not the previous step's relative due date).

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. On the right of the name of a path, click Edit (pen icon)
  4. In the list of steps, in the column Relative due date, click the dropdown menu and select Month(s), Week(s) or Day(s)
  5. In the field on the right, select the number of months, weeks or days
  6. On the bottom right, click SAVE

To remove a relative due date, click the dropdown menu and select - (instead of Month(s), Week(s) or Day(s)).
