Publish a path session in the catalog of a group

  • Updated

Administrators and coaches of the group owning the path session can share it in their catalog.

Adding a path session to the catalog of a group allows members from that group to self-enroll to the path session (without the help of an instructor), once it has started. The newsfeed of the group will also show that a new path session is available for learners.

If the path contains a program, 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 the path contains another path, 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.

You can add up to 10,000 path sessions in the catalog of a single group.

Add a path session to the catalog of a group (or several groups)

  1. At the top of the homepage, click Paths.
  2. On the right of the name of a path, click pen.svg Edit.
  3. In the section Build the audience, click in the field Group catalog.
  4. Select the groups.
  5. Click outside the list to save.

For path sessions created with the legacy enrollment mechanism:

  1. At the top of the homepage, click Paths.
  2. On the right of the name of a path, click pen.svg Edit.
  3. In Catalog, click plus.svg with the number of registered groups.
  4. Select the groups.
  5. On the bottom right, click CONFIRM.
  6. Click PROCEED.

You can remove a path session from group catalogs by following the same steps, but unselecting the groups at step 4.

Add several path sessions to the catalog of a group

  1. In the left sidebar, click on a group.
  2. At the top right of the main section, click settings.svg Settings.
  3. Click on the Library & Catalog tab.
  4. On the left, click CatalogPath sessions.
  5. On the top right, click plus.svg.
  6. Select the path sessions.
  7. On the bottom right, click CONFIRM.

You can remove path sessions from the group catalog by following the same steps, but unchecking the path sessions at step 6 (newly added content may take up to 2 hours to appear in this list).

Automatically add path sessions to the platform group's catalog

Through advanced settings, platform administrators can automatically add newly created program sessions and path sessions to the platform group catalog (regardless of the permissions of the user creating the session).

  1. In the left sidebar, click on the platform group.
  2. At the top right of the main section, click settings.svg Settings.
  3. On the left, click Advanced.
  4. Scroll down to the Content visibility section.
  5. Check the box next to Path and program sessions are in the main group's catalog.

This is a unique option for both program sessions and path sessions. If you had previously activated the option for program sessions, it now applies to path sessions as well.

The option is not retroactive. Only sessions created after the box is checked will be added to the platform group catalog.

Add a maximum number of seats to a session

Once a path has been added to the catalog, you can define a maximum number of learners who can self-register to a session.

Session instructors can still manually enroll users, regardless of the maximum number of seats.

  1. At the top of the homepage, click Paths.
  2. On the right of the name of the path, click edit.svg Edit.
  3. Scroll down to the section Build the audience.
  4. Enable the setting Limit the number of self-registration seats for this path session.
  5. Enter the maximum number of seats.
  6. Click out of the field to save.

Once the maximum number of self-registration seats has been filled, learners will be put into a waiting list.

A seat becomes available if a Learner clicks FREE MY SEAT in the session homepage, or if a session instructor unenrolls a self-registered user. A notification is then sent to the first person in the waiting list.
