2331883 - Recommendations notifications are triggered after recommended item completion


Recommendations Newsletter Automatic Process (APM) continues to send recommended items notifications after item has been completed.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Peer recommends item to another peer
  2. User is notified about it by receiving Recommendation Newsletter notifications
  3. Frequency of receiving the newsletter is based on settings at APM level (notification interval)
  4. User completes recommended item
  5. Item continues to be included in the Recommendation Newsletter


This is expected system behaviour. The APM will trigger notifications even after item completion, as long as the item remains in the user's Recommendations tile


The APM won't stop sending the Recommendation Newsletter notification until the user performs the following steps:

  1. On the user's Recommendations tile, there is a circled "x" for each recommended item/program in the lower section of the item "card"
  2. Hover their mouse over the "x" and a tooltip labelled "Not Interested" appears
  3. Clicking on the "x" will remove the recommendation, and will no longer appear in the email notification


Also, you can recommend this as an Enhancement Request to change the behavior in future releases.
